Get to know Kate:

Kate Galliett is the woman behind The Unbreakable Body, where she helps people to become Unbreakable so they can live life as fully, deeply, and energetically as possible is the only thing Kate has ever cared about.

She’s personally experienced what it’s like to live life on the other side of the coin, where aches, pains, and a distrustful relationship with her body held her back from living life fully. And in fact, you wouldn’t have recognized her then as compared to now. But over the span of 20+ years, she’s taken what she’s learned on her own journey and taught it to others so they too can feel Unbreakable.

Kate has been a strength and fitness coach for 21 years. She earned a B.S. in Exercise Science and went on to study a variety of certifications and training, all of which helped her curate the holistic approach she takes to body care today. She recently published her first two books, Becoming Unbreakable: How To Build A Body You Love To Live In, and a companion journal, the How To Be Unbreakable Field Journal. You can find Kate’s work at www.theunbreakablebody.com and www.fitforreallife.com.

Brenton and Mitch were great to work with at the clinic, Good to get video analysis to work on straight away, practice some new drills and go home knowing what you need to work on.
