Kristy HeadshotKristy Adrian

Kristy has been a personal trainer since January 2014. She actually started out as a client of Fit 4 Life, but after losing 100 pounds in just under a year she decided she wanted to help others discover this new-found energy and enthusiasm for life this change had created in her.

Kristy loves the Fit 4 Life clients and the sense of community and family. Her favorite part of being a trainer is getting to work with such awesome people and inspiring them to go through the same thing she did when she was in their shoes.

Kristy enjoys making the workouts fun, and believes it is easier to make a change when the workout and the people you work out with are enjoyable.

When she is not at Fit 4 Life Kristy enjoys spending time with her husband, Tim, her two boy Brad and Matt, and her daughter Anna. She also enjoys cross-stitching, baking and working out.

Kristy is a very energetic, smiling person who always keeps it positive and motivating. One of her favorite expressions during the workouts is “positive thoughts only!”
