“If you always put limits on everything you do, physical or anything else, it will spread into your work and into your life.
There are no limits.
There are only plateaus, and you must not stay there, you must go beyond them.”

Christina is a certified personal trainer with International Sports Science Association (ISSA). Prior to that she was a Retail Professional, with a Bachelor’s degree in Retail Business Management and an Associates degree in Fashion Merchandising from the Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT) in New York City. She worked for several years in wholesale before transitioning to the Human Resources side of the business. When her son was born she decided to put her career on hold and fully commit her time to caring for her family. As any parent knows kids can keep you very busy leaving little free time for anything else. Once her 2nd child turned 2 she really struggled with trying to achieve balance in her life. She felt overwhelmed and stressed, her energy level plummeted. She started to gain some weight and not feel herself. It was at this time she decided something needed to change. She decided to join a summer boot camp in her neighborhood to be more active and immediately fell in love with working out and how it made her feel. As a child growing up she never played sports and she struggled with body image issues. Incorporating fitness into her life and making special dietary changes to her diet after being diagnosed with Celiac disease in 2010 has improved her body, mind and her confidence level. Motivated to get certified as a hobby to educate herself she is now excited to start a second career and is committed to helping others to live a healthier and happy life. Specializing in beginner to intermediate strength training and conditioning she has attended numerous Personal Training workshops in Personal Training National Academy of Sports & Medicine (NASM), Functional Training and Corrective Exercise, Group Strength, and Myofascial Release. Other interests Zumba, Mat Pilates and Bodybuilding. In an industry where there are so many mixed messages in the news and on social media, she strives to promote a positive self image for girls and woman through fitness and nutrition. “I am not in the business of changing bodies I am in the business of changing lives”. Christina offers one on one personal training and small group training in NJ. View all posts by Christina Lasky
