My Interview with Krista Kokot
Me: Tell us a little bit more about what you do and how you came to start it?
Krista: Hi, I'm Krista Kokot, Krista Kokot Coaching, KristaKokot.com. I am a Life Adviser, enthusiast, dream chaser, fear facer, and lover of life. I have found a passion in giving people Permission to Quit all negative thoughts & actions that no longer serve them in the direction they want to in life.
I help people to face whatever fears that are blocking them from living their best lives that God created them for. I am passionate about people just like you, lean into discomfort, give strategic tools to walk through through those times of uncertainty knowing that the outcome will only make us stronger and wiser.
God has given us the ability to chose - and Fear will always be part of our lives, but with the help of people we surround ourselves with, our Faith in something much bigger than just ourselves, I help others just like myself come to point of embracing the discomfort and start growing into the best version of themselves possible.
Me: How do you think your Fitness impacts your Faith and your Faith impacts your Fitness?
I started up my own fitness bootcamp 6 years ago, and through all those huge changes and struggles I came through, my God was always right there with me. God has given me this body to use as a vessel for His teachings here on earth, in whichever way that looks. I believe we need to keep our bodies healthy and happy through whatever fitness looks like for each of us. I spent too many years counting calories, and what the fat content was in each thing that went into my mouth and not enough time giving thanks to the Creator of my body that He made strong, healthy, happy and beautiful. SO today, now at 42, I love my body image, I love teaching others that Fitness is a MUST, but what that looks like is very different for each and every one of us. Just like God created each of us unique and special on the inside, we are unique and special on the outside too.
Me: What is the number one thing that you see women struggling with today? How do you think Health/Fitness &/or Faith can help her in that struggle?
Krista: Women struggle with comparing themselves to false advertisements out there. I have found over years of continually struggling with my own happiness, and trying to find it in other people, food, fitness, things, money...nothing would satisfy my own happiness until I hit rock bottom and loved myself for who God created me to be, and nothing Less. Finding a healthy relationship with fitness and food was a game changer as well as loving the skin I was in, and relying on my Faith in God. That will be my number one thing that a lot of women struggle with today.
Me: What is the biggest lesson you've learned recently?
Me: I am doing a series on "Fruitful Health" where we are talking about how to grow the fruits of the Spirit in your health. We are talking JOY. How do you find a way to ENJOY taking care of your health?
Once I figured out what worked for me... that gave me JOY!!
