Hi, I’m Kendra Gail and I want to welcome you to KGB Fitness, a community centered on strength, fitness and healthy living. I started my career as a dancer, and bring over 20 years of ballet and modern dance experience. I trained at the Grand Rapids Ballet School, Wealthy Theatre Contemporary Ballet Company, Houston Ballet and the official school of the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theatre.
By 2006, after many injuries and years of dieting, I traded in my ballet slippers and callused feet for gym shoes, medicine balls, resistance bands and free weights. In 2008 I competed in a natural bodybuilding competition in both figure and best body divisions as I transitioned into my new career as a trainer.
Fast forward nearly 10 years and I have built KGB Fitness on a solid foundation of lifestyle fitness and stress management coaching, where I work one-on-one and with groups coaching, teaching workshops, courses and classes, and leading specialized wellness retreats.
I have spent a lifetime refining my skills and expertise through continuing education and health, wellness, and fitness certification programs. As a result, I was mentioned in the Santa Monica Mirror for my HIIT style workouts in 2016, featured in Phoenix Focus Magazine in 2015 and awarded the Proclamation of the City of Jersey City issued by Mayor Steven Fulop in 2013.
Through KGB Fitness, I strive to bring a unique, motivational approach to fitness training and coaching. My mission is to inspire healthy living and strong communities while sharing health, wellness, nutrition and exclusive travel experiences with people all over.
Connect with me today and join the KGB Fitness & Wellness community for resources, support, inspiration and more!
