Katherine Bahlburg
Owner and Head Trainer

I founded Bells and Barbells Wedding Fitness in 2014. My vision is to help and inspire women as they prepare for their most special day, their wedding! Working with so many brides has given me two incredible things: the opportunity to help change the lives of my clients for the better and follow my passion for fitness.

With over 12 years of experience operating as an athlete, coach and personal trainer, my expertise includes programming and training people of all ages, backgrounds and fitness levels. I am a stickler for technique, I won’t cycle you on a bunch of machines and I will ALWAYS take into account your personal and physical needs and/or limitations while aligning them with your desires and your goals.

I do not limit myself to one school of thought, I actively explore ALL possible avenues and fitness methodologies. I have a very functional fitness approach, I focus on exercises that relate to everyday life and will lead to the development of a strong and solid foundation. I am current and up to date on the most relevant and current exercise science and am actively continuing my education through active research, seminars and continued experience. I enjoy a challenge! Every one of my clients are happier and healthier versions of themselves because of this and the best part? That they had a little fun getting there!

In addition to working one-on-one with my clients, I am trained and currently active coaching and teaching the following: Olympic Style Lifting, Indorow, Indoor Cycling, TRX, Pre & Post-Natal, Kettle Bells, Swimming as well as extensive experience working with mobility and trigger point therapy. I truly love what I do!

I am a National Academy of Sports Medicine Certified Personal Trainer, certified in TRX Suspension Training, certified in Mobility and Trigger Point Therapy, CrossFit Level 2 and USA Weightlifting Level 1.

Fun Fact: I have a dachshund name Kylie who also serves as the official Bells and Barbells mascot!
