My passion is seeing people live healthier lives. The physical transformations are extraordinary, but most importantly, the mental and emotional transformation inspires me to be in the health and fitness industry. The foundation to GRITT came from losing my mother to ovarian cancer on 12.22.2016. She was misdiagnosed for a good 7-to eight years by three doctors. The third doctor diagnosed her with cancer after performing an emergency surgery for his original incorrect diagnosis of severe pancreatitis. I struggled mentally and emotionally through the loss of my mother. I felt like I had lost all sense of security after her passing. Her illness took me for a spin and led me down a rabbit hole to find out why she got sick and how it could have been prevented and treated, so I started reading about health and nutrition- google scholar became my best friend, and the certifications came after. I began to question everything we have been taught about a healthy lifestyle. I question everything, especially doctors, and get second, third, and fourth opinions until everything makes sense. My mother became the driving force behind my passion for fitness and nutrition. I knew I needed to help people lead healthier lives through a holistic wellness approach. GRITT is courage, bravery, backbone, spirit, strong character, strength of will, nerve, determination, tenacity, perseverance, and fortitude to push forward through anything. It’s a mindset that I want to help people achieve.

Kristina coach at GRITT



I have forever been inspired and had a passion for martial arts, and I started my martial arts journey at the age of four, inspired by classic films, such as Enter the Dragon starring Bruce Lee. I have participated in taekwondo, kickboxing, and judo; to me, it’s not just another hobby or a sport; it’s a lifestyle. It is an absolute pleasure to share my knowledge and technique with others. I’ve always believed that when there is passion, it also comes with compassion. The important thing to me as a coach is seeing others continue to grow, expand and improve in all aspects, not just in fitness but also in their lifestyle. Seeing people win, thrive, and maintain physical and emotional success makes me happy. It’s something we need to see more of in our communities.
