Chris, Assistant GM, Program Director & Personal Trainer
Chris’ journey into fitness began when she walked into a fitness center as a sedentary mother of three looking for a change. She was encouraged and mentored by her fitness instructor and personal trainer to become certified to teach, something that she had never considered. As she made changes in her lifestyle, finding the fun and empowerment in movement, she shed 55 pounds and gained confidence. She began her certifications in 2001 with a Group Exercise Certification and found her passion for fitness and helping others. Other certifications soon followed for specialties such as Indoor Cycling, Yoga, Pilates, Zumba® & Piloxing®. Chris has become an advocate for those seeking to improve themselves, drawing from her own experiences for inspiration. Chris stepped out of her comfort zone and into a martial arts studio for a Women’s Self-Defense class and ended up staying to continue training. She earned her 2nd Degree Black Belt in Kyuki-Do, has studied Judo and Jiu Jitsu, was the Strength and Conditioning coach for the studio’s MMA team and has presented many Women’s Self-Defense clinics and seminars, most notably at the 1st Lady of Wisconsin’s Wellness Weekends.
Chris believes in the effectiveness of varying your movement and finding the workouts that inspire you, work for you and motivate you. The energy of group fitness can lift you up and push you to find your power within and she is grateful to be able to share this journey with others.
