Love Sweat Fitness. Hi everyone! Welcome to Love Sweat & Fitness!
My name is Katie Dunlop and ill be your REAL Health & Fitness coach. My number one priority is to bring realistic approaches to living a healthy life. A little bit about me…I am a certified personal trainer and fitness instructor with a passion is help others live a fit, healthy and balanced life. I can’t even begin to tell you how excited I am to share Love Sweat & Fitness with you! No one body is the same and my goal is to help you discover your perfect body, while having a lot of fun along the way!
For years I struggled to find the right balance in my life. I was constantly battling between my love of food and my desire to be in better shape. After trying every fad diet there was I finally said enough was enough! There had to be a better way to do this that doesn’t involved such extreme measures, I want to enjoy life afterall! It turns out that while not always easy, the formula is simple. All you need is a little Love, Sweat and Fitness! These three things are what helped me lose over 40lbs and keep it off for good!
LOVE is all about my passions. The things that motivate me. My husband, friends and family, gorgeous sunsets, delicious food and a great bikini!
SWEAT is when we jump the hurdles. These are the mental and physical obstacles that we all have to overcome in order to start making the change we want. That conscious effort to get up early to squeeze in some abs or choosing a side salad over fries while telling ourselves we CAN do this and actually making a plan to DO it. Making the decisions to do something and follow through are the moments that determine whether or not we will be successful
FITNESS is the work. The things we do each day to see the changes happening. This is the physical work we put in to strengthen our bodies. Training longer, increasing weights, adding a mile, trying a new workout…The action you take to achieve the results that will make you feel great inside and out.

I’m glad that I found your web page because now I am working out with your videos and following your tips about healthy life. Right now I am doing the Summer Sizzle Challenge and to be honest you are killing me and I love it. I work out every day since 5 years ago and I moved to United States 5 months ago and I was struggling with the food here but finally I think I am on my way to be healthy again 🙂
Hey Yuliana! I’m so glad you found my page too 🙂 The Summer Sizzle challenge is a tough one, but all the pain is good! Keep it up <3
Hi Katie. I got your nutrition guide a few days ago and I have done a couple of your workouts so far. My main struggle is kicking the sugar habit. What do I do when the cravings come? I know how bad it is for me, but it’s so hard to resist! Any tips would be helpful! <3
Hey Cat! That’s awesome! I know how hard sugar can be to kick. It is definitely very addictive. At first, the best thing to do is find healthier substitutions. Whether it’s an apple with almond butter or a protein bar that taste like a treat, you will need to start eliminating it as much as possible. It’s not easy, but the more you can just say no, the better. After a few days or weeks you will truly stop craving so much. I also recommend making sure you get a good dose of healthy fats (nut butters, coconut oil etc,)… Read more »

I guess I am writing to you to see if you could give me tips on where to start. I always get motivated to go out… Read more »
Hi Emily! I love hearing that you really just want to be the healthiest you can! That’s the best place to start. It truly needs to be about that first:) So excited for you! If you haven’t seen it yet, I just posted a video on motivation which would be super helpful in giving you some tips for getting started and continuing. I also have some older blogs you can search that talk about “getting started” My best tip is to take it one day at a time. Set smaller realistic goals that are measurable and attainable. Even if it… Read more »
Hi Katie! I just recently came across your youtube channel and watched your morning routine video. After watching it I typed in your website and started browsing. After browsing and watching your youtube video I become inspired. I have been wanting to get in shape for a while, but I never know where to start with the eating/nutrition and fitness aspects. I mean I know i obviously need to cut out sugar, but i dont know what else exactly I should be doing. I am going to be going into my junior year of highschool this August and I would… Read more »
