My best friend & college roommate shares how she loves her body as a NURSE ๐Ÿ’ž

Hi gorgeous! Today I want to introduce you to someone very special ~ one of my best friends from college, Kerry! Kerry and I met at freshman orientation in Boston and then we were roommates. We immediately bonded over fitness ~ we went to the campus gym together, she introduced me to spinning, and she was always front row in all the classes I taught. She helped me make amazing playlists too!

After we graduated, Kerry went on to nursing school at NYU and I was so proud of her! Now, Kerry works hard day in and day out to care for others and keep them healthy. For her, fitness is a small slice of time that she can dedicate to herself. It makes me so happy seeing her find joy through fitness โ€” especially since she takes such good care of everyone else!

It means so much to me to see Kerry in Studio Tone It Up supporting our amazing Studio trainers just like when she supported me in college! Plus I got to shoot some workouts with her, which was so special! Even when she says she just comes to the shoots for the snack table ๐Ÿ˜‰ But I know itโ€™s really because she cares so much about the Tone It Up Community!

Watch Kerryโ€™s video and give her tons of love today!!

And a special shoutout to all our TIU nurses, night shift nurses, doctors, and caregivers who work so hard every day to keep everyone healthy and still find time for themselves. We love you and appreciate everything you do ๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿค—

  1. So great to learn about Kerry! I completely agree with everything you said about fitness being an outlet after taking care of others all day, I am in veterinary school and do the same only with animals!

  2. I love this! Definitely what I needed to hear this morning โค I work in health-care and it’s so easy to forget about taking care of yourself. Thank you ladies for being so inspiring ๐Ÿ˜

  3. Yaaahhh Kerry!!!! I am also a nurse, and I love TIU to escape as well after a long day work. Thank you for sharing your insight and motivation. I am moving into a role as a nurse practitioner in a new setting and job- your change part of this video really spoke to me. Thanks so much and good luck in nursing and your TIU journey!

    1. Good luck in your new role Sarah! You’re going to rock it and we’re so proud of you! xxo

  4. Thank you so much Katrina for sharing your friend’s story. I love TIU sooooooo much for the support and lifestyle it provides. As a busy night shifter my health is so important so I can care for my patients. Love ya Kat!

  5. Thank you for your motivating words! I’m a teacher so this resonated with me. I get up extra early to complete my booty call and have a little quiet time.

  6. I am also a nurse for a plastic surgeons office!!! Definitely need to take care of yourself first in order to take care of others!!! Question??? I love Kat’s leopard pants!!! Where are they from??? Happy Valentines Day!!!

  7. Happy Valentines!! Just started a brand new job as a nurse and was so worried about doing TIU and 12 hour shifts at the same time. I was so encouraged by Kerry’s story and the fact that she does Studio Tone It Up too! I have found the app to be the BEST help for getting in some ‘me time’ before/after those long days as well. Feeling so empowered to keep making StudioTIU a priority as I transition to this new job. Thanks Kerry!

  8. I love this! I work night shift in 911 and theyโ€™re 12.5 hr shifts and sometimes it is hard to sneak in a workout before or after a shift.. but thankfully I get a break have a nice on site gym to utilize! Thanks for your encouraging words!!

  9. OMG! I love this! I almost went to NYU, but went to Pitt instead for nursing! I agree with needing an outlet after work! I am proud to share my profession with you! I am so happy to have TONE IT UP!

  10. OMG this is just what I needed !
    I am a doctor (general surgeon) and I can relate to Kerry so so so much !
    I’ve been doing TIU for 5 years now & it’s been a life saver … I almost burnt out last year and TIU really helped me re-center myself and focus on myself during that hard time. K & K really help me escape the harsh reality of what I do sometimes. I LOVE their energy & positive attitude and their kind words after a workout. Yes, I get to save lives with my two hands, every single day (it’s crazy, I know !). It’s an amazing and empowering feeling that unfortunately comes with seeing so much hurt and pain… that can get to you. Thanks to TIU for reminding me that I am entitled to take care of myself and my body, so I can keep doing this for a long time ! Love you girls, you changed my life <3

    1. thank YOU for all that you do to serve others in your community! we appreciate all that the RN’s do! love u! xxo

  11. Thanks for posting this. As a medical professional it’s sometimes hard to believe I deserve anything good when I see SO many people suffering everyday, but that’s not true. How can I serve if I’m depleted? We do tough work and I’m so thankful for my sisters who are in it with me! Thanks for sharing Kerry!!

  12. How does she do it?! I’m not even a nurse yet, just a cna, and I can never find time to drink water, go to the restroom and when I do eat it’s like “eat as much as you can as quickly as you can” which usually ends up being pizza that the rns order๐Ÿ˜ฉ. I try to make it a priority to take care of myself but feel like my first priority are the residents I care for or am just too busy… then I get home late and eat again right before bed… not good.
