SOULCORE LEADER – CHRISTINA

Christina Diers, M.S. has been in the fitness industry for over 25 years.  She started teaching classes at the local YMCA when she was in high school, then she taught classes at various locations throughout her college career.  

In 1994, she passed the Exercise Physiologist exam through the American College of Sports Medicine and received a Bachelor of Science in Education with endorsements in Physical Education and English from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.  After teaching high school for a couple of years, she decided to work on her masters and begin personal training. Christina received a Masters of Science in Health Education in 2005 from the University of Nebraska-Omaha.  

As part of her continuing education, she took STOTT Pilates mat training in 2003.  She eventually completed her training through STOTT on the Reformer and was certified in October of 2011. She continued her training on the Cadillac, Stability Chair, and Barrels as well as Injuries and Special Populations training, and passed all examinations required to become a fully certified STOTT Pilates instructor.  

In her career, she has taught a variety of fitness classes including Equipment Pilates, Mat Pilates, Aerial Silks, Core and Strength classes, Preschool fitness, Older Adult Fitness, Pre-Natal Fitness, and more.  She wrote a fitness column for the Fremont Tribune and has had many speaking engagements.  She enjoys sharing her passion for Pilates and healthy living with her clients and she hopes to be a source of information and inspiration to others.

Christina joined the Catholic church as an adult before the birth of her first child.  She had always had a strong Christian faith, but felt joining the Catholic church was important for her marriage and family.  A few years ago, she prayed the Rosary every day during Lent. She enjoyed it so much that she continued to pray it every day, and has ever since. Christina loves getting up early and praying for her family and friends.  So, when a friend of hers introduced her to SoulCore, Christina knew she needed to share it with everyone she knew. SoulCore incorporates two things that she is very passionate about – physical fitness and faith. Christina felt called to share SoulCore with her community because it has strengthened her body as well as her relationship with God. It is a beautiful way to combine physical fitness with spiritual fitness. She loves how it has deepened her relationship with Christ and wants to help others do the same.
