Her birth sign is Taurus. She is a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (CSCS), Certified Nutritional Practitioner (CNP), psychology grad and health coach.
She left her office job in pursuit of a degree in holistic nutrition. Katie began going to gym in order to be in a better shape, but her significant progress in the field made her follow this path more eagerly and competently.
She is also famous for posting workout and nutrition contents on her social pages. She wants to help other people understand what they are capable of by gaining the required knowledge to meet their goals and enhance their self-confidence.
The Beginning of Her Journey as a Fitness Professional
At first, she was not interested in lifting heavy weights. She was only used to do body weight exercises at home along with playing ordinary sports at school. At her late teens, serious gastroenteritis symptoms such as heartburn, severe bloating, and constant extreme fatigue after eating began to bother her. These severe symptoms left exhausted to the extent that she decided to radically change her lifestyle. After nobody and nothing else, including medical help and doctors’ prescriptions, could help her, she started following a strength-based exercise plan and a more restricted and organized diet.
In order to acquire better knowledge about body functions and nutrition she quit her 9-5 office job and took a holistic nutrition course. The outcome of practical knowledge and regular exercises was extraordinary improvement of her symptoms. Although her body did not change immediately and dramatically, she benefited from other aspects of her new workout plan.

Katie’s Tips and Recommendations for Workout Plans
According to Katie, training programs can be flexible but it should be consistent. She mostly does her workout program at gym; however, in her busy days she goes with a set of creative workouts at home. In her before-after images of transformation, it is obvious how noticeably she has grown her legs and glutes. Her secret to such toned lower body is heavy weight training along with many sets and repetitions. She also observes resting between the sets so that her muscles are fully recovered and ready to get volume in.
Her favorite workout plan includes push-ups for chest and triceps, deadlift and pull-ups for back and biceps, squats, deadlift, and lunges for legs, and hanging leg raises and planks for abdominals and core. She admires workout ambitions but disproves over-ambitious people who cut calories too low and start doing cardio too much. According to Katie, in doing so not only one is a lot more likely to lose muscles but it will be very hard to sustain. She believes that seeing the result is not equal to going such extremes.
Katie recommends combining exercises in order to improve body strength and form. Combining exercises is a proper strategy for those who want to save time. Another time-savor plan can be using “antagonist supersets” (two back-to-back exercises that work on opposite muscle groups).
Katie’s Tips and Recommendations for Diet Plans
First and foremost, she advices her followers to cut processed foods as low as they can and gradually change their eating habits to nutrient-rich and clean foods. Her own diet mostly includes proteins and healthy fats. She recommends that people establish their diet by protein and fat intake, then, fill in the remaining calories with carbohydrates. Katie uses carbs as a post-workout energy fuel and cheat-meals. She recommends dropping 300 to 600 calories per day when one wants to lose weight. But, she also underlines that the dropped calories must come from nutrient-poor foods that are calorie-heavy. They have to be replaced with those types of foods that have fewer calories and more micro-nutrients, including kale, blueberries, Swiss chard, avocado, lean fish, etc.
Katie says if one suddenly lowers her calorie intake, his/her body will probably consume its muscles rather than fat. She emphasizes that calorie deficits should be small and the change should be made gradually and steadily. This will preserve muscle mass, make the fat loss more efficient, and allow the body to adapt the diet changes. She says 1 Ibs (about half a kg) fat loss in a week is ideal.
Her recipe for a healthy smoothie is banana, almond milk or coconut water. It can also be mixed with ground flax, protein powder, hemp seeds, cinnamon, leafy greens (such as kale, parsley, mint leaves, spinach, etc.), berries, chia seeds, cacao powder, coconut oil, nut butters (including almond butter, cashew butter, and pumpkin seed butter), shredded coconut, extracts (such as almond extract, orange extract, peppermint extract), and pitted dates as natural sweetness.
