VEGAN FITNESS & NUTRITION COACH
So, who the heck is this Karina Inkster character?
Hey there! I'm Karina, but most of our clients call me Coach K. My award-winning online programs offer vegan fitness and nutrition coaching to clients around the globe who want to reach their health goals, and keep 'em until they're 103 years old.
I’m a Certified Personal Training Specialist and Certified Online Trainer with a Master’s degree in Gerontology, specializing in health and aging. I've been vegan since 2003 (way before it was cool!) and vegetarian since 1998.
When I'm not working with clients or doing a ridiculous number of chin-ups, I perform and teach accordion, piano, and didgeridoo, or hold disco workout parties in my garage gym.
Apply to train with me and my team!
Build and stick to your health habits with next-level accountability that's way more effective than being workout buddies with your cat.
The cliché "If I can do it, so can you!" certainly rings true
I have a lot of unique barriers to training and eating the way I'd like to. I deal with a serious allergic condition that prohibits me from exercising after having eaten within 8 hours, in case a food triggers an anaphylactic allergic reaction when coupled with exercise. Oh, and I'm allergic to raw fruit, and all nuts except peanuts. As a vegan, that's a little challenging, to say the least!
However, with careful planning, I’ve worked out 6 days a week for more than 20 years – even through grad school while working 3 jobs. I’ve also learned to prepare healthy and delicious meals quickly (and even wrote a book with more than 100 of these recipes).
With this experience under my belt, I help my clients to conquer their barriers and start getting the results of their dreams.
Online coaching has helped a lot! Knowing that you see when I work out and what I eat through the apps keep me super accountable! I just noticed on the top of the latest workout that I have completed 134 workouts with you. That is unbelievable! Anyway, I have come a long way. I started being scared of the gym and not knowing what any of the equipment or exercises look like.
Being a vegetarian for four years, I was ready to make the change and become vegan, but couldn’t quite do it by myself. I Googled “vegan fitness coach” and found Karina’s website. So happy I did! Her guidance and support were exactly what I needed to commit to veganism and get back to strength training in the gym! I loved all of the workouts I was sent, and the weekly check-ins and monthly phone calls kept me accountable! I can now proudly call myself vegan and I’m stronger than ever before. Thanks Coach K!
