Williams Lake trainer Kim Colgate wants people to get healthy and to get fit.
The British Columbia Recreation and Parks Association-registered fitness professional recently opened a new personal training studio, Reform Fitness, in Williams Lake.
“I don’t want training to be about coming in and losing weight,” Colgate said. “That’s not what I’m about. I’m about getting in there and going and getting fit. So it doesn’t matter what shape you are, what size you are, how tall, thin, whatever … injury, non-injury — the bottom line is you need to get fit, you need to get moving.
“Whether that’s with me or somebody else or a gym it doesn’t matter to me, as long as you’re moving.”
The unique thing about Reform Fitness, Colgate said, is it’s based out of her home which allows her to personalize everything.
“It’s a 400-square-foot studio,” she said. “I have TRX training [suspension training], I like doing plyometric workouts, natural body weight and core workouts.”
Colgate, who began as a trainer at Concrete Fitness in Williams Lake in 2009, said she decided to open her own training studio to be able to spend more time with her clients.
“Gyms can be intimidating, but if you can go in there and already have a plan in place then it’s not so bad,” she said. “More or less lots of people want to come to a studio for training for their own goals.”
She added studio training can be beneficial to anyone.
“It can work for anybody,” she said. “It could be someone that wants to be accountable for something, or if you just want someone to push you five days a week or if you just want someone to give you a hard workout once a month.”
