Kristy Albright - Personal Trainer
Born and raised in Alamance county, Kristy Albright is a NASM Certified Personal Trainer with specializations in strength and conditioning, weight-loss, and nutrition counseling. This is her story in her own words:
"You ever get to the point of being SO over yourself that you're just mad at the world? That's where I found myself 4 years ago. I was overweight, depressed, anti-social--name it! If you're currently feeling like this, just know that you are NOT alone and that I know exactly how that feels. I knew something in me had to change if I was going to become the greatest version of myself that I knew my family deserved--and hence the journey began!
Before becoming a NASM certified personal trainer, I lost 65+ pounds naturally and have fallen back in love with my life! I pride myself on helping others find their own powerhouse!"
