Kathleen MacPhee

Kathleen started working with imotion fitness in September or 2010 but has been a bit hyper-active her whole life! Ask anyone who knows her, she's got a lot of energy! It would not be unusual for her to break into random acts of energy, dropping down to do some push-ups or crunches. So she likes to put that energy to good use and help motivate people into action During College (Kawartha Lakes Bible College, Peterborough ON) she would gather as many girls together as she could and do 80's workout videos in the student lounge. She was also voted most likely to start a new fitness craze!

After many years of running, rugby and a bit of boxing, she decided to take some strain off her body and give pilates a try. Of course she soon fell in love with this safe and intelligent way of working out. She moved to Toronto in December 2009 to pursue an education with STOTT PILATESTM. Six months later she was certified in Matwork, Essential & Intermediate, and Reformer, Essential & Intermediate levels. She has also completed her Group TRXTM Suspension Training certification, which she LOVES teaching!  She's excited to be expanding her knowledge and experience in the fitness industry.  She always tries to bring energy and motivation to each class and wants you to be inspired by your workouts!
