Christy started working out at 18 years old after being inspired by a lady she worked with, who was a bodybuilder. She was tired of yo-yo diets and of starving herself. After she tarted exercising she began learning about eating healthy and different workout techniques. Being fit & healthy made her feel so much better about herself & she decided she wanted to help others to feel the same as she did.
Christy joined a gym at 22 years old. After moving to a new city & changing jobs, she had gained approx 60 lbs and was more determined than ever to get it off. She dedicated herself to losing the weight the correct way and refused to gain it back. She researched different workout programs and healthy eating habits. She taught myself about being healthy. After 8 years of working full time for another company, she decided it was time to start focusing on personal training. It was the BEST career change ever made. Being a personal trainer is the most rewarding job for Christy and is her passion. She loves helping others learn about healthy eating and getting fit. Seeing clients reach their goals is an awesome feeling.
