Another young, healthy athlete who was fully vaccinated has died, allegedly of heart issues.

A 31-yr-old fully vaccinated fitness trainer has died while taking a nap; her family suspects her heart stopped while she was sleeping.

Katie Novak, a St. Louis Park, Minnesota resident and mother of a 7-year-old boy, is being remembered by her co-workers, customers, and boss as a positive person who had an impact on those whose lives she touched.

The GoFundMe site where friends and family are raising money for the father of their son, with permission from her parents, reads:

Katie Novak was a beloved mother, daughter, sibling, family member, friend, trainer, co-worker, and active contributor to the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP).

She passed away unexpectedly from heart-related issues on January 18, 2022.


This memorial fund is primarily to support future education needs for our seven-year-old son, Nolan. Its secondary purpose is to leave a donation in her name to AFSP. The fund is set up by Chris Kuker, Nolan’s father, and Katie’s close friend, with full input and permission from her parents and family.

Katie found her passion and a great deal of fulfillment working as a Lead Trainer at the Burn Boot Camp franchise in Maple Grove, MN. She touched so many lives with her friendship, positivity, and light. We will remember all of the lessons she taught us, whether they be about healing, persevering, striving for goals, or humor.

COVID World, a website that reports news about the CCP virus that doesn’t appear in the mainstream media, reports:

Katie, who was a Lead Trainer at the Burn Boot Camp franchise in Maple Grove, Minnesota, took a nap on January 18th and never woke up. Her 7-year-old son, Nolan, and co-parent, Chris Kuker, recently tested positive for COVID-19. However, Katie had tested negative and was fully vaccinated.

The Star Tribune reports – Her family expects her heart stopped while she was napping.

Her father, Barry Novak, said about her sudden passing:

“It was an absolute shock.”

Since Katie’s death, her parents have heard from dozens of people — both from the gym and from the broader community — who were affected by her positive energy.

“We didn’t fully understand her impact until her death, but we’ve been given this bittersweet gift of understanding an aspect of our daughter that we only had a glimpse of.”

One woman at the gym remembered how Katie came up to her after a workout class and welcomed her back to the gym after a period of time when she was too down to attend. The woman, who was depressed and struggling, confided in Katie, who met her gaze and said:

“I’ve been there too, and we’ll get through it together.”

That woman told Katie’s parents that their daughter saved her life.

Katie was an expert at encouraging people to push themselves and stay motivated.

How many more “fully-vaccinated” healthy athletes need to die suddenly of “heart issues” before an investigation is launched into the potential relationship between vaccinated, seemingly healthy athletes and serious heart issues?
