Welcome, I’m pleased to meet you!
I’m Kathi, and I live in the small town of Uxbridge, Massachussetts with my husband Nick, my son Landon, my daughter Kiersten, and my two labrador retreivers!
Prior to having children, I was an elementary school teacher for eight years, with a masters degree in special education. I’ve always loved teaching and inspiring others to reach their potential. When my son was born in 2012, Nick and I made a decision for me to stay at home to raise our kids. I became a Beachbody coach in June of 2014.
My Fitness Journey
My own fitness journey has gone through many ups and downs. In high school, I was on the track team and was in great shape. I always worked out, but in college the weight crept up and stayed up until our wedding in 2006. However, I didn’t maintain the healthly lifestyle and between 2006 and 2009, again my weight crept up on my husband and I.
In 2009, we decided to get in shape again. We had always worked out but sticking with the diet was always so difficult. At one point we were ordering a pizza and buffalo tenders three or four nights a week! We began training for the 2009 Boston Marathon, and we had great success, finishing the race together in a little over 5 hours. Not an earth-shattering time, but we made it to the end! At that point I hit the scales at 152 pounds.
Right after that, I heard for the first time from my friend and fellow coach Daryl about P90X. She raved about the program and the results she was getting. My husband and I jumped into it thinking with all our running it would be easy. WRONG! It kicked our asses! For the next three months we worked hard at the program, committing to our diets and our workouts, and the results were incredible. I went to 137 pounds, losing 15 pounds; and my husband dropped almost 20 pounds. We felt GREAT – so great that we were actually selected to be in an infomercial for the ProForm XT Incline Trainer. (We had trained for the Marathon partially on a treadmill).

A few years later, I fell off the programs again. In 2012, pregnant with my son, I hit the scales at 200 pounds. I knew I had to get back into shape, but it still took me time to commit. After my daughter was born in January of 2014, I found Beachbody products again – first with T25, and then afterwards, the 21 Day Fix. In a few months, a combination of Shakeology and hard work, I got into the best shape of my life, again, and I feel better than ever!
