About Kat

"I am an ACE-Certified Group Fitness instructor who has been teaching classes for over a decade. I am a wife, mother of three, and joy-filled Jesus Follower. Fitness is a huge part of my life.  Some of my favorite ways to be active are running, hiking, and, of course, dance-fitness!  I love spreading JOY to others and find that teaching fitness classes is a great way to do this. The idea to open the LIVE. MOVE. BE. Fitness Studio came as a result of wanting to create a positive and uplifting fitness environment-- a space of belonging and encouragement for every person regardless of age, size, or fitness level. I had a desire to connect with my students on a deeper level beyond just leading them through a fitness class.  I would love to be a part of your fitness journey!  Find my classes on the LMB schedule or book a Pop-Up class with me."
