“I got into great condition several years ago working out at KM Fitness then life got in the way... career changes, going back to school for my degree and family obligations. I let my busyness get the best of me and before you know it, I stopped exercising and eating healthy. I was eating out too much and randomly snacking without too much thought of sitting down for a proper meal. Before you know it, the weight creeped up and I was heavier than I have ever been. I knew that Mike and Susan could help me, as they have in the past... They are a great team. They really take an interest in their clients, and their new Eat Clean and Get Lean nutrition program worked wonders for my busy schedule. As I lost some weight and continued my personal treaining with them I had more energy to continue to work, take care of my family and attend night school to complete my degree in education. In just a short period of time, I lost 12 pounds but also 3.5 inches from my waist! I really love their approach to transformation... they always stress fat loss over weight loss and the importance of getting back on tracke when your busy life wants to ge the best of you!
“Just wanted everyone to know that both Mike and Susan helped me thru 2 knee surgeries and totally got me going again. They are helpful, kind and smart people. I joined Susan’s 4 Week Fat Flush program several months ago. It changed my life and also my relationship with food. I have been on so many diets over the years, it seemed no matter how many different programs or exercises I tried the weight would not come off. I chalked it all up to menopause and my age and to a certain degree I was right. What I did not realize and what Susan’s education program does is that it addresses my changing hormones and nutrition together. I was still trying to diet like a 20 year old and use the “eat less exercise more” approach that worked for me in the past. When I followed Susan’s nutrition program I realized I was not eating enough protein and of course was making up for the low calories and hunger with overeating starchy carbs (like “whole grains” and “healthy cereals”) and dairies (in the form of yogurts). I did not realize that my shift in my hormones made me more reactive to starch, sugar and stress. Once I started the program, I realized I was starving myself. I was now eating more foods that kept me fuller longer. I started to lose weight for the first time in 10 years! I was so happy and my body reacted so well to all the nutritious foods I started to feel better immediately and resolved some long term stomach issues (gas, bloating and pain). I also lost 28 lbs! I was shocked with the progress and know that this is a way of life for me. Friends and family who have not seen me in a long time comment on how great I look. I am so happy to look and feel my best. At 63 I never thought I would enjoy buying new clothes 2 sizes smaller and feel that I am still making progress but will not be too extreme at the sake of my health. I recommend Mike and Susan Keenan at KM Fitness to all my friends and business associates... it is the best gift you can give to yourself. They are AWESOME!”
“I'm happy today! I have lost 20 lbs since I started my nutrition program as prescribed by KM Fitness. I lost 5 inches in my waist and 4% body fat. Even more importantly my high blood pressure has returned to very normal numbers WITHOUT the use of any medication. I had knee and shoulder injuries that were so painful I was not able to exercise or perform my normal routine and I was contemplating knee replacement surgery. Today I am pain free (I also increased my bench press to to 60 lbs!). I worked the plan for about five weeks starting in June. Then I went on to add things in...like fruit and some dairy and ice cream which I love. I stopped losing but maintained the loss I had. I needed to lose more, so after 6 weeks I decided to go back to the original cleanse program and within two days I had lost another pound. So I kind of know now how far I can push the envelop without regaining weight, but more importantly I have a wonderful tool that I can use when I need to regain control of my weight. My goal is to lose 20 more pounds. I have made some permanent adjustments to my diet. I know I cannot eat anything made with wheat. I have switched from coffee to green tea. I eat alot more protein than I used to. I continue to eat lots of veggies which I always did. I am actually eating more on this regimen than I did before and I now know the difference between being hungry and having cravings --mostly for sugar. I feel confident that those cravings will disappear as my body gets used to living without sugar. I will be 76 in a few weeks and I would really like to give myself the gift of a healthy weight. I would like to thank Mike & Susan Keenan from KM Fitness for introducing this nutrition program and coaching me along my fat loss journey!”
“I was a client of Mike and Susan’s in 2008 and got in to the best shape of my life. As the years went on I became distracted by the job, finding it harder to squeeze in my workouts during hectic long weeks of overtime at work. As a lineman for an electrical company, Superstorm Sandy had me working 16 hour days, with little time found for eating healthy meals. It was eat on the run most of the time. Following an injury, I had shoulder surgery, followed by a 7 month recovery and rehabilitation period. With my poor eating habits and sedentary lifestyle taking over, my weight started to creep back up and the chronic inflammation really kept me from wanting to move forward. I was depressed. I decided to go back to what I consider the A-Team of fitness and nutrition, Mike and Susan Keenan, owners of KM Fitness, Manasquan, NJ. Mike and Susan were able to address all of my current issues. Mike’s speciality is metabolic training, he showed me the fastest, smartest way to get into condition with my limited time. Susan taught me that nutrition was 90% of my success, and I learned how fat loss is more important than weight loss and she was able to get my Hunger/ Energy / Cravings (HEC) under control. In 10 short weeks I lost 32 pounds and 9% bodyfat! I am alert, focused and have more energy for my physically demanding job, and I am sleeping better and keeping up with my energetic teenagers. Susan has taught me that living the fat loss lifestyle is something that we can do on an ongoing basis and it is fine to occasionally have a reward meal during my busy week of eating clean and exercising. Thanks to Mike and Susan for giving me that 2nd chance to do it permanently!”
“I was at a point where I was in good health and considered myself in decent shape however I was not satisfied. I knew I had never exercised (no pun intended) the willpower to reach what I felt was my personal potential. Good health yes, "lean and mean", not yet. It was a coincidence when I contacted Mike and Susan that they were beginning a 5 week program to "train" a group on smarter ways to exercise and healthy eating. It was consistent with my goals. Here was my opportunity to focus on training and to acquire knowledge that made real sense on how to synchronize your exercise and eating habits... and in a way that sounded so logical. Knowing myself, I knew that once I made an appointment I would keep it. I also knew that eating properly was even more important to a successful program than even the physical exercise. I had a decision to make. I could take advantage of the extensive research that Mike and Sue had made in both physical training and how to eat smart so as to see the best results or continue my same old routine. It was a no-brainer! The weeks flew by. I kept those appointments and to my pleasant surprise, I actually discovered that the diet was to my liking. Being someone who love food that turned out to be a real plus.My conclusion: Put yourself into the hands of this duo and you will be setting a pattern for yourself that really works. Most who are successful in any venture typically have a mentor or coach. Mike and Susan have helped me to be a winner and have shown keen personal interest in helping me be consistent moving forward. I took the first step and am not looking back!”
“I just put away my 12’s, my 10’s and most of my 8’s thanks to Susan. For the past two years I have been working hard trying to lose the 30 pounds I put on since my 43rd birthday. In April, I had lost most of it, but was stuck with more to lose to really fit in my clothes and feel comfortable. Since working with Susan, I have dropped 7 lbs. since April, but more importantly, i went from 25% body fat down to 20.3% body fat and the fittest I’ve been in 16 years. The best part is that the nutrition plan feels like a new way of living for me, definitely not a diet. I feel like I can continue on without a problem. I’ve established the habits I need to maintain this weight and to keep improving. I don’t feel hungry all the time, and when I am hungry, I eat a lot of good food that is fueling my workouts and keeping my energy up. My HEC is in check, as Susan likes to say. If you want to feel at least 10 years younger, and look it, give Susan a call. You can thank me later.

Working out with Mike and Sue at the private studios of KM Fitness is such a positive experience! Weight training with Mike is always challenging. He is a great motivator and seeing results keeps me coming back. Sue's knowledge of nutrition is so extensive. It is exciting to work with her as we address issues such as fat loss not weight loss, what to add to my diet to increase energy and stop cravings and how foods help us deal with the stress of everyday living. You will not be disappointed with Mike and Sue on your team!
Mike is the perfect trainer for anyone, young or getting older, that has new or previous injuries. His years as a physical therapist, personal trainer, combined with his knowledge of nutrition, offer a complete package for optimum health. He has helped me improve my golf game by strengthening my upper body. He is sensitive, caring and a positive hands-on professional that I recommend whole heartedly.
The Keenan's are wonderful. I have thoroughly enjoyed my experience in having them work with me to improve my level of fitness and the quality of my approach to nutrition. I look and feel better than I have in years. I highly recommend them.
Mike and I go way back in the medical field and I always appreciated his dedication and commitment to nutrition and fitness. He is an expert at what he does and I highly recommend his services.
Susan and Mike are wonderful to work with. I was able to lose all the weight and keep it off. I'm in the best shape of my life thanks to KM Fitness. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
Mike and Susan Keenan have really put together a professional and educational system when it comes to personal training and fat loss nutrition. Mike is very knowledgeable of how to use the proper mechanics of exercise to get me into the best shape in the fastest time and Susan taught me how proper nutrition in the right combinations was key to losing fat and keeping it off (with an occasional reward meal from time to time!). They are a great team and I highly recommend their expertise to help you reach you fitness goals.
I have been training with Mike and Susan for over 2 years and I am so happy with my workouts and results. I have trained with many personal trainers and their program is just so unique and effective. I am a chiropractor and I have a good knowledge about fitness and posture and I am confident in saying that you are truly in good hands with Mike and Susan when it comes to fitness, nutrition, and so much more. Thank you for all you do for me and my patients and your clients and your community!

That really depends on your goals! Before beginning any program, we offer a complementary consultation. At your consultation, we review your Medical History, discuss your goals, and perform an evaluation, which focuses on Body Composition, Strength, flexibility and aerobic endurance. Based on the results of the evaluation, along with Medical History and established goals, we develop a plan that meets your nutritional, lifestyle and exercise criteria.
The 5 Pillars of health and fitness are Sleep, Hydration, Nutrition, Stress Management and Exercise. They are in the order of most important. You can not function without Sleep, Water and Food, so they come first. Smoking like you are on fire, and drinking like you are trying to put it out is not proper stress management, but that is exactly how some people react to stress! Exercise not only has the ability to improve your weight, and get you stronger, but is also one of the most effective ways to lower physical, mental and spiritual stress, and lower inflammation in the body. We teach the 5 Pillars, because that is the only way to get you your from where you are, to where you want to be.
KM Fitness stands for Keenan Medical Fitness, we look to cater to those who would not thrive in a warehouse style gym, with supervision that is not trained to management those with health issues, or not present at all! We speak your doctors language, any instructions by your physician will be followed, and follow up reports can be sent to the prescribing physician, Therapist or Chiropractor. Chronic illness is usually indicative that there is a deficiency in Sleep, Hydration, Nutrition, Stress Management or Exercise! We know that, and have the applications to move towards optimal health and wellness.
Our ancestors ate a diet rich in free range animal proteins, such as chicken, eggs, bison, deer, fish and basically anything they could catch. Organ meats, such as liver, kidneys, and the fats of the animal were also consumed. Greens were abundent, so they too, along with nuts, seeds and berries were included in their daily diet. Very little root vegetables, fruit and grains were available, so we developed a strong "craving" for them when they could be found. We were a migratory people, that is , up to about 10,000 years ago, when the first farming communities began to spring up around the fertile crescant of the Middle East, India and Africa. It was around this time, that the Modern diseases of Diabetes, Heart Disease, Osteoprosis, Tooth Decay and Cancer were first identified, as per historians and anthropologists. Current diets are reflective of processed sugar, grains and even meats. The nutritional quality of our foods is very poor as comparted to mour ancestors of 50,000 years ago. Poor soil, irrigation, pollution, synthetic fertilizers, GMO seed and long trips on cargo ships make the need for supplementation crucial to our health and wellness.
