Meet Coach Karen

Coach Karen Shopoff Rooff, Austin


Karen Shopoff Rooff is a Women’s Wellness Warrior who champions realistic approaches to living a fit and healthy life. After earning certifications as a personal trainer & perinatal fitness specialist, Karen launched Balance Personal Fitness Training in 2008. In addition to in-person fitness, wellness, and health coaching, Karen facilitates self-directed ecourses and virtual bootcamps for clients worldwide.

Coach Karen’s blog Running on Balance is known for excellent content regarding women’s health, particularly as related to the childbearing year and perimenopause. It is a trusted resource for women 35-55 seeking to find quality science-backed answers to their health questions and tips for building a realistic healthy lifestyle.

Karen is a recognized public speaker on the topics of self-care, perimenopause, and fitting in fitness to everyday life. She loves to educate and empower body-wise women to be confident self-advocates for their health and wellness.

Clients and blog readers relate to Coach Karen because her busy life as an entrepreneur, wife, and mom of three kids shows that you can have balance without having it all together. Coach Karen believes that when realistic approaches are taken, anyone can create a life with health and wellness at the center.

In her free time, Karen loves to travel to new places to run marathons and ultramarathons. But because she believes in balance, Karen is also an avid reader and backfloater (though not at the same time).

Karen Shopoff Rooff holds a variety of fitness, wellness, and health coaching certifications:

Personal Training, Perinatal Fitness Specialist, Group Exercise Specialist, Aqua Yoga Instructor, Prenatal Yoga Instructor, Women’s Wellness Coach, Aqua Yoga Specialist, Health Coach
