Cristal Barnes

Lawrence Group Fitness Coordinator

Cristal is a high-energy, motivating, and welcoming presence in our Lawrence locations. Cristal has been part of the Lawrence fitness scene for over 20 years, beginning her fitness career as an instructor while studying education at KU. Her career took her from Parks & Rec to a Corporate position with 24 Hour Fitness before bringing her back to instruction and training with Genesis when they opened their doors in Lawrence in July 2011.
Cristal has an almost unnatural love of fitness and movement and the ability of the human body to overcome any obstacle given enough time, talent, and tenacity, to which Cristal can attest as someone who grew up with severe scoliosis that required surgery and the implantation at age 17 of rods that run the length of her spine. Despite carrying around 5 extra pounds of metal, Cristal teaches an extensive array of fitness classes. Her current & previous certifications include:
•    AFAA & ACE Primary Aerobic & Personal Trainer
•    AEA Aquatic Instructor
•    AFAA Group Step
•    Kick-Fit Kickboxing
•    Resist-a-Ball Modules 1-5
•    AAAI/ISMA Yoga Phase I & II
•    Powerhouse Institute Pilates Mat & Advanced Mat
•    Healthways Silver Sneakers & Silver Splash
•    BTS Group Power, Group Ride & Group Centergy

When not teaching Cristal is a Pacer for The Runner’s Edge in KC, pacing half & full marathons. She is currently pursuing membership in the 50 States club – with a personal goal of running 50 marathons in 50 states before she turns 50 (as of this posting she is half-way there – 25 states down, 25 to go! =0).

Cristal is married to fireman & para-triathlete Earl Barnes and is mother to beautiful daughter Cayman, who loves to run with her mom & swim with her dad.
