The Russell Family of 4


My name is Christina Russell and I’m happy to have you in my little healthy corner of the web!

Before I started my coaching journey, I went through some roller coaster times.

At 35, I had my miracle baby – the one the doctor’s told me for 12 years that I couldn’t have! A picture perfect pregnancy brought my baby boy into this world. Although I suffered post-partum depression for 13 months following his birth, I would do it again in a heartbeat.

When I returned to work, I hated being away from my family so much. 60+ hour weeks including weekends and holidays really made me miss them but I thought it was the only way.

At 37, we got pregnant again, but we suffered a late miscarriage at 20 weeks which left me devastated. Depression, anxiety, weight gain and body image issues were in full effect. Work was almost impossible to return to and I realized 5 months later that my sadness wasn’t just affecting me…but my entire family!

So April 1st I started a new journey to better myself with a program called DDP YOGA.

Little did I know…it would change my life forever. Watch!

After 5 months on the DDP YOGA program I changed careers and focused on nutrition, personal training, pre/post natal fitness and became a celebrity trainer at the DDP YOGA Performance Center in Atlanta, GA (our new home)! I even wrote 2 cookbooks and an eBook to help others with their own journey to health!

At 40, I had my rainbow baby girl and even though I loved my job running the DDPY Performance Center & teaching every day, I knew I wanted to spend more time with her.

At 43, I am a health and wellness coach and I still enjoy teaching DDPY and having personal training clients. But what I love the most is that I have my own business and I work my own hours and I get to enjoy my family and that is the BALANCE I’ve always wanted!

The best part about being a coach…helping others achieve their own healthy balance and taking those with the drive and motivation to help others and helping them build their own business of changing lives.

Looking forward to enjoying this crazy little thing we call life with all of you!
