Karinne Couture (that's me) grew up in Wisconsin spending summer vacations on the beaches of Maine visiting relatives. It wasn't until 2017 that I moved to the east coast motivated to spend more time with my family and enjoy life as a Mainer. Excited for change, I set a goal for myself to explore the outdoors and maintain an active lifestyle.

With 18 years of gymnastics training, including competing as a collegiate gymnast at the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse, it was a natural decision to continue doing what I love. I coached competitive gymnastics for two seasons at my home club in the Midwest before joining the staff at Maine Academy of Gymnastics in Westbrook. 

While coaching allowed me to work with athletes, I still needed to achieve my personal goal. Working out alone can be difficult when you're use to a structured regimen or just have no idea where to start. My solution... get a four legged personal trainer! Mowgli, an energetic three-month-old puppy, rescued me and became my furrever workout partner. Since then we've hiked all around the country, taken camping trips, learned to kayak and ran in multiple 5Ks together. Mowgli loves everything about our life, except for being left home when I go to work. So the quest for a way to include Mowlgi in every aspect of my life began! What a better way than to step outside and share these adventures with others!
