Kate is an AFFA certified group fitness instructor and holds specialty certifications in Warrior Rhythm, Piyo, Turbo Kick, Spiked and SoulFusion. She has been on her own health journey since her early twenties and has sustained a 60lb weight loss. She found her love of fitness through music-based formats and feels a strong connection and unique energy while moving to a beat. All formats she teaches are music-driven and she BLASTS the music LOUD in class for an amazing music & sound experience virtually!
She saw the potential and possibility to help more people find a love for fitness through virtual teaching in 2019. She loves technology and figuring out creative ways to use it for live streaming fitness. Kate believes fitness should be fun, enjoyable and more than just a physical experience. She wants her participants to rock out to the music “When in doubt, dance it out!” She encourages people to embrace the process of learning how to move to a beat.

She holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education and a Master’s Degree in Organizational/Educational Leadership. She has found her teaching passion reignited in new ways with virtual fitness instruction and coaching. She now manages a virtual gym with three other instructors.
