Challenging Myself in New Ways

Krista’s goals as a fitness mentor mirror the ones she has for herself; to find happiness, and to appropriately respond to challenges. The metaphorical equivalent of finding a window to climb through, when it seems like a door has been shut, and finding a little healthy self-improvement along with your self-acceptance.

From Eating Disorder to Discovering Her Own Brand of Beautiful

Crystal had known for a long time that she wanted to get back to fitness and feeling like herself once and for all. A self-proclaimed yo-yo dieter, she was always trying to find the quickest way to get to where she wanted to be with no regard for the healthiest approach. She even went through a difficult period of time when she battled binge eating. A better approach was a must!

Transformation: Getting Rid of 'Mom Guilt'

“The biggest thing Sisters in Shape has given me is the ability to get rid of ‘mom guilt.’ SiS has empowered me to taking time for myself. The SiS community has helped me to realize that not only is it OK, but it is totally necessary. It’s also helped me to be a good role model for my family. I’ve inspired my kids to workout. They know Mom takes time to work out and they are cool with it.”
