Maggie was challenged to maintain a healthy diet and be physically active most of her life. After having children, she struggled to keep her weight down and began experiencing severe heartburn, acid reflux, body aches and pains and a low energy level.
After being told she was at risk for developing diabetes, Maggie realized she needed to take immediate action and joined the Fitness Powers Biggest Loser program in 2012. What she liked about the program was the guided approach she received to become more physically active and learn how to take better care of herself.
Between the Biggest Loser program and changes to her diet, Maggie lost over 30 pounds and has improved her overall health. She continues to work towards her ultimate goal and is now more physically fit than she has ever been.
In learning how to take care of herself and exercising more, Maggie found a passion that has driven her to help others.
An interest in improving her own health, transformed into a goal to work with others to help them strengthen their bodies for better overall health. Kristen obtained her CanFit Pro personal trainer and P90x Live certifications in 2016.
Her drive and dedication to the world of personal training allows her to feel as passionate about your goals as you are. Her teaching style is to encourage and support you while you work towards personals goals you never would have thought possible.
