WHYIFIGHT: Meagan and Krystyna
WHYIFIGHT – What’s your name, where are you from, and what do you do?
Krystyna – Born and raised in Western MA but Southie for life for about 6 years now. I am a real estate agent, …please tell me you want to buy a condo!?
Meags – I grew up in NY and have lived in Boston for 5 blissful years (minus winter 2015 J)! When I’m not doing activities in spandex, I’m a Project Manager for Harvard.
What makes you a fighter?
Krystyna – If I say I want something I am going to get it. Period. I will fight for a way to make it happen.
Meags – I’m competitive to my core. It’s how I was raised and I’m always competing against myself. Give me a challenge and I’ll conquer it.
What do you fight for?
FUN & skinny arms…kidding but not really. No matter how hard life or the workout gets we don’t take ourselves too seriously, keep laughing and keep moving forward. We believe that “phitness” is a lifestyle and the key is always having fun. If you’re not having fun, you’re never going to stick to it… so you better love the fight…and the burn!
What inspires you to take the hits and keep on fighting?
We inspire each other, it’s why we do what we do and share it via IG. While training for the NYC Marathon, we mentally prepared to hit “the wall” but always focused on the finish line. There was no way in hell either of us was going to stop and let the other person down. When one of us is slacking, the other is always there to help motivate. We keep each other accountable, we’re each other’s alarm clock, reality check and biggest fan!
If you could fight side-by-side with one person, past or present, who would it be?
Meags – obviously Krystyna, we’re besties.
Krystyna – Beyonce…duh.
What is your Fight Fuel?
Red velvet cupcakes – Iced Coffee from Bells Market – Avocados – Loco Guac and Tacos – Tequila on the rocks. Post-race it’s all about the cupcakes…Krystyna’s tradition is to always bring post-race funfetti cupcakes…#skinnyarms diet!
What is your Fight Song?
“B*tch Betta Have my Money” by Rihanna… but if we’re out running we’d rather chat and laugh than listen to music. Sometimes Kittie K raps which is priceless.
What’s your favorite EverybodyFights class?
BAGSxBODY is a consistent favorite but we’re currently obsessed with BODYxSUSPENSION with Anthony. Lately we’ve been on a mission for that long, lean, yogie bear body – work in progress for sure! The class is incredibly tough and when Kittie K starts laughing Meags is sure to follow and then fall out of pose.
Who is your favorite EverybodyFights Trainer, and why?
We’d never tell 😉 But it does change month to month.
How do you Fight It Forward?
By always sharing our journey, both the highs and lows. We love volunteering at races, cheerleading, fundraising and sharing our passion with anyone who will listen. Sometimes people don’t listen, and we tell them anyway.
