It is my mission to give you the tools to create a life that is unconstrained, by improving your health and total well-being through a fun, unconsTRAINed safe form focused training. Whether private, semi-private, or group sessions (in-person or virtually), it is my focus to get you moving better in a way that is scientifically proven to deliver results. My experience, consists of many years of doing a hybrid approach of blending virtual & in-person TRX group fitness, small group bootcamp, and personal training sessions with an emphasis on strength, core, endurance & functional movements. I am currently working side by side with the creators of the COREFIRST, as an Ambassador and Coach Leader. I am partnered with Athleta , as well as FitBodies, training coaches and bringing CoreFirst workouts to resorts all over the world. Incorporating the COREFIRST Trainer, along with my other "toys", has been a game changer! Wait until you experience this hands-free tool-REALLY works your CORE!
Having spent over 30 years in education, I realize how important it is to be a continual learner, and as such attend fitness conferences, webinars and participate in certification programs that will better my understanding of movement as it applies to various groups. I am determined to work on individual goals, providing movements that are researched based while executing them in a fun and purposeful program design. I incorporate my educational background to create unique and challenging workouts geared towards you! Together, we will challenge each other to become strong, and to grow both physically and emotionally. Together we will meet YOUR needs and goals! Let's make it happen together! *Have advanced learning and certifications in Active Aging (FAI) & Cancer Exercise Specialist Certification (CETI). Continuously working on certifcations: special populations, stretching, corrective exercises, mindfullness and nutrition.
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!"
My favorite exercise
Monster set. Want to know what that is????
My favorite quote
"Me vs Me." "You vs 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.
