Born and raised in Hood River, OR, Kayla Bowker is a small town girl at heart, with a desire for adventure. Kayla attended Gonzaga University where she earned a Biology degree. Kayla’s permanent residence is now Spokane, WA where she lives, works and trains.

Kayla got into triathlon as way to find herself during a rough patch in her life, “I remember riding my mom's old touring bike (with crotch rocket gears and a rack for backpacks on the back of it) in the middle of an Olympic distance race thinking, ‘this is the best thing ever.’ It allowed me to find passion, faith, and strength in myself again.” Since then, she has made it her mission to help others find that very same thing, recently through the development of her coaching business, and through the documentation of her journey in her popular blog and Instagram Where Your Feet Take You.

“I started using INFINIT three years ago and since then I have come to love everything about it. It was the only product that really allowed me to chase my dreams without having to chase a porta potty.”

INFINIT has not only played a huge factor in her success as an athlete but as coach as well because it provides an easy way for Kayla to help others nail their race day nutrition as they journey to their own finish line.
