TORI KARSTEN

       Tori has a diverse background playing sports from field hockey, soccer to volleyball, swimming, softball and more. She grew up in the suburbs of Chicago; River Forest, as a well-rounded athlete and took her talents and dream to play at a high level, out East to the University of Delaware on a Division I Field Hockey scholarship.

       Tori graduated with a Bachelors Degree in Marketing and after graduation she started her professional career first in radio ad sales and then into an account executive role in a larger advertising agency.

       While re-discovering that her passion still remained within the health and fitness field, specifically training and helping others to accomplish their own specific goals, Tori left the Advertising scene. She founded a Chicago branch of a Health and Wellness initiative where she launched Wellness Fairs, fruit deliveries and most recognized, two 5k races. She made her passion a priority, focusing her energy and time into passing NASM's Certified Personal Training and ACE's Certified Group Fitness courses. 
       She has been full time in the Fitness Industry ever since and continues to develop individualized plans for all her private clients while creating effective group workouts within your classes.
