Instructor, FIT4MOM® Chapel Hill
Kristen (aka Krissy), originally from Maryland, moved to Carrboro with her husband, Kurt, in 2010, for her job in global health. She has a Master’s degree in Public Health and works on research studies and projects that aim to improve public health systems in low-income countries. Their son, Marek, was born in October 2011 and daughter, Greta, in January 2014.
A lifelong fan of group fitness classes, Krissy often joined her Mom at Jazzercise as a kid, taught step aerobics and weight training classes in college and taught indoor cycling classes at a gym near her job in D.C. Much of childhood and college was spent as a competitive individual and synchronized figure skater. Realizing the Olympics was not in the cards, she joined club lacrosse and water skiing teams in college for fun and friendship. An avid swimmer growing up and a love of competition got her hooked on triathlons in her mid-20s.
After becoming a full-time working parent, the years of 6 day-a-week hours-long workouts were over. A few months after the birth of her son, she joined a group fitness class at her work gym where she realized the amazing benefits of high-intensity interval training and the fun and accountability gained by working out with an awesome group of women. In a year, she felt stronger and fitter than she’d ever been. Much less partying and snacking, as well as being married to a fitness fanatic, helped too. Krissy is excited to be a part of the FIT4MOM team as a Body Back instructor in Carrboro.
