Katherine Rose embodies the FITBODY Lifestyle…
Cold Spring, Kentucky
I have always been a competitor my entire life, growing up I was a competitive power tumbler winning the Regional, State and National level competitions. In the eighth grade my best friend talked this little country girl into trying out for cheerleading. In 8th grade my squad became National Champions and I was given the opportunity to perform at the half time performance of the Pro Bowl in Honolulu Hawaii. This is where my competitive edge came from, I wanted more. I went on to continue cheering throughout high school and found a spot on the NKU Cheerleading team. This was the best and worst thing that happened to me. While there I LOVED it, but I also had 3 surgeries in the four years I was there. I knew my competitiveness would pull me through the injuries to compete at Nationals every year. After my senior year and graduating into the real world, I felt lost without competition in my life. I am forever grateful for someone recommending I contact Julie Lohre, it was the best decision yet!

In my opinion change can be both physically and mentally and I can honestly say that I have grown tremendously in both areas. The major aspect that helped me make this change was Julie Lohre, she was there for me every step of the way and monitoring my success. I knew that every week and a half I would be either sending pictures and measurements, I didn’t want to let her down.
What do you love most about fitness?
I LOVE that I can challenge myself to be better every single day. Rep for rep I push myself to be better than I was yesterday. Fitness is something that you have to have self-discipline, self-motivated and the courage to step out of your comfort zone. This is when the magic happens.
What motivates you to maintain a healthy lifestyle?
Others! It was awesome to walk off the stage at my last show and someone call me by name, they introduced themselves as a fan of mine. How cool is that? I get to do something that I LOVE and motivate others to be the best that they can be! Not to mention I have two nieces that expect me to stay as strong as possible, my five year old niece says “You will always be able to pick me up no matter how big I am, because you are SO strong!”
What is a typical training session like for you?
My training is intense, but I enjoy every moment of it. My training currently involves supersets and 3-5 minutes of cardio in between the superset exercises. Also some cardio sessions outside of the supersets (before or after training). Some exercise I alternate heavy weight, or slow reps.

Worst part of working with Julie Lohre
There is not one thing I would change about Julie! She is wonderful! People say that there are angels here one earth, she is one of them!
"Getting started with a healthy lifestyle can be hard, people will try and bring you down. Several times you will hear them say “Just one bite, it won’t hurt.” Keep your head strong, and your eyes on the prize. They will be asking you how you did it later."Katharine Rose
Beverly International Ultimate Muscle Protein is my favorite protein powder! All flavors! I have tried several different types and nothing compares to Beverly International. My favorite part of UMP is that you don’t have to just drink it! You can mix it with your oats, make protein pancakes (my favorite), brownies, etc!
I love being able to maintain such a great lifestyle by being healthy!Katharine Rose
