Katie McKinney

HIIT, STRENGTH, POWER

I ran D1 cross country and track in college, but after an injury sidelined me for my last two years, I decided to get my Personal Training certification so I could help others overcome injury and feel their best when working out. As a coach, I love to push you to your limits, but also reminding you that your "limits" may look and feel different day-to-day. That's why my favorite fitness motto is "I control the time, but you control the grind" so YOU decide what you want from the workout that day!
