From Wheelchair to Weightlifting Podium with Kim Rahir

147 – From Wheelchair to Weightlifting Podium with Kim Rahir

Kim Rahir is a 60-year-old mother of three who was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis (MS) 10 years ago. She decided to ignore her then doctor’s advice… muscle her way back to a happy life…  and in 2023, become the European Champion in Masters Weightlifting in her age and weight category.

Her journey inspired her to leave her career in journalism in her 50s and become a health coach for middle aged women – with a big focus on reactivating and rebuilding muscle.

Today, Kim helps women tap into an abundant source of vitality by reactivating and maintaining their muscles, while ditching diet culture conditioning to actually eat to nourish and flourish.

  • Being resilient during difficult times
  • About her situation with MS (multiple sclerosis)
