Kim Astler

In 1996 I had the opportunity to travel to Colorado for a hiking vacation with friends. This became my motivation to get in shape. I made a commitment to myself which became life changing. I discovered self-empowerment and something I was passionate about. I want to bring to my clients this understanding of their own strength, uniqueness and the mental power they have to achieve their goals. Come as you are and we will discover this together.

my FOCUS IS WORKING WITH WOMEN WHO ARE LOOKING TO BEGIN OR EXPAND THEIR FITNESS JOURNEY AND SENIOR WHO WANT TO MAINTAIN OR IMPROVE THEIR LEVEL OF FITNESS TO LIVE LIFE FULLY.

 I want to create an individualized plan for my clients that speaks to what inspires and motivates them and to incorporate that into their training. To help clients achieve their goals I have multiple certifications in fitness training and program development, wellness coaching experience and for seniors, functional aging specialized training.

MY “WHY”

I strive to train and educate my clients to increase their self-confidence, strengthen their body and reduce stress – so that they will be stronger, healthier and more confident to live their desired life.

things i like to do

Having lived here since 1979 I am familiar with lots of local trails and enjoy hiking in the mountains. I like being outside working in my garden which remains a constant challenge! I enjoy cooking for family and friends. I will read just about anything and I look forward to family vacations at the beach.

EXPERIENCE

I have a BA in Sociology from Jacksonville University. I have worked in the fitness industry since 2005. My certifications include: certified personal trainer with American Council on Exercise (ACE) and National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM); Wellcoaches; ACE Senior Fitness and FAI (Functional Aging Institute). Red Cross CPR and AED certified.

“The advantage for me having a trainer is pushing me to do things I would not normally do when I am training on my own.  Having trained in the past with various trainers I greatly appreciate the attention to detail with Kim.  She is constantly monitoring my posture and form which helps me to avoid injury.  In the years I have trained with her she has never missed an appointment and is always happy to adjust training days to my travel schedule.”

“I have worked with Kim for several years and really appreciate her professionalism, sensitivity and creativity.  She has helped me to formulate an exercise program geared to my personal fitness goals and physical limitations and has encouraged me to achieve more than I thought possible.  Many thanks, Kim.  You are the greatest!”

One day I walked into Training Partners to get some information. I met Kim Astler, one of the trainers, and boy, was I lucky! It is now eight years later and I still workout with Kim 2-3 days a week. Kim has had a significant impact on my fitness and my overall health. Her expertise, patience, and genuine caring have all contributed to my decision to never give her up! Training with Kim is an integral part of my plan for staying strong and healthy.
