About Katharina

I have my Personal Trainer Certification from the National Academy of Sports Medicine, and have my Health Coach Certification from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition. I blend physical health from NASM with mental and spiritual health from IIN to provide clients with a balanced approach to overall fitness. I am also specialized in Women's and Senior Fitness. Being physically strong was and always will be a very important part of my life. It is not the only part that will make you happy and reach your goals. Being emotionally strong and balanced is equally important. I believe in taking care of yourself, mind and body. My effort is to love your own body, soul and spirit. I want to make you see the beautiful you. Inside and out! I always have been an avid athletics enthusiast my entire life. In addition to helping my clients achieve their goals, I enjoy rowing, running, cycling, yoga, barbell training, and heart-pounding HIIT workouts.

Has working with Katharina been life changing? Yes. Is she delightful? Certainly. Do I feel stronger, more confident, and more comfortable? Absolutely. I can happily say I am 100% satisfied that I started doing this. I kept hurting myself doing regular life things because I was so sedentary. I felt like I was headed down an unhealthy and uncomfortable path with my physical health that I could never turn back from. With Katharina's help, I am now resourced with knowing how to exercise, how to push myself without promoting injury, how to pace my expectations, and how to make the most out of each workout. I am *SO* thankful for Katharina and for Happy Human Fitness!

Katharina is amazing! She makes our workouts fun and challenging. She motivates and pushes us to go a little further than we think we can without being forceful. She teaches us how to safely push limits without hurting ourselves and knows how to work around existing injury. She’s easy to communicate with and very responsive when questions or schedule conflicts arise. Very importantly, she is fantastic with our kids. They make workouts fun for them as they compete against each other. They both tell me the time flies and they’re already feeling stronger.

My trainer Katharina is THE BOMB! I love working and training with her. She truly understands me and always speaks life into me and has helped me to adapt a mindset of slow and steady fitness progression that is paying off. I feel so strong and I see my body transforming week by week.

It was a perfect match! My trainer's schedule flexibility matches mine, and well as her approach to fitness. I have had training in the past that I would dread/avoid, but I look forward to work-outs now. Haven't missed one since we started. I am so glad I found this service!
