Cristy Owens FitOvation

Special Thanks to Todd Durkin for giving me the inspiration to CREATE MORE!

In my school days, I was in volleyball, basketball, track, gymnastics and even horseback riding. It was age twelve when I discovered the exercise videos and loved them! In gym settings, I was always inspired by group fitness classes, for it motivated me to work harder being that I love music and moving.

During my twin pregnancy, I was bed rested for months and during that time I promised to never take my body for granted again and decided that we should all be grateful we can even move at all. After getting back in shape, I moved into group exercise, but I still found that I was sick with mysterious illness, inflammation, lethargy, pain, and more. I had hashimotos disease, but it was more than that. I had a relationship with the wrong foods and it was making my body very sick. This was my journey into nutrition and true health for the long-term.

I had the opportunity to work with Todd Durkin, internationally recognized performance coach & professional trainer to dozens of pro athletes and trainer on NBC strong! I couldn't be more grateful to have worked with such an extraordinary person and Total Gym Corporation where I was featured in workout programs and infomercials that gave me the momentum and confidence I needed.

I created my own Health, Fitness, & personal development business called FitOvation as helping people was my passion and inspiring them to get their minds right and take action brought me joy! Personal development was something I was obsessed with and wanted for others too. I've helped 100's of people learn how to love themselves again, and get unstuck. I became a Certified High Performance Coach in order to help people find more clarity, energy, courage, productivity and influence needed to have more engagement, joy & confidence. These are important for true happiness. I have continued to inspire many people through my story and my willingness to promote health, fitness, and personal growth in order to create more awesome in their lives.

FitOvation is a MOVEMENT to create the BEST version of YOU, so that you can live to your fullest potential starting with loving yourself first! A Better YOU starts with a fit YOU from the inside-out! This doesn't just mean 'fit body'..It means a FIT LIFE. An overall sense of well being is CREATED and leads to happy families, and a better quality of life. Come visit me for: High Performance Coaching, Overall Wellness coaching, small business mentoring, personal training, group training or just because you want to say hi :) I help hundreds of people outside my zip code move past their self-limiting beliefs, hitting goals they never thought possible! I show them how to love themselves first and I can help YOU too!

In addition to helping people live happier, healthier lives, I’m a business coach and mentor! I love helping people find their passion and teaching them how to start and grow their own health and fitness business.

Eat Well, Stay Fit & Live with LOVE!

    I just finished a challenge with Cristy, and it is AMAZING!!! Cristy's passion and knowledge toward fitness coaching is not only focus on your body. It also goes deep into your mind. During the whole challenge, Cristy is so supportive, caring, and energetic. It brought the fitness training experience to another level. Cristy is not only showing how to get fit and get strong, she also shows how to be healthy inside and out. I knew I was up to the challenge when I signed up, but just after first day, I was not sure if I can stick to the end. Cristy's support came in and boosted me up. I found out fear often is just in your head. If you just do it, it's actually wasn't as hard as you think. If you don't do it, you will never find out. Cristy introduced me to healthy eating and regular workout. It helps me so much, and the result shows right away. I am happier, not as tired, more energetic, thinking positively, and so much more. The most wonderful part is the changes are not only on myself, it spreads to the whole family. I am healthier and happier, and my family is healthier and happier. On top of that, just after 3 weeks, I have lost 10 pounds and 7 inches overall!

    Wanna know about Cristy? Amazing, Inspirational, Motivating, Kind... These are just a few words to instantly describe her. I know, an online coach? Really? But, it's working. When I started my journey 6 weeks ago, I really wasn't sure what to expect. I was scared of... The cost? Being judged? Pushed too hard? Not understood? All the excuses you tell yourself about having some kind of "trainer". I was so ready for a lifestyle change though, that I pushed those fears aside and went for it. And you know what the first thing Cristy said to me after that leap of faith? She said "thank you so much for trusting me..." Without me ever expressing my fears. This is how I KNEW this was the best choice I could have ever made. Because Cristy instinctually knew my fears. From the word go, every time I would have a question/concern, before I even had a chance to voice it, Cristy was answering it. Either through a post, a video blog, a personal message, or some other means. Now? 10 pounds and 5 inches less later my mind set is still there. Cristy is still there. I can't wait to see where this journey will lead with her by my side. Good luck!

    I am excited to be on this journey with Cristy as my online coach. She has come alongside of me and strengthened, encouraged, educated, and supported me. Because of her ongoing support I have made changes to my life that have empowered me to be better than I have been before. I feel healthier physically and emotionally since making these changes. She has encouraged me to do things that I really did not want to do, but because I followed her advice and tried something new I am now finding success. She is great at what she does, and I feel grateful to have found her on my journey to a healthier me.

    WOW Thank you so much Donna! This note made my day! I'm blessed to be serving you on your journey and I'm so excited about where you're going!

    I am having a wonderful experience with Cristy as my online coach. I travel 80% of my time with my career and had just about given up on the ability to stay energized, get my metabolism back up and eat healthy with my schedule. Cristy has offered me exercise plans, eating plans and personal health coaching that has gotten me back on track. I am 59 and losing weight has also been a challenge but with Cristy's help in 21 days I have also dropped 9 pounds and 8 inches. Finally, as a nurse, I appreciate Cristy's holistic approach to coaching. She cares about the whole person, not just the physical body but also the emotional and social aspects of a person. Her positive" can do" attitude and caring spirit are contagious! I will continue working with Cristy to meet my goals. I am a better me thanks to Cristy!

    Angela Sells! Thank you for this lovely note about my services! WOW! I am just now figuring out that you can respond back to the notes left here in this app! THANK YOU for this sweet note! I love working with you! You're one busy, traveling executive that knows the importance of HEALTH!

    I have tried every single possible way to lose weight for as long as I can remember. A close friend of mine connected me with Cristy and my life was changed forever. In such a short time Cristy not only taught me how to lose weight but she showed me how to eat heathy and enjoy it. No matter how busy she is she always makes time for those of us she is helping in this journey. It is not just about weight loss and working out, she inspired me to live my life at my fullest potential. In my first 21 days with Cristy as my coach I lost over 11 pounds and 14 inches. I plan to continue on this journey of being the best me I can be thanks to Cristy!
