She owns her own company
AlterNatives Fitness, founded in 2006 with a dream of one day opening an edifice with her name on the glass door by 2021. Due to the COVID-19 crises of mandated closures and being laid off from her gyms she opened her own doors, a year early, virtually! Her goal is to hire other instructors and personal trainers and use AlterNatives Fitness as an umbrella for them to use the name and resources for them to independently earn with a company to back their efforts.
In 2010, she launched Allrithyms! an evolving and growing dance program format which is Kendra's own passionate creation of a performance paced one hour trip around the globe, where you actually dance culturally based on her scientific research and years of testing. She has held Allrithyms! worshops certifying 25 instructors and plans to host more beginning in 2021, worldwide!
