Greetings! My name is Jennifer Katt, though I like Jen Katt best. I am a Certified Personal Trainer through the American College of Sports Medicine and the National Council for Certified Personal Trainers. I am also a Weight Management Specialist through the American Council on Exercise. Welcome to “Surround Fitness,” and to my website.
Here you will find my growing collection of blogs offering assorted advice and guidance on exercise and nutrition. My plan is to help people (mainly women over 40) realize a healthy and sustainable lifestyle, working it from all angles—what you eat, how and how much you move, and where you put your energy: thus the “surround fitness” moniker.
What Do I Offer? Surround Fitness will create for you a 4-week or 16-week program of personalized fitness and nutrition training for a healthy sustainable lifestyle. I come to you, with weekly sessions delivered in your home. (read more…)
Giving Back. Another aspect of my “mission” is to work with nonprofit organizations at the community level to help stem the tide of obesity and sedentariness that is engulfing our society and afflicting people of all ages. It is a dream come true, to be able to devote myself full-time to a holistic vision of fitness and also to give back to the community. Please contact me if you know of any speaking or workshop opportunities. My presentations are known for being informative, interactive, and, best of all, fun!
I left a long career as a science writer to become a personal trainer/fitness instructor/nutrition counselor because I wanted to go where—as the writer and theologian Frederick Buechner said—my “deep gladness and the world’s deep hunger meet.” So, here I am, revved up and eager to teach others what I know, even while I continue learning. I hope you will become a regular visitor to my site!
–Keep moving, Jen Katt
