Krystal Salvent

Krystal Salvent a.k.a. Killer Krystal, is a certified Personal Trainer, Group Fitness Instructor, Cycling Instructor and Run Coach - we can see why she describes herself as fitness badass! 

Having graduated from New York University's College of Dentistry in 2009, Krystal has built a career around her two passions. First, as a dental hygienist in private practices across NYC, and secondly turning her love for healthy living and fitness into a career.

Read on to find out how Krystal is styling the AM White Maxi this Fall...

AM: Tell us a little bit about yourself and your typical day?

KS: I am a seasoned dental hygienist turned fitness maven. I got certified a few years back, as a personal trainer, group fitness instructor and also model. Life is very much on the go. Juggling coaching, casting calls, shooting and making time for myself gets tricky but I love it!

AM: What inspired you to become a personal trainer and group fitness instructor?

KS: I LOVE fitness. Fitness has helped me mentally, physically, and spiritually awaken a person that stayed quite because she was afraid of failing, often living in the what if’s. It’s given me a platform where there is no hiding. It’s me all the time, and it’s pretty liberating. Living on the other side of fear, has been so freeing. That is what I share with my clients, that it is okay to be vulnerable. It’s how we grow.

AM: You mentioned that you also do corporate fitness classes, tell us more!

KS: It’s one of my very rewarding opportunities. Because of the nature of the corporate environment, I stress and bring team into their work space. I am a big proponent of working collaboratively. It builds comradery, which help make their work day easier to handle under high stress conditions.

At the corporate office, I train but also educate them on how to move functionally. Most of the clients sit for many hours at a time. I incorporate different movements and stretches that they can do at their desk in addition to part of their workouts, without feeling like they are taking time away from their work. I also teach spin a few times a week to the team, where we ride hard, to kick ass beats and have fun doing it!

AM: Tell us about this outfit! Which​ pieces did you pair your AM gear with, and why​?

KS: I love dresses! I paired the Alexis Mera white maxi with my favorite tights, Nike Blazers, my warm cozy winter coat by Marmot and a LuLulemon tote.

AM: Where are 3 places you’d wear this outfit?

KS: I’d wear this everywhere. The great part of this piece is that I can wear it all year round. It’s an easy beach cover up, spring dress with a sweater and booties or a winter white dress as shown above. It’s just so versatile.

AM: What do you love most about your new AM piece?

KS: How incredibly versatile it is!!

AM: How would you describe your style in two words?

KS: Functional and Chic

AM: If you were deserted on an island, what one item would you want with you?

KS: The photo option on my iPhone, so I can live daily all my great memories.

AM: Favorite sinful treat food?

KS: Soft baked Cookies

AM: One place in the world you would love to visit?

KS: Australia

AM: Favorite yoga pose?

KS: Savasana or Corpse Pose

AM: Favorite song to work out to?

KS: I have way to many, music is life!

AM: One food you could not live without?

KS: Nut butters!

AM: Three things that are always in your gym bag?

  1. Simple Cleansing Facial Wipes
  2. Degree motion sense Dry Spray in Sexy Intrigue
  3. Single serving pack of Trader Joe’s Omega 3 mix

AM: Favorite way to start the day?

KS: Saying “Thank you” out loud for another opportunity at life and a cup of Café Bustelo (Cuban coffee I make a home) . I don’t leave home with my Cuban coffee!
