Lady Katherine Women’s Fitness earns award
Lady Katherine Women’s Fitness with a touch of sass in Hudson and Eagan have been chosen as winners of the Minnesota Women’s Press annual “What Women Want” survey in the category of fitness studios. “I was totally surprised and delighted” said Lady Katherine owner, Katherine Fossler. “We are proud distributors of the free publication the Women’s Press, but I had no idea that readers were so vigorously voting for us. I am so grateful and appreciative!” The full report and survey results will be covered in a special section of the May Minnesota Women’s Press, available at Lady Katherine and other distribution sites around the area.
