There is an athlete in everyone, and discovering this inner strength in a physical way can transcend all aspects of your life.  My work is not just about losing weight or getting stronger; it is about becoming empowered.  I work hard to make my clients work hard.  I have been helping others tap into their own wellness and strength potential in the heart of Chicago since 2006.  My sole objective is to cultivate the program and environment where my clients can grow strong, healthy, powerful, and confident.  
I first picked up a kettlebell in 2006.  I had the privelege of working with very skilled trainers who helped me paint my own training philosophy.  I loved the way the kettlebell workouts made me feel--challenged, powerful, connected.  You cannot just do.  You have to learn; think; practice; then, accurately execute.  I liked that it was hard...if it is too easy, it doesn't feel worth my time.  I never want to"go through the motions" of exercise, either.  I train my clients as I train myself, with purpose.  
I began training for figure competitions in 2008 and put off my goal to become RKC certified for several years as I climbed the national ranks.  In 2012, after my last competitive season, I rediscovered my passion in kettlebell training and have certified both Level I and II of the RKC.  I integrate kettlebells into all of my training and teach several classes each week to spread the benefit of this training system.   The more I work with my clients and fellow trainers, I see major changes in strength, physique, mobility, and overall body awareness.  It has been a pretty cool journey, and I hope to share it with many more!

10/10 I rearranged my schedule just to train with Katie
By Janell Elise Arroyo / Chicago, USA

Love her progressions and her explanations. She has awesome step by step programs.
I left sweaty and sore. I want to train with her so badly, I have to rearrange my schedule. Can't wait till my next lesson!

10/10 An amazing trainer with a real passion to help!
By Lawrence Dunning / Chicago, USA

After being recommended to Katie by another personal trainer friend of mine I can attest that she is at the top of her field.
As a competing professional athlete and martial artist my training time is vital and I need to maximise quality over quantity. Starting working with Katie early this year has led to the most successful competitive year of my career. She is so knowledgeable and also infectiously passionate about her craft. I have learned so much and will continue to learn and be inspired from her in the future. Katie is highly recommended to all!

10/10 she is fantatic!!
By Navin H / Washington DC, USA

I loved training with Katie.
She knows what she is talking about.

Thank you

from Washington DC
