Let me introduce myself! My name is Brenda McAllister, certified health coach, certified personal trainer, and owner of Studio K by Kitchen Koach.
I grew up in Emmetsburg; a small town in Northwest Iowa. I completed two years at Iowa Lakes Community College, completing my education at Minnesota State University Mankato. In the spring of 1996, I graduated with a degree in Community Health, worksite health promotion.
I have been certified as a trainer and health coach for over 15 years combined. I have worked at the Smith Wellness Center as a personal trainer for nearly 23 years. My schedule allows me to work four days a week for the Wellness Center and keep my Fridays open to train clients one-on-one at my studio. In addition to training, I offer in-person and online health coaching.
Personal training and health coaching sessions at my studio consist of 45 minute sessions, which allows the ability to maintain the privacy of my clients. My training style focuses on body weight exercises, with free weights in moderation, and balance training, involving a strong focus of core moves.
I center my health coaching around self care, which involves everything from time management to relationships. For the convenience of the client, I am pleased to be able to offer face-to-face coaching as well as on-line coaching.
In addition to my services within my studio, my eldest daughter and I have recently taken on the role of offering information through our MOM & dot podcast, which covers a wide variety of topics in the area of health, fitness and self care. I will be posting blogs weekly that will be kept short and sweet. You will find the show notes from the podcast as well as my blog content on my website: kitchenkoach.net
I look forward to getting to know each and everyone of you! We can chat about anything health questions/concerns you may have and together, we will design a plan that will help you become the best version of you!
Until next time, take care!
