"Smile more, worry less"
Katie brings the intensity to Ascend Underground with a master’s degree in exercise science, specializing in strength and conditioning, and extensive work as a personal trainer across the DMV. Self-described as both charming and ruthless, Katie pushes her athletes to become better versions of themselves with every repetition. She motivates with her infectious energy and intense drills to music that inspires movement, pushing you to break down barriers. But don’t be scared – Katie is all about balance. She’ll be the first to recognize your efforts after a grueling set with a high five and a smile. When she’s not lifting heavy weights, she’s unwinding with friends, playing guitar, sketching, and sampling beer in the neighborhood. Living a healthy life for Katie means feeling good, and she knows how to make our athletes proud of their work, every class, every time.
