Christa has been living in Chicago for almost 9 years, and originally started out working as a veterinary technician at a large hospital in Chicago. After about 7 years, she found herself wanting to spend more time at the gym than at work. Her passion had changed to fitness, and this really kicked in while training for the 2013 Chicago Marathon. Christa decided to pursue her personal trainer certification through the National Academy of Sports Medicine and is currently pursuing her certification through Precision Nutrition, a highly effective nutrition coaching system designed to help clients meet their goals and be educated on the fuel they need to train hard and be healthy. She has participated in the Chicago Marathon, Triathlon, and multiple half-marathons. She grew up horseback riding and hopes to get back in the saddle this spring. You can catch her traveling often, especially when she can make a surf trip out of it!
