Hi, I’m Kaitlyn! I am a fitness joiner/pusher. I love to try new things, and my friends say I’m pretty good at talking them into going along for the ride. My fitness journey started with Zumba. I was pretty overweight and beginning to get concerned about my health. I also started running, which I would say is still my main fitness outlet. I have done 5ks, 10ks, half marathons, a full marathon (I’ll be back for another someday), and Ragnar Relays (you should absolutely try this if you haven’t!). I love yoga, I have paddled dragon boats, tried a couple indoor triathlons, dabbled in CrossFit (I’m terrified of the barbell), and rollerbladed a half marathon. I have a hidden desire to be a beautiful ballerina. So, here I am, at age 32, attempting to be a beautiful ballerina through teaching Yoga Barre classes! I’m a first-time fitness instructor and my goal for this class is for it to be as accessible as possible (I’d really like my mom to give it a try), but still offer a challenge for every fitness level.
My other loves include good coffee, craft beer, spending time with family and friends, my dog – Clyde, the sun, and being on/near large bodies of water. I am a dog person, but I must admit my boyfriend’s cat is pretty cool. I work in HR and just got accepted to grad school! More than anything, I want to help YOU succeed in your fitness goals, wherever you are at. If you’re new to barre, so am I, so we will do this together!
