Chrissy has always been a fan of exercise and staying active. She ran track in high school and college then after graduation spent many years spinning and conditioning. However, it was not until Chrissy started attending classes at Studio Poise that her love of fitness turned into a passion and a focal point in her busy life. The community of women coupled with the Pilates based workouts gave her a new appreciation for what her body was capable of. Chrissy started working at Studio Poise in 2014 as the "lounge lady" and transitioned into an instructress a few months later. A life-long teacher Chrissy draws from her years in academia to bring the best analogies and motivation to each class possible. Caffeine-addicted, Chrissy’s natural state is always a bundle of energy which translates into EVERYTHING she does. She has been trained to teach Poise, Poise Fusion, Barreworke, Poised and HOT Bodies, Arms & Ab(noxious), Poised & Preggo and Poiseboarde. In addition, she holds licensing in Piloxing® and Piloxing® Barre. Outside of the studio Chrissy is an English teacher, wife to Tom and mother to baby TJ. She made fitness a priority during her pregnancy and is always happy to offer modifications or recommendations to any expecting moms!
