-B.S & M.S. in Exercise Science
-Lagree Level 1 certification
-Training since 2010
Fitness became an integral part of Kristin’s life during her 2nd year of undergrad at Western Illinois University when it became an outlet for stress and led to a decision to switch majors to Exercise Science where she went on to graduate with a bachelor’s degree in 2011 and returned to earn her Master’s in Kinesiology with an emphasis in Exercise Physiology in 2013. As a student at WIU she started both her personal training and group fitness careers.
Kristin’s decade plus experience in personal training and group fitness have led to her Fitness philosophy evolving over time to now focusing on exercise as medicine (physically, mentally and emotionally). She believes in using personalized training programs to help clients reach whatever goals they may set while always implementing cardiovascular, strength, endurance, flexibility and balance training to help enhance body composition and overall wellness. Her number one goal as a trainer is to create a safe, effective, and fun program/atmosphere for clients to experience.

Since earning his personal training certificate in 2021, Matt’s philosophy has been that fitness is to be used to make a lifestyle change in how someone looks, feels, and thinks about themselves to improve their quality of life and overall health.
While being a personal trainer is great, it has its challenges. Exercise is not as straightforward as people may believe. It can be complicated. Matt enjoys developing workouts that will best suit his client’s body type and performance level to achieve their goals.
When it comes to great workouts, Matt believes High Intensity Interval Training or HIIT is the best form of cardio to get into shape. HIIT workouts burn the most fat in the least amount of time and make more improvement in muscular adaptations than other forms of cardio like running or biking.
Enjoying life and having active fun is important to Matt. “I love to play volleyball. I play club volleyball for the WIU Leathernecks and sand volleyball all summer.”
