Kristen’s Programs

Kristen’s programs were designed based on her experiences. Her programs are not for “at home”, they require you to join a gym to enable continual progression and take advantage of all of the various purposefully designed equipment. She knows what works and why it works and built this site to share what she has learned in order to help others reach their personal goals whatever they may be.

Our chosen software platform is called Trainerize and delivers The Skinny Without Struggle™ training programs to you with a mobile application so that you can take Kristen with you to the gym at any time,  complete with over 300 instructional videos.
