As an instructor myself, I can see she knows her stuff! Every move is detailed, informed and focused because of Kate’s expertise. Now, after achieving the HKC, combined with Kate’s instruction, I am confident I am teaching the basic Kettlebell movements correctly. Kate is tough and sweet and sincere. Can’t ask for much more from your trainer!

The Power Training session was fantastic!  In just 6 sessions (3 weeks) I feel stronger and more fit.  Although it was a group session, Jen tailored the individual workouts to target our specific goals.  It was hard work, but the sessions were also fun and never boring.  I look forward to doing another Power Session as soon as my schedule allows.

As a former military and current law enforcement professional I have been exposed to some of the finest and most professional trainers and instructors. Kate Lavanga is definitely one of the best I have had the pleasure of dealing with. Kate is one of the rare instructors who is able to appropriately tailor their instruction to the level of the trainee and not just “impart their will” on their victim. Kate is able push her trainees to get the maximum results from their efforts. I would recommend Kate Lavanga for all levels of KB instruction!

Kate is a very patient and knowledgeable instructor who has a true passion for Kettlebells. The class is well-scaled for both beginner and more advanced students and Kate spends the time to focus on each individual to give instruction on their form and technique. Her classes are fun and provide a great workout — the hour seems to fly by

Kate has been supportive, energetic, and provided me with comprehensive training. Not only does she address training, she really focuses on the client’s complete needs, including diet information. She is super convenient, especially since she comes to your house and it is amazing what you can get done with very little equipment. She is encouraging when I don’t have it in me and she follows up with email/phone support, so I never wonder what I should be doing outside of our meetings. We have been working with kettlebells and she has a huge focus on form, safety, and results. I would highly recommend Kate as a personal trainer and specifically as an RKC instructor.

After 10 years of Personal Training, I began working with Kate about 10 months ago and I feel I’ve made real progress.  Recently, I was able to do my first push-up…not bad for 67 years!  Kate pushes to to perform at my best and encourages me a lot and is an ideal trainer for older clients.

Thanks Jen for an amazing session of Power Training!  It was just what I needed to literally kick my butt back in gear after having a baby.  It forced me to make a commitment to myself and to actually keep it.  It felt exhilarating to set goals for myself and then exceed those goals:  heavier bells and chin ups!!!!  I feel so much stronger in just 3 weeks and I feel more motivated to keep up with my workouts.  The sessions were definitely a step up and I always had fun with you and the ladies…..the extra dance moves didn’t hurt either!  Thanks so much for challenging me, for celebrating my successes with me, and for all the extra time and effort you put into making me stronger and healthier!
