What You Need vs Don't Need to Workout

I'm going to lose my marbles if I see one more fitspo make it seem like their matching two-piece outfit or branded shaker bottle is what makes or breaks their workout.

You don't need:

name brand shoes

matching shirt/legging sets

fancy gym equipment

protein powder

greens juice

1+ hours

15+ exercises

or any other bs

You do need:

your body

a coachable mindset

to warm-up

adherence and consistency


items you can use as weights (dumbbells, kettlebells, barbells, soup cans, backpack filled with wine bottles, whatever you can find)

a water bottle or access to water

It's nice to follow social media accounts that are aesthetic or walk you through their pre-, intra-, and post-workout routine, but often times we can simplify it.

Some of my best lifts have been done in a groutfit with a hat on and no shoes on.

Make your workouts simple and accessible, and you will always get it done.

Hey, friend!

I'm Katharine.

I'm a personal trainer, running coaching, and nutrition coach who's stoked about lifting, the outdoors, summit snacks, and my dog.


I understand that fitness is not your whole life. Fitness is a PART of your life. I approach training in a way that adds value to your life and longevity, so you can enjoy being active whether you're romping around in the mountains, playing with your kids, or signing up for your first 10K race.

I'm here to meet you where you are, so you can train safely and effectively, and gain strength and confidence both in the gym and on the trails.
