KRISTA WEST

ZUMBA INSTRUCTOR, SOCIAL MEDIA MAVEN

For Krista, being active started in her youth. Adventuring with her parents in the mountains of Northern California meant that on any given weekend they might be hiking, canoeing or skiing. An avid runner since she was in middle school, Krista got that runners’ high early, and doesn’t show any intention of hanging up her running shoes anytime soon. But it was attending a Zumba class at CFC that inspired her to add yet another activity to her fitness repertoire.

Krista looks forward to dancing with her Zumba besties twice and week—after all, Zumba’s all about moving to great music and partying with your friends (while burning more calories than you realize). She’ll admit that the toughest part of exercise is getting those workout clothes on and getting out the door—but she’ll also tell you that once you do, you’ll immediately feel better.

When she’s not at CFC, Krista works as an Account Manager and Remote Sensing Scientist for a Colorado-based software company called Intterra. In her free time she enjoys running on the Bayshore Bikeway or hiking with her pup, Abby
