Not gonna lie, it took some patience to get here.
Intentional time set aside every darn day. It took some hard work to make this coaching gig pay out 6 figures... But DAYUUUM, it feels good to be my own boss🙌🏻 Coaching has given me the ability to fulfill a lifelong desire of helping people. Coaching has met me where I am right now- A wife, a mother, a woman yearning to make a difference.
It’s allowed me to experience relationships and friendships across this country. Financially we have been able to build a legacy that will support our family’s future. It’s been a surreal journey to say the least.
But this journey doesn’t end with me. In fact, if it did I’m a failure. I’m always looking to invite other like-minded women to see what my team has to offer. A community where we lift one another up daily and strive to be the happiest and healthiest versions of ourselves. In this journey we create forever friendships.
Right now I’m looking for positive, self driven, ambitious women who are looking to make a passion for health and fitness into a business. If that’s you and you have a desire to live your best life now, while helping others then we need to talk.
Drop me a pm, or comment below and I’ll be in touch!
“Kristin, you’re selfish!” Well, if self-care and self-love is selfish, then I guess I am
Work hard, play hard- right?
I found a way to work less and play more. It’s all about being intentional with my time and being a little, well, selfish. 👉🏻Heck yeah, I work hard!
Even though I work part time hours, during that time I WERK! I don’t full around, I don’t scroll social media frivolously. I don’t chat with friends. I have business meetings. I have an agenda and I get it done. No distractions. 👉🏻Heck yeah, I work out!
Every. Dam. Day.
Why not? Part of my job is staying healthy. It’s showing other women that it is possible to be selfish for 30 minutes a day and work on your health. I get paid to work out. 👉🏻Heck yeah, I make money!
And I make GOOD MONEY.
Part of any work from home job requires discipline. I don’t care what you’re doing, I don’t care what you’re selling- you have to be disciplined. you have to treat it like a job. Not a hobby. If you work your business like a business you will get paid like a boss. If you wanna hobby, well, understand that you won’t make money.
So, are you going to be a little selfish today?
Almost forgot to give a shout out to my #100daycrew
Last night some of us celebrated HALFWAY (almost) of our 100 day to braver living journey!
I started my journey to lose weight & get healthy❤️...
I started coaching to help others...🤲🏾
I grew our tribe because every woman needs support...👏🏽
But what I’ve received in return is so much MORE!
Turns out they’ve given me accountability 🙌🏼 that I have needed...without it I wouldn’t be here! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Turns out we’ve given one another community 💝
You girls inspire & motivate me EVERYDAY!
The size and shape of your body says nothing about you as a person, or whether or not you are happy and healthy.
And yet, many of the moms I work with both online & in person come to me initially with weight loss as their main goal.
That is why I joined a gym at 18 and hired a trainer at 27. But I STILL workout today for much different reasons.
A recent client of mine commented that she has felt "fat"and has sought weight loss since puberty. She is by no means over weight BUT she has always been self-conscious about her body.
Her story strikes me as relevant here because it's one I hear so often.
If this sounds like you, consider this 👉 losing those last few pounds doesn't put a stop to the tug-of-war we play with ourselves.
Listen, it's okay to work towards some physical goal if you want to. Your body, your choice.
I lift for strength, general health, energy, AND for sexy lady muscles💃💪. What IS NOT OKAY is when we let achieving the goal determine our self-worth.
Will you feel more worthy when you lose those last 5 pounds? Will you finally be at peace with yourself when you can see your abs?
N.O. spells NO!
Deep down I think we all know that.
What is needed is a shift in mindset, not more exercise, restrictive eating & self-control.
The client I mentioned above has come a long way. She "had a complete reset" in how she views her body, stopped criticising herself for eating food she enjoys or not doing her workout. Now she enjoys being active for the activity itself, not for the potential weight loss.
And, she feels "really good now" with "no desire to change (her) body". We talked a lot about mindset around food & her body-image.
But mostly I asked her to 1. focus on how she feels physically when she eats a nutrient-dense meal & is active (whether that's lifting or walking). 2. Not to stress about eating out, enjoying a drink, or missing workouts.
It's those things that help us to stick with it long-term because then we feel good too. Energized, confident & strong inside and out.
If this makes sense to you leave me props 👊. If not, send me a DM & we can chat. Helping Mama's with this stuff is my jam 😉.
This is my girl Julie.
I love her so much💕

The other day I was talking to someone that said- I can't do what you do.
I had to laugh at that comment.
You mean you can't follow a really simple meal plan?
You can't spend 30 minutes a day exercising when you don't even have to leave your house to do it?
You can't be motivated by 280+ women working on making themselves better and pushing you to be the healthiest and best version of yourself in my virtual fit club?
I call BULLSHIT.
You see I WAS THAT GIRL many years ago.
Now my eyes are opened.
This isn't me judging 😜 but.... I see so many people daily on social media that complain about their weight.
They get personal trainers.
They go to nutritionists.
They starve themselves.
They cut out carbs and fruit.
They either don't get results or they end up gaining the weight they lost plus an additional 10 pounds.
That endless cycle of dieting or feeling like exercise is torture or living your life where food is your enemy- that all changes when you are given the proper tools and actually use them.
You may watch me working out in my stories and think... no way can I do that.
I said the same thing when I first started 4 1/2 years ago.
Yet- here I am, a former chubby girl feeling STRONG (NOT SKINNY) and loving the skin I'm in.
When you're ready--- reach out.
The only one standing in your way is you.
Get out of your way girl 😉
Enrollment for my next FIT CLUB IS OPEN!! Application is in my bio!! XOXO
Ah... The 4 levels of @target
Can you tell who had fun and who did not? LOL, such is life with daughters, I guess.
Do all y’all moms with boys get the same reaction when you go shopping with your crew?
Well, the enthusiasm level is higher when we go shopping for their specific needs. But when mommy needs something, especially the older two, want nothing to do with it🙄😖
When we get out of our own way, we can do tough things! 💪🏼.
Be willing to do more. For yourself, for others...without expectations and without exceptions. Whether it’s a cardio workout that kicked my tail this morning, my husband approaching his work, our sons’ approach to school and sports....be willing to do more. .
Challenge yourself. Do more than the minimum. Raise the bar....you are worth more than “just getting by.”
“The only difference between you and the person living the life you want is that they’re doing it. They’ve built that life and they’re living it. They’re not waiting for the right “moment”. They don’t wait for inspiration to strike or some cosmic event to force them into action. They get up and do, and they try, and they fail even before they may be “ready”. -Gary Bishop
Quote from ’UnF YOURSELF’. (Great book by the way!) You can make a change in your life. In fact, YOU are the only one who can.
It’s up to YOU.
The question is...are you willing to stop hoping for it and ready to start WORKING towards it?!🔥🔥🔥 I see you out there, I appreciate you following my story☺️, I really do!... BUT what’s keeping you from joining my team and creating your own story?? ❤️Let’s talk.
Send me a DM.
FULL SWIPE LEG WORKOUT!
Bookmark for your next workout!
Now that summer is over & the kids are back in school, I am bringing back a weekly workout post!
If you're new to my feed, I post instructional videos with cues for diastasis along with the workout 🏋️♀️ so you will know exactly what to do.
Today's workout is modified slightly from my current leg day routine, so you can do it at home with just dumbbells or kettlebell.
BUT if you have access to barbells & are comfortable using them, you can go for it on the squat & hip thrust.
Here's the workout:
Goblet Squat 4x6
• do some mobility during your rest
Hip Thrust 10, 8, 6, 12
• can ⬆️ weight on each set of you can
Anterior Leaning Lunge 3x8 / leg
• elevate front foot to make it harder
Farmers Walk, weight offset 4 x 1min
• Do 1 side on the first set then the other side, so you do 2 rounds total per side
Side Plank Dips 3 x 8 / side
• No video for this one
Honestly, this one "hurts so good" 🤪. I program routines for my clients in a style very similar to this. I don't just help with strength training either. One of my clients had this to say about working with me: "I have had a complete reset on how I view my body. I have learned to love myself more than I ever thought possible and I feel so much better in so many different aspects of my life". Comments like this make my heart swell & I feel so grateful 🙏 that I get to do this for my job. Comment below if you're going to try this one 😈 - I'd love to know what you love about it!
Talk about not giving up on yourself.
I’m not any different than the other mom sitting beside me at a practice or a game.
We ALL have those days and so much we are dealing with. We are ALL busy.
The only difference between them and me is who has their back. My peeps know I have their backs, but I also choose to have my own.
Do you want a transformation, too, or do you wanna just keep saying you do?
I haven't always approached fitness from a place of loving respect for my body.
In fact there was a point when I pushed myself constantly just because I was afraid I'd gain weight & not be able to lose it again. But it was torture! I was exhausted all the time, my cravings were unmanageable, I binged, I "worked it off" and I had zero energy.
It was the least enjoyable part of my day.
This drive came from a place of hating my body and constantly comparing my "mombod" to that other mom.
Feeling dissatisfied with your postpartum body, feeling somehow less and comparing yourself to other women, you are more likely to feel frustrated & demotivated.
Exercise is supposed to make you feel good. You deserve to feel good.
What if you view fitness as a challenge? A way to grow stronger both physically & mentally, to increase energy, confidence & resiliency. A way to learn to love your body again with every single rep.
It hasn't been easy to adopt this growth mindset, but I'm well on my way.
I love that with every rep I can feel my body getting stronger. My confidence increases because I know I'm strong & capable of challenging myself & I can handle the hard shit.
My daughters see me as strong too. They even sometimes ask me "did you lift like a beast today?" 😂. Give me a 💙 if you're ready to approach working out from a place of love for yourself.
I still have spots open this week only for a quick free strategy call to help you manipulate your food & training to reduce PMS related cravings! Comment "I'm in" below or DM me to book.
Don’t apologize for what you want, desire and need.
We don’t feel bad when we are growing up and we outgrow our pants, shirts and shoes, so don’t apologize when you outgrow a relationships, jobs, etc.
When you literally can look around and realize the parts of your life that are and are not serving you... that’s pretty powerful. You don’t have to apologize for wanting more. You deserve more and if people can’t understand that... they aren’t your people.
It’s powerful and humble to be a leader and when you need to let others lead and be the student. I AM the POWER of WHO I AM.
It might scare some. It might cause others to roll their eyes. It might inspire others and save lives. Whatever the case, I am who I am and I’m damn proud of the me that’s growing every day.
“Sometimes your prayers aren’t answered because you’re worth more than you’re asking for.” -Inky Johnson
Throughout my life I’ve wondered and pleaded “why”. A lot of things I have struggled to understand why they happened or didn’t happen. One of the biggest changes I’ve experienced over the past 3 years isn’t physical...it’s mental. It’s looking from inside of myself at the opportunities that have been given to me. It’s understanding that I am WORTH more. It’s understanding that I can ACCOMPLISH more. It’s understanding that even though I’m shy, I’m quiet, and I’m reserved...that I can literally help other CHANGE THEIR LIVES. 💜💜💜
Don’t sell yourself short. I spent most of my life thinking I wasn’t “enough” when really I was just using the wrong measurement.
Are you ready to change your outlook and lifestyle??
When I first started coaching I had 500 followers on facebook.
I didn't have a smart phone.
Instagram?....nope didn't have that either!
I had a newborn and a toddler who never slept.
My husband was never around because he was too busy with his military flying career.
I didn't have "time" to start a business.
I certainly wasn't at my goal weight.
I didn't have any sort of background in marketing or running a business being a former teacher.
We were living paycheck to paycheck and didn't really "Have the money" to start a business.
BUT one day I just made a decision that I was tired of feeling stuck and stressed over finances ALL THE TIME.
I was tired of feeling uncomfortable in my own skin and was ready to loose the baby weight.
There really isn't anything special or unique about me. Im not some super human momma over here. I don't have a sitter to watch my kids so I can get work and household things done either.
The only difference between me and you is instead of sitting back continuing to think "I could never do what she does".... I thought "WHY NOT ME?! If she can, I CAN!"
