Client of the Month of June: Kevin Lafone

Client of the Month of June: Kevin Lafone

Please introduce yourself:

My name is Kevin Lafone and I’m from the Eastern NC town of Kinston. I graduated from UNC Wilmington in 1998, and from the Pennsylvania College of Optometry in 2002. I currently own and practice as an optometrist at Carolina Eye Care on Catawba Avenue in Cornelius.

I was first introduced to RAW Fitness when Mike asked me to lunch, and wanted to talk about visual dysfunction that can occur following brain injury or concussion in athletes. We discussed the topic, but we also discussed my fitness goals. I had become frustrated because a nagging injury had left me unable to run, and I really wasn’t doing anything. Mike helped me with managing the injury, and also introduced me to the RAW fitness way of doing things – which just started with getting off my butt! Since that time, I’ve found a great fit at RAW. I’ve also realized that no matter how busy work gets, I have to make time for the gym. Management of my job and life’s stresses are so much easier when you’re physically healthier! RAW helps me achieve that.

Favorite Exercise:

Pull ups, because they used to be impossible for me.

Least favorite exercise:

Rear Foot Elevated Split Squat

Favorite cheat meal:

Beer

Tell us a fun fact about yourself:

I’m a competitive BBQ cook, and love to cook in general.

What have you enjoyed most about your training?

Anytime I PR or just accomplish anything in the gym that I couldn’t do before.

Do you have any goals for 2017? Either in the gym or out.

I just want to see myself and everyone around me enjoy life to the fullest without having to face the stresses that often drag us down.

We asked Kevin’s trainer Kym to say a few words to help us get to know Kevin better and this is what she said:

“Kevin is a fantastic client and so much fun to work with. Every week he comes in with a positive attitude looking to be challenged. No matter how crazy an exercise may seem he is always excited to give it a try and will strive for excellence while doing it. He is one of the many reasons I love being part of the Raw Fitness team!”

Thanks for being a part of our small fitness family Kevin. We are the better for having you here!
