About Me

I'm Karen Isbister and I'm obsessed with fitness! I have a passion for helping other people become obsessed with it too. I love teaching and I love making workouts fun! Wellness is such an important part of life and I believe in an "everything in moderation" type of lifestyle. I HATE fad diets and I will never push my clients past their limits. You will not get a quick fix from me. So, if you're looking that...we will not be a good match😘

My fitness journey is pretty long, so I'll try to keep it short. It all started with Step Aerobics in the 90s, (thanks mom!), from there I gained the Freshmen 15 in college and decided I should probably do something active again. I started taking classes and fell in love with cardio kickboxing. In 2004 I got certified in Group Fitness & TurboKick. I taught for several years, completed several more certifications and eventually opened a fitness studio with my sister in Sparks, NV. 

We closed the studio in 2016 and both ended up back home in Fallon. I started teaching virtual classes in 2018 (pre-pandemic, before it was cool) and continued to do so into the quarantine period. 

Life smacked me upside the head (well, technically it boob punched me) in April 2020 when I was diagnosed with Breast Cancer. I went through 3 surgeries, 8 rounds of chemo, and 33 radiation treatments. I remained active and even taught virtually while I could. I beat the s*** outta cancer and now I'm back, stronger than ever and just completed my Cancer Exercise Specialist Certification.
