What you'll do

We'll ease ourselves in with some introductions… I’ll share my experience of two Olympic Games, including showing some personal behind-the-scenes photos, and talk about what life is like as a full-time elite athlete.

We'll then get moving- I’m also a fully-qualified personal trainer, and will take you through a warm-up, upper-body strength movements, our main HIIT workout and then finish with a short section of core work and a cool-down.

The HIIT workout has been designed to be more interactive than your usual online programme! I’ll be right there with you working hard. I'll include movements I do in my own programme, developing both strength and cardio capacity, so you get a real insight into a rower’s training!

I offer options for everything we do, so this session is suitable for all levels. Whether you're an avid gym goer or more comfortable on the couch, there's a variation on each exercise to help bring out your best.

To finish, I'll answer any questions you might have, from training and fitness, to performance psychology, to what it's like to sit on the start-line of an Olympic final and life in the Olympic Village.

This Experience is great for team-building. Book a private experience for your group. Is your group larger than my listed max group size for private groups? Send me a message.

I'm Kate, an Olympic champion and two-time Olympian (London 2012 & Rio 2016).

In addition to my Olympic achievements, I’m also a multiple World and European medallist, and have broken several world record times. Since retiring from rowing one year ago, I've been sharing my passion for sport through coaching and mentoring younger athletes, and have also worked with numerous businesses and universities, providing talks and insight on performance psychology and the lessons I've learned.

I actually never used to be fit and I hated PE at school! Then I found rowing, and it took me down a path that I'd have never expected. In addition to being an Olympian, I’m also a personal trainer. I love creating classes that are fun, relaxed and energizing. My goal is that people come away from my experiences feeling better than when they came in.

This is perhaps one of the best HIIT experience that I have ever tried. I love that Kat shared her personal stories and guided me through her professional background, to adjusted the best way for me to workout. I highly recommend this airbnb experience, and get to know Kat more!

It was such an amazing experience! Katherine is so kind and makes you feel welcomed. Her stories are interesting and she provides really good encouragement and advice during the workout. Even if you haven’t worked out in a while she provides different modifications to support different levels of ability. I would recommend this experience 100%.

I booked this for a friend’s birthday and it was fantastic! Katherine was very kind and welcoming. She showed us her gold medal and told us all about her training and the Olympics before diving into the HIIT class. This was truly a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for a great price! It made for a really memorable birthday gift.

An absolutely brilliant experience. An inspirational start with a talk about Kat's incredible achievements and experiences as an athlete. Kat os so friendly and welcomes questions. Followed by a challenging workout (in a good way to push yourself) but has lots of adaptations for beginners too. Once in a lifetime to speak to an actual Olympian, you can't miss it, you won't regret it!

I really enjoyed this experience. We started the session off with a little chat and explanation about what would follow. The HIIT session itself was challenging and the team element gave it the feeling of an actual group session. Katherine also gave guidance on how to do the exercises during the session. We finished off with a warm down and Q&A. Overall a very fun and unique experience I would definitely recommend!

Katherine was the best, she connected with us before the class started, gave up an explanation of what the experience would look like and even gave us time at the end to chat some more. She provided us some great insight from career growth, mental health all the way to favorite snacks. Thank you Katherine for guiding us and kicking our asses.
