Hello everyone and welcome to Get Fit St. Louis and my 1st blog post ever! My name is Susan Karleskint. I am the owner and sole trainer for Get Fit St. Louis. I have always had a passion for fitness. Always playing sports...basketball, softball, soccer, figure skating and so on. After pursuing a degree in Graphic Design I came to the realization that fitness is what I wanted to be doing with my life. I've always loved to work out and talk about it and share it with others. After a long conversation with friends I decided to go for it. I was around 28 and changed paths. We just had our first child and I went back to the books to study for my Personal Trainer Certification. It was hard but I loved every minute of it. Within that time I worked in a couple gyms, followed amazing trainers and I have taken the most amazing workshops to continue to learn. After working for others I knew I wanted to be my own boss. I wanted to be in control of how I ran my business and train in what I believed so passionately. So while pregnant with my 2nd child, I decided to create Get Fit St. Louis. When I began as a trainer I had 3 people in a park doing yoga. Thanks to my amazing friends at Roeser Home Remodeling, I was given a beautiful space to train. Very quickly I went from 3 ppl to 9ppl per class. Since being given a beautiful space I decided to put out a Groupon of my own. Wow! Then I went from 3ppl, 9ppl to then having full classes and going on a wait. Groupon is a great deal for the consumer. It has also been great for me. Many clients I received from groupon have been with me now for 2 or 3 years. They have told their friends and family. Many classes concist of sisters, mothers and daughters, aunts, cousins, husbands and so on. I have and continue to be truly blessed to love my job, love my clients and love continuing to learn to better serve them. So join us for a great workout and a great time and take an hour for yourself today. First class is Free for new clients along with new clients specials. Please don't hesitate to contact me with any questions.
