Katie starts her day while her family is still sleeping. She suits up for a quick run with Rex, her Labrador. Fitness has been a passion for her since her days in high school sports. Her love of sports is what led her to Kidokinetics and spurred her into becoming a Kidokinetics Franchise Owner.
A typical day might find her creating training schedules for a new coach, calling a local school to set up a demo class, sending emails to Kidokinetics parents to remind them of next month's sessions, and preparing for a Kidokinetics birthday party event for next week.
Katie loves that her role as a Franchise Owner allows her to work from home. But her day is also filled with opportunities to get out into the community and meet with people in the local schools, religious organizations, and park programs.
Today she will head to a private preschool to teach two physical education classes—a part of her job she loves. As she leaves the school, she makes a quick call to check in with one of her new coaches who is leading a class at a local park.
She's back on the road in time to pick up her kids from school, prepare a snack and check in on their homework before dinner. Tonight she and her husband will attend their oldest's lacrosse game. Not surprisingly, both of her children have inherited her love for sports. They are proud of the fact that Katie owns a business doing what she, and the whole family, loves.
Are You Passionate About Helping Kids Lead Happier, Healthier Lives?
Our Founder, Terri Braun, is an athlete, leader, teacher, and mother of three. When she began Kidokinetics, many people asked about starting a Kidokinetics in their community. So, Terri set out to build a franchise system that would make it possible for others to share in her vision and to bring sports knowledge and fitness skills to children of all ages and abilities. Her programs keep children moving and active and are especially in-demand as schools eliminate recess, cut their P.E. programs, and kids have more screen time, at school and at home. What is magical about Kidokinetics is that we’ve made string to achieve goals an exciting experience—one that is so much fun, kids aren’t even aware of the fact that they’re learning.
