Enough from us…Kristen take it away!

1. What made you decide to join FIT CHICKS?

I decided to join FIT CHICKS after many failed attempts at the gym. I needed to find something that would challenge me and hold me responsible for my own success. I needed to find someone to push me. I started searching for boot camps in the city and stumbled upon FIT CHICKS. After doing some research, reading the testimonials and  watching some videos, it seemed to be exactly what I was looking for. Group setting with other ladies with the same goals, a chick sergeant who would keep me motivated, with a little tough love. I signed up and haven’t looked back, one of the best decision I made was to invest in my health and fitness.

2. What is the biggest change you have seen in your life since joining FIT CHICKS? How has fitness and nutrition changed your life for the better?

The biggest change has been in my emotional health. It is nice to look in the mirror and be able to love who is looking back at you. FIT CHICKS has given me the tools to change my lifestyle and be the happiest and healthiest me I can be. I have become stronger, helped me kick unhealthy habits, I’m more motivated, I feel more capable, I have more confidence, more focused, and I feel and look great. Also my physical health has also changed. I have lost one dress size in 8 weeks, and 6.5 inches in total.
  • From 10 push ups to 38
  • From 7 burpees in one minute I went to 15.
  • From 15 squats in one minute I went to 35.

3. What tools do you use to keep you on a healthy track outside of class?

When I’m not in class I stay on track by going for 20-30 mins walk,or runs along with trying to get in as many steps as I can in a day. Along with eating whole foods, no processed food and alot of fruits and vegetables.

4. If you could give one piece of positive advice to a chick just starting on her fitness journey, what would it be?

The best advice I would give to anyone who is just starting on their fitness is journey is… You won’t regret investing in your health. Yes, it may be hard at times, yes, you may be feel like quitting but look where you have come from, look how much stronger you are then yesterday, then last week. Now think of where you can go. Where you will be tomorrow, next week, next month. You can do it, never give up!!

5. Do you have a healthy trick or tip that you use that you could share?

My best tip I can give is having a support system. A supportive friend or family that help you stay on track and motivate you when you feel tired or giving up. Having those people around helping you make your fitness and health goals come true.

6. What is your fave FIT CHICKS Signature workouts & why?

I wouldn’t say I have a favourite workout. My favourite part is each class is different.  I found when I was going to

Embracing her new fierceness

the gym I would get very bored. Fitchicks is always changing up the workouts and routines keeping you on your toes.
