Katie, Founder of NBalance
How N•Balance Started
NBalance was born after years of working with individuals whose lives were out of balance. Part of my job as a Marine was to design fitness programs for the squadron. I helped struggling Marines find balance, designing a program that worked for them. It was in College where I feel in love with the cause of ending falls. I had the opportunity to work with individuals in Physical Therapy clinics and with a Parkinson’s rehab group whose lives had been effected by a decrease in balance. My heart broke when I saw their struggles. Filled with fire when I saw their desire to over come them, and an overwhelming amount of drive to find the most effective way to help them! My mission is to help everyone be able to live their most active, healthy, independent lives as long as possible!

I’ve always had a passion for helping others. Through the Marine Corps my knowledge of body control, program design, and overall wellness stood out. Which landed me in a position 4 ranks higher than my own. Designing fitness programs for the squadron down to the individual Marine.
My interest in body control, imbalances, and preventing falls by increasing balance soared when I got to work in Physical Therapy Clinics and with a Parkinson’s Boxing group. I started learning everything there was about how to decrease pain, increase balance, and optimize functional ability. Turns out there isn’t one answer! Multiple systems have beneficial aspects! So, I began combining them! Optimizing the time I had with my clients by bringing them everything they needed in one session.
I have had the pleasure of working with a wide variety of clientele. Ranging from friends, professional athletes, orthopedic injuries, post recovery, persons with Downs Syndrome, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, and the general population looking to enhance their balance. Together we created a program for them! Anyone can design a generic program. I’ve spent years learning how to design a program that is effective, enjoyable, and tailored to each client’s needs and desires.
Move Better • Feel Better • Live Better
Proper Movement is key to maintaining balance in your body. When you move correctly your body feels good. When you feel good you move more. When you move more you live better.
Over the years I noticed that the individuals who progressed the quickest were more fit, but more importantly, had a positive attitude. These observations lead me to develop the belief that there isn’t one component to wellness! In order to optimize a person’s well-being there needs to be a balance between their physical, nutritional, and mental health. My programs will not only help you increase your physical balance but offer nutritional counseling and foster a positive self-talk environment.
Vision for N•Balance
