About Karin Yehling: Health, fitness and sports have been a staple in my life since I can remember. As a child, I played any sport that involved a ball; basketball, tennis, softball, football etc. On the playground I was always running around playing tag, hopscotch or climbing the monkey bars. I played basketball and softball thru high school. I continued on with softball, playing first at Palomar Community College. I then played Division 1 softball at Cal State Fullerton. I ended my junior year, and my college career, on the operating room table with my third shoulder surgery. This was the turning point that defined my professional life as a personal trainer. I went thru over a year of physical therapy on my shoulder. That experience led me into the field where I worked as a Physical Therapy Aide for 11 years. During this time I acquired skills and knowledge beyond what any books and classes could have taught me. I found a niche in working with people with injuries or who are trying to bridge the gap between the rehabilitation environment and the gym. In addition, I thoroughly enjoy working with the senior population as well as those who may be uncomfortable in a gym setting. I have now been a certified personal trainer since 1991. I have broadened my scope of practice by including a certification in strength and conditioning. I feel this is a good combination to include those clients who are competitive athletes or those who want to train like one. I hold 5 different training certifications; all with different philosophies. These bases of knowledge combined with the foundation of physical therapy practices, sports medicine and my own athletic involvement have given me the well-rounded philosophies to truly call myself a professional.
