Kari’s passion for fitness and health started at a young age when she was training for Downhill Ski Racing. She worked with many personal trainers trying to keep her body healthy and loved the work they did with her. Because skiing is a hard sport on the body, she endured many injuries and therefore spent a lot of time rehabbing them through physiotherapy and active rehab. She learned a lot about the body during that time and with a season ending injury decided it was time to go back to school.
She graduated in 2011 with a Degree in Human Kinetics: Kinesiology and Health Sciences from the University of British Columbia. While at school, she competed on the UBC Thunderbirds Ski Team for 4 years. During her last semester at school, she became their strength and conditioning coach. Since then, she has been working as a full time Personal Training Coach and Kinesiologist in the Tri-Cities. Her true passion is to help others when it comes to health and wellness. She realizes that everyone is different and focuses her sessions on safe exercise techniques specific to their needs and goals.
