A note from Coach Kristen:
Hello! My name is Kristen Stone. I am excited to join the team and help you accomplish your goals.
My love for sports and fitness began in middle school, playing multiple sports through high school. In college, I continued my love for sports majoring in sports medicine. Hours and hours were spent in the training room and on the court and field, working with the basketball teams and soccer team. In the midst of school, I met Michael, the man of my dreams and I moved to Washington State to be closer in proximity and in our relationship. Next, marriage and babies came before I was able to finish school.
After 23 years of marriage, we have three children, Michael, almost 21 and two girls, Gwennyth and Morgan, that are 17 and 13. We have lived in Southwest Austin for 18 years.
Studying nutrition and fitness
After my third child was born in 2004, I started questioning the way we had been eating and had a hunger to learn more about nutrition and natural health. Over the next few years I continued to read, research and learn.
Ultimately, in 2010, I became a certified personal trainer through the Cooper Institute in Dallas. Next, I led in home workouts and organized and led neighborhood boot camps. After a couple of years I realized that my curiosity and passion was more centered around nutrition, natural health and healing. After looking for a program that would honor my responsibilities as a wife and mom, I found the Institute for Integrative Nutrition. In 2014 I finished my health coaching certification and have been actively practicing coaching.
Coach Kristen specializes in nutrition and essential oils
Nutrition is a top priority for me. Additionally, I find real benefits in the use of essential oils and currently working on an essential oil certification program.
