KATIE MILLER-LAFON

ACE Certiified Personal Trainer & Small group/Fitness coach

I understand firsthand the struggle that comes with obesity. After having my daughter in 2010, I left the hospital weighing 270 pounds. My weight loss story began here at the YMCA and continues today. My own success and seeing the success of others is how my passion for helping others began to seed. I welcome anyone looking for a place to start, or searching for a longer commitment in helping reach their goals.
