A Bit About Me
A bit about me, Katie Handyside
I have trained all over the world, London, Los Angeles, Vancouver, Seattle and now Mallorca. I have had my Personal Training Company: Katie Handyside Personal Training and Nutrition - since 2004.
I started off mobile training , then progressed to include hotels ( Reads Hotel Santa Maria ) . I then began the first Training Studio in STP Boatyard for the Super Yachts where literally thousands of yacht connected clients trained with me on a personal level and in group classes and bootcamps ( which I brought to the island from the US ) in 2004. . I have now returned to my passion of mobile personal trainer , working directly with clients : villas, hotels & on the beach - many of my clients are predominantly in the South West of Mallorca : Son Vida, Sol de Mallorca, Portals, Andratx and Santa Ponca.
I am a keen athlete myself and have done everything from 5 half 'Ironmans', numerous Olympic triathlons, sprint triathlons, duathlons, bike races and rallies, half marathons, 10 and 5 km runs, Spartan obstacle racing, army training selection, jungle trekking in Belize, canoeing, swim racing - anything and everything I can get involved in- in my free time. My work is my passion and I love to work out- Ib love to watch , read and listen to exercise and nutritional information I my spare time! I love to be in the gym, in the mountains, and by the sea ... I love adventures and new challenges - being behind weights, kettlebells and being in nature- Mallorca its the perfect training ground- a true sports mecca from road biking to sea sports.
Like most of us, a few curve balls have been thrown my way, and exercise has given me the power to overcome the struggles I have faced.
