Meet Some Outstanding Members Who Inspire the World to Fitness®!

Paul Katami
Hollywood, California
Member Since 2005

"When I teach fitness classes or train with clients, I want to feel like a good friend who is sharing something healthy and valuable versus just being an instructor or a drill sergeant," says Paul Katami, group fitness manager and instructor, personal trainer and Katamibar creator. He firmly believes that it is this style of training that helps foster a holistic, "life-of-health-and-wellness" mentality. "I think that my most valuable recent experience was taking my Katamibar program to the U.S. Marine Corps fitness centers at Camp Pendleton, California," he recalls. "The marines were so great and inviting, and they really understood the value of fitness in terms of training to keep themselves ready for action."
