Chrissy Reilly

Health and fitness have always been passions of Chrissy’s, beginning when she was young being a was a dancer and athlete. Her passion really prospered after she began preparing for her first National Physique Committee (NPC) bikini competition.


After learning so much about herself, her body, and the importance of proper nutrition and exercise, she decided to take training to the next level. She received her personal training certification through the National Association of Sports Medicine, and during this time, finished her degree at UCSD in Biochemistry and Cell Biology.

Another factor influencing her passion for promoting a healthy lifestyle is her medical history of celiac disease, which is an autoimmune disorder in which the body’s inflammatory response attacks the small intestine after ingesting gluten. By living a healthy and fit lifestyle, focused on nutritious wholesome food and staying active, she has been able to control her disease while feeling great.

Chrissy began training women of all ages and backgrounds, and found the results her clients and she achieved rewarding and motivating.
