Karina Inkster


Owner and head fitness nut at Ki Health & Fitness in Vancouver, BC, Karina Inkster is a certified personal trainer with a Master’s degree in Gerontology, specializing in health and aging.

Karina has been weight training, swimming, running, cycling, and power yoga-ing her way to fitness since 2003. Karina deals with a potentially life-threatening allergic condition which prohibits her from training after having eaten within 8 hours, in case a food triggers a serious allergic reaction when coupled with exercise. She also faces severe seasonal allergies and asthma that limit her activity for 5 months each year, as well as weekly allergy shots after which she can't train - again due to anaphylaxis risk. Yet, with careful planning and unwavering dedication, she trains consistently 6 days per week (even while in full time graduate school and working 3 jobs).

Karina understands the many challenges involved in maintaining an active lifestyle, and aims to live by example in overcoming her own obstacles. She helps clients to enjoy working out, and to fit regular exercise into their busy lives.

When she’s not lifting weights, swimming, running, working with clients, or writing, Karina plays Australian didgeridoo and piano, designs and creates jewelry, makes paper art with Origami and paper filigree (a.k.a. quilling), or cranks up her favourite reggae music.
