Real Life Fitness Stories: Meet Kristi

November 9, 2018

What is your name and what town are you from?

Kristi, Jupiter, Fla.

Who makes up your family?

Me, my husband, our 1-year-old son, and our dog.

Tell us about your struggles.

Being patient with my postpartum fitness journey while balancing the new responsibilities of motherhood with my fitness goals, my career, time with my husband, time for my workouts, cooking healthy food (for us and my son!), and just taking time for myself. 

What was the turning point that made you change the way you care for yourself?

After having a C-section, I really learned how to listen to my body. I hardly took rest days pre-baby and always pushed myself to the max during each workout. After such a major surgery, I realized I needed to take things slowly. I needed to let my body heal and ease myself back into shape, which was a challenge, but it's what my body needed. 

How have you implemented your new habits with your family?

I listened to my body, eased my way back into working out and healthy eating, and have lost all of my baby weight! It wasn't easy but I took it day by day and if I had to cut a workout short when my baby got up from his nap, so be it. At least I got something in! 

I love helping other moms on their postpartum journey and sharing my experience, tips, workouts, and more on my blog

My goal as both a personal and online trainer is to help other women gain self-confidence, achieve their goals, and feel amazing after a great sweat!
