Chris Cosky (Kate Harris) is the Owner/Operator and an instructor for B-Well Nation Fitness Center. She’s been part of the B-Well Nation staff since January 2012, serving as an instructor and an assistant in marketing and promotions. Chris walked into B-Well Nation in 2010, looking for fitness classes; she found a new lifestyle and career change! Inspired by the philosophy and atmosphere of B-Well, and motivated by the physical and mental benefits of Zumba® classes, Chris earned her first Zumba Instructor certification in August of 2011.
Sharing the benefits of functional fitness and helping others achieve their wellness goals soon became her passion. By the end of 2012, Chris shifted career gears, putting her 20 years in radio broadcasting on the ”back burner” to focus on being a fitness professional. She believes the entire family benefits when moms have a healthier lifestyle. Youth classes are her favorite; for Chris, there’s no greater reward than watching kids pick up and enjoy healthy, fun, habits which they can use their entire lives!
Chris holds a B.A. degree in Journalism and Communications (1995) from Point Park College. She is nationally certified as a group exercise professional by the American Council on Exercise (ACE).
