Feature in the Portland Phoenix

We were thrilled to have Shannon Bryan from Fit Maine and the Portland Phoenix as a guest in our studio last month. Her article captures the vibe of our studio and our mission!

KUMA Fit is a “body-neutral space,” she said, meaning Kim and her coaches don’t talk about calories or getting into “beach body” shape. “We want women to feel strong and powerful in whatever body they have. That body might not change or need to change. I want people to feel empowered, whatever their size or age.”
