Kristi Tauti - Coach,Trainer, Mom, & Wife

Kristi has an easy going attitude but an intense commitment and drive for success.  This is portrayed in her training style, in the gym, and with her team.  Expectations are set high but only through Kristi’s complete passion for helping others reach their potential.

Born and raised in Dayton Oregon, Kristi is the middle child of 5 girls. This competitive family environment set the foundation for her career and success as an IFBB Professional Figure Athlete, giving her the mentality to train hard, push the limits, sweat it out, and get a little dirty.  She attributes all of this in helping her sculpt her physique. 

Kristi’s parents also raised her to have a strong faith and high standards.  This foundation has allowed her to always be true to herself and to lead by being a positive example in her daily life and with her family.  

Growing up Kristi didn’t think much of sitting still. and was always very active. In high school she participated in volleyball, basketball, softball and track. Due to her strong work ethic and athletic ability, she made the All State Teams in each of these sports.  In addition to athletics, she also played flute in the concert band, alto sax in jazz band, and sang in choir. 

After high school Kristi earned her Bachelor’s Degree in Exercise Sport Science at BYU in Hawaii.  It was here where she also met and married her husband Pati, and began her career in Figure Competitions.  After living Hawaii for 5 years, Kristi and Pati decided to start a family and moved back to Oregon where Kristi’s family is located.  Just two short weeks after moving to Oregon Kristi learned she was pregnant with her daughter Taliamalefiafia (Talia).

Her true love was throwing the Javelin in track & field and the power and discipline required for that sport. It was that very sport that led her to weight training, making remarkable changes to her strength and agility. In 2007 she met Kristi Tauti and began her journey as a figure competitor. She is Kristi’s longest client and remains active in the sport, traveling all over the U.S. to compete. It is this long dedication to fitness that helps Hannah motivate her clients in and out of the gym. She understands that to talk the talk, you must walk the walk.
