I have been working at Live Fit Now for two years. In 2017,  I received a Bachelor’s degree at USC Upstate in Exercise Science and a minor in Biology, and I participated in Division I track and field for 4 years.

I have been a Personal Trainer for 12 years, most recently working with seniors who have Parkinson's Disease or are recovering from knee surgery or various back issues.  I also work as a Med Tech for an assisted living company.  I love competing in races, bench contests and obstacle races.  I believe in staying active! 

Loree Bishop 

Yoga Instructor 

RYT - 200

I completed my 200 hour yoga teacher training certification with Lisa Muehlenbein at Zen Studios in 2015. Since that time, I've taught vinyasa / flow style yoga and have continued learning about meditation and safe, effective movement studying with Jules Mitchell, Michael Johnson, and Dawn Yager. I'm grateful for the opportunity to bring the benefits of yoga to the bodies and minds of Live Fit Now clients. I'm a Spartanburg native and graduate of Converse College. I'm passionate about my work at Piedmont Care, Inc. and in my spare time I enjoy reading, journaling, traveling and seeing live music. 

Kim Smith Butler


Personal Trainer

Pilates Instructor

I opened Live Fit Now eight years ago with a goal of sharing my passion for health and wellness with clients of all ages and abilities.   My current focus is Pilates training in the LFN Reformer studio.  I have the opportunity to challenge clients looking for their next level of fitness and to help others returning to exercise after rehab.  I also love teaching Pilates Mat classes, indoor cycling and HIIT.  I'm a member of Todd Durkin's Mastermind practice development program and find inspiration working with studio owners across the country.  Many of my clients have been with me for over 10 years, allowing our time together to evolve beyond just a 'workout'.
