    "Katie is seriously fantastic! She is an amazing trainer and fitness professional who is dedicated to always providing the best to her clients. I have been around quite a few personal trainers over the years, in preparation for marathons and triathlons. It is not easy to find someone like Katie who is so knowledgeable, motivating and passionate. Her positivity and ability to help others is evident from the moment you meet her. I have such respect for her approach. I love her instruction and clarity around what the posture is supposed to look and feel like. I am beyond grateful that I found Katie as soon as I moved to the Bay Area."

    Denise, San Mateo, CA


    "Katie is a marvelous trainer. As a wellness professional, she is knowledgeable, focused and attentive. She is also an exceptionally talented, gifted, upbeat, and inspiring soul. The combination is dynamite. She has a way of building both body and spirit. Under her guidance, you will get a great workout every time and you will look forward to the next one, I promise!"

    Mary, Palo Alto, CA


    "Katie is an extremely talented trainer of many different aspects. Her knowledge of the body and what makes our athletes successful is extremely vast and communicated very well. Our catchers are extremely lucky to have the opportunity to work with her."
    Brett Thomas, The Catching Academy

    "Katie is everything you'd hope for when looking for a fitness professional. Her holistic approach to helping people separates her from the field as she is able to understand how the mind is working with or against the body. Because of her genuine purpose she is able to build trust with members and clients, which drives extremely positive results. Katie embodies what a fitness professional should be and understands the responsibility that comes with serving those who trust her with their health and well being."

    Dario, Burlingame, CA



    "Over the past 18 months Katie has coached me through nearly 150 workouts. At the beginning my strength was so poor it was only because of Katie's encouragement and positive attitude that I continued at all! For me, Katie's style of thoughtful, careful, knowledgeable instruction challenges the body and refreshes the soul. Her reminders to "listen to your body" were indispensable to staying injury free while building strength and confidence. Over time and with her steadfast guidance, I absolutely built a new me (weight, shape, strength, balance, flexibility, stamina, overall health) that has changed every aspect of my life for the better. Her methods are pure magic and I cannot thank her enough!"

    When I was 17, I became really ill. A handful of specialists left my hospital bed scratching their heads. They could not explain why my body began to betray itself when it did or why my liver and spleen took the greatest impact. “We have no explanation for this.” “If you continue to vomit...

    Have you ever been so absorbed in an activity or a conversation that hours felt like minutes? That's flow. Flow can be thought of as the state that emerges when completely mindful and present. People often refer to it as being "in the zone." As a writer and new podcast host, I find myself in...

    Watch a child play outdoors and you’ll see them jump, run and climb. They’re not worried about elevating their heart rate or how many calories they’re burning. Instead, they’re in the moment, relishing in play and finding joy in the simplicity of a swing, flower or a puddle to splash. As a...

    Every week I pick up fresh produce and sunflowers from the local farmer's market. I hand pick five or six strong flowers to bring home. I look for the flowers with strong stems and vibrant heads facing up. My bouquet feels like sunshine in my hands to enjoy all week long. And in a way, it is. ...

    Resilience is defined as the capacity to recover quickly from difficulties; toughness. In strength training, when you cause the muscles to contract against an external resistance you increase the expectation of strength, tone and resilience in the muscles targeted.
