Please don't trust the 1-B 2-M 3-I. I got down on myself because I lost 1lb, but was immediately encouraged by yours truly Chris Omni who said Guuuurllll you dropped 20 pts on your blood glucose yes I missed the big picture. I am a big bone butterfly so my weight will not reflect my health in some people eyes but in my eyes I am HEALTHY. U2TC.
Thank you, Chris Omni, for all that you do. You give light, hope, perspiration and inspiration, and all the lives you touch are healthier, in body and spirit!”
"I was introduced to MAKIN’ MOVES in October 2014, at what was my lowest point in a very long time. My stress and anxiety levels were so high that something had to change…there was no way life could continue as it was, and I was ready to just walk away from it all and hide. For me, finding MAKIN’ MOVES and being welcomed into the dysFUNctional family has been so much more than just the free, fun, family-friendly fitness experience. It was finding a welcoming environment where I have been accepted as me, no pretenses, no perfect body in designer workout gear, but me with my baggage…emotional and physical. It has been a journey of discovery. I’ve learned to trust others, and I’m also learning to love myself and my new family unconditionally, and to celebrate our collective successes along the way. We take our queues from Chris Omni, the engine that dreams and drives MAKIN’ MOVES. Chris, your energy and passion (and compassion) fuels us to believe in ourselves and each other. Your influence changes my life for the better every day. I cannot imagine life without you or my MAKIN’ MOVES Mamas, Sisters, Brothers, and Cupcakes.
As a personal trainer and fitness leader, Chris aims to make fitness accessible to everyone. She cultivates a safe environment that draws a diverse crowd. We are different sizes, ages, colors. She celebrates our stories and our efforts. She lifts, pushes and encourages. She enjoys working in the space where you don’t expect to see a personal trainer.
You’ve motivated me and I wanted to say THANKS! I ran this morning. That’s right, ME! I’m sure I looked like a big blob running down the street but oh well! It felt great. Thanks for all you do.
Hey. It's actually Tierra using my mother's FB. When my Mom first started coming to Makin' Moves, I went begrudgingly because I was afraid that my friends would find out and they would make fun of me. Ms. Chris Omni helped me understand that when you want to do something good to help yourself just "DO YOU" and don't let anyone hate on your healthy swag! Now I'm on Facebook cheezin' with my fam! #MAKINMOVES #DOYOU"
I consider myself one of her positive outcomes, as my work with her as a student has resulted in the longest period I've been physically and emotionally able to sustain exercise as a part of my life. I have both morbid obesity and severe degenerative osteoarthritis as obstacles, yet Chris’s ingenuity has shown me how to effectively modify activity and creatively improve my health.
With your message of love and self acceptance.....This song made me think of your class and I could help but dance!
"I enjoy and appreciate Chris - very inspirational and helpful!"
MAKIN' MOVES. The exercises are wonderful. The people are enjoyable. Chris is unbelievable and a great person and teacher."
I've aonly attended two MAKIN' MOVES sessions but I have a very positive opinion of the program. Chris does a great job! High energy and great motivation."
