Watch a “behind the scenes” video of how I surprise the “Ugly Model”, Kevin Kreider, during a recent interview with Nydia Han from 6 abc action news! A few months ago, you may have seen my video on YouTube of when I started my journey with my personal life & fitness coach, Kevin Kreider. Since then, I finished my work with Kevin, and he moved to LA to continue his work as a life coach, model, and actor.
Last Thursday, I was so excited Nydia Han (6abc action news) invited me to surprise Kevin during her interview with him for an upcoming show (Kevin came back to Philly for the holidays). Special thanks to Nydia Han and my manager, Brittany Mondrinos, (Brittany Mondrinos Consulting)for making this happen! As a DJ, many of us struggle between working our nightlife schedules and trying to keep up with other people’s “regular hours.” Our long hours and constant traveling can also take its tool. For me, I absolutely love traveling and being a DJ. This past year was amazing! I traveled to Dallas, TX, Palm Beach, FL, Raleigh, NC, Richmond, VA, Washington, DC, Las Vegas, NV, Rehoboth Beach, DE, Long Island, NY, (of course I was also in my hometown Philly) and many other super cool places!
While the touring DJ life is seriously “living the dream”, I started to get frustrated and down on myself when I would miss workouts and/or eat unhealthy foods. I wouldn’t feel as confident in myself before a show. When I’m home it’s easy for me to eat right. Yet, as many of you know, it’s not always easy to find healthy, low fat choices when you’re on the road. Since I’m a pescatarian, I find it even harder to find the foods I want to eat. Working with Kevin really changed my life.
Through his personal life experiences, he helped me to overcome the challenges I was having in my personal and professional life, due to my hectic DJ schedule. As a female DJ in a male dominated industry, I was also experiencing times where I felt, “I’m not good enough”, and sometimes I still do. To this day, I show up to DJ events where people are surprised I’m the DJ and not a guy. Kevin, helped me to work through these feelings and teach me how to be more confident in myself. Luckily, I also have many male DJ friends who give me constant support 🙂
Kevin helped me to find balance in my life through coaching me on how to keep my mind, body and spirit all on the same page! Through our work together, he taught me how to make my eating habits fit my schedule. I learned how to save time on my workouts, while still gaining great results. More importantly, he taught me how to enrich my spirit, which in turn has given me more peace and happiness in my life.

I hope all of you receive some great presents too! Maybe a new DJ Controller….. ha ha Happy Holidays everyone! – Michelle Lee (aka DeeJay Shelly).
