Krista Stryker is an athlete, entrepreneur, author and the founder of 12 Minute Athlete. At 12 Minute Athlete she shares short, efficient HIIT (high intensity interval training) workouts through her blog and app and encourages her followers to find a love of fitness and movement for themselves. But things weren’t always this way.
Growing up, Krista never saw herself as a fit or athletic person. In fact, she was barely able to do three pushups when she started her fitness journey.
Through play and exploration she found her love of HIIT, boxing, gymnastics and many other things such as killer handstands like this:

Fitness and movement is one of my most important priorities in my life. I truly believe the joy of movement is available to everyone if you play to discover what feels good in your body.  And no, it is not too late to try something new and if you are not good at something right away you will get better over time. Major thanks to Krista for showing up and sharing her fitness journey with the world!
We talk about
  • Krista's journey from being able to to do only three pushups to the athlete she is today
  • The importance of having a "growth mindset"
  • Why everyone should have a fitness or movement practice. Fitness is not just for athletes or "special" people.
  • Dealing with challenges when you go on your fitness and movement journey
