Shannon Kramer joins Portland Team Fitness having moved to Portland a bit over a year ago from LA. In LA Shannon was the owner of New Leaf Fitness LA. She created New Leaf Fitness because she wants to help people "turn over a new leaf" in their lives, and she feels that she has been privileged enough to do just that for many, many people. Shannon has been in the fitness industry for 12 years, certified with ACE that entire time. She has studied everything from Nutrition to Sports Conditioning and Stretching. Shannon is a constant student of health and wellness and will be for as long as she lives.

She wants her clients to always feel young, energized, and healthy, by eating right and training in a harmonious way that works WITH your body and not against it.

Christina Buzby

Christina has been a trainer for 8 years and has a bachelors in Kinesiology. She is a triathlete and long-distance runner by nature but has also competed in Bikini and Figure competitions.

She was honored in 2009 to be chosen as one of “The Best Trainers to Pump You Up” by the Austin Chronicle and as "Top Ten Trainers in Austin" by AustinFit Magazine in 2010. In the Austin Chronicle, they described her as “[the trainer] who only looks kind but will work your tush to the tailbone.” That is the truth. Don’t be fooled by her sweet face - she has a 2nd degree black belt in Shotokan karate. She prides herself on giving tough yet safe workouts. Proper form is the number one concern with all clients. Christina loves showing people how hard they can train and not hurt themselves, and she loves making an impact in people's lives by helping them realize they are capable of reaching any goal they desire.

Christina believes when someone hires a personal trainer they want someone who is knowledgeable and will hold them accountable to their goals. She takes this part of her job seriously. The hours she sees her clients for their workouts together are the easiest hours of the week for the client. It’s the other 23 hours in a day that are the challenge. The other 23 hours of the day are what separate the good trainers from the great ones. Christina strives to be great, and expects the same greatness from her clients.
