Hi, my name is Katie Garrison! I have a passion for fitness and helping others reach their fitness goals!
Fitness is all about building a lifestyle of good habits one choice at a time and as a personal trainer, its my goal to help you create a healthier you every session!
“Fitness” to me is a lifestyle that constantly drives you to be healthier. That involves a lifestyle of healthy eating, regular exercise, consistent sleep patterns, good mental habits, etc.
“Fit” isn’t some lofty perfection that’s unattainable, but it’s every day. Making small changes over time that lead to a healthier you. Whatever you can do right now to improve your health that can increase your overall quality of life across your lifespan. That is my lifelong “fitness” goal.
Growing up as a figure skating athlete, I never had to work out in the gym. So, after sports I went to college, went to the gym for the first time, tried working out & felt totally lost and insecure.
Over the years I had to overcome a huge learning curve and gradually rebuild my identity as an athlete. If you feel like I did, I want to help you go from insecure to confident in the gym, lost to identifying as an athlete again, and equip you to reach your athletic potential!
I’m a DEKA coach and athlete. I’ve been an ACSM Certified Personal Trainer since 2018. I’m a Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology, certified in various group ex formats, and before all of that I trained figure skating athletes as a USFSA coach and choreographer.
On the fun side! I’m a dog mom & a lover of all kinds of outdoor activities, board games, and fantasy adventure books!
