“Every year I start with a new years resolution…. and it’s to lose weight.
Just to be in it for 2 weeks and then fail…. then I came across Karien and thought “you can do it” I closed my eyes and wrote in for her USN fat to fit 12 week challenge.
Through her delicious recipes and eating plans, eating healthy has become little effort for me and exercises a little easier every day… and the weight has started to fall.
A woman never reveals her true weight on social media… but what I can say is I lost 14 kg and 107.5 cm in total and fit again in a size 12 denim (I was a size 16 )😲
Thank you Karien…. I am so grateful for you.
Not only are you the best coach…. you are an angel sent from above.”


Her programs is kickassly awesome. Something that definitely works. Her programs is not a quick fix, but a lifestyle. Her supportiveness, encouragement and her willingness to help makes the journey a lot less difficult.


There is no trainer like Karien van der Wal. She is simply the best and her meal plans and exercise videos is so easy to follow. You WILL see results. Just stay focussed and give it your best shot.


Yes! Best trainer I ever had. She is always there to help, and very supportive. She makes a healthy lifestyle easy and fun! Thanks Karien!


The most amazing trainer I have ever had! She is supportive, always willing to help and her programs actually work. She is the perfect choice for anyone who wants to live a happy and healthy life!


“Must say Karien’s 12 Weeks Challenges changed my life .. This is my New Normal .. Nothing feels weird anymore .. Best of all the food is delicious! Karien Thank you for everything and for all the motivation the last 6 months. I’m not one moment late .. Karien you inspire not only me but many people. One can see your passion, in your work .. A motto where I stuck: “Push yourself, because no one else is going to do it for you “The results will payoff and belive me the results are Amazing … Again many Thanks for everything .. 💕😘🤗”


One of the best online trainers I know. will recommend karien to everyone.
I lost 15 kg so far from January. When one feels you want to give up, there are motivation messages not only from her but from all the awesome ladies who take part in the challenge with the most delicious recipes. Thanks to you all you are awesome.


Yess she is amazing at what she does. She not only motivates but inspires you te become the best version of yourself. She makes dieting a lifestyle and enjoyable. I would recommend her anytime ❤️


Karien changed my whole life. mentally and fiesies. Eating healthy is a lifestyle and not a diet. Her eating plans are so delicious and filling. I also learned from her that the number on the scale is just another number and you can throw your scale away. I’m much happier and can’t without her workouts or eating plan.


Are you looking for someone to help you with your fitness program? Do you train at home and need help with a training program or someone to help keep you motivated? Do you need someone to help you with an eating plan?
Well I suggest you try one of Karien van de Wal’s challenges. Backed by Usn Sports Nutrition and with fantastic prizes from the likes of USN and Liquid Salt – you can’t lose!
I started my first challenge with Karien in April 2018. I was training mainly at home on my own. My biggest downfall was my lack of control with what I ate. I love chocolate and cooking with cream and puddings and sugar in my 15 cups of tea each day! I had tried to start 12 week training programs on my own but failed most days around about 4pm when the munchies kicked in…. Only to binge for the rest of the day and start again the next!!
At rock bottom and 67kgs I joined Karien’s challenge and I have not looked back. The first challenge I lost but still battled in the kitchen but whenever I needed help Karien was available to help and motivate and steer me in the right direction. I love the training videos as they show you the correct technique to do each exercise and you can go back to them when ever you need to. Since then I have done 2 more challenges, one complete and I am currently doing my third. Life has made some challenges harder than others but being part of Karien challenges have helped keep me on track.
I am now sitting at my lowest weight in years but that is only a small part of the picture now. I am stronger physically and mentally at 44 years old than I have every been. I am healthy, I understand my body and my cravings. I know I can’t cut out carbs because that just leads to a bigger cheat. I have used USN products for over 20 years and I love their products.
I can honestly promote Karien’s as an online trainer. I love her honest outlook on life and that we are all human. If I were you I would not hesitate to join the April challenge! I will be there

Karien is one of the best motivation for women in the fitness industry. I’ve been doing fitness shows for 2 year and since doing Kariens 12 week challenge. I’ve learned so much more on having a balanced lifestyle and still doing what I love.
She is a big motivation for me and would recommend anyone, men, women, women with children to use her as a trainer and a lifestyle coach. Loving the workouts and great tips for yummy healthy recipes.
Karien helped me to stay healthy and motivated throughout my busy life. She always tell us to eat healthy even if you skip a workout. You can’t outwork a bad diet was her words.


When I started her New year new goals challenge, i was unhealthy, unfit and unhappy with myself as a whole. Karien motivated me to get back into a healthy lifestyle with her easy to follow meal plans and gym program. She gives a lot of insights on how to make living healthy easier. I went from a couch potato in January to being admitted in the Gauteng West Kickboxing team that will participate at the national championships end of April. I’m healthier, happier and have lost a lot of cms, kgs and fat Im sure (going for my inbody scan tomorrow). Definitely worth it to follow Kariens program!


I love Karien`s plan and her passion for what se does. It doesn’t feel like a diet or like a challenge. I think I have found my trainer. Will support her all the way. Karien all the way!!!


Yes anytime Karien motivates you each step of they way. Her meal plans is easy to follow and exercises is easy and you can do it at home or at the gym. I lost cm and lost weight. Would recommend her for any full time working mom.


“Most definitely the best trainer she motivates you as a person to get the best out of you, I am with Karien now for 10 months and got the best results ever. Her meal plans are simple to follow and her videos for online training very nice.”


“Karien van der Wal is the best trainer there is. Her online training is amazing. I am busy with my second challenge with her as my trainer and I already had amazing results after my first challange in 2019.
What is very close to my heart with what Karien is doing, is that she is helping ladies from all walks of life to be able to work out at home with her online training.
She is just an amazing person and trainer.
Thank you Karien.🌸”
