Naperville, IL 60565
Unlike many fitness professionals, Kay was not always a fitness enthusiast. In 2006, at the age of 47, she decided to fight her family history of heart disease; so, she joined a gym, learned to swim, bike and run in order to compete in the sport of triathlon. Her enthusiasm for fitness and desire to motivate others to lead a healthy, active lifestyle was just the beginning. “ Health and fitness is a progression, not a finish line”.
Kay works with individuals of all ages and abilities. She is a 200-RYT with Yoga Alliance and is an ISSA (International Sports Sciences Association) Certified Personal Trainer and holds multiple Group Training and Indoor Cycling certifications including ACE, AFFA, Schwinn, and Spinning®.
In addition to teaching Yoga and Pilates, she is the owner of OPT-In™, offering in-home personal training. Kay has been a repeat guest on Indoor Cycling Pro Podcast and a presenter at Club Industry, Chicago. She is currently pursuing Yoga for 12-Step Recovery and Nutrition Coach certifications.
Kay has also coached adult beginner running groups and led small group training classes to introduce participants to efficient cardio training programs with the use of a heart rate monitor and the Heart Zones® Training methodology. She is a Heart Zones® Level 3+ Trainer. She collaborated in the ACE Parkinson’s Cycling certification, and is currently developing Yoga FITT™.
When she’s not at the studio, or with her clients, you will find her running with her rescue AmStaff, Toodles, caring for her twin granddaughters, or traveling with her husband of 37 years.
