Hello! I’m Katelyn Darkangelo, CPPC (certified pre and postnatal coach), creator of the FIGR:Postpartum postpartum fitness program and founder of FIGR. I live in Brighton, MI, married my high school sweetheart, Anthony, and became a mom Thanksgiving Day on 11/25/21 when our sweet Amelia was born!
Fitness has always been my biggest obsession. I majored in Movement/Exercise Science from the University of Michigan in 2017, then earned my Master of Management from Duke University so I could turn my passion for fitness into a real business. I created FIGR, in 2018 and it’s been our full time career since 2019. Both my husband and I train clients in person and through the FIGR app to help bring elite fitness to everyone.
When I became pregnant, I got certified as a pre & postnatal fitness coach so I could apply everything I was learning to my own pregnant and postpartum body.
After having a short and smooth labor & delivery, and a perfectly healthy baby, all after lifting weights into the last days of my pregnancy, I knew I could help others and show that working out during pregnancy is one of the most important components to a healthy pregnancy.
In addition to my online programs, I also have in-person experience training pregnant and postpartum women, and I cannot wait to continue to help more in the years to come!
