Kristine has been a part of the Xtreme family since 2007 as the parent of a gymnast, but began teaching classes in 2019. She attended Kansas State University, and is currently a middle school science teacher by day, and a preschool gymnastics coach by night!  She has two teenagers at home and spends her day with teens at school, so being with the littles at night is a great change of pace for her. In fact, her favorite part of her job is just being able to interact and personally get to know all of the little ones she has the pleasure of working with. Outside of the gym, she travels for her daughter’s gymnastics, reads, and loves to spend time at the lake. The core value she identifies most with is staying healthy and active. “As you get older, being healthy and active will allow you the quality of life you want. When you feel good, you project this positive attitude onto those around you.”
