Hi, I’m Tomoko! Fitness & movement have always been a life-long passion of mine, and being able to share that with students and surrounding communities fulfills my dream.

Join me, I’ll bring the fun & energy, you bring your smile & water bottle!!
Fitness is not about being better than someone else, its about being better than you used to be.
Christie combines her knowledge of fitness, with her passion for people and will encourage you to push yourself past your perceived limits, without breaking her smile. Her classes combine yoga, self defense, strength and athletic intensity; she encourages her students to challenge themselves with the ferocity of a warrior while they attack their workout, while also having fun and being humble enough to laugh at themselves along the way.
Christie believes we should embrace the things that we’re tempted to shy away from because leaning-in when something feels really challenging or takes us out of our comfort zone, often presents us with opportunities to grow stronger; both in the gym and in life!
Exercise has been known to cause health and happiness.

Consistency transforms average into excellence.
I am passionate about getting everyone moving so that their quality of life is better. I personally began my fitness journey 25 years ago after being involved in a severe head-on collision. As a young teenager I was told that I’d be managing back and neck pain for the rest of my life. Regular exercise has been the most effective method to keep my discomfort at bay. Movement has been life-giving to me and I believe that every person who chooses movement as a lifestyle will reap rewards that money cannot buy. I became a cycle and TRX instructor in order to encourage others to join me in the fitness journey to better ourselves physically and mentally. Every person has a story and I want to learn more about you as we exercise our bodies and grow stronger every day!
