Katie has been working at AXIS for over 8 years. She works with a wide range of populations... from pregnant women to seniors; from ultra-marathon endurance athletes to busy working couples; from spinal/hip/knee/shoulder rehabbers to the technicians who read their MRI's in the hospital.
Katie's background in the fitness industry comes from years as an athlete and more years as a scientist. She was a high school and college Rower and Cross Country athlete. A degree in Exercise Science led Katie to pursue Physical Therapy, and she worked in the Sports Medicine Center at Stanford University. The component of PT which she enjoyed most was the one-on-one connection with patients and the training of exercises to help them move and feel better. So, with her perfectionist's eye from PT and athletic competitive drive, Katie realized she would fit best in Personal Training. She specializes in core strength and fat loss. Katie's done (and continues to do) extensive research on sports nutrition and biochemical response to feeding/exercise. Katie loves working with passionate clients who come here to work hard and discover the changes they can create in their lives through exercise.

"I started working out with Katie about 2 and half years ago. Since I started with Katie my weight dropped from about 155lbs to 119lbs. My body fat dropped from around 30% to 13%. My half marathon time went from 2 hrs 36 minutes (on 1/17/2010) to 1 hr and 51 minutes (on 3/3/2012). I'm stronger and faster than I ever thought I could be. I have never done the same workout twice and I average about 3 sessions per week. Katie pushes me to my limits and often even beyond them. I'm in the best shape of my life. The sessions are worth every penny."
"This is my first gym experience and I am so lucky to have Katie as my personal trainer. I really appreciate her patience and friendly smile."
