In addition to the fitness classes, Faithfully Fit Group Fitness Center provides spiritual, emotional, and nutritional support in the form of monthly workshops and programs in an effort to help our members reach and maintain their goal of achieving and living a healthy lifestyle.

Faithfully Fit Group Fitness Center is centrally and conveniently located in downtown Lorain, Ohio (directly across from The Palace Theater) offering class times to meet a variety of daily schedules.

Owner/Operator Kristie Duffy has over ten years experience in the fitness industry and Group Fitness, teaching group fitness classes for Bally Total Fitness, The YMCA of the USA, and World Gym. She is a Group Fitness Instructor, AFAA Certified Personal Trainer, Workshop Presenter, and Independent Team Beachbody Coach.

She is a graduate from the University of Akron with a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology, and is a former Family Intervention Case Manager, Youth Advocate, and Intervention Specialist with a genuine love for people. Her experience combined with a genuine desire to help people meet their personal goals fosters the caring and supportive atmosphere that Faithfully Fit Group Fitness Center provides.

Along with her education and professional experience, Kristie has the personal experience of being overweight and not living a healthy lifestyle. As an overweight child, teenager, and young adult, Kristie didn’t eat healthy and didn’t do much physical activity. She had the desire to lose weight, but didn’t have the knowledge or discipline.

She tried a lot of the “lose weight quick fixes” that were on the market. It wasn’t until she graduated from college that she began to exercise the commitment needed to get healthy, and now she is totally committed to living a healthy lifestyle and enjoys empowering others to do the same.


Kristie was born and raised in Lorain, graduate of Lorain City Schools (Admiral King High School)
She is grateful for the opportunity to work with Lorain Community Development and their Downtown Revitalization Program, helping to rebuild our wonderful downtown area while helping the community live a healthy lifestyle.
She also is currently working with Lorain City Schools Adopt-a-School program, adopting 3 schools (Academic Enrichment Academy, Credit Recovery Academy, New Beginnings Academy) where she volunteers and teaches physical fitness and healthy lifestyle principles to students, leading them in participating in the President’s Challenge where they can receive the Presidential Active Lifestyle Award for setting healthy eating and physical activity goals.

Kristie also provides nutrition counseling, promoting a 90 day health challenge to help people transform their lives and get healthy through the Body by Visalus program.

And through Team Beachbody Coaching, Kristie provides coaching to help you choose which in-home fitness programs, workout equipment, and nutritional supplements work best for you in working toward your healthy lifestyle goals. No matter what your health and fitness goals are, she will help you find the perfect workout program for

  1. Unfortunately, Kristie Duffy’s Faithfully Fit is no longer downtown. When I walked downtown Sunday morning (7/27/14) her center had been vacated.
