All About Me…

portrait of Chrystal Lofton

Hi! I’m Chrystal Lofton, a health & vitality coach supporting busy mamas who are stuck in that place between sick and healthy, without any clear answers. I help them learn simple ways to restore their health and energy through diet and lifestyle habits.

I’m also a competitive gymnastics judge, so I even though my children are grown now, I still lead a very busy life, and I love every minute of it!

I believe we don’t have to sacrifice what we want to do to protect our health, and we really can have it all! It just takes some balance and prioritizing.

Originally from Louisiana, I now live on a small farm with my husband Kelly in Washington, (plus some dogs, cats, and chickens). We grow wine grapes for commercial use and fruit and vegetables for personal use, and I’m learning how to preserve it all. I love to read and scrapbook (at a crazy-lady level!), and I’m the proud mama of two beautiful adult daughters.
