Passionate about anything wellness
Kim has been passionate about Health & Fitness since she was in her 20's.
Over the years, she learned the hard way about fueling and training your body for sports and daily life. At 23, she hit rock bottom while struggling with anorexia. She did not realize the importance of whole body wellness and how it impacted her training. "All I did was run and nothing else and was getting injured constantly." She decided to learn all she could about nutrition and fitness in order to make positive changes in her life.
Now in her late 50's, Kim has an abundance of knowledge from her personal journey, that she’s eager to share and help others, especially with other busy women.
Kim started Your Health Sense, as a side hustle, while working full-time as a Print producer and raising two boys (now in their teens). Kim has taught group exercise classes for decades, and is also a certified Nutritionist as well as a trainer specializing in Diastasis Recti (DR). After self diagnosing and "I peed my pants all the way to the finish line of a road race 3 weeks post partum, I knew something was not right!" Kim decided to learn all she could about DR in 2008 and continues to learn. She healed her Diastasis Recti with a custom exercise program. She has helped both men and women with DR.
She has continued to stay current with new and emerging trends in the Health, Fitness & Wellness industries with numerous certifications along the way. Kim is a life longer learner. With numerous certifications under belt, she recently finished her Postpartum Corrective Specialist Certification (PCES) 1.0 and PCES 2.0. as well as the Pelvic Pro certification.
Over the years you could often find Kim teaching her outdoor boot camp classes, no matter what the weather was, be it rain, snow or sun. And also virtually!
She continues to coach individuals – but especially frustrated busy moms! – who are struggling with maintaining healthy nutrition, posture and fitness while juggling mom life...and perhaps another profession. She offers health and fitness programs suitable to each person's needs.
Kim also teaches wellness workshops in every type of company and community. Both in person and virtually and geared toward the working mom.
Her classroom experience includes teaching Nutrition & Fitness class for credit with MIT Physical Education Community Wellness, and Basic Nutrition at a private high school in Belmont. She is currently teaching gym class to K-4 grade in Belmont.
Some of Kim's specialties are improving posture/alignment, Diastasis recti, and nutrition and fitness coaching for aspiring athletes or weekend warriors. She believes in whole body wellness. And not just focusing only on fitness without nutrition, hydration, sleep, stress management, personal skin care and environmental exposure.
She is warm, welcoming, a great listener, and looks forward to inspiring others with her enthusiasm for developing healthier habits.
