Your AntiGravity® Instructor

Kate Rouzer

Kate has been a professional ballet dancer from 2007 and ballroom from 2019. She Is a persoanl Trainer and maintains AntiGravity® Certifications in Decompression, Aerial Yoga, and Suspension Fitness. Having taught AntiGravity® Fitness in the St. Louis area from 2013-2018, she now offers her expertise in multiple locations across the US. Kate combes her understanding of the brain and body, as a dancer, Health Coach, Personal Trainer, Owner & Certified Instructor of AntiGravity®KR Fitness, an athlete, artist, student, teacher, traveler, and entrepreneur. Her goal is to make healing and lifelong health accessible to everyone willing to challenge themselves, to desire your personal higher self, physically, mentally, emotionally, & spiritually so we may share our best with and better the world. Change is inevitable and one of the most difficult to wrap our heads around. We approach change intelligently and consciously for the most positive 2º steps toward empowerment and extraordinary lives. With you, she will begin connecting a myriad of modalities of movement and thought patterns, bringing the physical and scientific to the stage along with the mental, emotional, and spiritual into play. Her guiding approach and the Harrison Hammocks provide versatility and personalization for every flier, and this shows up in different patterns with our individual mind-body connections. The fun moments are when we rewire old habit patterns to new, improved perspective shifts and open space in the body and mind. Kate guides with clarity, safety, and playfulness so that everyone may surprise themselves. She "loves gently challenging our individual extremes allowing more play between those extremes where we find true flow." She speaks in a whole-body approach down to the myofascial connective tissue encasing our muscles and lacing throughout our bodies. We strive for flexibility, mobility, and elasticity in body and mind that may open your thoughts to energy transfer and the quantum mechanics behind the physics of the movement in space.

"I want to heal the body and allow the body to heal itself, yours and mine, by sharing the knowledge I have gained from personal experience, from other masters I constantly learn from, and the research I continuously compile. I have spent years caring for and maintaining my own body/instrument through massage therapy, stretching, strengthening, cross-training, weight lifting, rock climbing, Pilates, yoga, and many other modalities. I love offering a change in perspective and perception when I show you where the possibilities of movement in 3D space are with the assistance of AntiGravity®, including inversions and strength through length opening space in the body and the mind. When I see your face light up as soon as you achieve a movement or sequence you believed personally impossible, that is my reward because you also come to realize your possibilities are endless. We are never “perfect,” but that is the beauty; there is always something to level up and we can enjoy the process and journey of learning about ourselves and achieve what we never imagined we could." With AG®KR flexibility is not required. Willingness to enhance your current state of being and a little trust so that I may guide you is all Kate asks. The rest is play, showing up is the most difficult step.

The Whole Body Approach

Your Workout

I think cross training is important allowing our bodies to perform at the peak, in whichever direction we strive toward. For example, dancing daily with a ballet company uses so many outward rotating muscle groups, while a quick Hiit or Tabatta workout of high intensity interval training can balance out the internal, stabilizing muscles, and Yoga keeps everything lengthening away from the center mantaining my strengthened, grounded core. If you need a little motivation one day take your workout outside and bring on the vitamin D.

I enjoy bringing a realistic approach to every workout. We wake with a different body daily. Everyone has a different proportions, and the versatility of the Harrison Hammock can easily adjust to so that you can surrender the unnecessary tension in your body to the material and flow. It is weighted to hold a minimum of 1000 lbs. The H-Hammock is there for you, trust it and you can fly. I'll bring the movement, you decide how far you'll go. Remember this for you. Invest in yourself.

Your Nutrition

Everything in this photograph is organic, grass-fed/finished, and/or homemade. No matter what fitness and lifestyle you adhere to, your nutrition is what keeps you fueled and energized (or not) to achieve what you desire.

Many of the latest trends have great ideas behind them. As an athlete, Personal Trainer, and Health Coach I prefer to maintain an Anti-Inflammatory approach balancing whole plant-based nutrition, allowing versatility between a fat-burning energetic state, with some plant, wild, or grass-fed, organic protein for muscle repair, and carb-burning energetic state, adding as many organic, colorful vegetables as possible. I have found through research and practice rebalancing the percentage or eliminating grains, unfermented dairy, and sugar helps me to maintain a level microbiome while supplementing with live probiotics, herbs, and Superfoods.
Saying this every person is uniquely made and what works for you will be different from the person next to you.
I help A-type professionals create sustainable time and energy they desire for balance and happiness throughout their empowered, extraordinary lives.

Functional Medicine: Preventative Healing From the Inside Out

Your body is connected through so many different pathways that we cannot separate them. The Brain is your switchboard. Your Endocrine System regulates so many individual functions from tissue function, mood, metabolism, growth, influencing nearly all cells, organs and functions of the human body. Your gut breaks down and sends the nourishing components to allow your mitochondria to power the rest maintaining balance throughout. Gut Health is very important, as Hippocrates stated, "All disease begins in the gut," but if your spine is out of line you can bet compression on an important system is causing disfunction as well.
I find the scientific and spitirual approach to health help my body recuperate after intense exercise and daily activity. 
I make sure to see my Chiropractor, Massage Therapist, Acupuncturist and incorporate other modalities including The Rewire to regularly and sustainable maintain my physical and emotional health.
