Writer, Artist, Wellness Activist
Founder of WANT: Women Against Negative Talk

Katie Horwitch is the woman, warrior, and wellness activist behind WANT: Women Against Negative Talk, a platform that gives women tips, tools, resources, and inspiration to move forward in their lives by shifting their negative self-talk patterns. WANT was founded out of the realization that there were zero places for women to not only receive inspiration, but actual tools and resources to change their limiting negative talk patterns in a lasting way that works very personally and specifically for them.

Katie has spoken across the country, from SXSW to body-positive pageants, on the subject of self confidence and self image. She is also host of the WANTcast: The Women Against Negative Talk Podcast, where she interviews visionary women on the topics of body image, self worth, relationships, career, community, and a whole lot of pragmatic positivity.

Most recently, Katie was a founding editor of The Chalkboard Mag by Pressed Juicery, one of the leading wellness destinations online, and has been featured in countless publications such as Darling Magazine, Cameron Diaz’s The Body Book, xoJane, and more.

In addition to WANT, Katie teaches packed indoor cycling classes exclusively at Equinox locations all over Los Angeles. With a decade of teaching under her belt, Katie encourages all of her classes to “Fight For It, Not Against It,” urging each person to find what works for them and move forward fearlessly into their truest potential. Real change, in the cycle studio and in life, only comes when we’re making choices out of love, not hate – and Katie’s “spinspirational” classes are proof that finding the joy in hard work and a good challenge can break through all kinds of barriers we didn’t even know existed.

Katie is a writer, artist, and wellness activist. She lives and breathes for the expression of love, in all forms. WANT is not her passion project - it's her purpose project.
