Kim's Bio

I am a personal trainer in Pacific Palisades and Santa Monica. I am dedicated to the health and fitness lifestyle.
I left my family in Germany and moved to Los Angeles on a dance Scholarship just before my eighteenth birthday. I spent seven days a week in an academy of highly driven, highly caffeinated, young adults and was dancing 6-8 hours every day, hardly sleeping at all. It was a highly competitive environment and I was constantly concerned about my weight, having already gained six pounds since I moved, and if I gained one more I thought I would never get a job. I did graduate from the Debbie Reynolds Studio a year later, very happy, tired and skinny.

After four years working as a professional dancer I began to struggle with the lifestyle and emotional and physical toll. As a twenty four year old, I was not sleeping well, drank coffee with every meal and the recovery from injuries lasted much longer than I thought it should. I knew that something was not right. My doctors told me, that my adrenal glands were drained and I had chronic fatigue syndrome. I finally decided to make a change. And since I always enjoyed reading about nutrition and anatomy, I took a basic personal training certification course.

This changed my life forever. I dug into the shelves at the bookstore and read pretty much everything I could find on Food, Supplements, Meditation and Bodybuilding. I very quickly built my own personal training business. The more my clientele grew, the more I was inspired to learn other methods of fitness and healing such as Hatha Yoga, Pantajali’s Philosophy and Pranayama. I passed the exam with The American College of Sports Medicine, America’s highest tier and most challenging personal training certification. I also took a year long teacher training at Yogaworks and was blessed with countless hours in the classrooms of my world famous mentors Bryan Kest, Shiva Rea, Annie Carpenter and Vinnie Marino. And I challenged myself by completing two marathons, even though I never considered myself a runner, and began a daily practice in Gracie Jui-Jitsu. It reinforced my belief that some challenges are more a matter of thought than physical ability. Knowing what you want, making a plan how to achieve it and following through even when it initially feels uncomfortable, is an essential asset of the athlete and is something each one of us can learn and practice inside and outside the gym.

Along with a list of celebrities such as Angelina Jolie and her children, Charlie and Brooke Sheen and the JJ Abrams family, I have also had many clients with severe health issues, limitations and challenges.

Kim's Testimonials

I have been training with Kim for several years now. After the first hour I spend with Kim, I know it would be a great experience. She genuinely cares about improving her clients physical well being while motivating them to reach their goals, plans interesting and varied word outs both inside the gym and outside, and makes training fun! I started training with a single goal of loosing weight. Not only have I reached my goal weight with Kim’s help, I have more energy, strength, and muscle definition. I have gone from being someone who dislikes working out, to looking forward to my sessions with Kim.

I have found Kim to be an extraordinary physical trainer of tremendous versatility, intelligence and discipline. I train with her at my house, where there is plenty of gym equipment, or on set where she gets very creative. Her attitude is always inspiring and her knowledge is exceptional.

After the twins, it has really been tough to get my body back in shape. Kim’s training is a lot of fun. She always motivates me to keep going and wont let me get away with being lazy.
