Karen's Personal Training Style:

  • Challenging​

  • Supportive

  • Fun

On a break from being an English Teacher, Karen began training friends and friends-of-friends in NYC 2011. Karen has always led a physically active life and prioritized her own health, and saw there was a need for helping high-achieving, over-scheduled New Yorkers do the same.


Karen started teaching after work bootcamps, training in private and corporate office gyms, and doing VIP house calls. She became a certified PT (NASM) and turned her passion into my career. But wellness and health are not just about burning calories and lifting weights: Karen aims to take a holistic approach to lifelong fitness by incorporating recovery, mindfulness, habit assessment and change, nutrition, and stress management. To this end, Karen eventually became certified as a yoga teacher (‘13), Health Coach (‘12), Running Coach (‘17), meditation teacher (‘16), and Stretch Therapist (‘19).


Her greatest job satisfaction comes from witnessing clients blow away their own preconceived limitations of their abilities. The joy she gets from being there for someone’s first box jump, pull-up, marathon, headstand, or 2-minute plank is incomparable. But it’s also the little victories in between: running to catch a train without getting out of breath; having the strength to carry two kids and three shopping bags uphill and barely breaking a sweat; sleeping better; feeling less tight and achy; looking forward to workouts, and so many more small wins that add up to more confidence, personal pride, and desire to keep moving forward. This is what keeps us healthy and happy in the long run. Karen believes we are capable of so much more than we think, and she wants to help others realize that for themselves.


I was so nervous to start personal training, but KJ made it such an approachable, enjoyable, and fun process. She is extremely committed to her clients’ progress, and I am so grateful for her being a part of my fitness journey!

KJ is the most intentional, prepared, and present trainer I’ve ever worked with and that difference has helped me gain strength and focus on overall wellness. KJ is knowledgeable and focused – her commitment to training me encourages me to do the same and more than I would on my own.

I've been working with KJ for over a year now and she is the best! I felt instantly comfortable from the first session and genuinely look forward to each workout with her. She meets you where you are, is always encouraging and helps to work towards goals that we set together. Couldn't ask for a better trainer!
