  • Katie Normandia
    Fitness Instructor / Personal Trainer

    Ten plus years ago I looked in the mirror and was unhappy with what looked back at me. I made a million excuses why I was overweight and blamed my “big bones” and genetics. I didn’t realize how amazing my body could feel given the right foods and healthy habits.

    I took myself through a total body transformation losing almost 50lbs in 16 weeks. No gimmicks, no pills, no diet foods. Just exercise and healthy eating. I lost the weight and gained a zest for life I didn’t know I was missing. The success and confidence I found in the gym followed me into my everyday life. I found my passion.

    I have been teaching group fitness classes for almost 10 years, transforming hundreds of lives and helping people live happier, healthier and more productive lives. We all have this one life to live so let your worst day be yesterday because you deserve to feel amazing today! I can’t wait to meet you!
