Meet Kate Decker, Owner & Director

Coach Kate realized at a young age she saw things differently. As a Track and Cross Country athlete in high school she and many of her teammates had shin splints.  She noticed they were all on the inside leg.  She suggested they start running in the opposite direction which helped.  Now she realizes the science of the gait, hip change, muscular imbalance and impact that was occurring which could not only hinder performance, but increase injuries. Today, Coach Kate uses her knowledge in exercise science and sports and movement therapy to increase athletic and functional performance while helping to reduce potential injury.

Hard work, respect, faith and fitness were etched in at an early age through her parents.  This continues today toward serving, motivating and coaching each person with whom she has the opportunity to work.
