Hi, My name is Kim Calvert. I am 29 years young and I started Dynamite Nutrition in 2014. I was a very different person at that stage in my life and through my own journey both in my personal and professional life I now live the life I love. I have acheived this through challenging my fears, following my passion setting goals higher than I could ever believe possible, and exceeding them!
However, I am just a girl. I have the same insecurities, the same fears and same problems that 90% of people do, young, old, male or female. What makes me different is that I want more! I believe I can achieve anything I want and its that belief that allows me to share my story and help others to feed their passion and starve their fears!
This is where it all began. I competed and won in 2014 at the NABBA Northern Irish Championships. I plan to work closely with my coach and trusted friend Phil Graham to compete again in 2016 and take my sporting career to the next level in the aim to achieve my Pro Card in the future.
When not in preparation for stage, I am working hard. Not only on my physique, but on my mind and on my business. I run cooking workshops, motivation seminars, speak at fitness exhibitions, businesses, gyms and also run my own Lifestyle course along with offering 1-1 life coaching.
Clinical Nurse Specialist
My full time occupation for 7 years was a Clinical Nurse Specialist within the Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service. I was privileged to work with the young people of NI and again empower and promote not only their mental health but overall health and wellbeing. With only having been qualified 7 years I have worked my way to the top of my profession quite quickly due to the belief that anything is possible and working on my craft.
Being a registered mental health nurse (RMN), I have been able to bring in my knowledge and skills to Dynamite Nutrition and educate people on how to change their mind set and overcome/manage various mental health disorders such as; depression, anxiety, eating disorders and so on, along with managing Autism/Aspergers, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and also offering therapeutic strategies to aid recovery in a Cognitive Behavioural Therapy approach. I also specialise in Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy.
HUMAN PERFORMANCE EXPERT/SUCCESS MENTOR
I have now left my profession to follow my dreams. Yes I left the long term, secure job. Why? Because I felt a burning desire to do more, be more and have more. I wanted to serve others on a bigger scale and I also wanted to have control of my own life. My income, my time and my passions.
I am now self employed and I have never been happier. I am now a Human Performance Expert teaching others how to get success within their own lives. Was this move scary, yes. Have I regretted it? NO.
I am currently a Proctor Gallagher Consultant. I work side by side with Bob Proctor, the legendary human performance expert, you might know him from ‘The Secret’. To find out more about this work please go to the ‘Thinking into Results’ section.
Putting them both together is what makes DN so unique!
Mind-set is everything. Without positive cognitions (thoughts) or self awareness/acceptance we are limited by our fears. You can have the best PT/coach, eat the highest quality food or train twice as hard but without the mind being in line with your passion and goals, you are merely a shell of what you could be. This is why DN is so unique as it focuses on all aspects of true health, wellbeing and happiness!
