About KSA


Certified Personal Trainer. Pre & Postnatal Fitness Specialist. Fitness enthusiast, mother of two amazing kids, wife to a fabulous chef, a dog lover and avid gardener. Whether its a walk on the trails with my dog, a fast-paced game of soccer with my kids or some quality time with a barbell, I love to move! My training style uses bodyweight exercises, kettlebell training, medicine and stability balls, sandbags, resistance bands and good-old traditional dumbbells. KSA Personal Training is a reflection of me and my lifestyle but also about the Knowledge, Strength and Action that I bring to my work and share with my clients.

…Kara has made me strong. I have come so far from where I was when we started our sessions. Kara has pushed me (in a good way) further than I could have ever expected.
