Christina is fantastic! I highly recommend this studio for any ability level. I enjoy the pace, accessibility of exercises, and overall welcoming and inclusive attitude.
Christina's journey in the health and fitness industry started back in 1988, well actually earlier when she helped coach track and field and took her Ski & Swim Instuctor Certifictions at 16. With a diverse background and a loyal following she walks the talk and truly believes everyone can find balance and unlock a more powerful, confident version of themselves. Combining personal fitness training, small group training, yoga and outdoor pursuits you will get a little bit of everything working with Christina.
She studied at UVic in Human Performance & Nutritional Biochemistry, and was interested in both Phys Ed and the Dietician program there. Starting with nutritional coaching to help people sort out and customize the vast amount of information out there, then adding fitness training and yoga to keep people motivated, accountable, safe and consistent. More than your typical trainer, Christina has travelled far and wide to collect over 70 certifications. I like to learn from the best, and will be a student of anything fitness, yoga and nutrition forever.
Christina can also relate to those with injuries. She has found that the combination of strength training with yoga has been the best way to heal and prevent further injury after recovering from two car accidents. I truly get it, most of us are busy, we have past injuries, we are Moms of busy kids and then on top of everything we work. We all need to move daily, eat healhty nourishing foods; and we also need fitness to be smart, efficient and Fun.
When she is not teaching or training you will find Christina hiking or snow-shoeing the trails with her dog Ninja. It's the best stress reduction ever. A natural healthy eater, she keeps things simple, whole foods, plant based....but you should also know that it may be her that ate the last of the ice-cream!
She believes movement is for everyone and everybody. Boutique fitness allows me to see and get to know each and every one of you. I have been blessed to witness many transformations, it is truly a gift to be a part of. Christina plans to keep living a Vibrant life, teaching and training well into her 90's.
