18 Jul Kristen’s Story
It’s Member Spotlight time! Meet Kristen, one of our amazing KFITters who never particularly liked working out… but Girllll, that has changed!
Read Kristen’s story below. You just might see some of yourself in it…
I grew up in Braintree and have lived in a couple of other towns in MA before ultimately moving back to Braintree. I work as a Human Resources Specialist at an asset management company in downtown Boston.
Outside of KFIT and work, I love to spend time in NH with my boyfriend and his son. We love going to the lake in the summer months to swim, go on my parents’ boat, go tubing down the rivers, and of course hanging around the campfire making s’mores. I also enjoy party planning, cooking, and doing crafts (I have more decorations than Hobby Lobby!)
If you opened my fridge you would see lots of cheeses and meats as my boyfriend and I love a good charcuterie board. You would also find a variety of fresh veggies and of course some Reeses’ Peanut Butter Cups. My guilty pleasure is watching Guy Fieri’s shows on the Food Network. I’m currently hooked on The Tournament of Champions!
I decided to join KFIT about a year ago. I was finally ready to start making healthy changes in my life. I started in the semi-private KFIT classes and after a few months and some encouragement from Mazz (KFIT veteran Michele Mazzarella), I decided to try out the Bootcamp classes. I have been addicted since!
I have never been a huge fan of going to the gym but now I can’t wait to get to class each day! There really isn’t a workout that I hate! I love cardio and core days as I feel I have to push myself more to get through those workouts! Since joining KFIT I have started to eat healthy, and have so much more energy and I love how strong mentally and physically I have become!
The coaches are amazing and have taught me so much! They constantly encourage me to try new moves and are always there to correct me when I’m doing something incorrectly. I never thought in a million years I’d be lifting weights and pushing myself the way I do! I also love how all the members help each other out and encourage one another! Signing up for KFIT was one of the best decisions I have made!
Kristen, we’re so happy that you joined our community. Keep up the great – and inspiring – work!
