KatHello!

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,

Kat

  1. You sound great! I honestly hope to one day be as accomplished in fitness as you are starting with getting personal-training certified. (One day. *fingers crossed*) I’m glad you’re so happy doing what you’re doing, and it just makes me love the fitness profession even more, because it’s full of motivated and motivational people like yourself.

    Pura vida!
