She believes in taking the approach about teaching people that fitness is a journey not a destination. Taking care of your body from the inside out is a priority to a happy healthy life. Her passion and enthusiasm translates into her Bootcamp and Cycle classes where she takes you to the edge and pushes you past it! Kati continues to better her knowledge as a personal trainer/instructor by attending continue education classes and reaching out into new territory.

Josh is an NSCA and Precision Nutrition certified trainer. I have been a personal trainer for 7 years.
I’ve worked with individuals of all ages and skill levels but I tend to focus on corrective exercise.
In 2015 I was diagnosed with Ulcerative colitis. This disease stole a lot of things from me that I loved. Almost overnight, my mobility, health and social life was taken from me. With lots of research, hard work and dedication, I can proudly say I am no longer a prisoner of this disease. Surviving with this autoimmune disease has filled me with compassion and understanding for anyone who is battling an illness or injury. I want to help others achieve their health and wellness goals no matter how hopeless they may feel.
