Kay Sconci

Owner and Personal Trainer

Born and raised – A true Austinite- that’s me. In 1983 weighing 165 lbs, size 13/14 and inching my way up to an ugly size 16, I started a workout program. On a Monday evening in May, I walked into Big Steve’s Gym in South Austin and never looked back. Now 34 years later, and 25 years owning and managing BodyWise Gym, I still love what I do more than ever. I am dedicated to both my gym and my members.
My skills and specialties in fitness encompass a wide range from marathon training, triathlons, road biking to body building. I have trained all ages, from 13 to 87 in all shapes, sizes and levels of fitness. My challenge to myself is to get each client to achieve their personal goals and a few of my own goals for them.

“You don't need to be an athlete to workout, you just need to workout...”

Don Hardwick

Owner and Personal Trainer

I have been a personal trainer and group fitness instructor for the past 21 years. I graduated from The University of Texas in 1995 with a Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology. After graduation, I began working in the health and wellness industry and got my personal training certificate through American Council on Exercise. I continue to expand my knowledge of exercise with additional education and training.
I train people with all types of goals ranging from general fitness and weight loss to sport specific training. I enjoy utilizing a high-energy style of training. I incorporate both weights and functional core exercises to improve my client’s fitness. A training routine should be designed to create muscular balance as well as improve all areas of one’s fitness, including; strength, endurance, aerobic conditioning, flexibility, agility, balance and coordination. My main goal is to help each client I work with reach their individual goals and to enhance their lives through exercise and a healthy life style.

Fitness, diet and how the two work in conjunction with one another has always fascinated me. I’ve helped people not only become athletic, but also have a better quality of life. It is always my goal for you to have less doctor visits and more energy to spend time with your family and friends. Above all, it is my goal to help you develop confidence. This is my passion. This is my calling. I am extremely happy to be sharing my excitement and knowledge with you. I don’t believe in “cookie cutter” workouts or diet plans. Every individual is different. What works for one person may not work for another. What makes me different is that I practice what I preach because I truly believe in the process. My goals are achieved because of education, knowledge, and years of trial and error. I know what works and what doesn’t. I hold myself to a high standard of morals and values both professionally and personally. As a professional working for you I will give you 100% and I expect the same in return. This dedication is how we will achieve our goal. I hope to be working with you soon.
