We all know how hard it can be to find the energy and motivation to get our bodies moving and develop a healthy lifestyle, and Karls' new initiative #itsGOtime has become an inspiration for so many of us.

Lezlie released a video on Mid-Day Square's Instagram account sharing her "biggest secrets," which led her to talk about certain insecurities she feels towards herself.

The video has been viewed nearly 30,000 times on Instagram and it's motivated many people to join in on this exciting and life-changing journey with this brave Montrealer.

The sensitive topics she discusses in her video are ones that so many of us struggle with and to see someone with so much confidence and success open up about them is nothing short of inspiring. 

The unfiltered and beautiful video is sure to bring out all the feels and if you have yet to see it, it's ready for you to watch just below.

In the video, Karls self-defines as one of the "most confident insecure people." 

Lezlie received a phone call from Val Desjardins (@pumpfitness), one of Montreal's most popular fitness trainers after seeing a story that Karls posted on Instagram.

Karls had previously opened up about having her very first panic attack and Desjardins, who believes mental and physical health go hand in hand, knew that she could help in some way.

This dream team has paired up to help Lezlie reach her goals of finding balance and loving herself as a whole.

This motivating and honest post caught the attention of the nurses at the JGH, who have joined in on the #itsGOtime challenge.

They have been climbing flights of stairs daily to help spread Lezlie's message, which was shown in one of her Instagram stories.

And, as you can see from the comments, her video touched the hearts of many.
