Katie Prendergast

Online Strength & Nutrition Coach

I help skiers, snowboarders, and hikers get strong for their mountain adventures. I combine strength training and nutrition coaching to help clients perform their best. The best thing about the HCP Level 1 Cert was the structure — it practices what it preaches by asking you to do a little learning daily, and shows you exactly how to walk your own clients through the habit change process!

Get in touch with Katie about her coaching practice, or her HCP experience!
