“It all started once I began to write down the stories of my interactions with my clients.”
WHO: Katie Kopajtic, Your Role in the Production: Writer, Actor, Producer
WHAT: “From New York City, Katie Kopajtic makes her international debut. She’s always had a love/hate relationship with personal training thanks to the entitled, bratty, bitchy, f*cking insane, totally helpless, utterly incapable clients who have stolen her heart. This show is a behind the scenes look at the luxury fitness world and the unconventional relationships that blossom within it.”
WHERE: Greenside @ Infirmary Street (Venue 236)
WHEN: 15:00 (45 min)

Is this your first time to Edinburgh?
It is my first time! Now that we are sub-20 days away, I have begun to practice diaphragmatic breathing.
Tell us about your show.
Confessions of a Personal Trainer is a show written about my survival job at a luxury fitness center in New York City – Equinox. It has one producer, one performer, and one writer (me!) Once I cobbled together a script I enlisted the help of my friend and comedy wizard Amanda Rothman to come on as director and help shape it for the international stage.
It all started once I began to write down the stories of my interactions with my clients. After workshopping it around New York City it premiered at The Tank’s Pride Fest last July. I cannot yet reveal where it will go post-Fringe, as there may be legal issues with my workplace. I am still employed under Equinox, and I am admittedly playing with fire by not censoring the company’s name.
What should your audience see at the festivals after they’ve seen your show?
SHOW UP by Peter Michael Marino. I saw it. It is incredible how he improvises a different show every night based on what the audience gives him.
