GRAND RAPIDS – Two strong women have opened Phoenix Training GR. It’s the newest personal training studio in Grand Rapids.

At the beginning of the year we introduced you Katrina Goei, owner of Trio Fitness Supply in Grand Rapids, and now she has teamed up with Sarah Kaebel for a new fitness company.

Both women struggled with the question of whether to stay at home with their families or get a job. They mastered the challenges of the pandemic and pushed on and soon found each other through their love of fitness.

Katrina provided Sarah with home fitness equipment, and it wasn’t long before they bonded and partnered as entrepreneurs.

“She really hugged me because I was going to start a business and I just loved it,” said Katrina.

Sarah discovered her love for exercise as an adult while struggling with a chronic illness.

“I didn’t know that I could have this zest for life and this confidence in strength,” said Sarah. “So that really made me want to give this to other people.”

She’s trained and exercised with her friends and now has a place to do personal training, group classes and more.

Phoenix Training GR is holding a grand opening on Saturday, September 11th from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
