Frequently Asked Questions

What is Kaia FIT?

Kaia is a year-round fitness program catered to women. We provide personal training in a group atmosphere to make you feel safe and comfortable at any level. It is designed to give women of all ages and abilities the best workouts and nutritional support with the greatest results. Kaia is a lifestyle.

Designed by women, for women, Kaia’s workouts target your whole body. Our whole-body approach to fitness and healthy living will make you leaner, stronger, more flexible, and give you the energy to be more effective in your daily life. We keep your body constantly guessing (which means more calories burned!) by never repeating a workout.

In order to accommodate all women, each Kaia exercise has three levels of difficulty:

Balance: low-impact (no weight, no jumping)
Strength: mid-impact (add weight and speed)
Kaia: high-impact (add weight, speed, and impact)

Why Kaia FIT?

What separates Kaia FIT from other fitness programs is our combination of intense muscle confusion workouts, constant support from our certified fitness professionals, nutritional guidance, and of course, our sense of community.

Intense muscle confusion workouts
We researched full-body sports (gymnastics, running, weight lifting, etc.) and developed a program that molds your body into the athlete you are intended to be.

Certified fitness professionals
Our coaches provide personal training in a group setting and ensure that you feel safe and comfortable at any level. We hold high standards for our Kaia Coaches. All coaches are required to be Kaia Certified, first aid and CPR certified, and hold a nationally-recognized personal training certification.

Nutritional guidance
Kaia coaches also target health and weight loss from a nutritional standpoint. We give you the tools to build a healthy relationship with food. The Kaia coaches also teach you all about healthy food options and how to eat in a lean and green way.

What does BRIK mean?

A BRIK workout refers to the stacking of two disciplines during the same workout, one after the other with minimal to no interruption in between. As you switch modes of exercise, your body needs to effectively and efficiently prepare for the next demand while recovering from the previous exercise demand. Your heart rate increases significantly as your body shifts the blood flow from the muscles of the first exercise to the demands of the muscles of the next.

What are the workouts like and what can I expect?

The great thing about Kaia workouts is you never know what to expect. As our clients lead busy lives and have a limited amount of time for exercise, we must be creative in our workouts, keeping your mind engaged and your body guessing. Our coaches never repeat workouts, since routine is the number one enemy of muscle growth and weight loss. Our workouts ensure you don't get stuck in a comfort zone. Kaia classes are stimulating and fun. They leave you exhausted but exhilarated. You will find yourself excited for the next class!

Will I see results?

You will feel results immediately, but you will most likely see your results within two or three weeks of starting the program. You will:

  • Lose weight - about one-two pounds a week, without putting yourself on the latest fad diet
  • Tone your muscles
  • Look your best and feel even better
  • Feel more energetic
  • See real results that last
  • Make great friends and have fun!

What if I can’t keep up?

You can do it! Our workouts are designed for women of all ages and abilities, from first-timers to seasoned athletes. We tailor our exercises to ensure you are not left behind. We will help you find your fitness level and we respect your limits. All of our coaches are well-versed in Kaia modifications and will help you in any way possible.

We have three levels of exertion:

  • Balance - The low impact version of an exercise. This is for anyone who is new to Kaia, recovering from an injury or who feels it’s appropriate. Typical heart rate zone: Anywhere from 120-140. Low impact does not mean doggin’ it!
  • Strength - To make any exercise harder or more intense, you need to add speed or weight. Strength is the aerobic phase of our workouts. Typical heart rate zone: 130-160.
  • Kaia - The highest level of exertion. To reach this phase you are working hard, adding speed, intensity or weight. Typical heart rate zone: 160-190.

What equipment should I bring?

  • Wear comfortable workout clothes and a pair of quality running shoes.
  • A bottle of water.
  • A big SMILE!

You are welcome to bring your own yoga mat.

Testimonials

Kaia FIT Boise: Megan

"Thank you to our Kaia girl (5 a.m.), Kylen, for sharing this beautiful story!! I am sure that my weight loss story reads like a lot of women. Simply put- I had been tired of being overweight for a long time. I would put my heart and soul into everything I tried…for about two weeks. Then I would put the weight I lost back on, plus another twenty pounds. And that is how I got to be well over 200 pounds. One night I had enough. I was tired of living in my body, and honestly I wasn’t doing much living at all. Whether I wanted to admit it or not my weight was holding me back from a lot. I decided I wanted to be fit by my 25th birthday. That year, I worked hard with a trainer at a local gym. And I lost 50 pounds. But then summer rolled around, I sort of fell off the band wagon and before I knew it..I was fifteen pounds heavier. After all my hard work! I could not believe how easy it was to break the cycle I had put the better part of my year into.

And thats when I finally decided to listen to my ‘crazy’ friend Leslie who kept going on and and on about this amazing Kaia bootcamp. I could not imagine waking up that early. I remember asking her about ten times if she REALLY woke up at 4 am. But I also saw the changes in Leslie. How happy she was, how toned she had become. She was a walking advertisement to join. So I finally did. Walking in that first morning I was completely surprised by how welcoming and lovely everyone was. I never felt judged. I felt constantly encouraged. I left that workout and knew I was addicted. I’ve done three FIT sessions now, and I did my first BRIK this winter and thats when I really started to see a difference. By the end of BRIK, I had lost about three inches EVERYWHERE, and a total of 18 pounds. I had been stuck forever at the same weight, totally in a plateau, and Kaia changed that for me. Kaia has changed EVERYTHING for me. I used to not look in the mirror- now I do. I used to tell myself I can’t- now I tell myself I can. I’ve done things I never thought I could, like participate in two 5ks, hold a Kaia level plank, and probably, most importantly, love myself. None of this would have really been possible without Kaia. Kaia changed the way I eat, changed the way I workout, and changed the way I saw myself. I’ve dropped about 70 pounds now, four pants sizes, and two shirt sizes. I can shop at regular department stores now. I haven’t been able to do that since I was in high school (trust me- that was a LONG time ago). In fact, I called my mom practically in tears last week from an H&M dressing room because things fit! In a few weeks time, I am leaving for Portalnd, Oregon to go to school. Something I probably never would have had the guts to do in my old body. It represents a huge step for me in my life- but I remember after joining Kaia I almost wish I had not applied at all, because I didn’t want to leave my newfound family, the women that gave me the chance to discover I could, and I can. I know with the tools Kaia has given me, I can keep myself in shape. I’m not scared. But I will miss waking up at the crack of dawn to hang out with a ton of beautiful women who can kick my ass- who wouldn’t miss that? Thank you so much to all my Kaia sisters. To really feel like a Kaia girl has been the best gift ever.’ Kylen, you are truly an inspiration and you will be missed at Kaia! Good luck and come visit us."
