About Kate

kate-deeringFor over 20 years Kate Deering has been involved in the health and fitness industry helping men and women of all ages achieve optimal health and wellness. Kate’s practice is based on a holistic approach to health and wellness by looking at the entirety of a person’s well-being.  A person’s well-being includes diet, stress, exercise, posture, sleep, digestion, hormones, mind-set and lifestyle.  Kate believes maintaining all of these key components are vital to a person’s overall health and happiness.  Her expertise is based on certifications as a CHEK Exercise Coach, CHEK Holistic Lifestyle Coach 2, Olympic Lifting Coach, Resistive-Stretching Practitioner and Certified Nutritional Consultant.

Kate, an athlete her entire life, has played competitive tennis, participated in dozens of running races, including the Las Vegas Marathon, hiked the Grand Canyon rim-to-rim and Mt. Whitney, the highest peak in the continental U.S.  She is currently training in her second Pedal the Cause 100 mile Cycling event to raise money for cancer research.  Her personal accomplishments along with her education and training molded her approach to training her clients from a fitness-dominated perspective.  

In 2010, Kate realized her years of focus on solely physically training her body began to break down.  She hit a physical and emotional wall.  Everything she believed, practiced and espoused was no longer working. This is when Kate was introduced to the work of Dr. Ray Peat, Dr. Broda Barnes, Dr. Constance Martin, Dr. Han Selye, Dr. Uffe Ravnskov, Josh Rubin, Danny Roddy and many others.

Within one year, after spending significant time reading, researching and personal experimentation, Kate healed her body and her metabolism.  Along the way, her entire belief system about what constituted “true health” shifted 180 degrees from what she had been practicing during her almost 20 years in this industry.  Good health was a no longer defined by how many hours she could work out, how much will-power she had, or how low her body fat could get. Good health is now defined by a lack of injuries and sickness, great sleep, good digestion, healthy skin and hair, lean muscle and a warm body, overall happiness and emotional well being.

Kate knows and understands that the nutritional, mental, physical and spiritual components of a person’s life must act synergistically…one is not more important than the other.

Kate Deering Fitness

I have been sitting in front of my computer trying to think of something insightful to write, and my mind keeps going blank...

It is hard to wrap my head around all the chaos and insanity in the world right now... Usually, I can see some light at the end of the tunnel, but right now, it is challenging to see anything at all.

My heart aches for the family and friends of George Floyd. I can not even imagine what it must feel like to watch the murder of a family member or friend, especially if the murder is by someone whose job was to protect them.

My heart aches for all the black men, women and children who had/have to endure racial injustice, prejudice, fear, and the trauma of dealing with the ignorance, hate and racism of so many people.

My heart aches for ALL the HONORABLE police officers, who have dedicated their lives to protecting the people of the United States and are having hammers, hatches, bricks, and rocks thrown at them.

My heart aches for the cities and communities that were already being ripped at the seams, from COVID-19, are now being burned, looted and destroyed.

My heart aches for those who have lost a loved one in the past 3-4 months and was unable to hug them, sit with them, hold their hand or even have a funeral to say goodbye.

My heart aches for those who have passed in a hospital all alone and scared.

My heart aches when I see people trying to express their frustrations, fears and thoughts and instead of others trying to understand their point of view, they are quick to jump down their throat and find fault in their comments.

As I sit here at my computer, I want to find something comforting to say, something that can ease some of the pain, anger, fear and frustration that is so prevalent in the world right now.

Yet, all I can say, is I feel you. I want to sit with you, hold you, and BE with you. I want you to feel your feelings AND I will HOLD that space WITH you.

I do not want to try to change how anyone is feeling right now, I just want you to feel whatever the F^#k you are feeling.

If you want to share your feelings, please do. If you want to argue, move along.
