The constant dedication to provide an exciting, safe and inspiring place to achieve your fitness goals is felt by all clients, who voted Disrupt Fitness Gym the 2018 and 2019 Favorite Local Gym by NextDoor. 

Meet Our Trainers

Kathy C.

Owner and Senior Trainer


 Prior to opening Disrupt Fitness Gym, Kathy had been a leader in the fitness  industry for almost a decade. However, it wasn’t until she was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis that she decided the time had come to take it to the next level, leading to certifications in group and personal training through AFAA, as well as prenatal training.   

Having MS while being an instructor has allowed Kathy to not only push past places she'd been told she would never physically reach, but has  provided her with the gift of offering encouragement while walking through different adversities with her clients.  She loves what she does, for there is nothing better than helping others reach their goals, and watching people become stronger and healthier!

Owner and Trainer


A fitness junky since high school hockey and football, circuit training was a natural for Lance. Designing high cardio and weight training circuits for himself since his 20s, his style evolved to couple with the science advocating high intensity training as the best way to stay fit, control weight and build cardiovascular strength. 

Fast forward to 2015, Lance met Kathy (in a gym, go figure) in a circuit training class Kathy was leading. Always thinking Kathy's innovative approach to fitness was unique, Lance was thrilled when Disrupt Fitness Gym was born, and to play such an integral role in it.

Manager - Trainer


Kathryn's active lifestyle began in school, naturally transitioning to her role as captain of the Princeton crew team. After college, however, Kathryn found herself at a loss, unsure of where her love of fitness would take her. She missed the structure and the drive drawn from teammates. Not to mention the relief of being able to have someone to tell you what to do! And at that crossroad she found circuit  training. More specifically, Disrupt Fitness Gym. 

There was an instant love with how efficient the Disrupt workout is; the mix of cardio and weight training, all in-and-out in an hour! So much so that Kathryn decided to become a trainer, using her passion for the workout to help others reach their goals, and have fun while doing it!  

Kathryn is  an AFAA Certified Group Fitness Instructor.

Trainer


Before training at Disrupt Fitness Gym, Kara always had a passion for leading an active and balanced lifestyle. She enjoyed a variety of workouts prior to discovering that high intensity circuit training provided both the physical and mental benefits she was looking for. So it was no surprise when the workout at Disrupt hooked her immediately. 

In addition to the killer workouts, she fell in love with the positive and friendly  community that encourages everyone to do their absolute best and crush their fitness goals. Driven by helping others reach their fullest potential, it wasn't long before Kara elevated her passion to teaching! 

Kara is working on obtaining her AFAA Group Fitness Instructor certification.

Lindsay completed her 200 hour Yoga Alliance certification through Core Power Yoga in 2010. In 2017 she continued  her education through EnSoul Yoga, participating in their inaugural  mentor-ship program and then participating in a second 200 hour  certification in 2018. 

Her  classes incorporate a mix of physical cues, hands on adjustments and  swadhyaya (self-study); creating a fun, safe environment for students to  play. A lifelong artist  and healer, Lindsay encourages students to be present for their lives  each moment, listen to their bodies and enjoy the journey of their  personal practice – both on and off the mat.

Lindsay’s style is the perfect complement to the intense HIIT with weights and cardio training at Disrupt Fitness.
