Karen’s philosophy is much more unique than many fitness enthusiasts out there.  Karen knows how to balance life and fitness.  If you follow her on social media you find her showing fitness tips on the slopes flying down the mountain on her snowboard, shooting tips on her boat “No Mullarkey” while wake boarding and water skiing and of course in the gym itself.  She has a contagious personality combined with a sweet southern accent which will grow on you.  Her passion for fitness comes out in everything she does as she leads by example.  You will even find her challenging some poor soul to a push-up contest in the middle of a music festival, Mullarkey knows how to have fun with fitness!

You might also recognize Karen because she is a cover model and has been published in almost every major national fitness publication.  An ISSA certified personal trainer, she was just in an a national campaign ad for ISSA.  She not only is a very skilled athlete and isn’t afraid to sweat but she also knows her angles when in front of the camera.  She has also been aired nationally on television in a commercial for fitness equipment.   She is a writer and role model and continues to get published internationally when she puts her pen to paper.

Look for Karen to continue changing fitness with her unique philosophies.  Combined with the experience, knowledge and know how this gal is going to change fitness for the better.  She is a firm believer in living life to it’s fullest because life is just too darn short.  As she would say…….”YEEHAW BABY”!

Remember…….”No Excuses and that’s No Mullarkey”!
