Sam became a certified personal trainer and nutritionist as a way of giving back to Beauty Hunters after working out with many of the previous trainers. She is a Technical Writer and Document Control Specialist for a living, and works out or plays with her dog for fun.
“I found Beauty Hunters when I was at a low point in my life, escaping a toxic relationship literally 2 days after the first class I attended. The support, encouragement, and camaraderie that I found here helped me to find the determination to change my mentality about fitness to focus on getting stronger and more capable. The confidence that this brings has carried over into every aspect of my life. Now, as I continue to seek personal improvement, I am ecstatic to have the chance to inspire others to join me in living the best possible life and became a trainer to share that joy. Life is meant to be enjoyed. There is no more time to waste on hating yourself or your body when you are capable of so much more.”
Katherine is a graduate of Tusculum University, in Greenville TN, where she received a bachelor’s in Human Growth and Learning. She is also a certified personal trainer. She grew up loving and competing in sports. She is a former Nationally Qualified Figure Competitor, not quite sure if she is ready to retire from competing all together. By day she works for a Brand Marketing Sign Company and by night is a group fitness trainer for a local franchised, nationally known Boot Camp. Katherine found Beauty Hunters about a year after it was founded and was drawn in because there was no pressure to be anything other than yourself. She was going through the love hate relationship with her body image that a lot of women deal with but very rarely share. Beauty Hunters has always been the place where women of any age or athletic ability can come workout and get that push to keep going without any judgement. She loves that Sarah’s faith is so transparent and seeing that makes her strive to share more about how much Jesus loves us and how you are more than worth it.
“Beauty Hunters is more than a free workout, it’s also about the bonds and friendships you make along the way. There are literally no excuses if you really want to GET IT, GET IT! Katherine knew this was her way of giving back. Her favorite part of every week is getting to teach the 1 st class that starts the week off right. DON’T STOP!”
