A Little About Me
My name is Kathleen Trotter (MSc, CSN). I am a personal trainer, author of Finding Your Fit, nutritionist, life coach, wellness writer, and overall health enthusiast. I love my job. My mission is to inspire as many people as possible to adopt (in an intelligent way) a healthier lifestyle and to make healthier choices because they love themselves, not because they hate themselves. I don’t believe in body shame. I do believe in goals and results. I don’t believe in being “easy” on yourself or letting negative “brain propaganda” win. I do believe in self-compassion and holding yourself accountable. I don’t believe in being active to “create a whole new you.” I believe in being you, but working toward creating a “you” who has more healthy habits this month than last year. I believe in learning and growth. I believe in passion. I believe in joy. Most importantly, I believe in actively creating the version of yourself that you want to be, and that the key to health success is finding YOUR fit — hence the name of my first book Finding Your Fit.
How do I spend my time?
My work week is a combination of seeing clients at my boutique studio in downtown Toronto, writing for various publications including Huffington Post and The Globe and Mail, traveling for speaking engagements and media opportunities including monthly segments on Breakfast Television Montreal and Rogers Ottawa, promoting my book Finding Your Fit through TV, print, and radio opportunities, and working with various companies including Flaman Fitness.
Personally, I love finding pockets of joy, spending time with my partner, James, trying fun fitness classes with friends and my mom, running, cycling, seeing theatre with my parents (both are in the arts), listening to audiobooks, coming up with new Kathleenisms, and attending lectures. My goal for 2018 is to be an art gallery and museum “culture vulture” on the third Sunday of every month.
My services include personal training, personalized programs, group seminars, and fitness writing. Visit my Fitness Training page to learn more.
