Kathi Gassert

Front Desk Supervisor

Kathi has been with AFC since 2013 working and supervising the front desk and other administrative duties. She started her career in fitness after her mother was diagnosed with cardiovascular disease at a young age, which led her to research the benefits of exercise and ultimately enter the fitness industry. Her fitness career includes positions as a Fitness Instructor, Personal Trainer, Fitness Director, and Corporate Wellness Specialist locally at the Reading Central YMCA, Carpenter Technology, and Body Zone.

One of her fondest highlights is running a half-marathon in Indianapolis with the final 1.5 miles on the Indianapolis Motor Speedway along the infamous line of bricks. While running isn’t on her to do list anymore, she still makes walking and strength training a priority.

Kathi truly enjoys the friendships and camaraderie throughout the fitness industry, in addition to encouraging and helping others achieve their fitness goals.

She has 5 adorable, very active grandsons who provide her and her husband an excellent fitness program whenever they are with them. She also loves traveling (Key West is her favorite), gardening, cooking, and baking traditional Italian foods for her family and friends.
