Welcome to another meet the team post, where we have been letting you get a better peak at who makes up Team FloMo and who they are both in and outside the gym.
Christina is an Alachua County native, born and raised. She has been training at FloMotion Fitness since June of 2017. Christina began her fitness journey here shortly after getting engaged with a goal to feel strong and confident on her wedding day. After years of trying different routines and countless gyms, she was happy to find her home at Flo’s. She recognizes the valuable support the group fitness setting offers. With Flo’s guidance, she has continued to grow and expand her passion for “Garage Gym Life”. She has enjoyed stepping in and serving as a substitute instructor over the course of this past year.
When in the gym, Christina prefers strength training (lifting is her thing). BUT she has come to accept that it is all about balance when it come to a healthy, effective workout routine. She may hate cardio, but she’ll bust out some burpees with the best of them. She also enjoys mixing up her workout routine to include bike riding, yoga, and walking her pup Penny. Christina tries to keep it light-hearted, fun and focused when in class so everyone feels welcome and encouraged.
Christina loves spending time outside enjoying all that Florida has to offer including kayaking the Santa Fe, hiking trails around town, and fishing in Cedar Key. Her and her husband enjoy cooking together and finding ways to make healthy meals that she actually WANTS to eat. She is currently beginning her new adventure starting a Master’s program at the University of Florida. She may not have a personal training certification, but she is a valuable part of our team and is definitely a great resource to all of us, especially when it comes to the "heavy lifting". We are so happy to have her with us teaching group fitness on Tuesday and Thursday mornings!
