Combining the advantages of one-on-one personal training with at-home video workouts, The Regimen will offer free training sessions on Sunday October 31 as lululemon athletica’s Studio of the Month. The training sessions, which can be modified to accommodate anyone from beginners to experienced athletes, will be led by The Regimen trainer Katie Morse.
“I developed the program to eliminate the repetition of traditional at-home workout videos. The Regimen is an online video library that allows members to determine when and where they work out and keeps members motivated through our unique rewards program. The more a member works out, the more points they earn towards Regimemorabilia like water bottles and exercise mats,” said Morse.
After 3 years of personal training through her company KTFitness, Morse developed The Regimen as an economical option for members who may not have the time or finances for a personal trainer but need the high energy and variety that personal training offers.
Morse points out that “as the days become cooler and shorter, The Regimen gives members a workout in their own home. You don’t need a lot of space or special equipment to be successful with The Regimen. It is a self-contained, comprehensive online fitness community.”
Visitors to lululemon athletica for these classes will experience The Regimen first hand at no cost; exercise mats are provided.

About Katie Morse
Before graduating from DePauw University in 2007, where she played on the soccer team, Katie Morse began training for her first marathon in the spring of her senior year. Looking toward the next stage of her life, Katie knew she would need new arenas for competition and friendship. After completing her run in St. Louis with a time of 4:14, Morse was convinced she had found a challenge to enjoy. While living in Chicago and developing a personal training business, Morse practiced for future marathons. She ran in St. Louis again in 2008 and in her local Chicago marathon, which took her past her own apartment, in 2009. Her times qualified her for the Boston Marathon, which she participated in this year.
Having proven she could compete long distance, Morse wanted a new challenge and entered the Branson half Ironman. In preparation, she completed a sprint- and an Olympic-distance triathlon. Eager to continue advancing, she tested her skills in the Racine half Ironman. She surprised herself by placing 14th in her age group. She matched that placement in Branson.
“Training for races requires intense discipline both in everyday workouts and nutrition,” Morse explains. “I work as hard as the clients I train and my experiences help make me a better athlete and trainer.” After three years of personal training through her company KTFitness, Morse has turned her knowledge and experience into a new platform, The Regimen, which provides online personal training. “Everyone benefits from guidance and coaching. To meet my race goals, I rely on support from my online training coach Nina Jack and the Chicago Blue Dolphins.”
Morse’s success with athletics and competition has driven her to develop a program that can share the positive effects of fitness and movement with people around the world. “I developed The Regimen because I want other people to enjoy moving as much as I do and I want to motivate them to move as much as possible. The Regimen eliminates excuses I’ve dealt with because it doesn’t require special equipment or a lot of space; the online video library allows for flexibility and prevents boredom; and our unique rewards program allows members to earn points toward Regimemorabilia like water bottles and exercise mats,” said Morse.
The Regimen works for people who want to train fast, efficiently, and on-the-go, but Morse also devotes time to her triathlon training by biking, swimming, and running. She looks forward to her biggest race yet, Ironman Wisconsin 2011.
Certified as a personal enhancement specialist through the National Academy of Sports Medicine, Morse graduated from DePauw University with a BA in Athletic Training. Morse is an avid runner, having completed 4 marathons, and is currently training for several Ironman competitions in 2011.
