Kari Burghardt is a graduate of the Institute for Integrative Nutrition. Most recently, Burghardt has become a Life Equals Ambassador and is now pursuing her dream job in nutrition through her health and wellness blog, Shine Within Nutrition. She describes herself as a “total food geek who loves to eat healthy and live a fit life!” As a busy mother of two, Burghardt has never had a single gym membership. Instead, she prefers to do quick workouts at home anytime she can squeeze them. She has been a Tone It Up member since 2010 and is a Brand Ambassador for Fit Mom Diet. Most recently, Burghardt became a contributor to East Valley Moms Blog where she creates health and fitness related blog posts. Burghardt finds her motivation to live a healthy life through her ‘little rascals,’ as she believes parents should be their children’s #1 role models. “Monkey see, monkey do!” Burghardt challenges parents to set a good example and says children will then follow. Looking ahead, Burghardt plans to continue to maintain her blog where she happily provides healthy, inspiring recipes, fun ways to keep your kids active and quick, simple workouts you can do at home. Whether you’re a parent or not, Burghardt has irreplaceable health tips that can be found at shinewithinnutrition.com, Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest and Instagram.
