Kristin Taylor

Instructor

Where are you from and where did you grow up?

I was born in Orlando, FL but I grew up in Memphis TN

What brought you to Auburn and what do you do here outside of True40?

I came to Auburn for school and met my husband, Doug, here!  We got married shortly after we graduated and didn't take to long to get back to the city we love! I am the Auburn studio and corporate manager for True40, but I am also a mom to my sweet daughter Charlotte and our chocolate lab Clyde :)

What is the best piece of advice you’ve ever been given?

The best piece of advice I’ve ever gotten is if you have a passion for something, don’t be afraid to pursue it! Even if the results aren’t what you wanted, you gain valuable experience that you can learn from. Both successes and failures have given me confidence and abilities for the job I have now!

Why is fitness important to you?

Fitness obviously improves your body physically but I think it's also important for your mental health.  Exercising can help relax your mind and reduce stress.  Fitness also gives you confidence because you are achieving goals you have set for yourself.

Why would you tell someone to try True40?

True40 is a positive and uplifting atmosphere that encourages you to work with what your given, instead of pressure you to try and be something else.  It provides such a great community and promises you a different full-body workout each time you come in!

If you were stuck on a deserted island, what 3 things would you bring?

My family, the Harry-Potter Series, and some mint chocolate chip ice-cream (and I guess a freezer for it to be kept it in)

What is one thing most people don’t know about you?

I was a competitive gymnast for 12 years.
