Kalika has been a lover of movement since she can remember! She started dancing at the age of three, continued through high school at a performing arts school, and moved on to receive her Bachelor's of Science in Dance Studies at the University of South Florida. She later moved to Philadelphia and continued dancing by way of burlesque in the Peek-A-Boo Revue. This love of movement translated to fitness around 2008 when Kalika started taking Sgt. Nate's Ranger Training classes 5 days per week at Washington Square Park and quickly became addicted. Not only did she physically feel stronger and faster than ever, but mentally her life changed. Having that one hour a day to just focus on her was everything. In 2011, Kalika decided she was done working behind a desk and needed to cultivate a career in the fitness world. She started teaching some outdoor ranger training classes and indoor strength training classes. Fast forward to today and you can find Kalika training all around Philly and loving every minute of it!
