Kristy Adams

My name is Kristy Adams and I am an ACE Certified Personal Trainer, Sports and Conditioning Specialist, and a Fitness Nutrition Specialist. I believe in a balanced outlook on not only your lifestyle, but fitness and nutrition as well. I also am a strong believer of performance and nutrition over aesthetics, because where performance and nutrition is enhanced the body will naturally follow. I started doing fitness competitions in 2011. I loved the dedication and drive it took. My passion for fitness and the sport was at an all time high. The hours of cardio and strict meal plans took over my life personally and physically but I thought “t”. With that mindset, I excused the extreme actions my coach had me taking in order to get on stage to compete. It wasn’t until after my second competition I did the whole “rebound” weight gain and realized this was not the right way to go about the active lifestyle I desired, nor was I comfortable with the neglect I was giving to other areas of my life. I wanted to find a healthier approach to nutrition, getting active, and competing. At that point is when I went back to school for nutrition and studied for my certifications in personal training. I started my own fitness & nutrition company, Kristy Adams Fitness, along with a sports & conditioning training camp about a year ago. I was still craving that adrenaline rush I would get from fitness competitions so I soon joined crossfit. It didn’t take long to fall in love with the raw brutal workouts, and the drive & competition to always be better!

My motto for not only my clients but myself is to train daily so that whatever you are called to do in life you can be the best version of yourself!

In 2013 I was diagnosed with MALS (A very rare vascular disease) and Endometriosis. This caused me to need several surgeries. ultimately, leading to a bypass to correct my celiac artery that was facing the wrong way preventing blood flow to my organs. There was a complication during surgery causing me to have another surgery to repair my liver and needing 6 units of blood. After a very rough recovery and one of the toughest fights I’ve ever made, I am here today to celebrate life! Obviously fitness is a big part of my life & the doctors told me I may never be able to workout as much or as hard as I did before I got sick, but I am stronger now than before my surgery.

Although my health it isn’t 100% it doesn’t define me and it never will.
