ABOUT


Welcome to KimHartwell.com!

Hi there! Thank you so much for visiting my page, it’s so great to e-meet you. My name is Kim Hartwell, I’m a movement coach, yoga teacher, rock climber and avid adventurer. When I’m not teaching in class you’ll find me bouncing around this awesome planet we live on, on the rocks, in the surf or teaching on retreat.

I have a deep rooted passion for helping people to feel the very best version of themselves. When you feel confident in what your body can do, you feel confident in your day to day life. Couple that with mindfulness in your day to day life (both on and off the mat) and you’re golden. I’m a firm believer that a healthy body is a happy body. Movement is medicine.

My blog is dedicated to sharing my tips & tricks I’ve picked up along the way, with a vision of helping you with your wellness journey wherever in the world your journey takes you.

Let’s get to know each other! Please let me know your thoughts and opinions on my posts. Maybe there’s a topic you’d particularly like me to discuss? Perhaps a question you have? Please get in contact with me, I love hearing from my community! I’m here to help you 🙂

About Me

Kim the Movement Coach & Yoga Teacher

Have we met? Allow me to introduce myself…I am a model, personal trainer, fitness instructor and yoga teacher. Currently based in London I personal train clients I also teach movement classes and Vinyasa Yoga classes around London.

My training beliefs are that each and everyone of us absolutely has the ability to tone what we own. It’s my goal and my job as a trainer to make you feel that way in your training. I am also an avid believer in the teachings of yoga to enable the mind, body and soul to be at its best.

Find out more about my training here:

Although now a seasoned Londoner, I was previously a New Yorker. Having spent the best part of 3 years there from 2012-2015, I firmly set my sights on a training career path. I’ve always been super sporty and love spending time helping people. New York helped shape my focus and it was here that I put two and two together and decided on my training career. Anyone who has been to NY knows that the city is always on the front foot of fitness developments. As I do now, there I lived and breathed the health and fitness scene. There I studied for my personal training certification (NASM-CPT), fitness instructing (AFAA) and TRX qualifications. I have since qualified as a NASM Corrective Exercise Specialist and am currently studying for my Precision Nutrition Level 1. Now firmly back in London I have completely immersed myself in the incredible (and notably growing) London fitness market, and I can’t get enough of it! People are more motivated than ever to get their bodies to the best they can be. As a trainer its such a wonderful thing to be able to help them along the way.
