It's about Progress not Perfection.

Warm up

Warming up begins to increase your heart rate, therefore, your body’s blood temperature, sending more oxygen to your muscles for better performance. BUT! It also helps you gear up psychologically. Repeat to self: I got this.


Follow your personal, customized program designed by Kristen or do it yourself by picking some exercise videos from our library. Challenge yourself while being mindful of your body and don’t forget to smile along the way.

Cool Down & Stretch

Gradually slow your intensity for a few minutes, bringing your heart rate down, and then end your workout with some gentle stretches and deep breathing. Ahhhhhh. Now pat yourself on the back. You did it!

TrainerKristen Testimonials

Read what these rock stars have to say about training with Kristen!

I feel so lucky to have been introduced to Kristen and her TK90 program at what was really just the perfect time.  After I had my second child, I was struggling (haha to say the least) to find a way to get working out back into my day to day.  Before her program, I was disappointing myself each time I promised myself to go run/workout but then couldn’t make it work. When my friend told me about Kristen and I first spoke with her, it just felt immediately like a fit.  I truly feel no other program could fit more perfectly into my routine. With two kids and working full time, her program allows me to work out each morning in my living room (sometimes very early and often without even having to put on shoes). She built a program that slowly but consistently got me back into working out first 3, then 4 and now 5 days a week.  Her emails after I mark a workout completed holds me accountable, and her approach is so motivating!  Kristen makes it fun and makes me look forward to my new videos.  I feel stronger every day, but even more important than the physical have been the mental and emotional benefits. I just feel better and more like “me” again.  Thank you Kristen for what you do for all of us. It makes such a difference.

Kelly G – TK90 & Spring Challenge

I love working Kristen. She is knowledgeable, positive and encouraging. She designs the program to meet my needs but gently pushes me to move beyond my comfort zone. I have become much more confident about my abilities after working with her.

Becky P – Training Client & DIY

Her positive and kind approach has been very motivating. I feel more confident in the gym and definitely have tried things that I would never have done on my own. I feel stronger and she has inspired me to achieve my fitness goals.

Heidi W.

I have been training with Kristen since 2015. She is always changing it up. I have lost 25 pounds, and she helps keep me there. My muscle tone is great, and the stretching exercises keep me loose. Her happy spirit and bright face always keep me looking forward to our workouts!

Eric S.

Kristen has been a life saver!! I came to her with a desire to continue my current vigorous cardio routine but knew that my posture and weak core were leading to a possible injury. She was able to, in just a few short weeks, increase not only my core strength but to help me gain full awareness how to approach exercises with my upper body. This has catapulted me into working out in a way I never thought possible! Her positive energy is ultimately the best part of my relationship with her!

Kamilia S.

When I started working out with Kristen, I needed someone to keep me accountable and encourage me to incorporate fitness into my life. As we’ve worked together over the last few years, I’ve become stronger and more confident in my abilities. I’ve set hard goals for myself, and I’ve achieved them. Kristen is encouraging, resourceful, and a wonderful teacher. Her enthusiasm for fitness not only is evident in her commitment to her clients, but also is contagious.

Courtney H – TK30, DIY & Challenges

I started working out with Kristen about 2 years ago. I have struggled with my weight for the past several years and needed desperately to lose the weight and get healthy. Having a consistent program that Kristen had created for me has worked wonders. I am happy to say, I am down 100 pounds and am continuing to lose weight. I can see a huge increase with my flexibility and I am eager to try new things. I have so much more energy and confidence within myself. I owe a lot of that to Kristen with her encouraging me and motivating me along the way. She makes working out fun and meaningful!

Stacey E.

Initially I started working with Kristen after my ACL recovery to increase my overall knee strength, mobility and confidence in my physical abilities due to this new development (rehabilitated ski injury). Little did I know how much my physical confidence would soar! Today Kristen challenges me to do things I once thought would be impossible for me after my injury.

Robbin D – Training Client & Challenges

When I first starting training with Kristen I wasn’t sure what goals I was trying to achieve as I tested the waters of long distance running. Through her knowledge, accountability, genuine excitement for her clients, and even her push to get me to make yoga part of my routine, I’ve gone from completing my first half marathon, to now finishing over 12 Ultra distance races. Even through an injury, we continued making progress and she adeptly adapted to my temporary limitations. With Kristen, there is no limit to your personal growth.

Kyle R – Training Client & DIY

I have worked with Kristen for many years and consider her both a trainer and a friend. My workouts with Kristen make me accountable so that I can’t push exercise to “later.” Kristen’s workouts are very client-specific and she is great at modifying them to “work around” limitations when needed. In addition to the physical benefits of the workouts themselves, Kristen is a born encourager. She is great about reminding me of what I have done and can do, rather than what I have not done.

Kitty H.

I started with Kristen because my body felt tight, and not in a good way. Kristen’s weekly deep stretch sessions have made my aches and pains lessen. My stiffness has decreased and my range of motion has increased. I look forward to my stretch routine, sitting in each pose so that my body can relax and become stronger.

Kari H – Challenge & DIY

Kristen and I go back 5 years now – when she started training me in person in preparation for my wedding. We reconnected last year when she kicked of her website with a Challenge. I participated in the Challenge then started her online program right after!
I needed something to ramp up my workout routine and also keep me accountable. The TK90 program was exactly what I needed to start working out 6 days a week and to make it part of my routine! Kristen is great to work with in person and through her online programs. She makes each workout fun and reminds you why you’re doing it!
I completed by TK90 program and have been doing the basic DIY training for a few months now and am proud of the results. I have become much stronger and seen a couple inches fall off in the process! It’s also been impactful for my mental well-being.
Needless to say, the TK90 program is one of the best investments I have made for myself both physically and mentally. I highly suggest it as well as the DIY subscription!

Elise S – TK90 & DIY

I started Kristen’s TK90 Program in summer of 2019. I was never consistent with exercise and I never found something that was really fun to keep me going. NOW I sometimes even get up earlier to do my workout despite the fact that I‘m not a morning person at all! My goals were to get healthier overall, lose some weight and gain strength for ski season in Switzerland! I have gotten much stronger, I have lost more weight than I ever thought I would lose, and my skiing has been awesome this season! I feel better, healthier overall and have more energy too!
Kristen provides a great, customized workout program especially for me and my needs and motivated me from the beginning to keep going and try new things. She gives me feedback on all of my comments on the workouts and she had become part of my daily life despite the fact that we live on different continents!
What’s unique about Kristen is her positivity, her smile, and her passion. To be honest, I was not sure if online training was going to work for me, but I tried and it is so much fun and so easy to do. You don‘t need much space or time and you don’t even need to leave your flat. That makes it really easy to do your workouts every day. I really appreciate Kristen’s daily feedback and how she supports and motivates me. I just love her videos and that she also shares parts of her life with us on these videos too! She always gives suggestions for modifications and helpful tips. Also, the variety of videos is just awesome!
I think you just have to try it out and see for yourself how easy it is to move regularly. Even if it is just a short workout, it feels so good to do something and to see how you‘re doing better and how it gets easier every week. After the first workout, which contained a lot of squats, I could barely walk the next day and now I‘m doing sometimes some squats just for fun while waiting for a tram!

Corinne B – TK90 & Challenges

I have worked out with Kristen for over a year. She has helped me strengthen my core, work on my balance and increase my cardio. She is energetic, enthusiastic and well educated. Her individualized workouts bring variety to every session. She is quite simply the BEST!
