Kimberly Gill

Personal Trainer & Pilates Trainer

ACSM CPT / Tribe Team Training / RYT 200 Hour / BBU Pilates Reformer

Kimberly has been an avid exerciser and health enthusiast since high school. Her first love of exercise was distance running and weight training. While living in Colorado, she was fortunate to be a part of a coached running club that included marathon and world class runners. After suffering disk issues, Kimberly was looking to heal her back along with multiple over usage injuries. Knowing that she needed to change her workouts and build a new foundation, she discovered the importance of and her passion for yoga, pilates and proper body alignment. This passion eventually led to her yoga certification and now she is working towards her pilates mat and reformer certifications through Balanced Body University. Having spent years perfecting her running and weight training, this final component of yoga and pilates resulted in a better balance for her life, as well as her profession. Kimberly feels that her knowledge of personal training, yoga and pilates enhances her value as a trainer, as it allows her to present a unique perspective and execution plan when working with clients to achieve their goals. Additionally, she is a devoted follower of proper nutrition, feeling that it is the fuel for our workouts, and that without it our bodies will suffer.
With two sons and a husband that travels for work, Kimberly understands the difficulties of finding time for exercise and nutrition, while juggling a busy home life.  When not training clients, she loves spending time with her husband, boys and walking her lovable lab.
