Kriss Brooks


Kriss Brooks is a nationally recognized fitness consultant, personal trainer, businesswoman, journalist and community organizer. As the founder and CEO of Options Personal Training Center, she has run international classes and demonstrations from California to the West Indies, to the Junior League and to the corporate world as well.

She holds a B.A. from U.C. Berkeley, an M.B.A. from California State University and Pepperdine, and is a feature writer on wellness for a range of publications.

She competed as a bodybuilder from 1982-1986, winning Ms. Oakland, Ms. Alameda County, the Warner Classic Northern California Championship, the Northwestern American Gold Cup and the West Coast Superbowl. Her elegant signature posing style has made her in demand from California to Paris.

Brooks' passion for fitness extends widely: she is the winner of several highly competitive local and federal grants to bring strength and fitness training to women and girls in under-served communities. The power of her training style is testimonial to the fact that she has had some of the same clients for more than thirty years, coaching them through changing lives and lifestyles.

She is not presenting a quick fix, nor is she obsessive about her diet and training. As she says, "Just like those I train and mentor, exercise is not what drives me. What drives all of us is to be better--NOT PERFECT--one day at a time, to get our lives in shape and be in our lives."

Strength is Ageless is the most recent accomplishment for Brooks, using the personal computer to bring accessible and affordable world-class coaching to every corner of the globe.

Usually, they've got impeccable fitness and physical power, and as an athlete and an author I know how they maintain and improve their strength. But it is the mind that is really what runs the race. For many athletes, self-determination has always been taken for granted until, one day: they reach their own individual wall of fear.
