Kim has coached thousands of highly successful leaders worldwide. She helps people align their thoughts, words, and actions while gaining even more self-awareness and congruency. Bringing together the skills and mindset leaders need to run their personal and professional lives.

Kim founded, cracking the code on physical and mental performance. Kim empowers achievers globally to develop and sustain the Mind, Body, and Spirit of a Champion.

When Kim was born, she had a cast from the waist down and, eventually, a metal bar down the sides of her legs to help turn her feet and hips out while they formed and grew. Doctors thought she might never walk. Coupled with being an overweight child, Kim knows what it’s like to overcome challenges. Especially when well-meaning teachers, preachers, and creatures tell you you can’t or won’t be able to do that because you’re not good enough. She privately struggled for years with anxiety, self-doubt, remorse, and self-sabotage. Then Kim decided to take charge of her life. (Interested in more of my story? Please read it on my Wellness Universe Profile page.)

Kim desperately searched for answers via conventional medicine to find out what was wrong with her. But instead, found that traditional medicine could not help her. So she traveled the world working with some of the best colleges, universities, and top practitioners who discovered NLP. She found that nothing was wrong with her. She had the power to change herself by utilizing the tools she learned to heal her body, mind, and spirit.

Kim Pauline is bridging the great divide and driving the integration of fitness and healthcare to fuel positive client outcomes.

Larry Kurzner – Vice President Corporate Development and Alliances October 3, 2020, Larry was Kim Marie’s client

“I have had the sincere pleasure of knowing Kim for eight years. In that time, I have grown to respect her knowledge of the body and how to help people (Me) achieve emotional and physical goals and objectives. As a competitive Masters athlete (I am a rower), I have had many physical struggles and injuries over the years. However, as I started a complete program with Kim, balanced with the proper nutrition and motivation has helped me achieve the best shape and minor pain I have had in 10 + years.

As a human being, Kim is bright, thoughtful, warm, and caring. So her personality and knowledge have created the perfect clinician, coach, and friend to work with to optimize my lifestyle. For that, I am thankful and also can not recommend a person any more highly.”
