Kathrine Kunde | Fitness

Last Friday we completed our Women Empowering Women Series, where I interviewed 4 local fashion bloggers and picked their brains in the way of support, empowerment, entrepreneurship and life.  You can read all 4 interviews here, here, here and here! LOL.

This week I am honored to introduce you to my good friend Kathrine Kunde.  She is not only my friend, but has been my personal trainer in the past as well.  Over the next 4 weeks, we will be grabbing tips, tricks and very valuable pieces of information that will help all of us maximize our health.  I am so excited for you to learn more about her and more from her! Introducing Kat Kunde:

I was born and raised on an island far north on the coast of Norway. I am forever 25 years old (haha) and married to my guitar hero Jeffrey Kunde. We have two amazing toddler boys, Luca (3) and Aksel (2).

When did your passion for fitness begin and derive from?! 

My passion for fitness began when I realized over and over again how vital it was for my day: being energized after an accomplishment, the sense of confidence after overcoming procrastination, and the joy of living with a community of people who share the same passion for pursuit of whole body health. My passion for fitness is also fueled by my life goal: to win! Winning isn’t just for athletes. It’s for those who set out to reach long term goals, and achieve them. I am in a life long race with fitness, and I’ll cross the finish line first.

My certifications are in personal training (08′), Spinning (10′), TRX 13′) and Practical Yoga (16′). I’ve also instructed most formats of group fitness since starting this profession.

What is your favorite workout?! 

My favorite workout – it depends on the day because I really enjoy so many variations of training. As a rule of thumb, I listen to my body and do whatever it’s telling me for that day – some days I enjoy heavier lifting and do the deads, the squats and the back extensions until I want to die. Other days I power walk on a treadmill with some incline and finish off with Strala Yoga.

How often do you train/workout?! 

I workout every single day and it’s always a part of my schedule. I find that I enjoy it more when I don’t have to feel stressed about it or try to catch up from a day or two of being lazy. However, It does go hand in hand with carefully listening to what my body needs. I never lift heavy more than 2-3 days in a row – there will always be a day of just cardio or just stretching knitted in to ensure balance.

I will say that prehabilitation (not a spelling flaw) trumps rehabilitation any day. I never want to put my body in a place where it needs to go through rehab. I hate pain, so I preventatively strength train now in order to avoid future injury. I also prehabilitate because I carry the responsibility to reach my goals that are beyond where I’m at right now

Do you have a favorite food/meal?! 

My favorite foods are colorful vegetables and wild caught fish. I love fish and have tried them all – in all their forms of preparation (thanks to my Norwegian grandma who told us to like fish. It wasn’t an option!). I heavily rely on my husbands culinary talents for all of our meat (especially fish) preparations. You all should come to our house for dinner sometime. He’s the man.

Guys, is she amazing or what?!?! Come back next week to learn some amazing things from this QUEEN!!! As always, thank you for stopping by the blog!!!
