Fast Fit with 5
Christine King, Founder and CEO of YourBestFit created this simple workout which can be done anywhere, making perfect for busy people on the go! YourBestFit suggests 10 reps of each exercise every other day. One set of these five movements takes only 90 seconds to complete and works the entire body. Imagine if you had only FIVE minutes…you’d complete three circuits! Set your alarm two minutes earlier in the morning and boom, one circuit done! Close your office door for 90 seconds and complete another one, finally finish off the day with one more right before brushing your teeth! As you progress, add 2-3 reps per week and watch your body transform.
Please consult your physician before beginning any type of exercise program. If any movement causes discomfort do not proceed. Always begin exercises slowly and reps cautiously.
FROM TRAGEDY TO TRIUMPH — CHRISTINE KING
Christine King experienced a life-changing incident in July of 1996, when a traumatic Jet Ski accident left her with a broken back. Pulled from the water, Christine repeatedly said “I cannot feel my legs,” and knew she would never walk again. Six months prior to this terrible accident, she was in vigorous training for the Miss Fitness USA Contest. Injuries included an explosion of Christine’s lower lumbar vertebrae. Doctors were unable to say whether she would ever walk again. During emergency surgery, bone was taken from her hip to replace what had burst, and two rods, four pins and a cross bar were inserted to hold her back together. Post surgery, doctors announced the operation was a success. Although her back was repaired, they were still unsure of the amount of nerve damage and internal injuries. They still couldn’t say whether or not Christine would walk again, however, they did say she didn’t die due to her level of physical fitness before the accident.
“Christine King and her staff are knowledgeable, professional and caring. I have trained three times a week for seven years with excellent results. They have helped strengthen my bad back and legs to alleviate chronic pain giving me mobility, balance and the ability to function on a higher level. — KARI S., CLIENT
As Christine lay in her hospital bed with little movement in her legs, the doctor’s positive comments convinced her that she would walk again. During her rigorous rehabilitation, she started to begin feeling in her legs and began the slow process of learning how to stand with a walker, eventually taking her first steps. “After the realization of how important it was to be fit, I decided to dedicate my life to helping others in this endeavor.”
“My strength has improved and my balance has gotten better, and you have shown me the path to continue with my workouts. Thank you for helping me regain some confidence in my abilities.” — BILL B., CLIENT
During her rehabilitation, Christine also studied for and became nationally certified by the American Council on Exercise, and achieved the Post-Rehabilitative and Medical Exercise Specialist designation from the American Academy of Health Fitness and Rehab Professionals. These certifications combined with her Bachelor of Arts in Communications degree from Rhode Island College, prompted Christine to change her career full time to educating people worldwide about the importance of developing healthier lifestyles – and YourBestFit was founded.
