Hi! Thank you for visiting Self-Love and Fitness™.

I am Karisa Karmali, Founder of Self-Love and Fitness™, ISSA Certified Personal Trainer, ISSA Certified Online Fitness Coach, and NASM Certified Nutrition Coach. I am currently focusing on fitness equipment and offering stand-alone workout plans (coming soon ~ August 2022) to reach many people at once and avoid the time limitations of 1 on 1 coaching (which I no longer offer in order to make space for brand affiliate marketing deals which I also enjoy).

The brand:

Our specialty? Helping athletes, driven professionals, entrepreneurs, and leaders get back on track or level up through quality equipment, fitness plans, and lifestyle inspiration.

Pushing myself mentally through fitness has helped me in so many ways, that is why I love high athletic goals. 

A bit more about the brand story and my obsession with giving back:

Aside from inspiring driven people to level up athletically since a strong body is connected to a strong mind... 

This brand was built as a mechanism for me to channel adversity into something positive. 

Using my anxiety reframe methods daily, I know powerful ways to cultivate resilience. 

Building my own business is also a huge part of ensuring that I can be in a position to give back to the charities I care about, mostly those around Youth in Care because I was one. 

Being a recipient of the Youth Social Entrepreneur Award from Algonquin College for Community and Social Responsibility (2011), I want to continue to inspire others with difficult upbringings or circumstances and, of course, to inspire sexual violence victims to take their power back.

The odds were against me, I grew up in foster homes (since the age of 4); however, I would never call myself a victim. Why? It was just fuel for me.

We can always win in the end if we use adversity to our advantage.

Self-love also fuels self-discipline, which is needed for athletic performance, and to navigate the mental highs and lows of life in general.
