Member Spotlight – Kristin Upwood 

Don’t let her pint-sized exterior fool you, Kristin has a huge personality! She’s sarcastic and witty, jovial, yet super tough. The life of the party, she can dance like a Fly Girl – she even split her pants while busting her moves at the CFVB Christmas party. In true Kristin form, she tied a sweater around her waist and kept on dancing. She brings life to whatever class she attends, laughing with friends and striking up conversation with new members. Heeeeere’s Kristin…

Favorite Cheat Meal: wine, nachos, wine, brownies, wine and ice crew. Oh…and wine.

Hobbies: Crossfit, running, traveling, dancing, reading, snuggling with the cats, “pretending I’m going to do all of the things I pin to my Pinterest boards.”

Little known fact: “I used to play ice hockey (right wing). I’ve jumped out of a perfectly good plane. Also, I have a strange obsession with the French Revolution. Marie Antoinette is my spirit animal.”
