As a lifelong resident of St. Joe, Kari loves lake front activities, and recently took her passion to the water learning SUP. Crazy busy as a wife and mother of three active kids, Kari is also the varsity coach of the Lakeshore Poms Team. "Passion and energy drive both my personal life at home and professional life at Maddog 5/1”. Taking on the challenge of becoming a Maddog trainer came as a natural step. A client since 2015, Kari quickly found a familiar energy and passion in the Maddog trainers who inspired her to work harder, and she wanted more! “My passion for fitness drives me, joining the Maddog family changed my life, first as a client, now as a Trainer. Kari teaches RealRyder, Fierce 5/1, Fierce Circuit , Bike RR Barre and jumping in where ever needed! "My #1 goal as a trainer is to deliver an energetic and challenging workout every time. I want clients to feel proud of themselves when they leave, and with a desire to come back for more.”
