What I do
I’m on a mission to help busy, goal-oriented women create a life they love. For most women, this means learning how to prioritize their needs and create new habits that support increased energy, a fitter body, healthy self-confidence, and rewarding relationships. I specialize in helping these women achieve their health, fitness, and physique goals without traditional “diets,” starvation, or depriving themselves of the things they love!
Everyone’s journey is unique and I strive to customize a movement and fitness plan that supports your individual needs. In addition to considering your goals, I customize plans based on the time, equipment, and opportunity you have to work out. No gym membership? No problem. No equipment? No problem. No time away from your kids? No problem.
In my experience, most women who want to lose weight are guilty of one (sometimes both!) of these cardinal nutrition sins: not eating enough protein or not eating enough period! My nutrition coaching is a habits-based approach where we emphasize consistent, small actions rather than drastic changes.
Have you told yourself you don’t have time to workout? Have you made it a habit to sacrifice the things you want for your husband or children’s needs? As women, we wear a lot of hats but we tend to forget about the hat that we wear for US! I work with clients on re-wiring our minds to remove “all or nothing” thinking, establish a growth mindset, and utilize tools to eliminate stress and emotional eating.
Meet Kirstin Smith
Who am I and what makes me qualified to lead you on this journey? Well, I’m a wife and mother of four young kids who has personally struggled in the same areas that you might find yourself struggling with today.
My husband and I have owned a gym in Houston, Texas for 10 years and, over the course of 4 pregnancies and postpartum phases, I felt an intense pressure to “look the part” of a gym owner. I worked out and ate healthy thinking I would regain a pre-baby body, but I never seemed to get there.
Over time, my husband and I grew apart as he pursued his dreams as an entrepreneur and I found myself at home, surrounded by young kids, and immersed in a world where a solo bathroom trip was a luxury. Like any mom, I loved my children, but I felt a nagging sensation that I was supposed to be doing more.
In 2019, I made a decision: I could either let fate write my story or I could take a more active role and write my own story, on my own terms.
I got clear on what I wanted. I set goals. I improved my fitness, I improved my nutrition. I invested in my relationships in a way I had not previously. And it paid dividends! I came to the realization that I had not been taking 100% responsibility for my life or the things I wanted or needed.
I am a certified nutritionist with a decade in the fitness space who has personally dealt with infertility, miscarriage, pregnancy, being a stay-at-home mom, being a working mom, homeschooling, being a frustrated wife, you name it! I want my clients to learn from my mistakes and experiences and begin creating a life you love NOW! The first step is to take control of your health, fitness, and how you show up for yourself!
