About Kim

Kim Musikant - Owner of Active Life Fitness
Success means something different for everyone. For Kim Musikant, it’s helping her clients not only meet their fitness goals but surpass them. “When people tell me they feel better since they started working out, or their clothes fit more comfortably, and they feel stronger and more confident, that makes me feel the most fulfilled.”
Twelve years ago when Kim was started out in the fitness industry, she was encouraged to write a personal mission statement. To inspire, educate and empower people to achieve their goals for better health. Living by that motto has taken her from part-time fitness instructor at the Westfield Area Y, to full-time personal trainer and then business owner with her partner and husband, Marty Musikant.
Kim has helped both men and women reach beyond expectations and achieve their highest potential. With her extensive knowledge of nutrition and exercise, Kim develops a targeted approach for each client. On the gym floor, she’s meticulous about proper technique. She’s also a natural motivator, inspiring her clients to believe in their abilities and to never stop striving toward their dreams. The results speak for themselves: Her clients often find they are capable of much more than they realized.
Kim models her fitness philosophy outside the gym, as well. A mother of three, she ran the New York City marathon in 2007 and 2008. She enjoys reading, gardening, and walking in the fresh air. “Being fit carries over into every other area of your life,” she says. “A healthy body equals a healthy mind and a healthy attitude toward life.”
Kim's Fitness certifications include:

National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM) — Certified Personal Trainer — Fitness Nutrition Specialist
Functional Aging Specialist by the Functional Aging Institute
Functional Movement Screen
Physical Mind Institute - Pilates
TRX Suspension Training
Kettlebell Athletics, Level One Coach

It's all in your Head

The other day, one of our Active Life Fitness members was complaining about her "problem area" as she rubbed her belly. She said, "If only I could get rid of this" grabbing a chunk of her midsection.

I told her that the only "problem area" on her body was her head! If we believe we have a problem area, our brains tell our bodies, "keep that area a problem."  The subconscious mind doesn't interpret the goals; it only responds to what it is programmed to do!

Our brains do not differentiate between positive or negative thoughts about ourselves, it just carries out the instruction. In fact, our subconscious minds control 95% of what we do!

How do our conscious minds turn into our subconscious minds? By believing our "truths" about ourselves such as "I have a problem area" and then replaying that story over and over again to ourselves and others until it becomes embedded in our subconscious.

How do we fix it? By thinking posi…

No Magic Pill, Only Sheer Will

Proper nutrition will change your body composition.

Poor nutrition will prevent you from changing your body composition.


Many people believe they can "work off" last nights indulgences or add an extra workout to make up for a summer of chardonnay, but unfortunately, it doesn't work that way.

It takes hard work and pig-headed determination to make these changes. If we are serious and stop the excuses, it will happen. It's not sexy. There is no magic pill, only sheer will.

"I have no self-control."
"Get some." 

Self-control is something you must generate. I promise it is not going to show up on its own. We must be intentional until these new thought patterns become habits.

Here's your armor:

1. Preemptive Strikes. Be prepared for that doughnut offer by practicing saying no (or no thank you to your coworker). My father used to say birds of a feather flock together, and he was right (now I tell it to my kids). Your coworkers who indulge i…

A Cop at the Door

I was awoken by a faint melody in the middle of the night so I turned to my husband to ask him if his cell phone was ringing. He was one step ahead of me because the next words out of his mouth were...

"There's a cop at the door"

My heart sank, adrenaline flooded my body, and illogical thoughts raced through my head. Before I could remember if any of our teenage children had gone out the night before, I was already up the stairs doing a head count. Everyone was home. A sense of relief filled me as I walked down the stairs; I knew that I could handle any news after that. 

"Do you own a business on South Avenue in Garwood?" "Yes" answered Marty. "There is an active fire in the area". In the area? He didn't have any other details. Maybe its Taco Bell I thought....that stuff is bad for you anyway. We were in the car within minutes, parked the car and headed toward the flurry of activity. A woman with a warm smile and calm demeanor asked us if w…
