“I trust myself the most in the areas of my life in which I’ve taken the most action.” -said by yours truly. Hi, I’m Christina Montalvo, and my life can be categorized by a series of shitting my pants- and taking big action anyway. Action produces results- no matter which way you spin it.

Can You Make Money Without Selling Fat Loss?

I betcha can’t make money without selling fat loss. Just kidding- you actually can. In fact, I lost money every year in business or broke even at best when I *was* selling fat loss.

Having Someone In Your Corner Can Make All The Difference

To the women who might quit tomorrow to move to an island to sell coconuts instead because “it shouldn’t feel this hard” and “I should have been there by now”… Don’t let ‘em lie to you.

153: Knee Health and Weight Loss

This episode begins to scratch the surface of how crucial a sound understanding of exercise science is. Here’s a secret:general/family doctors don’t specialize in movement, pain science, exercise, muscles, etc. They just don’t.

“HIRE ME SO YOU CAN BE LIKE ME”

Feel familiar? I used to do it all the time. I stalked women on Instagram who I wanted to look like- and for the low cost of my health, sanity, and hormones- I COULD! This is where it gets juicy… I did the same thing for business. I stalked women on Instagram who were biz coaches who had the life …
