what is up babe!
Hi My Name is Christina and I'm just your average Mama on my journey who has fallen in love with helping other woman through my little corner on the internet!
If you like fitness, tacos, long walks on the beach, yoga pants, coffee, mimosas, palm trees or crystals..... then I know we are meant to be friends!!!
I am so excited to share a little piece of who I am with you and I hope you know how excited I am to connect with you too sister! So grab a coffee, smoothie or HECK... a glass of champagne... kick back and keep on reading sis!!!
where it all started....
Let's take it back a few...
Growing up I was an extremely active kid, playing every sport in the book! But because I lived in a very low income family, my poor nutrition habits began really early on. Eating processed, canned foods & junk food was the norm because it was cheap and easy for my single mom to provide.
These habits carried on into adult hood and only seemed to get worse as I stopped playing sports and begun my journey into my early 20's juggling life, bills, college, dating etc... I was working multiple jobs to make ends meet as a teacher, in a side beauty bizz and as a house cleaner on the side, but then spent my weekends drinking and eating junk food resulting in weight gain, low energy, losing my confidence and eventually lead to my reliance on anti depressent and anxiety medication.
It took gaining 30 pounds, living pay cheque to pay cheque and having a baby on the way. For me to have my offiicial wake up call!
I DOVE IN TWO FEET FIRST....
I'm so glad I realized I HAD to start with my health, to become a happier woman & mother.... the rest was history from there!
One day, scrolling on instagram. I saw an ad to become a FITNESS COACH / INFLUENCER. It literally could not have come at a perfect time. And trust me.... I had ZERO experience....But I was on maternity leave, wanting more for my life & families future then EVER!!!
I started by doing our at home workout program. In my first 21 days, I lost 15 pounds, finally got a grip on my nutrition and stopped taking my anxiety meds. I completey transformed my body from the inside and out.
I FINALLY believed that I could do hard things. That I wasn't destined for failure. That I DID have a pupose in this world. That purpose was to become the best mother I could be, to find my strength and confidence and help other women fall in love with taking care of themselves too!!! And over the past seven years I have done just that!!
BUIDLING MY DREAM TEAM & Becoming an Influencer
After running a few bootcamps my first 3 months and helping over 12 ladies get results with their health and fitness. I started to notice how many other incredible woman also loved fitness and would like a side hustle helping others too! It became very aparent to me how much I was loving being a coach the first few months, and was bringing in a steady side income while feeling incredible from the inside OUT.
After 4 months in.... I decided to quit my job as a teacher and pursue being a mama and entrepreneur on the side. The fire was lit and I ended the year as a TOP new coach in the company. I LOVE helping other woman feel empowered through their fitness, health and happiness! What started as a team of one... is now a team of thousands of coaches world wide in US, Canada and the UK! We are THE EMPOWER SQUAD!!!!
Social Media is a trillion dollar platform and fitness is a billion dollar industry. Online is our new future and our health is more importat now then ever. I love that we get to integrate health, community and inspire people for a living !!
I never would have imagined that showing up and playing around on Intagram, could end up turning into a platform to change peoples lives world wide! Never underestimate a woman with a dream ( & a tribe that has her back )!!!
LIFE & BUSINESS...
Life is not always sunshine and rainbows... Life can throw us curve balls, challenges and some really BIG mountains to climb.
Through out my last 7 years of coaching, I also walked through 7 years of womanhood that have shaped me in to who I am today. The good, the bad, the really FUN times and the ugly!
What I have learned, is finding a passion, a purpose and a community you love.... Makes all the difference in the world. Without "The Coach Life" and this community. I don't know who I would be today.
As I have faced adversity in my life, daily challenges and even major loss. I have still been able to lean in and grow this incredible business while meeting the most incredible humans in the world and loving what I do, every. single day!
Taking all the tools I've learned in my life and on my health journey and PAYING that forward to other woman is one of my biggest passions now. If that's helping a woman feel confident and sexy again through our bootcamp and self love club. Or helping a Mama be able to stay home full time, make killer money and create her dream life... all with her baby on her hip! I just get FIRED UP seeing my babes, SLAY THEIR GOALS!!!
I love connecting with new ladies and finding a way to support them. If it's as a new friend, a client going through my bootcamp or even helping a fellow mama turn into a MOMMY - preneur!
Don't be a stranger babe, I'd love to connect with you too!
Thank you for taking the time to be here with me today! Can't wait to chat with you more!
