You have one of the most beautiful physiques in Hollywood. How has fitness and being physically fit changed your life?
Thank you! Ever since I can remember, I have always been into some kind of exercise or activity that involves fitness. There are so many benefits from being physically fit, like glowing skin, natural energy and looking great. It also gets your “good mood” endorphins going!

How do you stay motivated in your career?
I enjoy what I do, which is very important. I’m always looking for new challenges and ways to push myself out of my comfort zone. I’m definitely a go getter!

You’re NBC’s “1st Look” new host. What can we look forward to this season?
We will be eating, playing and indulging around the country! Everything from the best brunches and dining spots, to unique speakeasys and adrenaline filled activities.

You been a fixture on TV for years, but you’re also an amazing model, which do you have more fun doing?
That’s a tough question. I love modeling because it’s like playing dress up and expressing yourself through different looks and body language toward the camera. However, being on TV is also fun because you get to show your personality and relate to people.

What’s your favorite music to work out to?
I love anything upbeat! I listen to a lot of DJ mixes by Steve Aioki and Tiësto to get me going.

What’s your favorite cheat meal?
I love In-N-Out, it’s so good!

How do you deal with cravings?
I eat whatever I’m craving, but in moderation. Sometimes it’s just the taste you’re craving, and not the entire plate. Don’t deprive yourself.

What does your diet consist of?
I have always eaten pretty healthy. I eat a lot of fish, veggies, fruit, rice, and chicken. Pretty much anything, just in moderation.

What are your 3 favorite exercises?
Pilates – I feel it lengthens you and tones.
Water activities – I think anything in the water is so good for you and fun.
Dance – a dancer’s body is the best!

Which female celebrity’s physique do you admire the most?
I love Sofia Vergara – she has curves, but she is also fit. I also think Gisele Bundchen has an amazing body. She’s healthy and super toned.

What celebrity male’s physique do you find ideal on guys?
David Beckham and Channing Tatum both have amazing bodies! You can tell they care about their physiques, but they aren’t overly buff or bulky.

What supplements would you use or recommend if any?
I take krill oil and vitamin B every day. They’re great for your skin and energy.

What’s next for you?
Right now, I’m traveling the country filming for “1st Look,” which airs January 11 on NBC after Saturday Night Live. I am also the ambassador for Curve Appeal for Men. As for next year, I have two exciting new things I have been working on that I’m super excited about, but I can’t let you in on that quite yet!

Christmas Abbott Gym Crush

Featured in the 2017 Fitness Gurls Swimsuit Issue

Published

on

You can’t say tough without thinking of Christmas Abbott and the achievements under her belt. At 35 years of age, Abbott has become a household name within the fitness and entrepreneurial community. You may have seen her on the cover of Fitness Gurls Magazine or on popular TV shows such as Big Brother (last season), Big Brother: After Dark and a slew of intriguing and hilarious interviews. She’s our Gym Crush.

You were on our cover this year as our Most Inspiring Physique in Sports because you were mostly known for Crossfit. But you also are known for Nascar and now Big Brother! What gives you that confidence that no matter what you do, you’re going to be pretty awesome at it?
First, THANK YOU!!! That was such an amazing award! Confidence is a muscle that needs to be trained and worked at consistently and I have been working on it for a long time. While doing that I committed to try new things and be willing to “fail” as most people perceive. I don’t know what the outcome of my ventures will result in but I do know that I would rather try my hardest and prepare for my best and stumble than not try at all! So if that means that I am pretty awesome at what I take on, then I’ll take it!

Starting so many new projects, are you afraid of making rookie mistakes?
I have always enjoyed creating things and seeing their growth and potential; from businesses to people. It’s a beautiful thing to watch something you imagine come to life. I try my best to do my due diligence on any project that I approach to ensure it is as successful as I can make it within my ability. I often reach out to mentors, friends, and associates to get ruthless feedback in hopes to prevent any “rookie” mistakes. If it does happen, it’s a learning experience!

How was it staying at the Big Brother house… and how’s your foot?
The BB House was like adult summer camp with no phones and no contact with the outside world. It was such a unique and fun experience collectively that I feel really special to have it. The foot is healing. I have surgery soon to take out the hardware from the first surgery and after that, I am on the official road to recovery. It has been a slow and frustrating process but I am keeping positive about it and hopefully showing the world that you can have something tragic happen and still accomplish big things!

Another thing that you’re recently started is your online training platforms, what kind of shape do you need to be in to do your workouts?
BBX is an awesome combination of my workouts that can be done anywhere and for anyone! I know it sounds cliche but its true. All of my BBX’ers get workout videos, online community, downloadable e-books, and exclusive access to my other projects and offers. What I love MOST about the BBX program is that people sign up for a body transformation and they get major results along with a complete confidence transformation! They are such incredible people!

You seem like you’re even busier than ever, do you still have time to train as much as you use to?
Now that I am out of the BB House and getting to use my foot more I am back on a regiment. Even when I couldn’t put weight on my foot I was doing some sort of training to keep my sanity in check but also let my body know I still loved it. Body’s are meant to move! I am not training competition style right now and it looks like that won’t happen until the summer. I am loving my mix of CrossFit Invoke (my gym), spin class, and hot yoga. The combination is so good for my body and spirit.

Tell me what you have going on with Dick’s Sporting good and Second Skin Apparel?
Dick’s Sporting Goods launched their own apparel line, Second Skin. Second Skin is absolutely appropriately named!! They have a compression line and a training line. So I don’t have to go to two different companies for all of my needs! They have been an incredible company to work with and really take my input seriously. The clothes keep up with me, my demands for my body, and feel so darn good!!

Where did you learn so much about business?
HA! I have always been interested in business but it takes a lot of discipline. I didn’t graduate from college and went to work in Iraq as a civilian contractor instead which ultimately became my life college. In Iraq I learned how to be organized, detailed, commitment, and of course CrossFit! Those key skills aligned with passion can create a potent product. I have done a lot of research on whatever I venture into and when possible I leaned on mentors or sought out professional advice. Ultimately, I learned as I went but it wasn’t a “go with the flow” approach. I prepared for all of my projects as much as possible and as they were executed I learned more and more about business over the years.

You’re also an incredible model. How do you stay in such great shape year round?
Ha! Well, thank you again! I don’t consider myself a model rather than an athlete. I workout to help my journey with myself, it fuels me in such a positive way that I cannot get any other way. A healthy combination of fitness, nutrition, and enjoying life can keep you in the best, most positive shape possible. I love the balance it provides and I’m cautious not to get too far into body image that it affects my balance, meaning I enjoy drinks with my girls and holiday foods guilt free!

What’s next for Christmas Abbott? What should we be watching out for next?
I have just launched an amazing supplement company called Bourn Relentless! I wanted to create a line that I loved with all of the things that I would use with the ingredients I would put into my body, so I DID! I am really excited about this launch and the products that I have created so far. Check it out at BOURNRELENTLESS.com

Also, I am in the final phases of a project that has been in the works one way or another for almost five years! CAN is an online coaching nutrition program that is education driven and a one-stop shop for macro calculating, goal tracking, meal resources, workout regiments, and supplements suggestions. It is super user-friendly and will have a ton of support for the client so they feel empowered and educated throughout their entire lifestyle change. I am so proud of this project and what it will do to help people truly understand the fundamentals of nutrition within their lifestyle without feeling helpless, confused, or restricted. CAN will help people make the lifestyle changes they have been wanting! People can sign up through my website ChristmasAbbott.com to get in the know for when it will launch and even an early bird discount for sign ups!

As for life, I am enjoying time with family and friends as much as possible and leaning into an adventure. I have had a lot of personal growth this year and I want to be sure I reflect on it and not take it for granted.
