Welcome to CurvyGoddessWorkout.com, a weight loss and fitness website specifically for plus size women. I’m really excited to have you here.

My name is Diane Williams. I’m a plus size personal trainer and coach living in NYC and I am on a mission. I am committed to help, guide, and support plus size women, like you, lose weight, get fit while being healthy. I know that when you gradually transform your body, your confidence will boost. You won’t believe your eyes and how you’re going to feel. 

Because not only did I struggle with weight loss, fitness, and body image, but I saw other women my size struggle, even when they hired personal trainers who they thought were qualified to help them. But instead, they layered on more trauma for women who had negative experiences with exercise, fitness, and weight loss. 

P.E. when I was in grade school terrorized me, climbing THE ROPE. Just thinking about it sends me back to being the fearful kid who had too much anxiety on her hands, just waiting for that day where she’d have to attempt to climb the rope. 

So, I decided to create Curvy Goddess Workout to not only share my story but help other plus size women on their weight loss and fitness journey. 

I’ll be sharing all of what I’ve learned as a plus size personal trainer and coach of over 23 years in the fitness industry working with thousands of plus size women. 

I cannot wait! 

So What’s This Plus Size Personal Trainer and Coach’s Story?

Chubby Cheeked Diane at 10 years old

I’ve been overweight all my life. My mom would tell me I had rolls on my big baby body. She couldn’t even see my neck because it was covered in fat. 

And I grew up to be a very big girl and was very aware that something was wrong with me. 

Why was I this fat? 

I just wanted to be normal size like the other kids. 

At 15, I went on my first diet. It was low carb and bland, but I stuck to it and lost 40 lbs. But I didn’t know how to keep it off, so I gained all of it back, and then some. 

That first diet sent me down the weight loss rabbit hole. I lost, then gained, then lost, then gained until I went to NYC and modeled as a plus size model. 

I still wasn’t pleased with my body. 

So, my fiancé at the time hired a personal trainer. Now the magic happened. My entire body changed, plus my inner self changed. 

I was more confident and I felt more energetic. I had no idea that training and healthy eating could do that to a person. 

The inner change was so profound that I wanted to do that for others. 

I learned that losing weight and getting in shape was so much more than a physical transformation. It was more than having defined abs and a perky butt. 

It’s about the inner change that’s happening while you’re on your journey. 

It’s about taking care of yourself, inside and out, and being the best version of yourself that you can be. 

So What’s the Mission of Diane, Plus Size Personal Trainer and Coach for Plus Size Women?

The change was so profound that it was my mission to empower other women to help, guide, and support them on their weight loss and fitness journeys as a plus size personal trainer. 

I can understand how scary and uncertain it might feel to start your fitness and weight loss journey, but you can rest assured that I will be there to help you through each step. Let me help you get through this sometimes confusing journey.

So, whether you’re just starting out on your weight loss and fitness journey or you’ve been at it for a while, I want you to know that you’re not alone. I’m here to help you every step of the way, and together, we’ll achieve greatness!

I’ve been a certified personal trainer for over 23 years now. When I started I had trained all types of clients; men, women, kids, athletes, non-athletes, housewives, CEOs. But after 10 years I decided to focus on plus size women because there was true ignorance in how to train these clients. 

But I had a knack for knowing how to train plus size women compared to my colleagues. Boy, my colleagues were a mess! And many didn’t even know it. 

I mean their clients who were plus size would have to run on the treadmill for a warm up! Or loading their back with a 40 lbs bar PLUS 45 lb disks on each side of the bar before their client learned how to do a proper squat with just bodyweight.

I want my clients to focus on long-term health and fitness goals, on a path to learning to love their bodies. Weight loss will be the by-product from these healthy and consistent daily fitness decisions.

It’s not about being extreme with the body that a lot of us see on reality television shows for weight loss; diet deprivation and excessive, hyper-intense workout. Most likely this combination will lead to injuries, a superb formula for failure.

Does Diane, Plus Size Personal Trainer and Coach Have Any Experience?

So not only do I have 23 years of experience as a personal trainer in NYC which is a very competitive market, I also have had a personal battle with my weight ever since I was a child. I’ve tried every fad diet and exercise program out there, and I’ve learned a thing or two about what works and what doesn’t.

So I have real-life experience, personally and professionally, plus a genuine passion for helping others. And that’s what I bring to the table. I’m here because I truly believe that every plus size woman, regardless of her size or shape, deserves to feel confident, healthy, and beautiful.

When it comes to weight loss and fitness, there are a lot of misconceptions and stereotypes out there – especially when it comes to plus size women. I’m not here for any of that nonsense.

So What Are Diane, the Plus Size Personal Trainer’s Values?

My values when it comes to weight loss and fitness are simple: inclusivity, positivity, and self-love. I believe that every woman, regardless of her size or shape, deserves to feel confident in her own skin. I’m not here to shame anyone or make anyone feel bad about themselves. I’m here to lift you up, to support you, and to help you be the best version of yourself.

I’m a firm believer that weight loss and fitness should be about health and happiness, not about fitting into some arbitrary beauty standard. So, whether you’re a size 14 or a size 28, I’m here for you. I’m here to celebrate your victories, to offer a helping hand when you stumble, and to remind you that you are beautiful and worthy, just as you are.

So, if you’re ready to embark on this journey with me, know that you’re entering a community that values diversity, kindness, and self-love above all else.
