About this pro

I am a NASM certified personal trainer specializing in volleyball training and pre/postnatal fitness. I have over 10 years of volleyball experience, including playing on a collegiate team, coaching and refereeing. I have been training fitness for about 5 years and really focusing on pre/postnatal in the last 2. 

I train my athletes to push outside of their comfort zones so that they can reach their full potential. In each session we work on conditioning and skill work. My goal is to not only build their skills but also their confidence so that they can carry that over into everyday life.

When working with my pre/postnatal moms I personalize their fitness programs to fit them. Each one is different and has different needs. After having my third baby I wanted to take what I learned to get back in shape and help other moms do the same. Becoming a mom is transitional period for a woman. I want to help make that transition as easy as possible.

  • Karen M.

    When I was looking for a personal trainer, Karlynn's eyes are what caught my attention. She is very patient with me as I have had some back injuries that have slowed my progress. She listens to my needs and makes adjustments as she sees fit. She is super personable and has become a friend. I have been working with her for 6 months and have lost 30lbs. Working with her has also helped me mentally, decreased anxiety, decreased depression and an improved mood. Karlynn is worth every penny.

    My daughter learned so much from Coach Karlynn. I came to her because my daughter needed help with serving. Within 3 lessons my daughter was able to get the ball over the net.

    She is very patient with me and you can tell she's passionate about training.



FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

When I begin working with new students I always ask what their goals are. I then do an assessment to see where they are at and to find any weaknesses that need to be addressed. At the end of the first session we discuss what I found and create a plan to correct weaknesses and get stronger. It's not just about fixing what is wrong, I want to create habits that last for a lifetime.

How did you get started teaching?

I have been coaching since I graduated high school. My high school coach thought I would be good at it and he was right. Since then I have coached 4 teams and so many individuals. 

I decided to expand into fitness training because of my own fitness and postpartum journey. Through fitness I was able to redefine myself and figure out who I was in this new part of my life. Those experiences are what I use to train my clients. 


What types of students have you worked with?

I have worked with high school volleyball players and a few college players. Both beginners and advanced players. I always find something they can improve upon.

In fitness I have worked with older women and those who are pre/postnatal. I have also worked with those trying to recover from injury and  those who are using fitness to avoid having to take weight loss medications. 


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

Recently I was able to help my fitness client get out of a plateau. We had been steadily losing weight when right after the holidays she stopped. I believe it was tied to her depression about a back injury. Once we were able stop focussing on what she couldn't do, she started to see a change. I also made adjustments to her supplements, and meal plan. Fitness is more that just physical, it's mental too. Everything is tied together. 


What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

For someone interested in volleyball training: I would look for someone who is interested in you as a person. You want someone that is going to design a training program specifically for you. Your trainer should ask about your long term and short term goals. They may even ask how hard you want to be pushed to be the player you are invisioning. 

For someone looking for fitness training: I would look for some who is not only looking at how to keep you fit and safe but also how you are doing mentally. Postpartum depression is a real thing and often times we forget to ask how mom is doing. You want someone who can see your needs before you need them. You also want them to talk to you about how you feel. How the workout is making you feel. The trainer should adjust to your specific needs and not just focus on the problem areas but focus on the body as a whole.


What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

Students should think about why they are needing the training?

What is the driving force motivating them to seek out a trainer? 

Are their goals realistic and something that can be measured?

What will the training allow you to do?

Do you have a support system to keep you motivated?
