Karen Hilgert Moore is an enthusiastic and energetic fitness instructor committed to bringing her passion for fitness and a healthy lifestyle to others. Born in Lima, Peru, Karen developed an interest in athletics and fitness at a young age. At age 21, she visited the United States and quickly fell in love with the California Coast and established Huntington Beach as her new home. It was discovering Yoga and Pilates that helped Karen reignite her passion for the support and community of group fitness classes. When Karen had two children, she chose to focus on them for the first few years. With the demands and challenges of motherhood, she found herself experiencing depression and anxiety. She had relied on fitness as her daily dose of healthy medicine and without it, there was an important piece of herself missing. Making time for herself and her health, Karen found she managed the stress in her life much better and felt healthier and more vibrant than she had in years. Karen wanted to find balance in her life and she wanted to share the feelings of health and wellness with other moms just like her, other women and everyone seeking to look and feel better. With that she reestablished herself as a fitness professional and with her work finally aligned with her passions, Karen found the balance and wellness she sought. Karen obtained her Fitness instructor Certification through the American Fitness Aerobics Association( AFAA). She also completed a Barre and sculpt certification through BodybyLauren, PIYO, Zumba, RIPPED, Bootybarre, Treat while you train, Pop Pilates, a 200 Hour Yoga Alliance certificate, and a 200 Hour Vinyasa Yoga Certificate after teacher training at underground Yoga and Hard Yoga. Karen is Basi Pilates Graduate trained. And she also learned classical Pilates at Orange Coast College Dance Department. With a real passion for fitness comes a commitment to lifelong learning and Karen continues to learn new formats and participate in different trainings and workshops to keep her own fitness routines fresh and flexible.
