Katelynn is a 25 year old Hoosier native who now calls Lexington home. She majored in Communications at the University of Kentucky and is now finishing her Master’s degree in Speech Language Pathology. She chose this profession, because she gets immense joy out of helping others in their greatest times of need. This passion for helping others is also what helps keeps her motivated as a trainer at Bodyfit Punch.
Katelynn has been a trainer at Bodyfit since 2012, but first fell in love with the kickboxing classes as a client. During her first class with Jon, she experienced her fist real “wake up call” when she was unable to even finish the class due to her unhealthy lifestyle. It was just the motivation she needed to change her habits and start getting active. “I tell people often about my struggles in the beginning of my fitness journey. Getting healthy isn’t easy and it’s a huge lifestyle change. But the best part is, it can be done in small steps that help get you closer to your goals each and every day. You don’t have to change over night, nor should you. Life is about balance.” Katelynn’s ability to connect with clients on a personal level is one of her many strengths and what makes training so intriguing to her. She gets true joy out of seeing others reach their goals – whether its holding a plank 10 seconds longer, losing an extra pound, or fitting into a favorite pair of jeans – everyone has different motivators that make working out an important part of their day. Katelynn understands this and uses it as a tool to help get her clients to their next level of fitness.
When Katelynn isn’t at Bodyfit, she finds time to work at lululemon in order to supplement her extreme addiction to the stylish line of active wear. “I get to motivate people to reach their goals at one job, then sell top of the line, adorable workout wear at another job. Life just doesn’t get any better than that.” When it comes to fitness, Katelynn truly is a dabbler at heart. Yoga, TRX, barre, cardio… you name it, she’s probably tried it. However, she has never lost her passion for what she considers one of the best workouts around;kickboxing. “I’ve never experienced another workout that is as fast-paced and challenging as the Punch classes at Bodyfit. Not only is it a great workout, but it’s empowering, too.”
In addition to her passion for fitness, Katelynn has 3 other loves in life: her family and friends, her dog, and food. “What’s the point in working your butt off if you don’t get to enjoy pizza every once in awhile?”
