Samantha K.

MS, FPTI, CPT

Samantha is a born and bred New Yorker, hailing from Brooklyn. She discovered her passion for fitness during her time in the US Air Force. As a soldier, Samantha found her herself surrounded by a culture that promoted strong physical health and wellness. After the Air Force, Sam continued to explore new ways in which she could develop her physical fitness and help others. She attended Chamberlain College of Nursing and graduated with a Master's Degree in Science. Her background in medicine and preventative care fitness, along with the discipline she attained during her time in the Air Force, has prepared her to take the next step into personal training.


Samantha is CPR/AED-certified and is currently pursuing her NSCA certification. She's a recent graduate of the prestigious 600-hour Personal Training Master Course at Focus Personal Training Institute.  Samantha's number one goal as a personal trainer is to help others become better versions of themselves inside and out
