I am 54 years young and a busy Mom of triplet boys, age 9 I love skydiving, kayaking, bowling, biking and working out, weight training with Kettlebells being my favorite form of exercise. Adopting a fitness lifestyle has changed the course of my life .

I have flirted with exercise, fitness and healthy eating throughout the years, never fully committing to any one thing I’ve tried all the diet quick fixes like Cambridge, Atkins, grapefruit, Master cleanse, low fat, no fat, low carb, no carb…. I’ve participated in many of the exercise trends such as Jazzercise, Pilates, yoga aerobics ,step, spinning, Stairmaster, ab blaster, stationary biking and even had a thigh master……all with varying short-lived degrees of success (and failure).

Then, 1 day I woke up. I realized that after years of cultivating less than healthy habits and all the while become increasingly sedentary and dissatisfied with my appearance that it was time to make some serious changes. I wasn’t in anywhere near the kind of shape I needed to be in to live the kind of life I wanted not just for myself but my children .So, I hired a personal trainer and got started on my journey.

Like an epiphany, I finally accepted and embraced the truth! if I wanted to look and feel great and slow down the aging process AND have the energy and stamina to keep up with my boys and pursue my dreams, then I needed to incorporate exercise and sound nutrition into my life on a daily basis.

So, I hired a personal trainer and got started on my journey With the guidance, motivation and support that I received from several trainers and mentors I was able to achieve and surpass my goals, losing over 50 lbs.; paving the way for my own self motivation and long term adherence. These accomplishments have restored my confidence and self esteem and made me a stronger and better person, inside and out.
Last year I entered and finished my first triathlon .I look better than ever and feel sexy again and that’s just icing on the cake! Needless to say, I am completely passionate about working out and the benefits of exercise I believe that a consistent fitness regime will positively impact ANYONE’s LIFE! Is it easy, NO! Is it worth it, YES!!

That was almost 4 years ago that I decided to become personal trainer. It was my way to channel all things positive from my journey and put my passion into action. Playing a role, directly or indirectly in helping someone become more healthy and fit and ultimately changing their life is as rewarding as it gets.
I have since discovered my passion for Kettlebells as one the most effective, efficient and fun forms of
exercise out there I have 3 kettlebell certifications and have recently become a part of the RKC kettllebell
family. I plan to take the RKC Challenge this fall after attending the HKC Cert. in June of this year.

So if you are absolutely ready to make some real changes call Karma’s Passion 4 Fitness. We can begin I identifying your specific needs, setting goals and determining the path we need to take to achieve them.

I look forward to hearing from you.

    Karma is - by far - the best trainer I've worked with. She is very knowledgeable about the body, weight training, and nutrition. She is continuously seeking more knowledge and education in order to provide greater services and benefits to her clients. She knows how to push you beyond your limits just the right amount so that you can get the most out of your workouts. She is truly passionate about fitness, and lives and breathes everything that she teaches. I've also never seen a trainer more dedicated to your health. When you hire her, she is there with you every step of the way - during the good and the bad. If you backtrack, she is right there to pick you up and keep you going. She's a great motivator, teacher, guru, and mentor. You won't be disappointed when working with her. - Christine F.
