Stop Starting Over With Devan Kline – 019

Are you holding yourself back?

Maybe we’re not experiencing health, happiness or fulfilling our purpose because we believe the lie that we’re flawed or that everyone else matters more. It happens to me more often than I’d really like to admit.

My guest, Devan Kline, Founder and CEO of Burn Boot Camp (which just opened its 300th franchise location) joins me to talk boldly about why this happens and how we can overcome it. Of course we talk about physical fitness; but we also discuss mental, emotional, relationship and spiritual fitness.

I pick his brain about what it will take to reach our goals and he shares how he overcame a dysfunctional childhood to build a booming business while still happily married to his middle-school sweetheart, Morgan, and how they’re growing and prioritizing their family all along.

DK recounts memorable client moments, what’s changed in Burn philosophy and operations over time and what he would tell his younger self. Whether you’re part of #BurnNation or not, you’ll find inspiration for your life in this episode!

Born in Battle Creek, MI Devan grew up in rough conditions. Most of Devan’s childhood was riddled with violence, government assistance, drug abuse, alcoholism, moving from state to state, and capped off by abandonment from his mom as teen. He spend his time on sports fields and creating businesses to escape his home life and gives credit to baseball and Morgan (now wifey) for saving his life.. They now share a wonderful life together living in Cornelius, NC with their daughter Cameron and two sons, Max and Ryan. Devan played baseball with the San Francisco Giants for a couple of years before he was released. His baseball journey led to his love for health and fitness because he experienced the joy from helping his host families achieve more happiness through health. This sparked the idea of Burn Boot Camp and since Devan has dedicated his life’s work to helping families all over the world. Today, he is the leader of thousands of amazing people employed by Burn Boot Camp who share the vision of helping women achieve more than they thought possible for themselves and their families.
