Katherine Coltrin

Newport Beach, CA 92663

I founded Smart Bodies in 1991 as an independent company that provides clients with comprehensive health and fitness programming. A certified and credentialed trainer, I furnish specific conditioning programming to enhance athletic performance, increase weight loss, prevent injury, and improve posture. My specialties include athletic performance, training needs of women over forty, the mature adult, and corrective exercise training to predict and prevention injuries

The client’s education begins with what a good trainer knows and practices. I have an extensive background in many areas of health and fitness as listed in my profile. However, I believe the two most important components of a successful, life long wellness plan are CONSISTENCY and keeping it FUN. I am dedicated to providing my clients with fitness programming that incorporates the latest research and best practice methods while keeping it fun.
In 2009, to encourage my clients and others
'To Get Active', I sold my car. Currently I commute via bike, foot, or public transportation. For two years, I commuted from Pasadena to Orange County via, train, bus and bike weekly. A great experience and still love it!!!

In order to remain competitive and to improve my own physical preparedness, I utilize a personal trainer as well. What I do in the gym prepares me for the rigors and demands of competition, work, and commuting in the elements. Conditioning and strength training are the minimal prerequisites of successful performance and continued health. In addition to being a personal trainer, I run, swim, rock climb, kayak, and mountain bike in national athletic competitions.

    I am a new client of Katherine’s as my former trainer moved away. I had seen her in the gym working out with her clients and they always looked like they were having a lot of fun. When I saw one of her clients do the hula-hoop I was mesmerized and had to have her as my trainer. Katherine is great! When you are training with her you are working out but you are also learning at the same time, as well as having her complete attention. She is full of energy with an engaging personality and she makes you feel that your goals are not only important to you, but to her also. I have about 25 lbs to lose and I know that I will finally reach my goal.

    I hired Katherine to be my personal trainer to help me regain muscle strength and tone and was so impressed with the new levels of energy and endurance I gained. She is extremely knowledgeable in anatomy and body bio-mechanics, and loves to figure out what is the best route to overall health for an individual, as opposed to the generic workouts you often see in trainers.
    I highly recommend her to anyone, novice or experienced, for the journey to fitness.

    I've known katherine for roughly 15 years, as a trainer and a friend. In both capacities she is truly outstanding. For the purposes of this review, her abilities as a trainer are unsurpassed and transcend anything else available. The term "personal trainer" really doesn't do her justice. Whether your objectives are to find someone to help you with getting healthy, getting fit, getting fitter or to prepare for an particular event, Katherine is without peer.

    I was a competitive "team sport" athlete for the first part of my life and in my middle ages I set my sights on endurance athletics, first marathons, than triathlons. Katherine was instrumental in preparing me for my first marathon and triathlons and without her I would have never gone in to compete in multiple events including, without limitation, 10 Ironman triathlons. Now, after a couple of years off, as I prepare to do my my 11th Ironman, the first person -- the ONLY person -- I have turned to for training help is Katherine. No matter what your goal, you'd be wise to do the same.

    I have known Katherine for many years and I often refer to her as the woman who gave me the confidence to do the strength training that I now do every year in the off season of cycling. Katherine not only taught me the correct way to lift, she also taught me to do it with confidence and that is what has given me the ability to lift each year without injury to my maximum strength prior to starting my race season in cycling. Thank you Katherine and I hope this gives another 50+ woman the motivation to start strength training now, it never is too late!!!
