Kara Cline: Lost 95 Lbs.
After having her second child, 32-year-old Kara Cline began to experience panic attacks and knew she needed to make a major life change to be better for her family. She told FIERCE Training that when she went away to college her routine changed because she worked out so much in high school.
“I became complacent and the weight just kept piling on,” the certified public accountant says. “I didn’t really work out, didn’t go for walks and I just hung out with my friends and ate a lot of food I shouldn’t have eaten.”
In September 2016, after spending a few months trying to lose weight, Cline decided to start using Daily Burn. Daily Burn helps you get more exercise, and also provides workout videos and nutrition guidance.
“They’ve got a bunch of different programs you can choose, but then they also have the Daily 365 workout,” Cline explains. “It’s a 30-minute streaming workout that changes every single day. I really liked that it kept me intrigued and I didn’t get bored.”
Her workouts took place in her living room three to four times a week, while her kids, ages 5 and 2, were nearby.
“Since they were quick workouts, I fit them in whenever I had time with little ones running around,” she says. “I focused on interval training as well as cardio and body-weight exercises. The trainers always offered modifications, so it felt more personable.”
After losing more than 100 lbs., she is now proud of her 185-lb figure.
“That time was an emotional roller coaster. I moved to a new city. I kind of completely redid my whole entire life, but all for the better. I feel great and am no longer ashamed by my weight,” she says. “It really boosted my confidence and my comfort level to just try everything and live a more active, healthy lifestyle.”
