Dissident Spotlight: Kristin Walston

What made you first get into fitness?

I've always enjoyed fitness but in the past year decided to go hard and heavy and get into the best shape I've ever been in. I'm Currently A NPC figure competitor and going to nationals in November . Going for Pro!  so I'm in the gym every single day with no days off.. and I love it!

What motivates you to show up every day?

I love seeing results and I love seeing myself grow — that's what motivates me.

What are your health and fitness goals for the future?

I'm Currently an NPC figure competitor and going to nationals in November. Going for pro! I'm in the gym every single day with no days off — and I love it!

What is your favorite exercise?

I love working out every body part, but if I had to choose my absolute favorite I would say legs. I love legs!

What made you choose Dissident Gym Wear and how do you relate to the DISSIDENT brand's message?

Let's be real for a second, showing up to the gym in hot gym wear makes everything better!! That's why I love, love, LOVE Dissident Gym Wear! It's a tough/sexy brand all in one. The brand alone represents strength and tenacity. And that's something that I relate with.

What is your favorite Dissident piece?

My favorite piece is the “F*CK AVERAGE” shirt because I'm everything but average!

What is your proudest fitness achievement?

Becoming a figure competitor is one of my highest achievements in the fitness world that I'm very proud of. 

What is your advice to anyone seeking to improve their health and fitness lifestyle?

To all who are wanting to get fit and stay healthy, it's never to late! Don't give up — stay focused. I promise you that you will see results and once you see results you will become addicted! You will love the way you look and feel! Exercise is the fountain of youth and we ALL want to feel and stay young forever.

What is your favorite quote?

My favorite saying is "teamwork makes the dream work" — and it's totally true! When you have a good support system behind you, you can achieve anything and accomplish all your goals — easier and faster! So get a gym buddy, show up to the gym in hot gym gear and kick some A$$. That's one thing you'll never regret! And it always get better! Start believing in yourself and everything else will fall into place.

A particularly frustrating part of struggle is the ability that it has to stop us dead in our tracks IF we allow it. The potential embarrassment of failure freezes us. The possibility for rejection discourages us. The idea of disappointment makes us check out of the game.

Our world today is a convection of deception, constantly the bullshit is on the rise, and the truth, subsurface and disregarded. We must hold true and steady the course through the lies and contradictions. We have to hold the line between our own lives, and the world that tries to breach in.

Gratitude is something we could all benefit from. Gratitude means thankfulness, counting your blessings, noticing simple pleasures, and acknowledging everything that you receive. It means learning to live your life as if everything were a miracle, and being aware on a continuous basis of how much you’ve been given. Gratitude shifts your focus from what your life lacks to the abundance that is already present.
