I prefer to focus on the positive that KCM does.

She probably doesn't do well when people tell her not to do something. I get that.
Great analogy! I have to admit, we do eat at Chick-Fil-A. For me, it depends on how good the product is as to whether I purchase it. If it's a tie between two products, then the personal views might sway me at that point.

I'm not a fan of KCM workouts, so am not buying them for that reason. But I have to admit, I really appreciate that Jessica Smith keeps her social media presence focused solely on fitness.

I havenít noticed anything negative with Kelly. I just wish she would break out of the 30 minute mold sometimes and put together a 45 or 50 minute workout. I also wish she would not be afraid to get more advanced as she was tougher and worked at a faster pace in her earlier DVDs.

I care deeply about human rights, politics, and current events, and I feel passionately about some things. KCM likely would be as offended by opinions/views as I am by hers. That's fine, we live in a country where the free expression of ideas is legal and used to be celebrated. Aren't the best solutions usually the result of compromise?

Tolerance and respect are important, regardless of your opinions. KCM--in her statements and behavior--has been be lacking in these traits. Hence my decision not to patronize her business despite enjoying several of her DVDs. That's me--we are all different, and I don't expect anyone to behave similarly or have the same views/opinions.
Agree.

Also agree. And that's all I want to know.

I agree as well and yet almost everyone who has posted on this thread has shared their personal views (or certainly alluded to them) on their political/social stance which is actually doing what everyone is complaining KCM does. This could cause some of us VFers to feel towards other VFers the way many of you feel about KCM. How sad would that be?! It would be fantastic if discussions could just focus on workouts and supporting each other in our fitness quests.

I didn't allude to my political views, I just stated that I thought KCM was making hers very obvious by her actions. I don't care what anyone believes and I don't care what KCM believes. I don't look at people differently because of their views. Some of my good friends have different political views from me and we're still good friends. My point was I don't think an instructor should mix their business with their politics. Just my opinion. I think it's unprofessional. And I agree our discussions should focus on our fintess quests and so should our instructors focus on their fitness business. Just my opinion.

Perfectly stated! Thank you!

I hope there are good premixes...ones that have weights before cardio.

It's great when I don't have to restart the DVD to get that

This thread has me pulling out my KCMs. I love her compound large muscle workouts. Time efficient and they get the work done.
