Katlyn Chookagian follows a grueling training regime with multiple workout sessions planned for 5 days a week and has a workout planned for Saturday as well. Apart from improving her strength and conditioning in the gym, she also works on improving her wrestling and martial art skills.

She has also hired different trainers and coaches to work on different skills. She works with Terrific Gist for boxing and Kyle Cerminara for wrestling. Katlyn also spends considerable time with her head coaches – Mark Henry (not the famous WWE wrestler) and James Meals. She usually trains at Ricardo Almedias BJJ and Nick Catone MMA.

When it comes to nutrition, she tries her best to follow a Ketogenic diet. But, because of the demands of her training, she can’t completely leave carbs out of her diet. So, she tries to adjust her carb intake in accordance with her training demands. The more difficult and intense her training is, the more is the consumption of carbs. For her carb intake, she relies on quinoa, sweet potato, and oatmeal.
