Frequently Asked Questions

Can I join Kaia at any time?

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: Jodi Vanderpool

At work I often discuss projects and initiatives by confidently reminding our teams that, “Structure + Process = Outcomes”. Professionally I know how to focus on a goal or desired outcome, but always realize that without a structure and process, that goal will not be realized. For some reason in my personal life I kept leaving out an important part of that equation. I knew the personal outcome that I wanted and frankly I thought that based on my years of involvement in sports and general athletics that I also knew the process that would get me there. I knew what I wanted but alone I just wasn’t getting there. What I was leaving out completely was the Structure and honestly the Process was not fully being realized on my own either. For me Kaia was the answer to providing me with the Structure; fully enhancing the Process; and now has allowed me to realize the Results that I wanted. The muscle confusion and variety that is offered makes each workout interesting and has changed me physically and mentally.

I have been inspired by the individuals who attend Kaia and truly want the best for each member, pushing them forward and encouraging them along the way. The Kaia coaches know how to connect with and meet everyone at the level and place that they are, physically and mentally. It is amazing to me how much knowing that there is a support team in the Kaia group really has impacted me and propelled me forward. I am confident that I will continue to achieve and reach my desired outcomes now that Kaia has given me the valuable Structure and Process!
