Karis Loewen

Meet Karis Loewen, the visionary force behind The WRKT, transforming the fitness landscape in Columbia since she opened her first studio on Sunnyside Drive in Forest Acres in March 2019. With an infectious ambition, Karis has now expanded The WRKT to four thriving locations. 

What sets her apart is not just the numbers but the vibrant community she’s nurtured — where instructors are valued collaborators, clients are cherished, and joy is the essence of every Pilates experience. Karis’ commitment to inclusivity echoes through The WRKT, making it a place where everybody feels at home. 

As we step into 2024, brace yourself for exciting news — a new location is on the horizon, a testament to Karis’ unwavering dedication to creating fitness spaces that inspire, celebrate, and, most importantly, are fun.
