"WHOLE, The thing that I am most passionate about in life is influencing people to become WHOLE."

Every person truly desires the best for themselves. Many of us however lack the tools necessary to set and achieve goals that will bring us to a place of Well being. My desire is to assist people in setting and achieving their health related goals through accountability, motivation and education and offering a Holistic approach to a healthy lifestyle.

Personal fitness does not just benefit the body but also the spirit and mind. When you understand this truth and act on it you then can begin to have an Outstanding attitude about yourself that will motivate you to Live life to the fullest. I believe there is nothing more exciting, fun and fulfilling than investing into something that will cause you to have a more Energized life.

    I came to NWPT to recover from an injury but never expected to start "loving a good, hard workout." Kara has been instrumental in developing that love of fitness. My favorite workout with her is cycling class pushing us to reach the goal we each set for the class (and them some). Her playlists are just as upbeat as she is whether it's 5:30 am or pm. My perception is she is also a fantastic leader of the fitness team at NWPT and a wonderful one on one trainer. Watching her come back from a 2nd pregnancy and drop the baby weight was an inspiration! I'm choked up thinking she is moving to Nashville. If I am ever in town I would drop in for a class she's leading in a heartbeat! If you are looking for a trainer that makes the time fly while you are pressing towards reaching your goals, hire Kara.

    Kara has taught me many things about working out but the one thing that I take with me everyday is that I can always dig a little deeper, give it on more turn, one more twist, one more bend and she is right, that extra bit is always there if you want it. Just give her 30 minutes, she will change your life. Thanks Kara

    Kara is an awesome personal trainer and class trainer. I personally have worked with her in both areas. Kara has the knowledge to train the "whole" person, including nutrition. Kara is always pushing me to the next level and works hard right along with me. She is always looking for new ways to make her training better and enjoyable. I also had the opportunity to ride 204 miles from Seattle to Portland. What an amazing person she is. I call her my friend and would recommend her for anyone who is looking to get in shape, get in better shape, or wanting to reach a certain goal. She can make it happen. Thank You Kara for all that you have done for me.

    Kara is one of the most positive and upbeat trainers I have had the pleasure to workout with. She is a sweetie but she will push you HARD and make you WORK! We will all miss her but who ever hires her you can be assured you will be getting an outstanding trainer.

    I was one of the very first clients to train with Kara at Northwest Personal Training and have always loved her upbeat personality and ability to bring out the best in me. Thanks, very much, Kara for always having a great attitude and a smile.
