About Katherine

Katherine Adamenko, MA, CHWC, RYT, CPT

I’ve been immersed in well-being, fitness, and the arts throughout my entire life. I am fascinated with the theories and applications of positive psychology and behavior change, enthralled by the positive impact of exercise on the body and mind, and passionate about performing and creative self-expression. Together, they’ve helped to cultivate what I like to call “the science and art of living.” And it’s a fundamental part of the bend burn breathe ethos.

My area of expertise is workplace well-being for multi-billion dollar companies, and now in the legal sector. It was a natural transition from my career as a personal trainer and fitness manager. It also coincided with my recovery from Bipolar II disorder. My determination to live a well-balanced and joyful life paid off. I am living testament to the very healthy habits and well-being practices I’ve been promoting every day at work for nearly a decade.

My personal story and professional experience make me uniquely qualified to help you. I posess a deep knowledge about the challenges of balancing work and home responsibilities, struggles with weight loss and motivation to exercise, and managing stress in an increasingly plugged-in world through thousands of personal training and individual and group coaching sessions. I’ve created and facilitated engaging and accessible well-being programming that has enabled thousands of working professionals to live healthier and happier lives on a global level.

As well-being manager, certified wellness coach, yoga teacher, fitness expert and accomplished performing artist, it’s my mission to empower you to live your proudest and best life.
