Shaping Up –
July 13, 2018 – he gym is the perfect place to build muscle, strength, and for some, a new life. “It’s the perfect natural way for anybody trying to get better,” said Katie Kiss, who oversees a Badger Fitness location in Madison. Transforming your physique takes repetition and lots of support. Kiss will tell you changing your life isn’t so different. “I was arrested Sept. 11, 2013, on burglary charges,” she said. Addicted to heroin, Kiss felt stuck. “I wanted to have a baby. I wanted to have a family,” she said. “I wanted a normal life.” Working out got her moving again. Three years ago when she walked into Badger Fitness, staff and clients helped her find her footing.
