self love and self acceptance

Courtney's Transformation Story

Courtney’s story and transformation after going through EmpowerHer Coaching:


What was your biggest concern before you started working with Devon?

My biggest concern before signing up with Devon was if it was going to be worth the investment or if it was really going to help me.

…soon enough, I discovered, it was worth every penny.

What did you struggle with the most before this program and how did Devon help you overcome it?

My biggest struggle I had before I started this program was that I hated my body. I was completely wrapped up in body image insecurities. I hated having my picture taken and would never let people post them unless I approved. Devon helped me unpack and overcome those insecurities. She made me realize cellulite and my body shape was completely normal. That I was defined by my size. And most importantly, she taught me to love myself—just as I am. She showed me the beautiful soul sitting inside me whose worthy of love and appreciation.

What was your favorite part about working with Devon?

My favorite part about working with Devon is her potency to motivate and having her be my biggest cheerleader!! She was / is my hype queen. I could tell her one small thing I did, and she would celebrate the small success with me. She inspires me and I always love hearing what she has to say.

Also, she’s relatable and real AF. It feels like you’re talking to a friend, not just a trainer or coach.

What is one life-altering lesson you learned through this program? 

One life-altering lesson I learned from Devon is to be compassionate toward myself. To be loving to myself like I am to others. To be kind and gentle with my words when I speak to myself.

What was your biggest concern before you started working with Devon?

My biggest concern before I started working with Devon was that I was always going to be unhappy with myself. I looked in the mirror and hated what I saw. I was not happy with my appearance OR with my life. I struggled with my emotions and expressing how I truly felt. I was just letting life pass me by, as I sat in misery.

What did you struggle with the most before this program and how did Devon help you overcome it?

Before I started this program I struggled with loving myself. I would try to workout and diet but would not see results quick enough so I would give up. I would tell myself, "Oh well. I’m always going to be like this for the rest of my life." This triggered binges and more self-sabotage. Devon helped me overcome all of this by showing me how to love myself. She provided me with tools to help my find myself again.

Now, it's not just about the results. For me, it's about feeling great in my skin. I’m happy with myself and can embrace any size or form my body takes. I achieved what felt like was an impossible thing to realize.

What was your favorite part about working with Devon?

My favorite part with working with Devon was always having someone to talk to. It didn't matter what I was going through, she made time for me—to listen, to hold space, to give me advice. She's not just a fitness coach, but she’s your friend. She changed the way I look at the world and myself.

What is one life-altering lesson you learned through this program? 

One life-altering lesson I learned during this program is that you are NOT your size, your weight, or your appearance. You are your heart, your mind, and your soul. You are so much more than just a body. I learned to respect my body, to care for my body, to love my body. And I also realized how important it is to take care of your head space and protect your mental health.
