Today we’d like to introduce you to Chrissy Lundgren.
Chrissy is proving that her passion, regimen and transformational results are making her one of the latest in-demand trainers. Her original fitness program, Burn It Off By Chrissy, is about to launch online and take 2018 by storm for those looking to improve themselves in the new year.
Born and raised in Dearborn Heights, Michigan, Chrissy initially thought she wanted to be an actress and dancer so she moved to Los Angeles to pursue the dream. After a few acting gigs, she realized that acting wasn’t the right fit for her when she realized all she wanted to do was go to the gym and focus on helping others.
Chrissy’s big break into fitness came when she completed the lengthy audition process and landed the job of trainer for fitness entrepreneur Tracy Anderson. For three years, Chrissy worked with many celebrities and people from all walks of life. She then went on to be the head trainer at Body By Simone for two years. She was the head trainer, developed her own client following, and became inspired to start her own program, Burn It Off By Chrissy, so that she could focus more on clients individual needs and help them reach their fitness goals. Chrissy has since become a tour de force in the fitness world. She was a guest trainer for the popular MoveInterActive at Pulse Fitness Studio with Derek and Julianne Hough.
Chrissy has also been pictured in US Weekly training one of her clients, Emmy Rossum.
Her high-intensity interval training (HIIT) workout is dance-cardio based with a mix of weight training and core work. You can find Chrissy both in the studio and do privately in-home sessions. She has also trained her clients via Skype and FaceTime when they are on set or out of town on business. She is so excited to bring you these amazing workouts that you can access at your convenience! Get ready to Burn It Off!
In addition, Chrissy is involved with charities such as ASPCA and Movember. She also helps the homeless and helps provide communities with their living necessities. Chrissy resides in Los Angeles with her husband and still enjoys dancing when she is not training.
Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
I believe if it was a smooth road, everyone would do it. Ha. This journey has been wonderful and also hard at times. With schedules, filming for online workouts, having time to program everyone and finding time myself.
I’ve learned that it’s impossible to do it all by myself. I’ve been blessed to have some great people in my corner supporting me that helped me get off the ground. I will forever appreciate them. My clients have also been very helpful, loyal and supportive as well.
Alright – so let’s talk business. Tell us about Burn it Off by Chrissy – what should we know?
Burn it Off by Chrissy is a personal training business. I train clients one on one, classes, online (www.burnitoffbychrissy.com) and even FaceTime session.
My method is unique because I listen to everyone’s needs and goals. I want to keep the womanly figure on the women I train – if that’s what they desire – but also give them lean muscles. So, I focus on smaller muscles as well as the bigger ones. We do HIIT and also a lot of balance and tension work with bands. I focus on getting a full-body workout in each session. Women need to lift weights for overall toning and to keep their bones strong and healthy. So, we focus on cardio as well as weight training.
For my male clients, I know how to build their muscles to achieve whatever their goals may be. I can change my method to fit them individually. If they need to bulk up for a role or slim and tone, I’ll know how to help them achieve that. I also know how to rehabilitate people with injuries and can still help them get an effective workout because I’ve experienced some injuries myself. I specialize in backs, hips and shoulders.
The core of BIO is the heart! I will give you a 100% heart to get you to your goal. My proudest moments are when clients feel great about themselves and have the confidence in themselves.
Is there a characteristic or quality that you feel is essential to success?
I found success through developing a rapport with my clients and listening to their health issues and personal fitness goals. I also get to know my clients on a personal level which makes their fitness goals more obtainable. They feel like they’re working out with their friend because I get to know them really well. The training sessions become like therapy for both of us!
Education is also a huge component of my training. I want the client to fully understand their body. It’s the little milestones that the client hits week by week that leads them to be successful and helps them reach their bigger fitness goal. I care about my clients and educate them on how to make themselves train smarter. I also workout alongside them and inspire them in ways others cannot. I’m always honest and will be truthful with my clients.
