Boot Camp Challenge

Dec 5, 2018

Hi friends, I hope you are having a most awesome day!

I want to introduce you to my friend, Kayla Burton, BCC trainer and licensed therapist. Kayla and I met over ten years ago when she started in my Boot Camp Challenge® as a camper.

During her first nine years, working out was not a problem for her. She loved it. She loved the workouts, the training, and even the running. But the nutrition was a different story. She struggled with understanding and accepting how her body responded to food, nutrition, and dieting.  So, this year, Kalya decided to make a change.  And, she realized, it was a mental change that had to happen.

What Kayla teaches others about mental health, she started applying to herself. She learned how to set boundaries. She learned being SELFISH is really SELF CARE. And she learned what she loves to do most, to move her body, is actually a great prescription when struggling with depression. 

We started our chat with the physical health (and how she lost 43lbs!) and quickly moved into the mental. We chat for a LONG time (a great time for a glass of wine or a long run ) and here are some of the topics we cover:

  • How to move through depression.
  • Why being SELFISH is a positive thing.
  • Why healthy people say NO.
  • What to gut check the moment you feel guilt.
  • The number ONE thing you need to know to love yourself.

I love how Kayla wrapped up our podcast.  She if said if you are struggling with any mental challenges, reach out for help.  Seek out a doctor, a licensed therapist, or a friend. You are NEVER alone.

As always, thank you so much for taking the time to listen to our podcast. If you would like to reach out to Kayla for additional information regarding mental health, please email me at and I will connect you. 

Love you lots,
