Christy Chen - Indianapolis Fitness And Sports Training

Christy Chen

Fun fact about me, I like to fly under the radar.

During college at Indiana University in Bloomington, I thought I’d be a TV news reporter. After my first internship working at a local news station, I quickly realized that I’d much rather put others in front of the camera — which is how I fell into my first career in the field of public relations.

I absolutely loved everything about public relations, and never expected to find a second career that sparked that fire in me, but I did.

Fitness has always been a passion of mine. I still remember leading my first Spinning class nearly 18 years ago riding the high that comes from watching others push past physical and mental barriers.

Naturally, my love of Spinning led me to explore other areas of fitness picking up certifications in other group exercise formats, and obtaining my ACE CPT (Certified Personal Trainer), NASM CNC (Certified Nutrition Coach) certifications and NASM Physique and Bodybuilding Coach Certification.

When I began my own fitness journey, I was addicted to all the group exercise classes – Spinning, BodyPump, cardio kickboxing, HIIT style classes and bootcamps.

And truthfully, they were a blast!

However, I never saw my hard work and sweat manifest into a body that looked strong and lean until I discovered strength training.

I’ve been lifting heavy things for the last 6 years and sometimes compete in bodybuilding shows in the bikini division. While I love the discipline that comes with training for a show, my true joy comes from watching my clients crush their own fitness goals!

It’s my passion to help individuals of all ages and abilities to get fit and improve their wellbeing through smart training practices and healthy nutrition habits.

I provide one-on-one personal training, one-on-one nutrition coaching, group nutrition coaching and strength training program design.My husband Tony and I have been married for 13 years and have two beautiful children: Xander (age 9) and Lucy (age 8).

I find myself truly at peace when I’m in nature: hiking, kayaking, biking, camping and gardening (even though most of my plants fear me, lol). I’m a self-proclaimed nerd who loves all things fantasy – Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, Game of Thrones, Star Wars and more.

Other hobbies include reading, cooking, baking and wine tasting.
