Christine Bongiovanni

My passion is empowering people to create a better version of themselves — not just physically, but mentally too. Always an athlete, I struggled with society’s image of the ideal woman and spent much of my life dealing with that struggle. Despite that, as an adult I found the sport of bodybuilding and fell in love with it. It was an outlet for my athleticism once I had outgrown team sports.

Through hard work and determination, I earned my pro card in 1994. At that time, there was only Bodybuilding; no figure, fitness or bikini for women to compete in and it was very much a male dominated sport. A female bodybuilder wasn’t exactly considered glamorous.

I took my 10 years of local, national and pro competition experience made a business out of helping others shape their physiques for the stage. With my chemical engineering education, I was fascinated by the way different bodies would respond to different diet and workout plans. But over the course of 28 years of training, I’ve learned that it isn’t just about the body, it’s also about the mental process and as my business evolved, that’s where I found my passion.

Today, through seminars and fitness summits, I love to focus on guiding athletes to the stage and then back off the stage in a healthy and happy way.

Shandi Grimsley

I grew up watching the hard work that my mom put into bodybuilding. I watched her train hard, ate rice cakes and broccoli with her, hung out at the gym and wished her luck whenever she went out of town to compete.

Years later, I watched her take on a new role as an NPC competition promoter. I helped her stuff envelopes to mail out entry forms, staple and fold event programs and manned a concessions booth on show day.

After graduating from college with degrees in Anthropology and Journalism, I decided that I wanted to work with my mom to help make competitors feel special when they stepped on our stage. While I myself have no intentions of putting on a glittering suit and heels, I love seeing the hard work and dedication that athletes put into prepping themselves for a competition and that motivates me to put the same hard work and dedication into planning and preparing the competitions. I love seeing all of the hard work, both on the promotion side and the athlete side, come together in an amazing way on show day.

Christine’s personal training name, “On Track Training” says it all. Not only does she help with contest prep, workout programs and diet, she makes sure I am reaching my full potential during every phase of my training. When I first approached Christine, I already had two years of competition experience, trying to diet and train on my own. During that time, it was frustrating not getting the results I wanted. But under Christine’s watchful eye, I have been able to add muscle, reduce body fat and gain more confidence on stage in just six months.
I highly recommend using Christine’s services. She has walked in our shoes as a fellow competitor and understands the mental and physical demands training has on the body. I know that when I come to her for advice, she will always guide me in the right direction. It is such a relief and comfort knowing I have someone who will stand by me and help me succeed. She truly cares about how her clients prepare for a contest, and ensures the transition into an off season is done in a healthy and respectful manner as well. No problem is too big or small for her.
Another unique advantage that Christine offers anyone wanting to learn more about the NPC (National Physique Committee) and competing is the numerous seminars she offers throughout the year. It is a special time to meet fellow athletes, to ask questions and learn from an I.F.B.B. professional, NPC national level judge and the district chairperson for MN, ND, and SD. I have had so much fun hanging out and talking to competitors backstage because I knew so many from the seminars.
I can speak passionately about Christine and her services because she lives her motto every day. Not only does she strive to be her personal best but she also works tirelessly to promote excellent and well run shows. Christine inspires me to be a better athlete and she has me genuinely excited about living a healthy lifestyle. I look forward to continuing my training with Christine and On Track Training and celebrating the results at future shows.
Mary Stockbridge, IFBB Fitness Pro

I met with Christine and decided to move forward and register for my first competition. I started out in the Figure division at 2010 North Star with only 7 weeks to diet, but Christine assisted me with posing and provided me with diet help and a preparation outline to guide me to the stage.
I mark my experience at the North Star as a success, but I learned that I was too athletic and lean to be a figure competitor. I’m a runner, a marathoner—not a bodybuilder. I decided that I wanted to be both, but how would I succeed? I attended all of the seminars in On Track Training’s Digging Deeper into Contest Prep series leading to 2011 Gopher State. Christine provided all the necessary tools along with body fat testing, so the athletes could follow their progression and have all the tools necessary to guide them on stage with confidence and grace. The Gopher State Classic was a marathon of a different sort and I have a new respect for the sport of bodybuilding. The hours of commitment, preparing and planning were beyond my comprehension. Everyday, I’d think of On Track Training, my friends and family. At the finals of the 2011 Gopher Classic, it was revealed that I truly earned a winning bodybuilder status. It’s true, the unbelievable can be achieved.
Christine is an outstanding event promoter and even a better personal trainer. I thank her for that and respect everything she’s done for me. Thank you, Christine for seeing something in me that I could not believe myself. I look forward to taking my experience at Gopher and becoming a better, more knowledgeable athlete.
Willie Tibbets, 2011 NPC Gopher State Classic Women’s Bodybuilding Champ

I trained with Christine for many years and thanks to her I won the heavy weight division in the Gopher State bodybuilding show. I am also a two time state powerlifting champion because of her. She can do wonders for anyone who willing to put the time and effort in. She has in so many ways helped me be who I am today. Christine is very dedicated to what she does and has made the world of bodybuilding more understanding to many people.
Cathy Anderson, NPC Women’s Bodybuilding Competitor & Powerlifting Champ

I began training with Christine after I went to one of her posing seminars. At first, I just wanted help with posing, but it quickly turned into posing, diet, and weight training. She is very knowledgeable and it shows through her training and seminars. My first year on stage I won my class and went onto Jr. Nationals. Without Christine, I would have never thought I was ready to enter a National Competition. She has become a friend and someone I can trust and have total confidence in her expertise to prep me for all of my shows. She is always there for me when I have questions, including on the day of competition. I am proud to be part of On Track Training and look forward to continued success with Christine by my side.
Christie Mader, 2011 NPC MN State Figure Overall Champ

I approached Christine with my fitness competition goals in 2010 after moving from Arizona in 2009. Her reputation preceded her as I had heard about her seminars & active role in the midwest bodybuilding/fitness community.
Christine is a rock. She’s reliable, full of information, full of passion, w/ an incredible head on her shoulders, and great energy.
Christine helped to make my contest prep and fitness journey in Minnesota second to none. Her knowledge extends beyond diets and training. She was thoughtful in her recommendations to ensure my success; from what contest to prepare for, to who to go to for suits, photographers, & she worked w/ me through injury. I was impressed from day one w/ her organization, & she now stands as one of my role models as a energetic passionate business woman who keeps the clients’ best interest at heart.
We need more people like Christine Bongiovanni in the fitness industry.
Tyler Powers, NPC Fitness Competitor

I first met Chris four years ago when I decided to compete in my first figure competition. I knew nothing about lifting weights, training, or the real definitions of carbohydrates, proteins etc. I must say Chris taught it all to me. She helped me with my body, my suit selection, my diet, posing, and my confidence. She is my trainer, my mentor and now my friend. I have competed in 3 shows and placed in the top 3 for all shows. It has been a wonderful experience working with Chris, competing in shows and learning how to live a healthy lifestyle. I highly recommend On Track Training!
