PASSION + PURPOSE
"And that was your warm-up!"
Keith Thompson, the Founder of KTX Fitness grew up as an obese child. In 2008, he was working as an IT professional weighing nearly 300 pounds. Frustrated with his weight, health and diet books he decided to attend a step class and loved it!
From this moment, Keith knew what his passion was. He soon after became certified as a group fitness instructor through AFAA and started teaching classes at a nationwide gym across the greater Atlanta area. While the gym was fond of Keith, management became concerned with his “nontraditional” approach to teaching. With a desire for helping to transform lives and his love for step and cycling, “KTX Fitness” was born!
Not only has KTX Fitness become a hit in class, but outside of class as well, with over a million shares on social media and multiple viral videos. People from all over the world are watching Keith’s high energy leadership over hip-hop, rhythm and blues base lines. KTX’s Cycle, Step, and Bands classes are uniquely different and literally an exercise party!
Keith is also the Founder of the “Fit for Life Foundation”, which its mission is to encourage communities to join the movement for being Fit for Life by caring for themselves physically, emotionally and spiritually. Keith has appeared and/or been featured on the Roland Martin Show, The Braxton Show, The Rickey Smiley Show, Married to Medicine, Good Morning Atlanta and The Queen Latifah Show, Men’s Health Magazine, and was named CNN’s “Best Trainer of the Year”.
With stops around the country and world, he’s held tours in Peru, Indonesia, Singapore, Hong Kong, United Kingdom, Turks & Caicos, Brazil, Nigeria, Toronto, Mongolia, Australia, Korea and Canada. Keith hosted the largest cycling class in South Korea (1,500 cyclists) in 2017. Are you ready for the KTX experience?
