I'm Kristin

Hey there!

a Bay Area personal trainer for driven, successful women, weight loss coach, and Olympic rower. 

You’ll find me energetically cheering on my fitness classes online or in Alameda, California, helping women around the country lose weight through my transformational programs, or snuggled up on the couch with my pup planning an epic weekend brunch. 

what  lights me up?

Teaching you that living a healthy life doesn’t mean never eating cake again, working out nonstop, and hating your life. 

You know that chubby kid picked last in gym class? That was me. Uncoordinated, unathletic, and unmotivated. When I found rowing, I learned the power of a coach and team to motivate me.

Finally, I had a coach who taught me what to do and what to focus on to get ahead the fastest. And I had a community of like-minded teammates on the same path as me. 

I wasn't always good at athletics or wellness...

 ...but once I learned the system to achieving big, daunting goals, I saw that it was a possibility. It was all about daily habits, taking it one step at a time, and surrounding myself with women who challenged me. 

Over my 15-year career, I represented Team USA at 7 World Championships, 7 World Cups, and won 5 international medals. At age 26, I made the Olympic team. It’s still wild for me to think that I did all that. 

I was a lightweight rower, which meant I had to step on a scale and “make weight” before every race. If I was over the limit, my boat was disqualified. It was a crazy, high stakes environment, but it also meant I got really good at losing weight in a healthy, sustainable way that didn’t make me lose strength - or my sanity.

I never thought I’d get to the Olympic Games...

I started personal training while doing double practices every day to train for the Olympics. When I retired from elite competition in 2015, I'd fallen in love with a new passion: helping women discover their greatness by losing weight and getting stronger. 

These days, I'm passionately serving my clients as I build my business to Olympic heights.

I’ve been honored to work with over 200 women on a



through personal training, small group training, and weight loss coaching. I also work with junior rowers. 

deep, transformative level

“I feel happier, healthier and more energetic than I have in ages. This truly has been life-changing.” 

I recently had a client tell me,

THIS is why I do what I do! 

this or that?

Let's see what we have in common!
