About Crystal A.K.A 4StarFitChic

Hello 4Stars!!

 

My name is Crystal Winfrey-Ellington a.k.a 4StarFitChic

My 4Star Fitness Mission, To improve the QUALITY and VALUE in one’s journey of Health and Fitness.

My 4Star Fitness Vision- To implement what the 4Stars represent- Physical, Mental, Emotional and Spiritual Focus.

My Background is versatile:

  • Bachelors Degree in Exercise Science and Sports Medicine
  • Fun Fact: An intern fresh out of college working with An MMA fighter who saw something in me to have me personally train them for their first fight to become an official UFC fighter- They won. That planted the seed for me…
  • Former Racquetball and Track and Field Athlete:
    • Started at age 6, playing Racquetball competitively and became an eight-time state champion, five-time national champion, four year Racquetball Jr. Olympic Team member, and four-time world champion up until the age 18.
      • At 14 yrs old was the youngest selected to train for the Junior U.S Racquetball Team. Trained at The Olympic training center in Colorado Springs 4 years in a row. First year, saw Blaine Wilson from the Mens US Gymnastic team!
    • Earned a Full ride Academic and  Track & Field scholarship to Ball State University. I must say although Track & Field helped pave my way through college in the sports realm, I thank my Racquetball career in what it taught me physically and mentally growing as an athlete and person. All of the people I met across the country, the places I trained/competed, the high level of competition and my coaches, I can say played a major part in helping me through my college career and even into today.
      • Women’s Track Athlete of the Week, NCAA Regional qualifier in the 400m dash, named to All-MAC First Team in the 400m and Second Team in the 200m dash, and anchored the MAC Championship winning 4x400m relay.

The most important in all of my background tells a story from where I started, to where I am now. Nothing is by coincidence, just the Lord ordering my steps.

All the opportunities and experience I have gained led me to beautiful and HEALTHY relationships. I have learned a lot and still growing and learning.   

Join me in this beautiful yet complex journey. We ALL have a story. The major key is how we treasure our health through it…because without it we can’t get very far. Our health is indeed our wealth.

Stay healthy and blessed yall.
