Kimberly Root

Kimberly on a mission to break stereotypes and inspire others to do the things they have always dreamed of doing. Rather than dwelling on all the reasons why you can’t do something, try concentrating on the things that you CAN do to reach your goals.

Kimberly is an American College of Sports Medicine Certified Exercise Physiologist with a Bachelor’s Degree in Exercise Science from Youngstown State University in Youngstown, Ohio. She started breaking stereotypes when she was in high school. Kimberly was a varsity cheerleader and wrestler, lettering in both in the same year. She is a martial artist and a beauty queen, holding a variety of awards and titles. Kimberly became involved with martial arts in 1993, currently holding a second degree Black Belt in American Kenpo and a blue belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. She moved to Las Vegas, Nevada in 2008 to work with mixed martial artists. She trained under strength and conditioning expert Norm Turner (trainer to former UFC Champ Forrest Griffin and Muay Thai superstar Kevin Ross, just to name a couple). Kimberly lived in Las Vegas for 5 years and served as the Wellness Supervisor at one of the largest spas in the world and gained certifications as a YogaFit Level 2 Instructor, a Licensed Zumba Instructor, a RealRyder Spin Instructor, a Precision Nutrition Level 1 Coach and a Training for Warriors Level 1 Instructor.

In an effort to prove that anything is possible with hard work, she entered a world completely different from martial arts, the world of pageantry, starting with a Slovak Heritage Pageant in loving memory of her mother and grandmother. She won the title of Miss Czech Slovak Nevada and also became the 1st Runner Up at the National pageant. She took part in the Ms. US Globe Pageant to help raise money for a nonprofit organization that provides recovery, education and prevention programs to women and children who were the victims of abuse and earned the title of Ms. Nevada Globe 2011, placing in the top 15 in the US pageant. She was also awarded with the 2011 Ms. Globe Motivator of the Year Award. Kimberly continued on into the international pageant circuit and became Miss Slovakia USA Multiverse 2012, competing in the Dominican Republic and placing in the Top 5 at the Miss Multiverse International Pageant. She was also awarded the title of Miss Social Media.

She proved that being a female, or a martial arts, or a beauty queen doesn’t have to define you. You can be so many things! Kimberly loves to travel and lived in Thailand for 6 months teaching yoga, Zumba, cardio kickboxing, and spin at PhuketFit and helping with strength and conditioning at Phuket Top Team. She’s currently back in Northeast Ohio and eager to motivate and share what she’s learned along the way!
