Katelyn Lindsley - Coach/Personal Trainer/Nutrition Coach
I am a certified nutrition and health coach. Although my education did not start out that way, I am happy I found it eventually. I earned my B.S. degree from Marian University in Forensic Science with minors in chemistry and psychology. I have been a competitive athlete my entire life. I grew up playing multiple sports and went on to play hockey on a collegiate level. Just before my senior year season ended, I sought out options that would replace that competitive drive and passion for sport. A friend of mine suggested CrossFit and that is where my journey with nutrition and fitness began. I started CrossFit in December of 2013. In The summer of 2015 I was brought on to start coaching part time at CrossFit Fond du Lac. Between that time and 2017 I dabbled in a few nutrition plans. I tried carb cycling, Paleo, and meal plan templates. It was not until June of 2017 that a friend suggest I try working with a nutrition coach. I think the rest is history.
I started taking on clients in May 2018 as something to offer to the gym members. It was not until word of mouth really started to spread that I realized that, nutrition coaching is something I’m truly passionate about. Fast forward to October of 2018 when I received my nutrition coaching certification through the Nutritional Coaching Institute which is an approved course through NASM (National Academy of Sports Medicine). In conjunction, I also have taken the Mindset Specialist Course through NCI. This course covers all things mindset related when it comes to your nutrition and how mindset can be an instrumental factor when it comes to hitting your goals. I provide guidance and support that, in combination with your hard effort, will facilitate your personal-growth, improve your mindset around food and nutrition, and ultimately empower you to instill good habits, optimize your life, and live abundantly. Together, we will devise a plan to get you from where you are to where you want to be.
