Have you ever met someone that you are immediately drawn too? That was how I felt the first time I had a conversation with Kristen. We met over the phone and instantly bonded over our passion for helping women find their inner beauty and strength. I knew I wanted her on the podcast as soon as I started it because she fully embodies what it means to be a BossBabe. She works hard, gives it her heart and soul and has found a way to impact lives doing what she loves. Check out this week's episode to hear her story and tips for creating a community and a following that will encourage and support you no matter what.
After graduating from Texas A&M University in 2012, Kristen moved away from her family and friends to the DFW area to pursue a career in technology. Alone and needing a way to make new friends, she took to the internet to find a new hobby. She always admired pole fitness and aerial athletes but the sport was something she could not find back home in Bryan, TX. Kristen found a pole studio and the fire was ignited. Little did she know that her journey to find a new hobby and friends would be a killer workout and her forever passion.
In 2014, she started instructing pole and aerial classes. Kristen found her new fire - empowering others through movement. In March 2018, she founded Shine Fitness Studio a pole and aerial fitness studio in Hurst, TX (the only aerial fitness studio in the Mid-Cities) offering pole, aerials, flexibility, and strength training. Kristen and her team have cultivated a community of strong, supportive, and empowering women and men. The Shine team believes that every person has a light within, you just have to let it SHINE. Under Kristen's leadership, Shine Fitness Studio has grown from a team of two to a team of ten and expanded from a small 400 square foot space to a new, larger 1500 square foot space in one year. Shine Fitness Studio now offers over 40 classes a week for adults and children and along with private parties, private instruction, and aerial acts for events.
