“After just a few sessions I realized that I am still capable of meaningful exercise to improve my health. After years of inactivity, I was feeling stiff and unable to do the things I used to do. Although I’ll never be where I was when I was (much) younger, after just a few sessions, I realized that with some regular work and some up-front coaching to start me down the right path, I can feel better physically and mentally- and not worry about walking around like a stiff old man before my time! Thanks to Kristin for coaching, pushing, and saying “I’m Sorry” when I complained about pain for gain (even though I know she didn’t really mean it).”
After 10 sessions with Kristin, I am already achieving the results I want. I look and feel stronger and I am challenged in new way. I wanted to get back muscle definition that I had lost due to a shoulder injury and I am seeing that definition. My core is stronger and my lower back pain is going away. I was at a standstill with my own workouts—not seeing results and just staying in the same place. Kristin’s professional knowledge and encouragement are helping me achieve all of my fitness goals. She encourages and challenges me in a way that make my workouts fun. Great trainer and I will keep working with her!
“Kristin is a fantastic trainer! I have been working out with her for 2 1/2 years and I plan on continuing with her forever if possible! She is knowledgeable, enthusiastic, conscientious and so encouraging. She knows an incredible amount and uses her knowledge to keep me challenged and motivated.”

“Kristin has not only helped me get back into shape post-baby but she has helped my mom come a long way. From not exercising to working out almost everyday, I have seen a huge change in my mom. I am so appreciative Kristin was able to help her get back into shape. Kristin is not only a great trainer but a wonderful friend and advisor. I am so thankful to have come to know her so well through all of our sessions together and I look forward to many, many, many more!”
“Kristin lives up to her logo. Every workout is different, individualized, and fun. Many other personal trainers do the same old thing. Kristin keeps current on the new science of exercise. Her enthusiasm is contagious. I enjoy my workouts because they are fun and meet my needs.”
“Kristin is my personal trainer. We’ve been doing strength training together since April. I enjoy working out with her (I actually really don’t enjoy exercise at all) but she makes it fun and we always do new things, which keeps it from getting boring. I wish I could work out with her more often but not enough time.”
In April of this year (2017), I was rapidly approaching 60 and hadn’t worked out on a regular basis in 15 years. I have type II diabetes am overweight and have a family history of rheumatoid arthritis. I am not as driven as I used to be and over the years have joined gyms but have not been able to stick to it on my own. I decided that it was time to try a personal trainer. I found Kristin on Thumbtack, sent her a message, and within the next two days I was scheduled to start training twice a week. At our first session, we talked about my goals, which basically was to improve strength and balance, be more active and not end up hurting myself. Kristin had me do some basic exercise and she gave me pointers on posture and basic movement. At the end of the first session, I felt like I worked out but I was not pushed so hard that I did not want to come back which was key for me.
The thing I like most is that each session is different so I am always challenged and never find it boring or repetitive. Working out with Kristin has ended being the best decision that I could have made and I am lucky that I happened to find her so quickly. Things that I could not do such as getting in and out of the bathtub, walking up and down steps without holding on to a railing, and getting up from the floor, I can do now with ease. These things may not be major accomplishments for some but they are huge milestones for me. I have never felt like Kristin pushed me too far. She consistently encourages me and it drives me to perform. She has taught and continues to teach me how to pay attention to my body and that it will tell me when I can push further or stop.
I can confidently highly recommend Kristin to anyone who is looking for an effective, energetic, diverse workout.
