We have tested exercise through personal training for years to see what works. We got rid of the split training routine and sacrificed our fitness to see what would give you the best results. We dedicated a year of training to:
Taking a bit from each modality of fitness, we have come up with K Squared Fitness. Programming that allows you to have more energy, be strong, and flexible.

Hey, I’m Katie Andres! I am a PN1 Certified Nutrition Coach and a total health/ fitness guru.
I grew up in Connecticut and moved to Tennessee with my family when I was 10 years old. As a kid, I loved to play sports, compete, and be outside. I played travel soccer and was always doing some type of activity with my older brother, Matt. Whether we were throwing the football, riding bikes, playing basketball, or just running around, we were constantly moving.
My soccer career abruptly came to an end when I was 15 after a Cardiologist discovered I have the gene for Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy, which is an inherited heart condition. However, my love for exercise, sports, and health wouldn’t allow my story to end here. I went on to receive my Bachelors Degree in Health and Physical Education from UTC, and I earned my Nutrition Certification through Precision Nutrition.
During my education and training process, one of the key lessons I have learned is that in order to be successful at something, you have to know your personal “Why”. Why do this? Why work out? Why eat healthy? Why push yourself? My brother passed away from his heart condition in 2018 and this is one of my reasons why I am so passionate about helping others reach their full health potential and discovering their “Why” behind it all.
I married Kevin in May of 2019, and we created K Squared Fitness. Kevin’s workout programs coupled with my K2 Nutrition Program help busy people find time in their schedule for healthy habits and getting really fit. We don't just preach the K2 programming, we practice it daily.
