    As a young girl, I knew of two women who openly discussed child sexual abuse: Oprah Winfrey and Maya Angleou. Each shared their stories with strength and resilience.

    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. ...

    "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 F., San Mateo

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 D. Palo Alto


    "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 Tejo, Burlingame


    "I started doing boot camps with Katie 2-3 times a week nine months ago. They have become the highlights of my week. Her exercises are variable and fast-paced so they’re always challenging and never boring, and each time I walk away feeling accomplished and stronger than the session before. She has added some much-needed motivation and excitement to my previously dull workout routine and I can’t recommend her bootcamps highly enough!"

    Lindsay S., San Francisco


    "Katie has been such an inspiration to me. She has helped me achieve many of my athletic goals. I have always wanted to run a half marathon and Katie helped me every step of the way. I highly recommend Katie to people of all physical levels – she is amazing!"

    Phuong P., San Mateo


    "Workouts with Katie are the best workouts I get each week. Katie is a great motivator, always brings discipline and positive energy. I feel so much better after each session."

    Ahmad A., San Mateo


    “Boot Camp with Katie is a work out I look forward to every week! Katie does an amazing job providing personalized attention even in group settings, and her variety of exercises keeps me challenged. I often engage muscles I rarely use otherwise, and I always feel sore (in the best way) the next day.”

    Rishi S. , San Francisco, CA


    "Workouts with Katie are intense, efficient and motivating! She knows exactly what moves to teach you to target the areas you want to work on. After six weeks of training with Katie, I fit better in my clothes, have definition in my arms and am stronger in my core. We work hard, have fun and I look forward to training with Katie at the end of the work day!"

    Leah M., Palo Alto


    "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!"

    Carolyn S., Los Altos


    "I am constantly challenged by Katie and she inspires me to reach new goals. I am impressed by her passion to change the lives of others through her own experience and knowledge."
