Hi, my name is Krissy! Krystal actually – but I made all my friends and family called me Krissy as a kid and I guess I’m stuck with it now. I am a former dietitian and personal trainer turned fashion sales rep. In my spare time I love to create abstract art and sing really loudly when no one (except hubby) is listening. I am a former Pro fitness model and competition coach who traded in the spotlight 4 years ago for slower living in the country. I strive to put God first in my life and to be kind to all those I meet. I am happily married to the love of my life and have 2 amazing (and super spoiled) senior dogs.
Sometimes social media can be so one sided – only featuring posts of the best parts of our lives – and I am so guilty for that! But oh guys let me count you the struggles I’ve overcome to bring me to who I am today. Without getting too “This is Us” on you let’s just say I had a tough childhood that forced me to grow up very quick. As a result (and being a true middle child) I’ve always felt a strong desire to help others and to use my experiences in life to make me stronger.
Since then I’ve had many ups and downs. Unfortunately I stopped taking my own advice after a recent series of stressful events, one being dealing with the chronic pain and fatigue caused by fibromyalgia. This has forced me to look at my fitness goals in a whole new light and truly put my health first – mental and physical from the inside out. So guys this is me, the real vulnerable me (ok with a little help from a photo editor app). I am sharing in hopes to inspire others and to help me in my own quest for health. Thanks for following!
