I’m Kat, Certified Fitness Trainer from the sexiest city in the world, Miami! I grew up as a dancer, having taken ballet, modern, and jazz classes for over 10 years. Among those years, I also competed nationally with my cheerleading squad and participated in my school’s track and swimming teams. In my late adolescent years, I learned that I have a musculoskeletal disorder, after noticing some pain and stiffness in my joints. This discovery peaked my interest in human anatomy and physiology and I went on to study Health Sciences at Florida International University. At the beginning of my college years, I went through a major lifestyle transition leaving sports behind. It didn’t take long until I started gaining fat, losing muscle and worst of all, losing energy. I made the decision to turn my lifestyle back around and enrolled myself in a gym. Given my condition, I became limited to the amount of physical stress my body could endure at a time, as compared to what it once could for sports. Nevertheless, exercise was a must for alleviating the pain I was experiencing. I was able to participate in one hour group fitness classes offered by the gym, as compared to the 3+ hours of sports practice and conditioning from my earlier years. I experimented with different class formats (from boxing to pilates) and developed friendships with fellow members and staff. Not only did my body start to lean out, I was improving my strength, body alignment, and range of motion which I lost from being inactive for all those years. With a little bit of a confidence boost from my fitness friends, I started training to become a group fitness instructor. Before I knew it, I was teaching group fitness classes and studying for my personal trainer certification which leads me to where I am today. Now I can say that I love what I do! I hope to continue to motivate others towards creating the best version of themselves, as I do the same for myself!
Be fit, live well,
