Hi, my name is Natalie Kalmar and I’m glad your are here. Exercise has been transformative for me, both mentally & physically, and made me a much happier human being. I‘m a big believer that exercise should be something you look forward to, not dread. I started this site to help others have more fun with fitness & feel less guilt indulging in your favorite foods.

I love testing out new fitness classes & studios, and will share my learnings along the way. Check out my fitness studio reviews, that detail what make each location unique – from classes and equipment to amenities and pricing. You can think of me as own your personal gym matchmaker! If you are want to discover new places to break-a-sweat & have more fun with fitness in St. Louis, this blog is for you.

Dine with Delight

I’m not like most fitness enthusiasts you may have met… I don’t believe in diets or calorie-counting. Food sparks happiness and you shouldn’t feel guilt or shame for indulging in what you love. It’s important to find a healthy relationship between food & fitness that make you feel comfortable in your own skin. Dining out & supporting local businesses in St. Louis gives me great pleasure & I’m happy to share my favorite restaurants with you. In my restaurant reviews, I’ll detail what makes each eatery splurge-worthy, including what to eat, the scene + fun facts about each restaurant.   If you are looking for delicious places to dine out or grab a tasty treat in St. Louis, than this blog is right for you! Also, be sure to follow me on Instagram, where I detail a lot of my favorite restaurant finds.


I hope this blog inspires you to find new ways to have fun with fitness, enjoy food & be kind to yourself.
