Hi! We are Chris Sigouin and Cristin Kynett, co-owners/founders of Level Up Health & Fitness. Opening up a personal fitness training studio has been a long time dream for both of us and with our combined expertise along with knowing we have something to offer the people of Flathead Valley that no one else can, we decided to take the leap to do what we do best!
Please read our bios to learn more about us. We can't wait to meet you!
I have been in the health and fitness industry for over 15 years. Starting in massage therapy in 2005, physical therapy as a licensed PTA in 2010, personal training in 2012, and becoming a Champion - Performance Specialist in 2018.
For myself the study of health and fitness, the human body, it’s mechanics and movement, how to build muscle, increase flexibility, decrease pain, improve athletic performance, and improve the quality of ones life, isn’t just my career, it’s my hobby as well. It’s what a think about as I fall asleep every night, and it’s in the videos I watch, podcasts I listen to, and books I read when I’m relaxing in the evenings. You could almost say I’m obsessed. At 40 years old I am in the absolute best shape of my life, stronger, faster and more flexible than I have ever been. In fact I have even competed in my first amateur MMA fight, which having been a lifelong martial arts practitioner in some form or another has been a dream of mine since the sport began.
I'm an ISSA Certified Personal Trainer, ACE Certified Health Coach and I have a Pn1 Nutrition Certification. I have been actively working in the health and fitness world for 4.5 years but I had quite the journey before I developed a love for this career!
After growing up as an overweight child and eventually hitting 225 lbs in my early 20's, I knew I had to make a change. Not only for myself but for my family and future children. I successfully lost 90 lbs in about a year and a half but struggled to keep it off for many years after. My weight was fluctuating up and down constantly with every fad diet that would help me lose weight rapidly but then the weight would come back on just as quickly when I returned to my old habits.
In early 2016, I knew this yo-yo lifestyle had to come to a stop and I had to learn how to make a life long change. At that time I decided to learn to lift weights for the first time in my life along with flexible dieting. I finally lost my last 30 lbs and have been able to keep it off ever since.
I quickly discovered my passion for exercise and healthy eating and knew I had to teach others that they can do the same and feel as good as I do now. This is what lead me into obtaining my Health Coaching Certification followed by a Personal Training Certification and now a Precision Nutrition Certification.
I absolutely love what I do and nothing brings me more joy than to help others feel good! I consider myself an expert in nutrition and coaching and I can understand the struggles many encounter when trying to make a lifestyle change because I have been there myself.
I’m a certified personal trainer and nutrition specialist, with a focus in fitness behavioral coaching. My goal in all I do is to help women and men discover strength in themselves both physically and mentally. I want to help get their mindset right so their body can follow. If your goal is weigh loss and lifestyle coaching or body building and growing muscle, I want to be a resource to you!
