Hi, my name is Kathy Shain and I have worked as personal trainer for 16 years. I am currently working as the manager and personal trainer at snap fitness. I also have my own training company called Workouts by Kathy in Woodstock IL. In addition to training, I have worked in a hospital based stress lab for many years. I became a personal trainer/cardiac tech because I want to help others to get all the amazing benefits that exercise has to offer. My dad died of heart disease at only 50; therefore, I decided that helping others avoid this or similar fates would be my life’s goal. I myself have been committed to exercise for 30 years. I love learning as much as I can about fitness and then using this information to help myself and others. I enjoy many different activities that get me moving. Besides my regular workouts I like to hike, skate, bike, kayak, ski, and snow shoe. I am married and have one son (in college) and 3 cats (Billy, Sammy, and Suzy).
