About Kathleen

Many years ago, I decided to risk everything and change my career entirely to follow a simple dream I’ve always had. I decided to go back to school to study everything there was to know about the one true love of mine, fitness. I earned my diploma as a Personal Fitness Instructor and Nutrition Counselor, as well as a variety of specific certifications.

One of the certifications I hold closest to me is the Older Adult Specialist Certification. I’ve always enjoyed working with all ages and fitness levels. I was approached by many adults seeking a program that met their needs, without having to go to a “big box” gym where they felt “intimidated and overwhelmed”. I believe that exercise should be available to any person and it saddened me that a program was not available in our community to satisfy this age group. This led me to design and develop my first unique fitness program called Fit and 55+. The program caters to anyone 55 years young and higher; you can read more about this under my programs section.

From a personal perspective, the form of exercise I enjoy the most is High-Intensity Interval Training. This is what prompted me to create the FIT HIIT program, and stems from working as a head coach leading groups of more than 20 at a time through high-intensity classes. I take pride in delivering very energetic and highly motivating sessions while still understanding the demands that everyday living can have on a person. With two young cherished boys of my own, I know the time commitment and energy required to raise a family! By keeping sessions shorter in duration and introducing a variety of equipment to enhance the exercises, you can look forward to being in and out quickly.


Smovey Certified Coach

Swing, Move and Smile with the Smovey Vibroswing-System! Try this beginner-moderate workout for weight loss that includes core stabilization, hand reflexology, and deep relaxation! This light-weight piece of equipment is a spiralled tube with 4 steel balls that provides the benefits of TCM as it stimulates the reflex zones on the inside of the palm through subtle vibrations.

Its positive energy-inducing effect can help reduces the effects of repetitive stress and neurological disorders such as Parkinson’s, MS, and more. Specific balance exercises refine daily movement patterns to prevent falls and injury. Popular for over a decade, the Smovey can be used seated, walking or in the pool!
