Thank you for exploring my blog!
My name is Katie. I am a nutrition coach for the company Working Against Gravity and NAMS certified personal trainer. I switched careers from being an attorney because I love helping people feel better and stronger and healthier.
I have competed in seven NPC (National Physique Committee) competitions, starting in 2011 in the Bikini division. Later I switched to the Figure division because I love the look of muscle on women.
In summer 2016, I hung up my (clear) high heels and began training in a more “functional fitness” style (CrossFit). This was life-changing! It helped heal my disordered eating tendencies and has taught me to love and appreciate my body for its strength rather than solely how it looks.
While doing CrossFit, I discovered that the most fascinating and fun part was lifting heavy! So I decided to specialize in powerlifting and Olympic weightlifting. I hired my first powerlifting coach in fall 2017 and love feeling strong!
Currently, my goals are to compete in my first powerlifting meet in spring 2018!
On a personal note, I am married to my best friend Rocko, who loves fitness just as much as I do! He played collegiate and professional basketball (yes, he is tall. But I can still beat him in an eating competition!).
I started this blog in 2011 and it continues today as my journey branches off in different directions. Who knows where life will take me next?
