Hi! I’m Kim-lover of croissants, coffee, dogs, and running. I’m a six-time track and field All-American and National Champion turned certified personal trainer.
I grew up on my family’s 5,000 acre farm in Nebraska and learned the value of physical fitness from a young age. Years of hauling five-gallon buckets taught me that the stronger ya are, the easier life gets!
Following my collegiate running career, I accepted a coaching position at MidAmerica Nazarene University as their assistance cross country and track and field coach. It filled my cup up to pour into our athlete’s lives and their running careers. After marrying my husband, I was Michigan bound and became a certified personal trainer and Orangtheory Fitness Coach.
Sadly, our Orangetheory Fitness studio permanently closed in 2020. As a result of seeing members, and so many others, frustrated as barrier after barrier pushed back on their fitness journey, I decided, “I’ll bring the gym to them.” I created Kicking With Kim LLC to provide in-home and onsite personal training to the Grand Rapids and the surrounding areas.
It has filled my heart to be able to make fitness more accessible to the Grand Rapids Community, especially after a year that weighed heavily on us all. Through personal training I aim to create joy and confidence that instills an unwavering self-worth that is not dependent on achievements or failures. I’m here to uplift GR through fitness one client at a time!
I am so excited to be a part of the SweatNET community! Let’s get social and connect (social media handles below)- I would love to get to know you!
