About Karen

Karen Shopoff Rooff is a Women’s Wellness Warrior who champions realistic approaches to living a fit and healthy life. After earning certifications as a personal trainer & perinatal fitness specialist, Karen launched Balance Personal Fitness Training in 2008. In addition to in-person fitness, wellness, and health coaching, Karen facilitates self-directed ecourses and virtual bootcamps for clients worldwide. Her blog Running on Balance is known for excellent content regarding women’s health, particularly as related to the childbearing year and perimenopause. In her free time, Karen loves to travel to new places to run marathons and ultramarathons. But because she believes in balance, Karen is also an avid reader and backfloater (though not at the same time).
