Registered Dietitian, Certified Personal Trainer, Certified Wellness Coach

Kathy “kj” Jordan, MS, RD, LDN, CPT is a registered dietitian, National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM) certified personal trainer, and certified wellness coach with a Masters degree in food science and nutrition. For over 25 years, kj has been helping women and men lose weight, feel good about themselves and achieve their lifelong weight loss and fitness goals.

With her mission in mind, Kathy launched several outpatient nutrition clinics and behavioral weight management programs for hospitals in Greater Boston and the Midwest. As the founder of body transformation by kj℠, Kathy has helped innumerable people through customized coaching programs and classes for weight loss, eating behavior management, as well as nutrition and fitness workshops. Recently, Kathy published Below the Surface… Weight Loss Transformation by kj. Reading her book is akin to taking her 12 week weight loss program. It provides key strategies and tools to inspire and instruct you to achieve weight loss success.

Kathy was only 15 when she realized that her own issues with weight and body image needed a better solution than constant dieting. This led her to study how eating behaviors and activity affect weight, energy level, outlook and quality of life. Motivated by her personal journey to overall health, fitness and contentment, Kathy wanted others to know that weight loss didn’t need to be tackled alone. Over the course of her career, kj has empowered thousands of clients, patients and individuals (and now, readers) to get in shape and lose weight…without getting on the diet roller coaster!
