Hi, I’m Katja, but you can call me Kat.. 🙂 I’m a N.A.S.M Certified Personal Fitness Trainer and Nutritional Specialist and have been a Fitness Trainer for 6 years. I am the owner of No More Excuses, LLC and registered as a personal trainer in the State of Georgia.
In 2003 my daughter was born which even after a year left me with some extra weight. I tried eating less and running more but I just didn’t see the results I was hoping for. I actually thought that I had tried everything and accepted the fact that my body had changed after giving birth. Over the next seven years I still maintained my membership at the fitness club but with similar, non-mention-worthy results.
As my daughter got older and started school I was able to refocus some extra time on myself and I started researching and learning about the relationship between healthy diet/ nutrition and exercise. I realized I needed a plan.
I started organizing my daily workouts and watched what I eat. Over the following 12 months I was able to lose 50 pounds and become stronger than I ever have been, physically and mentally.
With the encouragement of my trainer and my increasing passion for fitness and health in general I signed up with NASM and received my personal trainer certification in February 2013 followed by my fitness nutritional specialist certification in May 2015, a group personal training specialist certification in May 2017 and a weight loss specialist certification in May 2019.
My goal is to educate people about fitness and healthy lifestyle choices, making them aware of how even the smallest changes in their diet and daily routines can result in great health benefits.
