Hello, my name is Mandy Craig.
I decided to step into my health and fitness journey because I was tired of gaining weight, being out of shape, and a part of my body always hurting. I decided to use 4Star Fitness because 11 years ago I was in a similar situation.
I had just had my 3rd child and had someone ask me when I was due. I told my husband that was enough and we had to do something. We met Crystal at another facility and ended up training with her. Crystal trained me and I was in the best shape of my life. Over the next few years, I continued working with Crystal. She eventually moved away and started her family. I would travel to her occasionally for a work out. We stayed in touch while she was living out of town and we waited until the day she told us she was moving back. As soon as she got settled in it was a no brainer who I wanted to work with again.
Crystal and I discussed where I had been at one time, how I was feeling, what injuries I had either in past or currently, and then we discussed where I wanted to be. Crystal started with a fitness plan, working out with her and what to do on the other days. We got started and she continued to touch base to see how I was feeling. During our training sessions, she would evaluate knees, ankles, etc to see if anything needed extra focus. She would text often to see how it was going. After some time, we started with a nutrition focus to go hand in hand with my daily schedule and the workouts we were doing.
