For those of you who don't know me, my name is Cristina Capron Horford. I am a 24 year-old health and fitness "nut," as some would call it. My husband, Jon, influenced me to eat all organic and taught me about weight lifting as we began dating in 2013. Now, almost 6 years later, I've not only made health and fitness my passion, but my career.
A little background about me, I grew up in Grand Ledge, Michigan eating everything and anything I wanted. I was never obese, but I was extremely unhealthy. I played soccer my entire life but once it ended after my senior year of high school, it was up to me whether or not I wanted to exercise. I would run a couple miles and then eat an entire pizza or a burrito right after, thinking they cancelled each other out (they don't).
I graduated from Grand Ledge High School in 2013 and attended Michigan State University while majoring in Nursing. I was fine with my body but the extra fat I carried in my stomach always bothered me. I honestly didn't know there was any way to get rid of it, I thought that's just how my body was. I was never trying to lose weight but I was determined not to gain the freshman 15 and I actually managed to drop ten pounds during the school year (while eating cafeteria food!). I ate the healthiest options I could and made time to workout. I even sat through hour long classes in my sweaty workout clothes (although I don't recommend this).
I had thought about starting an Instagram dedicated to health and fitness and in October of 2014, I finally did it. I posted my own transformation and received messages from girls wanting help. I wrote them plans and helped them with their diet until they knew how to do it on their own. After I shared their amazing success, my little business began to grow. My goal is to help you fall in love with this lifestyle and teach you how to take care of your body so you no longer need me. This industry is so rewarding and I hope I can continue to motivate and support you all to live a healthy lifestyle and reach your goals. :)
