Christine was born to be a mathlete, not an athlete. She has always loved sports, they never came naturally to her. By the time she turned 4, she had already had surgery on both of her ankles was bound to a walker for an entire summer. Needless to say while she enjoyed gym class as much as algebra, she was a lot better at algebra.

Despite her lack of natural talent, Christine remained active throughout her entire academic career until she went off to college.

It came as a real shock to her one day she realized she was overweight. 

Dining hall food, alcohol, multiple jobs and the stress of pushing to graduate college in three years all took their toll. Christine found that she was overweight, depressed and convinced nothing worked for her. She tried running, the Atkins diet and did 200 crunches a day. Convinced she would always be fat, she stopped focusing on weight loss altogether. 

After she completed her degree she made some necessary and deliberate changes to her lifestyle and at the ripe age of 28, Christine picked up her first barbell. It was cathartic. She felt empowered like never before. It was one of the few things in life that felt fair.

After years of technical and medical recruiting, she decided to take a huge leap of faith and go back to school for something she was truly passionate about: personal training.

This might have been the best decision she has ever made. 

Since graduating from the National Personal Training Institute, Christine has had the privilege of helping many truly amazing clients lose weight, move better, feel better, and become overall stronger, healthier, happier versions of themselves. 

Christine’s total lifestyle overhaul took over 10 years but she learned that you don’t need to be “a natural” to accomplish your goals. Despite her perceived lack of natural talent she is currently a Nationally Qualified Strongman competitor as well as a competitive bodybuilder.  She loves helping people find effective, sustainable and simple resolutions to help clients reach their fitness goals. 



News & Events

“I very much enjoyed my membership with VIM. I have to say that the highlight of my experience was personal training and small group training with Valerie. She was extremely committed to my success and helped me establish an effective goal plan. I saw incredible progress with her (I lost 10 pounds) and I am stronger, happier and healthier. I also really enjoyed her style for leading small group and yoga classes. It is clear she is passionate about this work and dedicated to her clients.”-Ani
