Hi there! My name is Kym!
I grew up on a garlic farm in Wisconsin and moved to NYC shortly after earning my BA in dance at UW-Stevens Point. I’ve always been an active person with a big imagination and love for movement. My passion for dance and anything that generates happiness in myself and others has pushed me beyond what I thought was possible. Though I’ve always been passionate I haven’t always felt like I was good enough physically for my dreams and that lead me down a path of disordered eating and body dysmorphia in order to fit someone else’s ideal. I’ve come to realize that bodies come in all different shapes and sizes. That what matters more than the arbitrary number inside your jeans is that you feel your best and are able to do the things that make you feel good. I may not have the typical “dancer body” or the typical “trainer body” and that’s okay. I have MY body and by going out and doing the things I love to do with the body I have I hope to encourage body diversity in every space.

My mission with this website, with the work I do with my clients and what I hope to bring to this world is to redefine what it means to be healthy.
We are over-saturated in today's busy world with eat this and not that, do this workout, want this shape and this magic pill will blah blah blah. Enough is enough. We need to take our own power back as citizens and consumers to be able to discern whats worth our time and what is just noise made to confuse us into spending our time, money and most importantly our energy on. I completely understand the feeling behind wanting to change, be it lose weight or "get healthy" or just be more productive. I've been there...No ya know what, I am there! Because there is here and sometimes it's in between and to be honest just seems to constantly move around. It can seem so incredibly out of reach one day and then remarkably underfoot the next. Which is exactly why I do what I do. I want us all to realize that our worth is not tied to whether our thighs touch or not, whether our waist "goes in" from our hips, how much we can lift or how little we can eat. That true health should be defined as being able to do all the things you love to do without pain, both physical and emotional. Health should be predicated on getting in all the whole foods that make our brains and bodies happy while also enjoying life to it's fullest. No size requirements, no extreme diets that leave us fatigued, emotional and unstable. Plain and simple health is us, as human beings, being happy in our bodies, in our minds and through our actions. No guilt required to enjoy some pizza and no shame in dancing in your undies to Cher in the middle of your living room...that last one might just be me. Point still stands though, be you, be happy and feed the life you want to and are proud to live!
