Christye Estes, CSCS, is a Sport Performance Specialist at Volt Athletics. From program design and content creation to exercise modeling, Christye has her hand in many of Volt's proverbial cookie jars. Excited about making safe strength training methods available to athletes everywhere, Christye is dedicated to researching new knowledge about strength and conditioning and finding ways to communicate it simply and effectively.
Focused on academics growing up, Christye didn't discover the love of sport and movement until late high school, when she fell in love with running. Plagued by injuries in college, she began strength training as a form of rehab — and found that when she spent time in the weight room, she could run faster, longer, and more injury-free than ever before. She became a Certified Personal Trainer through the American College of Sports Medicine in 2012, and a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist® (CSCS®) through the National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA) in 2015. Christye ran a successful personal training business before joining Volt, helping athletes and non-athletes of all ages achieve better health and performance.
Christye is passionate about helping women and girls take ownership in the weight room. And as a former English major, she also serves as Volt's grammar police, ensuring site-wide subject-verb agreement for all. Focusing on topics like mobility, anatomy/physiology, biomechanics, and female sports psychology, Christye nerds out on topics like acute:chronic workload ratios and energy system development. When she's not running, squatting, or cussing out her foam roller, Christye loves eating pizza, playing ultimate with the Volt crew, and cheering for Russell Wilson forever and always.
