MOTM #232: Doing the Thing with Christina Montalvo

Monday, July 27th, 2020

Friends. I have the perfect guest on the podcast this week. Christina Montalvo is just like you and me—she wanted to do the thing, so she did it. She is resourceful, she is resilient, and she fits in just fine here.

Christina started her personal training career in a big-box gym, working insane hours and never making the impact she wanted to make; she knew there had to be a better way. Fast forward one single car garage and a constant resolve to prove her naysayers wrong, now Christina owns the only woman-focused, body positive, strength and conditioning gym in the Chicago area. And not only that… she is a business coach for personal trainers looking to get out of the rat race, and hosts a podcast focused on health, business, and mindset.

The one thing Christina wants you to know is that there is no difference between yourself and all the successful people you see. If you want what they have, you can have it. Put in the work, hone in on your own resiliency, and save yourself. No one else is going to do it for you.
