The story begins in mid 2011 - I was newly married, living in Chicago (I'm from New York).  About a year before this, I was living in Manhattan with my dream job in the corporate offices at Ralph Lauren. Plucking myself from a job I loved to a city I knew nothing about was both challenging and isolating. I took a step back and thought about what made me truly happy - fitness! I was a runner and a group fitness junkie, with a desire to motivate others to feel what I feel after a healthy sweat.

I quit my job on a Monday (that I had only been in for 8 weeks) - I simply couldn't wait to begin again . On my last day they asked what I was going to do; my response was, "I don't know but it's not this". How could I possibly think this is a good idea? I started applying to front desk positions because I didn't know what I wanted to do... yet. But I love taking group fitness classes and I told EVERYONE I saw that someday I wanted to teach.

That "someday" happened later that year - when a cycling sub didn't show up to a class at David Barton Gym. The manager came up and asked if I was certified - I said no. He asked if I would be willing to teach - I said YES! I frantically called  my husband, Mike, and asked him to bring me some clothes and begged him to stay for class.

I'll be honest, I had no idea what I was doing! But 45 minutes later, I survived. And I WAS HOOKED. I got certified through Schwinn, AFAA, and NASM. I auditioned and became an instructor for Flywheel Chicago. When we moved to California in 2013, I taught for Equinox, taught up and down the Southern California coastline, and later managed their Palos Verdes club.

We now live back in New York and with over 9 years of teaching under my belt, I've been featured in Women's Health, Pop Sugar Fitness, on iFit's streaming platform, Carbon38, Revolve, and more. I added TRX, RRCA Level 1 Running Coach, and PRONatal Pre/Post-natal exercise specialist to my certifications.  I also have 2 young daughters that are 13 months apart (yikes!). In 2020, the teaching dynamic is different and getting into a classroom simply isn't possible. However, teaching is. I have class concepts running through my veins and a desire to share my passion with others. Welcome to Kristina Earnest On Demand! A place where we can sweat, build, and grow together.
