Trista got started as a group fitness instructor when she was 5 years old, making VHS Barbie workout videos in her basement.
She grew up a dancer and earned her degree in choreography from Columbia College Chicago. Throughout her career, she’s alternated between ballet shoes and Nikes — pursuing her passions as dancer, trainer, runner, and coach. Present day, Trista is a local Chicago Nike trainer who’s been teaching at top group and personal training studios across the city for the better part of a decade.
As well versed as Trista is in all things movement, nothing could prepare her for the ultimate test of strength and stamina — motherhood. Most recently Trista earned a certificate in Postnatal Corrective Exercise because she’s passionate about helping new moms feel their best through pregnancy and the postpartum period.
When Trista isn’t hyping us up at Rumble, she’s usually running after her daughter, embracing the “mom jean” trend, or looking for those old VHS tapes from back when TikTok was only for cuckoo-clocks.
