    • B.S. Exercise Science

    Kristine graduated from Towson University with a B.S. in Exercise Science. Growing up, she played different sports year-round, two of her favorite being swimming and field hockey. Back in 2010, she fell in love with the weight room when she realized that it brought out a stronger, healthier, and happier version of herself.

Kristine's main mission from then on has been to help others grow "big and strong" while mitigating injures, creating can-do mindsets, and giving clients tools to succeed - all while having fun!
