Being healthy isn’t about who works out the hardest or who eats the cleanest. It’s about who consistently invests time and energy into practicing healthy habits and thought processes daily. This is Chrysten’s Crocket’s philosophy. Chrysten is today’s guest, and was one of the very first models for Rebellia! Chrysten is a fitness guru, nutrition coach, bodybuilder and badass babe who teaches women how to navigate finding balance while pursuing a healthy lifestyle. Her entire philosophy centers around empowering women through knowledge and practice and, in this episode, she explains why she believes that it’s so important to take step back and recognize that we only have one body. We have to take care of it, and our mind is a big part of that. Chrysten also shares her definition of balance, the importance of delegating, and evidence-based coaching, as well as making sacrifices for our fitness goals, doing what makes us happy, and celebrating the milestones along the way.

“Sometimes we can get confused in what balance means because we might be comparing it to someone else’s balance and say, ‘Oh well, I don’t have time to have a me day or take vacation,’ but that might not be balance for you. I’ve had to learn that myself. Balance doesn’t always mean 50/50.” — @getfitwithchrys [0:10:43]
“I think it’s so important to just take a step back and recognize that we only have one body, we have to take care of it, and our mind is a big part of that.” — @getfitwithchrys [0:16:10]
“For anybody out there who is maybe in a long distance relationship or just trying to coincide with their partner, communication is definitely key.” — @getfitwithchrys [0:33:31]
“That happiness comes from within. Celebrating wins, being proud of yourself, recognizing what is going to make you happy internally first, is huge, because you’ll never fill that with anything.” — @getfitwithchrys [0:39:31]
