Cristina believes that physical activity, nutrition, and mental health all work together for the individual’s quality of life.
She has always had a passion for exercise but decided to become a personal trainer after working with a group of adult cancer survivors and seeing the enormous impact that exercise can have in someone’s life.
Now, her goal is to help people develop into healthier and happier versions of themselves by focusing on a balanced lifestyle.
By helping others build strength and endurance, move more efficiently, and prevent injury, she makes sure her clients have a long and active life.
Originally from Brazil, Cristina earned her B.S in Industrial Chemistry, with a M.Sc in Physical Chemistry.
After working in product development and focusing on raising her girls, she decided to transition into the field of health and fitness and obtained her personal training certification degree from Foothill College.
