Hello there! I'm on a heartfelt mission to equip you with the keys to a life unburdened by limitations. Through engaging, secure, and purpose-driven training, my aim is to enhance your overall health and well-being. Whether we connect in private, semi-private, or group sessions, either in person or virtually, rest assured, it's all grounded in proven scientific methods that promise results you can feel.
With a wealth of experience, I've crafted a unique approach, lovingly dubbed "unconsTRAINed". It's a blend of virtual and in-person TRX group fitness, small group bootcamp, and personalized training sessions. My expertise centers around fortifying core strength, building endurance, and perfecting those essential functional movements. I have a special focus on training women and those who may have lost their mojo and are eager to rekindle their passion for fitness. I understand the unique needs and challenges that can arise in this journey, and I'm here to support you every step of the way.
Engaging in regular exercise offers women two incredible benefits. Firstly, it promotes physical and mental well-being, helping to manage stress and boost mood. Secondly, it strengthens bones and muscles, which is especially crucial for maintaining overall health and preventing common issues like osteoporosis.
With over three decades in education, I've come to deeply appreciate the power of continuous learning. This fuels my passion for attending fitness conferences, diving into webinars, and pursuing certification programs. It's all about delving into the intricacies of movement across diverse groups. My promise to you is workouts steeped in solid research, but also delivered with a touch of joy and purpose. Drawing on my educational background, I create workouts that are as unique as you are. Together, we'll embark on a journey to bolster your strength and nurture growth, both physically and emotionally. All this while keeping your dreams and needs front and center.
Let's make it happen together!

My favorite client story
A client told me how she realized that a particular movement helped her to pick her grzndbaby up from the floor without injuring herself. She smiled for days. Funniest, was when a client told me that someone "finally" told her she had a nice butt.
My second favorite story came from a client who could barely do one bicycle crunch, shoulder tap or mountain climber (etc). While doing a Metcon (metabolic conditioning) workout, she said, " I only need to do 70 plank shoulder taps. I can do more if you want." And, truth is, she meant it, and could! She realized what she said, and yelled out, " Oh my! I am so proud of myself. I just realized how far I've come! Thank you! Thank You!"

I was obsessed with going to the same gym for 25 years. Then the pandemic hit, my gym closed and I started looking for a replacement - then I found Kathy's Zoom workouts. She introduced to these bands called CFX - Core First and got me hooked. She is like an energized battery who is a great model of health. I have never done the same workout twice and she is a stickler on form, easy to understand and is the greatest motivator to help you achieve results beyond. Kathy meets with me early in the mornings, never missing a time, and never missing beat. Now, 15 months later, I am down rocking my new body. She as added weights and other challenging workouts so I never know what I am getting, but it is always amazing. Even though my gym is opened for business now, I am choosing not to return because of Kathy.
Kathy Gendelman is awesome! I'm 61 years old. I worked out with a trainer from 35 to 50. I picked it up again with Kathy 6 weeks ago after 11 years of getting fat and growing weak. I feel like a new person. I'm stronger, more flexible, and I feel alive again. It's all because of Kathy. She develops specific workout routines for the individual. She spends a great deal of time conceiving specific regimens. In my case it's to strengthen core, gain flexibility, and develop stamina. Kathy is awesome. I lucked out and got the best trainer on here.
Kathy is an excellent trainer. She knows how to tailor the sessions to reach your goals. Every session is fun and challenging.
Kathy is Great! Booked sessions for older mom and teenage athlete daughter! Kathy was able to tailor our program to meet both our needs. Super impressed.
Excellent work out. Kathy was extremely knowledgeable, and talked me through a workout that was doable but still challenging. I felt great when I was done and I wasn't too sore the next day.
I started training with Kathy only 3 months ago and have already seen a very noticeable improvement in my appearance. Her training has resulted in my: • Lose of weight and body fat all over. • Increased definition and muscle in my arms, shoulders and back. • Strong legs. • Increase in energy and flexibility. Kathy is super knowledgeable in all aspects of training and her program is a proven winner. I am happy to train with her because she is the best !!!
I loved working out with Kathy! Her experience really helped me understand what I need to do to get in shape. I also love TRX and Kathy is an expert. Now I can use all my home gym equipment.
