AREAS OF EXPERTISE
- Strength Training

With a passion for extreme sports, Kristin initially came to Elite as a patient of physical therapy. Although doctors suggested surgery in both her hips, Kristin was able to avoid the operating room and return to sports healthier than ever after working with her therapist. Finding the training so revolutionary, she decided to leave her job as a consultant and learn from the best in the field at Elite.
As an Elite Performance Specialist, Kristin focuses on helping her clients return to sport from injuries, and specializes in practical fitness that helps her clients maximize their potential both inside the gym and in performance sports. She also loves introducing clients to new activities and sharing her passion for the outdoors.
Outside of Elite, you’ll most likely find Kristin OUTSIDE! She is an avid rock climber and backcountry skier, and is constantly chasing the powder (or the waves in the summer). Her 95lb mastiff-mix, Reese, is usually along for the adventure.
