Kristie LaTray Bio
Krisite LaTray is a Meta-Fitness and Lifestyle Coach, mind and body shaper, and a believer in everyone's innate personal magic who strengthened her powers in India where she became a certified yoga instructor, 200-hour RYT and while working with Jillian Michael's, who personally chose her for the BodyShred Series.
She now uses her invincible energy to interrupt and shatter the cycle of tired dieters and life long exercisers and instead, cultivate mental and spiritual alignment to accept where they are, identify what's holding them back and replace it with supportive systems that will aid in meeting their goals. You can join Kristie and her award winning abs on a meta-fitness retreat abroad, at a vibrationally high spin class as one of California's Top Spin Instructors, and for a Total Body Reset she created for active people.
