Today is the day that you TRANSFORM, from the inside, out! Robin is joined by Heidi Powell, renowned Transformation Specialist from "Extreme Weight Loss," and Jennifer McKee, who lost 138 pounds in less than ONE YEAR (naturally)! The ladies discuss the process of fully reinventing yourself, and why weight loss and transformation are NOT the same thing. You'll LOVE hearing about Jennifer's journey to drop weight despite a life-altering foot issue standing in her way. She reflects on how her first step was learning to love herself and describes the chain effects that happened from there. Heidi shares some absolutely critical information about where to start, how to start, and how to hold yourself accountable. She describes her "perfectly imperfect" method that takes the pressure OFF of ourselves for once (you'll be floored to hear that sometimes Heidi only works out for 5 minutes!). Stay until the end for a fun "word transformation" competition game. If you're looking for a sign that it's time to transform yourself, this is it!

In addition to the app, the TRANSFORM brand has expanded immensely with the introduction of its own supplement line, including the line of EVERYDAY meal replacement shakes, energy formulas, and vitamins, and the PERFORM line of workout and performance products. Taking it a step further, TRANSFORM also launched a one-on-one coaching program where app users are paired with a certified personal coach who has a history of successful transformations and works side by side with Chris and Heidi.

Jennifer McKee: 

Jennifer McKee is a Certified Health Coach and Transformation Specialist who lost over 50% of her body weight naturally without surgery or quick fixes. She struggled with yo-yo dieting and emotional/binge eating for almost 30 years. She was able to lose weight despite not being able to exercise much at the first part of her journey due to severe plantar fasciitis and tarsal tunnel syndrome. This foot condition 

Jennifer’s journey inspired her to create a health coaching business, McKee Health Transformations (, in August 2016 to help others transform their lives. 


In addition to being a Certified Health Coach, Jennifer also completed the Coaches Workshop with Chris and Heidi Powell in 2017 and was a Transformation Specialist Coach for Chris and Heidi Powell’s Transform Coaching program from 2018-2019.

Her dad has lost 168 lbs and improved his blood pressure so much that he was taken off blood pressure medication that he was on for 25 years. Her mother has lost 75 lbs and improved her blood sugar numbers so that she is no longer a type 2 diabetic.
