About the author: Kristine McFerren

Kristine McFerren has an extensive background in sports medicine, women’s health and hospital administration. She holds a B.S. in Kinesiology from Texas A&M University and a Master of Science in Physical Therapy from the College of Physicians & Surgeons, Columbia University. In 2004, Kris opened her own private physical therapy practice housed within the Pilates Teacher Training Program of the Kane School of Core Integration in New York City. She completed her full equipment Pilates teacher certification in 2003 and her teacher certification in GYROTONIC in 2004. She added Kettlebell Concepts Teacher Training in the spring of 2004 and is currently a Senior Instructor for Kettle Bell Concepts assisting & teaching their teacher training programs.

Kris continues to be featured on Lifetime TV’s “Real Women” as an example of someone who has a professional career yet continues to pursue a sport she loved and competed in as a child. After a 17 year hiatus, she returned to competitive figure skating and went on to win the 1998 United States Figure Skating Associations Adult National Championship in Silver Ladies. She has since moved on to qualify several times for the Adult National Championships in Gold Ladies as well.

Kris resides in Palm Desert, California where she has her own business, Kristine Marie, LLC located in Studio 150. She enjoys melding her education in traditional physical therapy with her training in Pilates, Gyrotonic and Kettlebells to provide a unique experience in movement/fitness. It is her goal to make the transition from the acute injury stage to a return of your choice of activity as easy as possible. The body is addressed as a whole as opposed to focusing solely on the injury. It is in this manner that you will be better prepared to face the physical demands that come your way and prevent future injuries.
