I’M KRISTEN ELYSE
I’ll SHOW YOU HOW TO ACTUALLY FIT WORKING OUT & EATING HEALTHY INTO YOUR BUSY LIFE—WOOHOO!
Over the past 3 years, I’ve helped women actually make working out a routine, enjoy eating healthy, and cut out toxic parts of their life.
Using a holistic approach combing my certifications in Life Coaching, Personal Training, & Yoga my clients are taken care of mind, body, & soul.
The ripple effect is powerful AF and it’s my passion and privilege to play a part in it.
A SMOOTHIE CHANGED MY LIFE
you’re worth it
In college I ate whatever I wanted and drank way toooooooo much, but I was a dancer and starting to take yoga classes and walked everywhere, so who cares???
Ha… I had surgery on my knee right before my senior year and all of the sudden I couldn’t be active, but I still ate like poop so I began to gain weight. I went from feeling myself to really disliking what I saw in the mirror real quick.
In 2012 there was just one day that something switched in my mind and I knew I needed to make some changes.
I bought a blender and started by adding a green smoothie into my diet every day. I then searched Pinterest for healthy recipes and taught myself how to cook and the art of meal prepping. I then learned how to lift weights and not feel like a complete goof when I went to the gym on my own. Then I started taking fitness classes that I swore I would never because OMG no (*cough* spin *cough*). Then one day I quit my corporate job and became a certified yoga teacher, personal trainer, and certified life coach in order to help others make this journey.
So to recap, I learned how to eat healthy and exercise all while I was working a full-time, corporate job then created a business in order to help other women do the same – all because I started with simply drinking a smoothie every day.
I hope you find my workouts, yoga sequences, meal prepping, and overall self-care tips to be helpful and maybe even enjoyable!
I would freaking love to help you…
tHIS WORKOUT PLAN WAS AMAZING!
I was not intimidated by the workouts, but they definitely were effective exercises that challenged me - meaning I started to see results quickly! The plan was flexible and was easy to squeeze into a busy schedule. I lost inches each week which indicated the workouts were making a difference and I noticed my “love handles” and double chin reducing as well as muscle gain and definition returning during this program. I would recommend Kristen’s program to anyone - whether you are trying to begin working out or just wanting to change up your routine.
I'm very happy i started working with kristen!
The workouts were easy to follow and something i could see myself doing past the challenge. I felt like i was actually accomplishing something when i was at the gym and always felt good after- mentally and physically! I highly recommend someone using you for any guidance with a healthier lifestyle and fitness. 🙂
THIS PROGRAM GOT THE PROVERBIAL BALL ROLLING & NOW i'M LITERALLY GAINING THE MUSCLE TO KEEP PUSHING FORWARD!
I've been an exercise adverse, skinny but squishy girl since I left regular sports in high school. My goal for six weeks wasn't to lose inches or pounds, but to establish a more consistent workout routine and maybe up my basic fitness. It's so easy to say, "I'll just find a video on Youtube and work out from home." But when you start from nothing it's even easier to say, "I'll start tomorrow." Working with Kristen forced that perpetual tomorrow to become today. Saying yes to this workout plan took one single, though impulsive (so I couldn't talk myself out of it), baby step and I'm so glad I did.
KRISTEN IS A LIFE COACH WITH A HOLISTIC APPROACH WHO WILL BE YOUR GUIDE THROUGH THE DARKNESS
It was definitely an act of God that brought Kristen Elyse into my life at a critical time. I had been trying to manage a string of traumas and hardships that stripped me of support and confidence. Kristen Elyse helped to restore both of those things and was a reliable navigator as I struggled to regain control of my life. She helped to clarify the importance of now, of how to learn from the past while letting it go, and plan for the future without letting the unknown consume me. Most of all, it was that heart of gold -- a friend indeed -- who was willing to hold my hand and provide real compassion that renewed my belief in others and myself. She speaks from experience and is willing to push boundaries when necessary. And from a practical standpoint, flexible and accommodating in her schedule and program development!
I'VE BEEN WORKING WITH KRISTEN IN VARIOUS FORMS OF EMAIL COACHING FOR THE PAST YEAR -- AND IT'S ONE OF THE BEST DECISIONS I'VE EVER MADE!
I go through phases of being highly motivated and, well, a bit less motivated. In the past this has often led to feelings of guilt and depression. Working with Kristen has really helped me break through some of those points of resistance and persevere toward my goals. This is definitely NOT to say Kristen is a drill sergeant! Far from it! She is incredibly nurturing and supportive and really works with you to troubleshoot the obstacles you’re encountering. She is great at helping me appreciate my own accomplishments and recognize many of the good things in my life that I can sometimes take for granted. Beyond enjoying working with her simply because she is an amazing person, what I like most about working with Kristen is how client-centered she is. I am the one who sets the goals and am working to get there. Kristen’s approach is really about helping me get there, rather than deciding what I want for me. And that’s great! I love that I still feel like it’s my life and goals that we’re working toward and that I have an awesome support system that is helping me get there!
kristen has been an INCREDIBLE ally to me since we started working together 2.5 years ago!
Her guidance is genuine and in-touch, she's easy to talk to, and she's helped me create needed space and structure in my life. I am a musician with multiple jobs, and she has helped me to prioritize and care for myself. She meets me right where I'm at, and takes my goals and my wellness seriously. She is a wonderful advocate- I definitely recommend her!"
