Katie’s love for fitness started soon after the birth of her first child 18 years ago. She packed on the pounds during pregnancy. Soon after, she FOUND herself in the gym. Katie’s husband, Bryan, was stationed in Fort Hood, TX. The couple had one car which Bryan drove to work everyday. Sportsworld Family Fitness was within walking distance of their tiny apartment. Katie would walk there everyday.
It started as a place to get two hours of free childcare but turned out to be the place Katie found her passion. Cardio Kickboxing became an outlet for any stress she felt. It wasn’t long before the instructor of the class asked Katie to substitute for her. Katie was terrified walking in to teach this class but once the music started, her inner Sasha Fierce was unleashed, and her love for teaching others about fitness began. Katie considers herself a connoisseur of health and fitness. She even taught group exercise to soldiers for PT which prompted her to opened her own bootcamp business in 2010.
Wanting to see how far she could take her body, she started bodybuilding. Katie competed successfully in the NPC in national level bodybuilding competitions. Today, Katie is focusing on finding balance with her family and friends, food, fun, and fitness! It is her goal to help her clients achieve the goals they have. Katie offers one on one personal training, group training, monthly meal and workout plans to members of The Shop Gym.
