Personal Best Personal Training was established in June of 2001 by Kathy Ekdahl, a certified personal trainer, certified strength and conditioning specialist, fitness instructor and yoga instructor. As the owner of a health club for 10 years, Kathy realized the tremendous benefit of one-on-one support and motivation, and launched Personal Best to provide this service to her clients.

Personal Best Personal Training offers you a greater personal experience than what you traditionally find with fitness training — an experience derived from our focus on the individual and our approach to pursuing optimal health for the whole person. We recognize the need for a multi-faceted, integrated fitness regimen and create for you a program incorporating exercise, healthy foods, and life balance. We develop our programs in collaboration with a network of health professionals that includes physicians, physical therapists, chiropractors, nutritionists, massage therapists, and personal coaches.
