Katy Fortman

General Manager/Registered Dietitian
RDN/LDN
Growing up, I always loved food and cooking. I found that as a Registered Dietitian, I can combine these two loves while helping others. I packed my bags and moved from California to New England where I received my BS in Nutritional Science from UConn and completed a dietetic internship at Cornell University. Finding enjoyment in food and movement leads to happier lives and better health. As an RDN, I strive to help others make peace with food and their bodies so they can live a happier life too!

While I have been active all my life through outdoor activities including hiking, kayaking and playing Ultimate Frisbee after school, my fitness journey did not begin until after college when I was tasked with hiking up miles of mountain with 65 lbs on my back for a program. I worked with a personal trainer to help me achieve this goal and this experience opened my eyes to a whole world of muscles I never knew existed. For me, the gym transformed from an intimidating place to a positive space to help me and others achieve their wellness goals. I enjoy working with people of all ages at any stage of their fitness journey to achieve optimal wellness.

I was born in Ethiopia and raised in Los Angeles, but have made Boston my home after graduating from Boston College and falling in love with this town. I am a certified NASM & ACE personal trainer and group exercise instructor with certifications in Performance Enhancement, Corrective Exercise, TRX, Kettlebell, Livestrong, and Strength and Conditioning. I enjoy basketball, running, ping pong, and weight lifting. I believe there are no limits but the ones we place on ourselves. I have trained with all ages and body types and bring high energy to each workout.

LifeStories

James B.
Don't just exercise, train toward your goal!
I was very lucky that until age 35, I never struggled with my weight. Despite not regularly exercising or watching my diet, my weight always remained the same. Unfortunately that all changed and I began to passively gain weight. Over the next 3 years I gained 50lbs and 6 inches on my waist line. When my 38" waist pants were getting tight, I decided enough was enough, and joined the LifeStart facility at 175 W. Jackson.

I began by taking RIPPED classes, running on the Woodway, and doing some light weight training. I quickly found that I was far, far more out of shape than I realized. Being a former athlete, I blindly signed up for a 5k run that was 6 months out so that I had a tangible goal on my calendar. The next 6 months were arduous as I clawed my way back at reclaiming a baseline athleticism. I finished the 5k with a respectable time, and had lost 20lbs in the process.

But I was hooked and I wanted more. I made the mental & physical leap from merely "exercising" to "training." I did not want to simply lose weight anymore, I wanted to gain lean muscle mass and lose body fat. I started to regularly speak with the staff at my gym, about unlocking the next level of training. They helped me learn more about how diet was the key to everything. So I began tracking everything I ate and over the next year I lost another 26lbs.

Over my first 18 months at 175 W. Jackson I lost 46lbs and my body fat dropped by 15%. I also lost 6 inches off my waistline. Since then, I have changed course and am trying to gain fat-free lean mass. While I maintain a healthy dose of cardio, my emphasis is now on strength training. I've gained 8lbs of lean muscle mass back over the last 12 months with an overall 13lb weight gain and a modest increase of 1.5% of body fat. My waistline has not changed. At this point, I am no longer focused on the number on the scale as much as I am with my proportions in the mirror.

I am very thankful to the staff at 175 W. Jackson for educating me on diet and more advanced training techniques. Don't just exercise, train toward your goal!"
