About 8 weeks before my wedding, I reached out to Katie about her online training program, and told her I wanted to focus on upper body, core, and High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT), and left the rest up to her. Each week she sent me a workout to do 2-3 times a week on my own time. With my crazy, and ever changing schedule, the online program was an excellent fit for me because I could do the workouts on my own time. There were weeks that I found it challenging to motivate or fit in a minimum two sessions, but having one of Katie’s workouts pushed me to make it happen, and I was always glad I did.
There was one week where Katie sent me a super intense core centric workout, and with my core being my weakest asset, I immediately pushed back thinking I couldn’t do it. I asked her to change up the workout, but instead of doing so, she encouraged me to challenge myself and do as much as I could. To my dismay, I pushed through every plank and every mountain climber, and by the next workout, I definitely noticed my core was stronger and my confidence was lifted.
After 8 weeks of working with Katie, I sat down at the nail salon to get a pedicure the day before my wedding. Next to my massage chair, I came upon on a SHAPE magazine with Jillian on the cover, and thought to myself…”I got it! I got Jillian Michaels’ arms!!” Whether or not you could honestly look at my arms and say they looked like hers, they sure felt like they did, and that is all that mattered to me.
Going into my wedding day, I have never felt so strong, confident, and beautiful in my life. Katie’s workouts combined full body, core, upper body, and HIIT workouts that tightened and toned my entire body. I am ever so grateful for Katie’s help for feeling my best on my special day. I will never forget it.
“I have been working with Katie for the past 8 months and can honestly say I feel so much stronger and toned which was my goal. I got married in September and Katie really helped me amp up my routine to get ready. There have been days I couldn’t believe how much I was sweating or how sore I was the next day, which is a sign of success in my book! I love that Katie is always introducing me to new exercises and circuits and it’s never the same old thing. She puts a lot of time into my sessions every week making sure we’re hitting up the whole body and she continuously challenges me with heavier weights and different exercises. Katie and I are old high school friends so it has also been great reconnecting. Our sessions seem to go by faster because of her positive attitude AND our shared love of awful reality TV and the latest celebrity gossip!”

“Kathleen Uhran can make any woman feel good about her body. Most trainers I have worked with have been unapproachable or unrealistic in their expectations, Kathleen has tailored my workout to best fit my frame and what I want to look like. Since I have been working with Kathleen my core, legs and arms feel so much stronger and it has only been a month. She Rocks Fitness! I am making all of my bridesmaids train with Kathleen two months before the wedding so we can all look our best on the big day.”
Jocelyn Steele Ege:
I began working with Katie 4 months after the birth of my second child. I had lost half the weight but was discouraged by the new shape of my body and the aches and pains that came with it. We began slowly and worked on building my core, legs and then later work on full body circuits. I was amazed at how quickly I gained muscle and how all my aches started to disappear as I gained strength. By my son’s first birthday I was thinner than before I had been before he was born, even thinner than when I was married! I am addicted to the ease of training with a coach and certainly addicted to the results!
“I’ve changed my eating habits and my exercise habits (thanks to you). I am getting to the gym, and I am getting stronger. So thank you so much! You really have shaped my new outlook and I think it’s hilarious that for the first time in my life, I was surprised by my weight. It feels so natural, it doesn’t seem like I’ve lost over 20 pounds. It’s becoming more apparent now that it’s getting colder again and all the clothes I wore last year are too big. and more importantly, my prized Louis Vuitton knee high boots went over my calves so easy….last year I couldn’t wear them! You are amazing, thank you for the inspiration and the resources to change my body!”
“I have known Katie since we were in Nursery school and I have been following her Facebook posts and blogs over the past 5 years. So, I have been truly impressed by her understanding and dedication of fitness and nutrition. I knew that Katie had insights and knowledge in an area that I was clueless, yet had a strong desire to want to know better. I have hired trainers at the gym in the past, but it was prohibitively expensive. I have gone to the gym on my own and attempted to do whatever I felt were the right exercises, but felt like I didn’t have any focus, purpose or direction in my workouts. So, I reached out to Katie because, again, she is the expert and I wanted to create a more focused game plan that gave me purpose each and every time I went to the gym. I LOVE getting the email delivered to my inbox every Sunday night like clockwork! I know that once I receive that program, the rest is up to me. I don’t have a problem getting to the gym; my problem was not knowing exactly what to do once I got there. Katie’s online training programs solve that problem for me!”
I look forward to this very affordable Boot Camp, which occurs on Mondays. It is a time to spend with others, yet focus on my own health, both physical and mental. The dishes and laundry can always wait! Katie’s bootcamp has led me to add in some additional healthy decisions. For example, I have taken up running. My dog Savannah has become my companion. Likewise, I am tracking my food intake down on paper. Why not focus on a bit of everything, diet and exercise.
I hope that my story helps you to get motivated. The summer is coming and there is no time like the present. Katie can help along the way. She is fit, knowledgeable and a pleasure to be around. I would never push myself as hard as she pushes us. Whether alone or in a group, consider becoming someone that ROCKS!
