Kate Moore getFIT615 itskatemoore

Kate believes in the power of movement - any kind of movement. Kate rejects diets and diet culture. Kate rejects the idea of exercising to burn calories. Kate rejects the idea of hating your body because of how it looks or for what it can or can’t do. Kate believes in being kind to your body and that we are not our bodies (she believes the same things about our fears, our heartaches, our anger, and our shame). She believes that our bodies are magnificent vessels for who we actually are which is why Kate also believes in the practice of self-work and continuing growth so that we are able to show up with more and more presence in this world.

Kate started getFIT615 in March of 2014 with one goal in mind: get people to sweat more. getFIT615 was an online outlet that hosted many free events around town with the intention of giving people the opportunity to try new gyms, studios, and new ways of moving their bodies.

The opportunity arose for getFIT615 to move into a brick and mortar in our historic home on Music Row, and the doors to getFIT615 opened on October 1, 2014 at 6am.

Kate encourages students to honor their bodies and appreciate them as they are. She believes that movement is vital to our well-being and that we should move our bodies in ways that we enjoy with people we love. Kate comes from the understanding that our hatred, and lack of understanding and compassion for our bodies lies in the patriarchy, our fatphobic society, and racism. Kate centers unlearning, and growth which is why she loves hosting Heartfelt Retreats and the Leadership Retreat via the Duality Project with her co-accomplice Ruby Chandler.

Her goals are to create a space where anyone can learn to enjoy movement, to teach you to value yourself as something more than a body, and to share her passion for connection and growth.

Her love language is quality time and her core value is authentic connection. Her top 5 themes, according to StrengthsFinder are Activator, Connectedness, Harmony, Command, and Responsibility.

Kate is a Body Image Movement Global Ambassador


Kate Moore and Emma her dog

Emma

the dog - @readyforemmathing

Emma getFIT615's mascot and Kate's sidekick. She was rescued from Proverbs 12:10 on August 10, 2013 in Nashville, TN.

She is kind. She is gentle. She listens. She also likes for all of her students to know that they don't have to do anything that her mom says and instead gives them the option to play fetch with her or cuddle in the office.

Emma is a firm believer that you can always run faster. She knows that practicing steady breathing, landing lightly on all four paws, letting your tongue hang loose out the side of your mouth, and pinning your ears back in true "fast-ear" form, are running's most important tips. Emma also believes that sometimes you have to go after a squirrel and sometimes you have to lay on the cool concrete floors for a round or two.

She's been known to lick a face, steal a mat, and cuddle during a plank.

I look forward to each of your emails. Your vulnerability and courage in sharing your story makes me feel more encouraged and inspired to do the same each day. Thanks for being you - I hope you know how deeply you’ve inspired so many others!

You don’t know me but I came into one of your classes about a year ago with my wife which I believe how I ended up on your mailing list. Just wanted to let you know that you kick a lot of ass. I enjoy seeing your emails as its evident that you are really freakin passionate about getting people in community and encouraging us to love ourselves and others. I am trying to do the same in my own life. Pretty cool to get to watch someone live into what they are made for and help others do it too. You give me a lot of courage to keep on. Rock on and keep heart.

I just wanted to say that I love your emails and I find you to be one of the most inspiring women who has ever crossed my path. I think you are incredible and what you are doing is amazing. I wish I lived in Nashville so I could be part of your community but in the meantime I will follow along via newsletter. (For reference, I was living in Clarksville and in school in Nashville and took one of your classes once upon a time but have been following along ever since...). You go girl.
