Fitness coach Veronika Quintana-James of Lady The F*ck Up is living her dream career, changing women’s lives through online coaching.
“Growing up I thought that I would always be the one needing the help.”
“I never got good grades, I was very slow at learning. I grew up to believe that I wouldn’t make it far in life, I would be broke and would have a boring job that I hated.”
“I never thought I would be good enough to be a leader or someone that others looked up to for inspiration and guidance to become a better version of themselves.”
It wasn’t until Veronika scored her dream job as a personal trainer she started to believe she found her niche. When she saw the effects of spreading her knowledge and how her clients were evolving physically and mentally, it became her ultimate goal to change as many lives as she possibly could.
Shortly after she came to realize that although she loved personal training, it wasn’t enough for her to impact women in the ways she knew she could. She realized personal training was just a small fraction of what clients needed to tone up and truly make a difference in their bodies. She knew with personal training alone, she couldn’t help her clients with their nutrition and mindset which would be the missing pieces to making a lifelong change.
“Often the biggest barrier for people trying to get into shape is their mindset. It’s not their genetics, lack of equipment, lack of time, or even lack of motivation.”
“To change your body, you need to first change the thoughts that flood your head and that’s the hardest part for a lot of people. You need to learn how to think like a winner before you can be a winner. You can’t be recycling thoughts that got you out of shape in the first place. You have to rewire your brain to have the thoughts of someone who has the results you want. Even if you don’t truly believe you can achieve it yet, having a doubtful mind will sabotage your results. Whether you realize it or not, your thoughts dictate your actions from a subconscious level, you have to make sure they are always in line with what you want to achieve, or else it just won’t work.”
After a year of personal training, Veronika found her true passion. She became a transformation coach for the leading women’s online coaching company Lady The F*ck Up where she can influence her clients more profoundly. She can, not only focus on improving their mindset, nutrition, and personal training, but help them transform their lives altogether.
She’s helped clients lose up to 100lbs, attain shredded abs for the first time, and get out of what some considered their physical rock bottom. She has also helped her clients improve their confidence and self-esteem, which improves their lives not just physically but emotionally and mentally. All while being able to live their life, sustain their progress, and saying goodbye to their old self.
She takes a lot of pride in her work and gives her client’s the tools and knowledge to not only, achieve their goals, but also become self-sufficient. “I don’t want to work with a client forever, as much as I love building connections and helping people, I would be doing a disservice to my clients if I didn’t let them go off on their own to live the healthy lifestyle I have helped them create. I know my job as a coach has been done when they no longer need me. It’s a great feeling sending them off on their own because it means I’ve impacted another life.”
Although Veronika is a young coach at 23 years of age, she is already making a huge impact on the lives of many women around the world using her experience in the field, wisdom, and uplifting personality- which is much appreciated especially during these unprecedented, demotivating times.
“I don’t just want to just change people’s bodies, I want to help change their lives.”
