During my fitness journey, I found some amazing coaches who helped me achieve my goals. They are all different but have helped shape me into the person that I am today.
Kevin Blankenship – The Challenger
In 2011, I met the person that started me on my fitness journey. Kevin is the owner and a personal trainer at Next Level Fitness (located in Gahanna & Westerville). After I dropped my first 25 lbs following his meal plan and workout routine, he then challenged me to compete in my first NPC bikini competition. He completely re-crafted my body through helping me add more muscle mass while losing the final 25 lbs for competition. As a former champion body builder, he retired from the stage to focus on expanding his business. However, Kevin and his girlfriend decided to compete again to support me on my first bikini competition. We competed together at the 2014 NPC Ohio State Competition, and all three took home trophies. Kevin is not only my coach, but also a member of my family and is willing to do anything for me (hence the picture). If you’re looking for a great family owned gym, check out Next Level Fitness!
