Growing up I was always some sort of athlete and therefore appreciated feeling athletic and strong. It was in college that I totally fell in love with weight training. I felt most confident and most empowered in the gym, working towards strength goals. Weight training taught me how to push past my biggest insecurities as a 6 ft tall woman. It taught me about self acceptance. Weight training taught me how to love myself. I knew I wanted to help other women feel this way, so I decided I wanted to make this a full-time career. I graduated from the University of Florida with a BS in Applied Physiology & Kinesiology. Immediately after graduation, I moved to Miami to be a full-time personal trainer at a gym called Equinox. About a year later, I launched the Train With Katie #TWK program with just an idea and a dream. Team #TWK has grown over the past few years into something beautiful. I’m teaching women to value their strength and feel proud of their bodies more for what they can do vs what they look like. Their physique improvements are byproducts of falling in love with the #TWK process.
Team #TWK is more than just a training program; we are a team. I am coaching some of the most hard-working, uplifting, inspiring women from all walks of life via the internet. As their coach, it’s very rewarding.
