Abby brings a holistic approach to fitness by blending together the yang elements of high-intensity strength and conditioning with the yin elements of breath work, mobility, myofascial release, and meditation. Her approach begins with building functional movement patterns, and generating forward momentum with small internal and external wins so that you can advance to your higher goals. Abby has a deep knowledge on the psychology of motivation--what makes you tick, and a knack for working with individuals to solidify consistency--what makes your habits stick. Her coaching--offered in-person and online, spans the layers of: movement, mindset, nutrition, spirituality, and connection.

WHAT PEOPLE SAY
What I like about training at Impact with Kari is that she pushes me to do things I would never be motivated to do on my own. The workouts are social and fun and challenge me past the point of what I thought I could do. Over the last three years I've seen my strength, balance and agility grow so that I can do the things that I couldn't before: I can put the 50 pound bike rack on the car by myself, and I can ride eighty miles. I can ski for a full day and not be sore the next day. When I lose my footing, I catch myself without injury. Best of all I can keep twirling my growing daughters up high in the air. Thanks, Impact!
