We wear so many hats — and we are better partners, mothers, employees, friends, daughters, siblings, volunteers when we feel like our best selves. While there are a lot of life circumstances that are tough to change (our jobs, kids’ activity schedules, household responsibilities), there are still ways to fit in small blocks of time to care for ourselves.

I truly believe that if moms don’t care for themselves first, they cannot care for anyone else.

I’m Katie, group fitness instructor, personal trainer, and soon-to-be nutrition coach. But most importantly, I’m a mom.

hey there!

Think about when you feel GOOD – rested, strong, fueled. You have more patience, more energy, better sleep, a positive outlook.  Maybe it’s been too long since you felt like that. Let me tell you: No matter what you have on your plate, that feeling is possible — and we can get there together.

It is such a unique stage of life and one that may not always get enough attention and support. And let’s be honest, I’m in that “pseudo Uber-driver, homework monitor, social-emotional therapist, activity planner, tablet monitoring and I’m-40-and-my-body-doesn’t-always-move- like-used-to” phase of life myself! 

I have to plan my time differently and what worked in the past doesn’t always work now. And I want to be there for the moms who are going through the same things.

Becoming a mom changed everything and it continues to change as my kids get older.
