About Kristina

Kristina started in sport as a competitive dancer and Shotokan karateka. These sports taught her the value of teamwork, discipline, and resilience. After gaining an understanding of the importance of movement for physical, mental, and social well-being first hand, Kristina obtained a Bachelor’s (Honours) degree in Kinesiology. Despite injuries ending her dance and karate career, Kristina continued to teach classes and learn about the benefits of exercise on the human body through her studies and research. Currently, she continues pursuing fitness in the gym and through marathon training.

Kristina has worked in a variety of environments with a wide-range of clients including rehab patients, individuals with disabilities, young and older adults, and youth. These experiences have allowed her to gain an understanding for individual differences in regard to effective training. Her science-based and tailored approach helps each client achieve their personal goals.

Fitness should be sustainable, accessible, and part of a healthy and balanced life. It is easy to get wrapped up in fads and complicated and conflicting opinions online. Kristina will equip you with the knowledge and skills to maintain a healthy lifestyle and improve your energy, strength, stamina, and quality of life so you look and feel your best.

1) What does being a fitness coach mean to you?
Being a fitness coach means more than just helping people get in shape or achieve their fitness goals. It means being a mentor, motivator, and supporter to help individuals adopt a healthy lifestyle that extends beyond the gym.

2) At PURE Motivation Fitness we believe… 
In empowering individuals to reach their full potential by providing them with the tools, guidance, and support needed to achieve their fitness goals. We strive to create a welcoming and safe training environment where everyone feels supported and motivated to become the best version of themselves in and beyond the gym.

3) Why should you want to train with me?
A trainer must be knowledgeable about exercise science, nutrition, and wellness to create an effective workout plan that aligns with their clients’ goals. However, my role with you as my client goes beyond creating plans. I will adapt and support you through the ups and downs of your fitness journey and be an accountability partner to help you stay on track with your goals and celebrate your successes along the way.

4) Being part of team PURE motivation fitness to me means…
• Being a part of a community of like-minded people with the goal of improving their well-being and having fun doing it. It allows me to be part of a movement to make a positive impact on people’s lives by empowering them to make healthier choices and supporting them in achieving their dreams.
