Katie Katz has worked in the fitness industry for 24 years. She earned a Bachelor's Degree in Theatre Arts and English in Secondary Education from Nazareth College, Rochester, NY, and a Master of Arts Degree in Dance & Dance Education from New York University. She has been an ACE Certified Group Fitness Instructor since 1988. In the early 80's, Katie taught numerous classes in Aerobics, Jazz, Stretching, Children's Theatre, Dance and Fitness. In 1989, she sold Katdance and moved to California with her husband, Larry, where she taught at Sierra Junior College in Roseville. In Fall of 1991 the Katz's settled in Austin, Texas where they built Kadance Family Fitness Center-a studio where Mom's got fit while kids had fun in Theatre Arts classes. In addition, Katie taught at Austin Community College where she became Adjunct Faculty for 10 years.
In 1999, her fitness focus shifted to a home-based business, known as Katdance Fitness where she incorporated the innovative Fitness by Phone® method so that she could be a "stay-at-home-mom"' to her 3 yr. old daughter.
In 2003, she became a Master Trainer for The Association of Fitness by Phone® Coaches through which she has trained others in the Fitness by Phone® Method. In 2004, she produced "Strength and Stretch", a DVD to complement her clients' training at home. She is dedicated to fitness as she believes "health is wealth", because she feels that with good health, a person can do almost anything, but without it, they are limited.
