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.”
