A Note from Kaitlyn
Interior Designer to Fitness Industry Girl
If you would have told a younger version of myself that THIS is what I would be doing in my life, I would have probably laughed in your face. Public speaking was never a strong suit of mine until I had a professor in college count my "ums" and then everything changed.
Maybe from my passion you might think that I went to school for Exercise Science, you'd probably find it interesting to hear that I actually have a Bachelor's of Science in Interior Design. I worked in the field for roughly six years before deciding that I needed more out of life. That's where barre came into my life, from barre came yoga teacher training, from yoga came group fitness... (can you see the trend?). My interest in the fitness industry is ever growing and I am constantly looking for ways to make my classes better (which usually means more challenging) for my clients in group settings and in private sessions.
I currently teach at numerous yoga/fitness studios around Kalamazoo, but then I was asked by a friend if I would be willing to start to teach her private sessions in her basement. Of course I said yes, a chance to do what I was learning I loved while helping out a friend! As I started to talk about this with other friends they asked if I would be willing to do this with them virtually as well (as they live in other cities). I started to wonder if this was something I could actually do outside of my friend group! I vaguely thought of ideas about how I would run my own (actual) business or yoga studio... from this idea came just an idea for a space to hold private sessions. I love teaching at the other studios but I wanted to offer something more for the clients that wanted a more private setting. That's when out of the blue, at least it seemed that way to me since I was reading the text while walking into the grocery store, I was asked to be apart of this concept to open a place that really was the home for numerous businesses. I loved it! We can all keep each other accountable but we can all do our own thing.
Fourteen days later I signed a lease to a space with the owners of
Health is Wealth Yoga and Susan Corak Yoga.
So here we are, if you've made it this far, welcome to KP (Fit)ness.
Some things about to the studio to consider:
Please keep phones out of the main studio area and on silent as to not disrupt class or your session
Please read and understand the cancellation policy, this can be found in the FAQ section
This is a NO judgement studio!
The ever wondering mind to learn more, I'm always looking for new ways to learn and new things to learn about.
