About Vanessa

Education Leader, Speaker, Entrepreneur, Confidence & Success Coach

Vanessa Raymond’s Mission

Vanessa has the mission to empower entrepreneurs, speakers, leaders and educators by providing them the necessary tools to perform at a high level and help many people.

Vanessa has an extensive background in fitness and currently Vanessa owns Achieve Academy and she is the on sight fitness coordinator for Visa Corporate in Highlands Ranch, CO. Vanessa is certified in a variety of modalities including Pilates, Yoga, Weight training, Functional Body weight training and kettlebell training as well as other educational programs.

After extensively working with post rehab clients, dancers, athletes and performers, Vanessa saw a need for a cardio and strength training workout combination to complete their client’s total fitness needs.  After years of working with kettlebells, she filtered the most beneficial movements and training philosophies to make KFIT USA an educational program that the Fitness Professional can use on any client and/or population of people safely and effectively.  She has since sold this company which is now rebranded and known a “Iron Fire Fit”

Vanessa is also a qualified Massage therapist and Aesthetician. She ran her own mobile salon for 10 years.

She graduated with a degree in performing arts and performed professionally in musical theater and on the corporate circuit for over 20 years. 

As a dancer, singer and actress she gathered invaluable information through the years on how to understand and implement tenacity, confidence, self-image and discipline. Which now makes her an outstanding speaker coach.  Vanessa understands what it takes to be successful on stage and on screen.

As a result of Vanessa’s years of experience in the fitness, performance, beauty and wellness industries, she created her Victory Factor program which helps women improve their Self-confidence and Body Image.  Vanessa is passionate about helping people live their best life through believing in being their best selves!

Now she is also known as a very established sought after speaker coach as well as a confidence and success coach.
