Hillsboro Woman Loses 100 Pounds!

She committed herself to turning her life around, and In just over a year, 24 year old Kristin Baehr is 100 lbs. lighter thanks to healthy eating and CrossFit workouts.

"Last year I decided that I should really get my health and weight on track", said Kristin in April 2010. At that point she was already 87lbs. lighter, and just 13 pounds away from her goal.

In May '09, at an all-time high of 270lbs, Kristin began attending classes at CrossFit Hillsboro one day per week. After a few months of that, she decided she was ready for more and since then, has consistently committed to 5-8 classes/week. "Classes were the hardest, most gut-wrenching workouts I'd ever heard of, and they actually wanted me to participate! I thought they were crazy. Turns out it was the best thing that ever happened to me."
From June to September, Kristin lost approximately 40 pounds and went from a size 22 to an 18/16, with her short-term goal to reach under 200lbs. by Christmas '09 (a weight she says she hasn't seen since 9th grade).
"Not only does Pacific Personal Training/CrossFit Hillsboro work your butt off, they also help you out a lot with nutritional information by occasionally holding workshops or just talking to you about it in a workout. They were always available for me and I really appreciate that about them."
Kristin has inspired many of her co-workers to attend classes with her as well.

Watching Kristin transform her life has been absolutely awe-inspiring to us and to her fellow CrossFitters. She never misses a day and gives 100% to each workout. She has reached an amazing milestone and gives hope to our guests everyday that anything is possible when you set your mind to it.

Way to go, KBAEHR!  You are an amazing woman.
