Meet Skella (aka Cristi)

My Vision

The skellaFiT Personal Training community is a shame free environment where we help set goals, share ideas, motivate one another, offer support, guidance and accountability. We participate in activities together that make us stronger and stretch our comfort zones. We show up as the best versions of most authentic selves, for ourselves. We also never take ourselves too seriously and believe belly laughs are the best core workout of all time.


Hi, I'm Skella.

Certified Personal Trainer 
and Untraditional Athlete

I’m probably not what you’re expecting.

I don’t come from a traditional sports background.

In fact, once upon a time I hated fitness. 


I used to joke about how the only time I ever did a sit up in college was when I was getting out of bed in the morning.


I hated running. I hated how awkward and alone I felt when I went to the gym. I absolutely hated the way diet culture was making me feel about myself. 


Then I found Roller Derby…

I always loved roller skating as a kid, and in my 20’s I had built up enough angst to hit like a Mack Truck, so roller derby was a natural fit. I was stunned how much I enjoyed getting sweaty and loved the empowering dynamic of the team. However, I knew if I wanted to compete, I had to cross train. This lead me on the path to find ways to enjoy exercise and actually look forward to it, instead of adding another thing I “had” to do onto my dreaded To Do list.  


I knew I couldn’t be the only untraditional athlete in the world, so I wanted to share how to make fitness fun, sustainable and how setting goals above and beyond weight loss can be beneficial both mentally and physically. Once I truly let go of diet culture, I began to feel comfortable in my own skin, and that kind of freedom is a gift I want to share with the world.


I was certified by the National Academy of Sports Medicine as a Personal Trainer in 2020, TRX Certified in 2021, and in 2022 I will be certified as a Sport Nutrition Coach through the National Academy of Sports Medicine.


I would be honored to be in your corner. If you think we’d be a good fit, feel free to give me a shout. Click on the Get Started button and let's go!
