HI- I’m Christa, I am a proud feminist that loves empowering women to feel their best in their own bodies. I work with women at all stages of life like pre-post natal, mastectomy recovery, chronic pain, prolapse, and diastasis.
I have worked in the fitness industry for 10 years. It’s an industry that I have a love-hate relationship with. This industry was for so long pushing toxic narratives that put ridiculous expectations on women and lead many to develop an overwhelming feeling of inadequacy, not to mention injury. I struggled with my place in it because I often took a different approach. One that focused on function and education over aesthetics and trends.
The good news is the industry has started to shift and we are starting to put more emphasis on quality instead of quantity. We are starting to recognize that skinny does not mean healthy and intensity does not equal a good workout.
I believe that knowledge is power. My approach to teaching is to help you understand the WHY behind the movement. This empowers you to continue your work even when I am not around. I don’t believe in being the “keeper” of information. I want to share it and encourage you to educate yourself about your body because you will know more about it than I ever will.
If you take a private with me I will not try to pump out as many exercises as possible. I reflect on the body that is in front of me and structure our time together to accomplish your particular goals and focus on function and quality first! I will challenge you just as much mentally as physically. I will ask you to reflect on what is happening in and outside your body to allow you to better connect and understand your body. These concepts will apply to any intense athlete or someone who enjoys a relaxed walk.
As a recovering “it’s not a workout if I’m not drenched in sweat” person I understand this will be a challenge to change your mindset but I promise if you give it time and commitment you will see such better results and above all feel GOOD . And that’s what makes it Good Movement.
