Since our gym The X-Project has moved into their new space (and it is amazing I may add), the two groups of members – original X-Project members and members of the gym that used to be in this space – have combined. So, not only is everybody getting to meet new gym-goers, but we’re also getting to know new trainers as well.
In one of my previous posts, I talked about how I REALLY was hesitant to make this change because I loved our gym routine with our male trainers – Michael and Kyle.
But, having female trainers added to the mix has been such a pleasant change! The male trainers have always facilitated a tough, no-excuses atmosphere (and, not gonna lie, eye candy is an added bonus).
But, now, with female trainers involved in our classes, we get the best of both worlds!
Females just tend to be more sensitive in general, so it’s SO nice to be able to go to a female trainer for advice and guidance, and a little extra TLC. Plus, girl power is just so much fun to experience!
Not only do our trainers at The X-Project guide us through our work-out and cheer us on along the way, but they are also there as resources. They’re always so willing to share their knowledge and advice on anything and everything that’s health and fitness-related.
So, Pam and I decided to bring our readers into the gym, virtually, by posting interviews with our trainers, in order to share the wealth of information that we are privy to at The X-Project!
Pam and I chose Chrissy Makosy as our first
victim interviewee! Chrissy welcomed us into the new gym “digs” with open arms and always has a beautiful smile on her face. She has offered up lots of advice to us on everything from what protein powder tastes the best to how to modify the way I’m walking for increased efficiency!
So, without further ado – I give you:

Chrissy will be 47 years old in August, and lives in Ijamsville with her hubby Doug, and 3 sons: Tyler 18, Jake 17, Kevin 14 and 2 Black Labs: Jett and Molly.
