About Kitty Coy
My name is Kitty Coy and I created You be You, a Health and Wellness Coaching company! I started You be You to provide support and guidance to people who are looking to optimize their health or who are struggling to reach their health goals. Over my lifetime, people and the media have told me that I need to look a certain way and I am sick of it. My goal is to help people that don’t fit into the standard fitness mold. People who don’t want to go to the gym because they can’t stand the meat heads. People who might be intimidated by super ripped personal trainers or health coaches. Working towards your health goals can be tough on your own, which is why I support you every step on the way! Because I want everyone to know how easy it is to improve their health and live the best life possible!
I’ve been a nerd my entire life. I have been fascinated by the human body since I was young. I graduated from CU Boulder with bachelor’s degrees in Integrative Physiology and Psychology with a minor in Neuroscience. It doesn’t get much nerdier than that. After college I worked as a researcher doing drug development testing for the FDA and worked in a hospital to bring cutting edge research procedures to people who needed them. My passion for nutrition and body physiology has inspired me to be a health and wellness nerd — I’ve spent thousands of hours doing research into health and wellness topics and countless hours practicing and implementing the techniques I’ve learned.
I am deeply passionate about cooking delicious food and helping people! I am a Colorado native and enjoy camping. I love all types of games, especially board games and card strategy games. My hobbies are crafting tiny hats, making jewelry, and welding. I am obsessed with octopuses and my house has been described as a “tentacle museum.” I LOVE art and am active in the local Burning Man community. I like building art cars and created an art car called the Octopussy, a gigantic cat head with octopus tentacles mounted on a Geo Metro! I also run the Denver Art Car Collective, a group of artists that support each other in the creation of art cars.
