KrissyChin_Pic3Krissy Chin was born and raised in New York. Throughout my childhood, I was always highly competitive and engaged in sports, which continued into high school, where I was a 3-Varsity athlete and captain earning honors. I was propelled into health and fitness when both of my parents were diagnosed with cancer. They both battled hard and later lost their lives to the awful disease. I was then further determined and motivated to approach life in a healthy, positive, and upward direction while inspiring and helping others along the way...

Kristi Winger Szudlokristi Winger Szudlo was born in Mississippi (a southern girl!), but grew up living most of her life right outside of Columbus, Ohio with her two older brothers who taught her a great balance of being 50% tomboy, but still allowed her to be 50% pageant girl/princess. She attended Ohio State University and of course a BIG Buckeye fan (OH-IO!!! Go Buckeyes!!!). Lived in the suburbs of Columbus since graduation and love how young, active, and diverse the city of Columbus and the suburbs are.

She worked in medical sales full time since college and love what she does for a living...

Trisha Marmo was born nearly 47 years ago in Hialeah, Florida and was raised by a single mom in the Florida Keys. Her mom struggled to support her and her younger brother, and that experience had a huge impact. She was determined, from a very young age, to be successful and decided that getting her education was her ticket out. She was the first person in her family to go to college, and had to work and pay her own way through it. It took her 7 years to get her Bachelor’s degree in Nursing from the University of Florida, but when you work 2-3 jobs and go to school, it takes a little bit longer...

Your father is a former bodybuilder. How was it like growing up? Was he the reason you decided to follow the healthy lifestyle and become a fitness model and competitor? If not, what and/or who inspired your decision?

Can you give us a brief background about yourself (where you were born, how it was like growing up, profession, education, where you live, etc.)?

I was born in Los Angeles, California, moved to New York City at 5 years old when my parents divorced, and then my mom, sister and I moved to Saint Cloud, Florida when I was 9 years old. Moving from big cities to a small town where people raised cattle and did rodeo was a HUGE culture shock for me! The pro was that I had lots more freedom and the con was it was a small town where everyone knew everyone! I wasn’t born and raised there, so no one knew who I was...

Can you briefly tell us about yourself (where you were born, how it was like growing up, profession, education, where you live, etc.)?

I was born in and still reside in Cincinnati, Ohio. Fitness was unheard of where I grew up, so it’s an extra blessing that I found a fit lifestyle. I also lost my mom at a very early age and didn’t learn how to embrace my body until I found fitness. Now I’m just madly in love with being a fit & feminine woman. My profession is being addicted to people. ;) Luckily, owning my own gym allows me to fulfill this in a positive, productive, and beautiful way.

You are a fitness professional, personal trainer, and gym owner in th...
