OWNER + HEAD COACH
USAW COACH LEVEL 1
CERTIFIED PERSONAL TRAINER
Hello! My name is Kat, your Head Coach and this is my story. My life has been an incredible journey but if there is anything that is concrete is that I can truly say fitness is my passion.
It all started in 2012 when I entered a Tough Mudder Race; a 12.5-mile race with 25 of the most challenging obstacles I have ever came across and I loved every minute! Later in 2013, I was introduced to CrossFit. I started training in a garage with a group of friends that cared. We held one another accountable and we grew together. Despite that Functional Fitness was new to me it came naturally. I immediately fell in love.
In 2015, I was in search of a gym with CrossFit that would hold me accountable for any excuses that I could try to fabricate that would limit my progression as an athlete. To find this was incredibly hard but it wasn’t impossible. I found a great place that came along with a new family.
A few years of hard work and I was offered an Assistant Coach Position. I trained under a fantastic coach that helped me acquired technique, proper movement and tips on training beginners; this was truly a turning point in my fitness journey.
During this time I trained intensively, entering into more than a dozen competitions. My love for the sport and to fitness continued to expand.
In 2018, I decided to take a different route. I met a coach who would prepare me for an NPC bikini competition: strength training, meal prepping, walking onto stage confidently. I noticed a drastic change in my physical appearance thanks to my new profound knowledge in nutrition. However, my love for Functional Fitness was too strong, with my coach’s permission, I did both! The combination of the two changed me completely. I was faster and stronger than ever before and all that work finally paid off. During the NPC bikini competition in West Palm Beach, I was awarded first place in my category and I am convinced that the combination of training made that possible.
The power in Functional Fitness and proper nutrition is undeniable; it changed my life and it has inspired me to reach others. Feeling confident, building strength, looking your best is empowering and it would be my honor to make that possible. Is my passion and my pleasure in sharing these building blocks through Aurora Fitness & Nutrition.
