Hi! I’m Heesun Kim.

Y2Kxtraining is Yoga To Kickboxing Cross Training. Yoga & Kickboxing embodies the two extremes of my personality.

In our training, we focus on sustainable weight loss, strength training, core & balance, flexibility & mobility, injury prevention, post-rehab fitness, as well as nutrition.

My clients range from early 20s to late 70s. What my clients and I have in common is we work hard, but are also down-to-earth and easy-going. I am best described as a nurturing & compassionate yet straight-forward, no fuss trainer. I love efficiency and am result-driven.

For the past 20 years, I repeatedly experimented with working out and eating (or not eating) as I struggled with weight and body image since my teenage years. Joined my first gym in 2000 and hated it – only to learn years later that the gym and the yoga mat was the very thing that kept my sanity in check and my type-A persona leveled.

In 2011, I started by teaching part-time.

In 2013, I left the 9-to-5 rat-race.

I followed my passion to discover life unfolding in front of my eyes.
