Kitty.jpg

Kirsten Amann (better known to friends and clients as Kitty) is an ACE-certified personal trainer, registered yoga teacher, and certified reiki practitioner. Kitty found her way to fitness in her mid-twenties though yoga. What began as a break from the treadmill developed into a weekly habit and a deep fascination with the mind body-connection.

The quest to tackle the most physically challenging yoga asanas inevitably led Kitty back to the gym. Previously intimidated by the weight room, she discovered strength training as the key to transforming her practice.

Bubbly. Peaceful. Happy. Experienced.

With 15 years of experience in the food and beverage industry, most recently as brand ambassador for a popular liquor brand, Kitty is accustomed to the challenge of balancing work, play, and wellness. She strives to meet clients where they are and help them make small changes that amount to big results.

Whether teaching yogis to balance, conditioning with cardio, or helping weightlifters learn to improve their results with flexibility, she incorporates multiple modalitites to create well-rounded programs for her clients. Kitty is thrilled to be part of the esteemed team at Saldare.

I have trained with Susan for almost a year now and have nothing but good things to say. I was referred by my close friend who lost 40lbs over a few months of training with her through working out and a serious diet overhaul. She is incredibly flexible and schedules appointments week to week with me around my hectic schedule. Her availability in her studio, at my home or outside ( weather permitting) keeps the training interesting. Our workouts vary based on my current needs and she always finds a way to make it fun. I highly recommend her whether you are making fitness goals or just maintaining your health.

When I met Alan, I was the type of gym goer that would get motivated and go for a week, only to find excuses the following week and end up quitting training as soon as I had begun. In only a few minutes of conversation with Alan, I knew he could help tackle that obstacle and help me accomplish my fitness goals. Alan is an absolute professional who is not only knowledgeable about what he teaches, but also passionate about what he teaches. He truly listens to your questions and concerns and works with you to develop a plan that will help you get the level of fitness and body you have always wanted. Alan created a workout plan that was tailored for me – it was built to fit into my schedule, highlighted the types of exercise I was comfortable with at the gym, and pushed me and educated me about exercises that I never thought I would be able to do. I’ve seen measurable improvements in weight loss, my physique, and strength.

PERSONAL TRAINER

Kayla.Photo.jpg

Kayla Mehr is Boston’s premier Pre and Postnatal Specialist!

Kayla grew up in an Italian family that used food as a way to come together and socialize. Although she had danced, strength trained, and ran cross country in school, she always struggled with her weight. It wasn’t until college that Kayla decided it was time to make changes in her life. After learning “smarter” ways of working out rather than “harder” and learning more about nutrition, Kayla lost 30 pounds and that is where her passion for health and fitness began.

After college, Kayla moved to Los Angeles, California to pursue a career in Fitness. She began as a Personal Trainer at Equinox in West Hollywood, CA. While she was there, Kayla was hired to train Mickey Rourke during preparation for his role in The Wrestler, as well as other celebrities. She also gained numerous certifications, competed and won her first Bikini Competition and participated in a Triathlon. After a few years, Kayla took her experience and moved back East to be closer to her family.

She has been a Personal Trainer for over 10 years and pre and postnatal certified for 5. She’s worked with tons of expecting moms and when it came time for her to become pregnant she took a harder look at all the conflicting and confusing information out there about working out while pregnant. She dove in and did extensive research and even interviewed doctors, nutritionists and moms to fully understand how working out effects the mom and growing baby. Kayla has created a tried and true pre & postnatal training program that is safe, effective and enjoyable. Not only will she keep you strong throughout pregnancy and prepare you for the marathon of motherhood, but she will help you recover quickly and safely! She also has a huge community in Boston of pre/postnatal recourses and other moms who can help support you every step of the way.

Kayla gave birth to her first son in June 2018. Four and a half months postpartum from a C section, without any dieting, she is back to her pre-bably weight and although very tired and sleep deprived, she’s feeling stronger than she could imagine!

Jennifer is amazing. I worked with her for about a year, and the workouts we did were fun and very effective. After about 6 months of working with her, a friend of mine said (after seeing me in a bikini) “wow, it's like you have a different body.” Not only is training with her effective, but she engages you in such a manner that it feels like you hardly worked. For sure, the next day your muscles inform you that you did the work, but Jennifer is so easy-going and personable that it's like you were hanging out with a friend, who happens to also kick you into shape!

Jonathan has always had a love for physical activity.  Throughout his life he has been involved in athletics such as football, wrestling (and informally) martial arts, tennis, snowboarding and equestrianism to name a few.  This propensity for exercise, along with his formal certifications, gives him the ability to master many traditional and new training techniques.  Jonathan’s background has also given him a profound interest in the human anatomy, the study of movement and how to rehabilitate and prevent imbalance and injury.  It is the rewarding experience of being able to diagnose and fix a person’s issues that gives Jonathan the motivation to continue to work with people and build relationships.

My most important task as a specialty trainer is to keep people healthy. No matter what your goal is – injury treatment or prevention, lose weight, increase cardio, muscle tone or hypertrophy - my job is to ensure that every individual learns the proper methods to stay healthy and that they are able to perform for the rest of their lives.
