Karla Burds Antonio MA, NSCA-CPT, ISSN-SNS

Karla earned her Bachelor's degree from Drake University (yup, that's in Iowa, where their idea of fun is riding a John Deere tractor) and her Masters degree from the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center in the great state of Texas. 

Don't be fooled by Karla's Masters degree. She's definitely not a nerd. In fact, if your spidey-senses are tingling, it's because she's also one amazing athlete (i.e., nationally ranked in cycling [gravel] as well as the duathlon).

Karla lives in the Sunshine State, where if you don't get enough vitamin D, then that's so sad. She's had more experience in the fitness industry than Joey Chestnut has with his favorite hot dogs.

But seriously, Karla is a certified personal trainer and sports nutritionist. She'll motivate and educate you so that you reach your fitness goals!
