ACE Professional Profile

Karen  Poole


Karen Poole



Hi! My name is Karen Poole and I am a distance runner and fitness enthusiast currently living in Portland, OR. I grew up in Salem, Oregon and went on to attend Walla Walla University where I led the collegiate basketball team. A two year starter, Captain and MVP, I earned a degree in Business and Marketing in 2009. My passion for advancing sports and training did not end in college and I have since received my Road Runner's Club of America Running Coach Certification and ACE Personal Trainer and Group Fitness Instructor Certification. With a history of teaching swimming lessons, lifeguarding, working in gyms and fitness facilities and as an assistant basketball coach, I have been surrounded by fitness professionals and resources for over 15 years. I love helping others get into shape and develop a passion for healthy living through fitness training.
