Movement is vital and primal! It's the way grown-ups play on a busy day. Kris has been in the fitness and wellness industry for 15 plus years, and she loves what she does! Move, sweat, breathe, feel your true strength... come out and play! Kris began her fitness journey shortly after having her daughter and joining a gym. Prior to fitness, Kris was in the music industry. She started studying Natural Health, and realized how movement and what she was studying went together. Kris holds multiple certifications in training and group fitness, along with a Bachelors of Natural Health. When not training, Kris enjoys spending time with her daughter, listening to music, and reading.
