Legend has it that Kinsey was born and raised in the rolling isles of Milwaukee, MN (haven’t heard of it? — Steven is pretty sure it exists). She was the daughter of a peanut farmer and the infamous Raggedy Ann. Growing up in her mother’s shadow, albeit tiny shadow, was never easy for Kinsey; but as she grew she discovered there was one thing she had that her mother never would, muscles. It was then that Kinsey’s love of fitness developed and grew. She took her craft to LA where she learned teaching fitness to living breathing humans was far more rewarding than the motionless peanuts she had trained in the years prior. She got certified, and has never looked back. She loved it so much, she decided to help open this here studio!
When not teaching at HIIT House LA Kinsey can be found running in circles outside, singing with her 5 pound chihuahua Potato Chip, and writing bios that may or may not be real life.
A native to Buffalo, NY, she grew up dancing on Tremaine Dance Conventions. Madi assisted the faculty for three years while on the Tremaine Performance Program and has danced with Janet Jackson in concert. Lover of fitness and movement since she was even smaller than she is now; and when you’re in her class, you’ll love it too!
…and we found her at a bar *don’t ask*
