Christine DeMita

Even as a child, Christine was very active. She started ballet at the age of 4, continuing until the age of 13. She also did tap and gymnastics. In her early 20s, she started into a more holistic lifestyle which included bodybuilding and holistic medicine. Nineteen years ago, she had an opportunity to teach Yoga for the Portage Lakes Fitness Center – and her career in the fitness industry was born!

My specialty is functional fitness, stress management, and holistic lifestyle. Functional fitness is teaching people how to move for everyday life and health. Preparing people for things like knee and hip replacements. Then follow up after they are released from rehab with exercise that will help maintain independence and quality of life. Also, individuals who need a simple approach to get fit – no matter their age. Stress management is learning how to breathe and move in ways that help us emotionally and mentally. A holistic lifestyle marries functional fitness and stress management with healthy eating for a winning combination of optimum health.
