Hey there! My name is Katya Anastazia Souchitski, but I usually go by Kat! I am excited to share with you a little bit more about myself and the story behind KAS ACTIVE. Everyone has their own journey in life. But mine all started when I quit Rhythmic Gymnastics at age 17. I reached many achievements in my career, including the title of State Championship, Junior Olympic Team member, and even participating in the Special World Olympics opening/closing ceremony. My experience as a gymnast has been a stepping stone to my fitness training career. Upon discovering the power behind fitness, I saw my future as a trainer and immediately started to brainstorm ideas in order to develop my own training program.

I received my B.S. in Molecular and Cell Biology from the University of California, Merced. This degree has allowed me to expand my knowledge about the human body which has helped me in my career as a trainer. Additionally, this degree sparked an interest in nutrition for me. As a survivor of Anorexia Nervosa, I am aware of various struggles that many individuals might struggle with on a daily basis. One major struggle is body dysmorphia because when it comes to fitness, it is easy to compare yourself to others and fall into that mindset of not feeling “pretty enough”. Anorexia Nervosa is, unfortunately, a common eating disorder seen among individuals. For this reason, I decided to advocate for the eating disorder community and publish the book, No One Can Fight But Me, my story discussing the struggles ad challenges I faced with Anorexia.
I always had a passion for social media. Sharing fitness videos that others can follow along with at home and advocating for the eating disorder community allowed me to create a health and wellness profile. But I wanted to take my social media to a more professional level which is when I found another passion for entrepreneurship. In May of 2020, I partnered up with Modern Nature, a luxury beauty and wellness brand that builds beautiful lives. Why you might ask? Firstly, taking care of our body with non-toxic products is so important and fueling our body with the vitamins and nutrients it needs is the key to a healthy lifestyle. With that said, I was very drawn to this company’s products – mainly due to the science and technology of all the products and the scientific advisory board of medical doctors. Overall, the variety of wellness and beauty care is everything one needs to live a beautiful life!
So how does entrepreneurship come into play? I always had a drive for leading others to elevate their lifestyle, discover their true potential, and not be scared to take risks. Throughout my partnership with Modern Nature, I have learned about marketing, product knowledge, and the base of building a business online. I wanted for others to be able to experience this partnership so I developed AMF.social. AMF stands for Affirmation + Manifestation = Freedom. This formula is not the only key to building a business but is also applied to any other aspect of life. Anyone is able to join AMF.social. To learn more about this program, click here.
It took me a long time to figure out what my true purpose in life is. But I always followed my gut feeling and believed in myself. So what is KAS ACTIVE and what can you get out of it. Well, it depends! KAS ACTIVE is a fitness training program, a place to shop for high-end vegan beauty and wellness products, and even an opportunity to have access to a mentorship program that allows you to level up your social media presence. I hope that my story inspires you and I look forward to hearing from you soon!
