Krystal Walden is the Founder/CEO of KRYSTAL SPA®, a health and fitness spa devoted to the healing arts. Her remarkable commerce into entrepreneurship resulted from a career boomerang. From the age of 8, Krystal became an accomplished 100 and 200 meter runner. Her execution and excellence in academics and athletics earned her scholarships to the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), where Krystal earned a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Sociology with an emphasis in Psychology. Krystal also competed as a World-Class and UCLA Track Athlete, trained by the best of the best; Brooks Johnson (U.S. Track & Field Olympic Team coach), Bobby Kersee (U.S. Track & Field Olympic Team coach; husband and coach of six-time U.S. Track & Field Olympic medalist, Jackie Joyner-Kersee), Jeanette Bolden (U.S. Track & Field Olympic Team coach and medalist; former UCLA Track & Field head coach), the UCLA athletic weight training staff; and the UCLA athletic diet/nutrition training staff. While in college, Krystal Walden began her corporate career in the fashion industry where she soared to an associate buyer position for Guess?, Inc. and then for Macy*s West. With these rewarding experiences, she learned to manage multiple, $50+ million prestigious vendor accounts that included Men’s Collections (Claiborne, Perry Ellis, Kenneth Cole New York, and Reunion) and Men’s Shoes (Nike, Adidas, Puma, Skechers, Rockport, Sperry, and Stacy Adams). Krystal gained expertise in developing and managing the qualitative financial/assortment planning, comprehensive analysis, advertising, marketing, and promotional components of a business while continuing to study to ensure business growth. Despite her success, Krystal reached a point in her corporate career where her soul and spirit were no longer fulfilled in the fashion industry alone; her athletic nature was craving for attention. That epiphany motivated Krystal towards an entrepreneurship in the health and fitness industry. In 2002, Krystal developed the business concept of KRYSTAL SPA® when she took notice of the absence of health and fitness awareness among most spa facilities of today. This awareness created an opportunity for Krystal to integrate the niche of health and fitness services with high-quality spa services. In 2003, Krystal Walden began her intensive Yoga Therapy studies at Bikram’s Yoga College of India where she was trained by the world-renowned Bikram and Rajashree Choudury. She successfully achieved her credentials as a Certified Yoga Therapist. Krystal deepen her Yoga Therapy studies at the Forrest Yoga Institute where she trained by the world-renowned Anna Forrest. To balance out her knowledge of the human body, Krystal studied Massage Therapy at the Institute of Psycho-Structural Balancing (IPSB), a school of holistic body therapy. There, she successfully achieved her credentials as a Certified Massage Therapist. As the years go on, Krystal’s passion and enthusiasm for the creation and mechanics of the human body grows stronger and stronger. In 2008, she joined Forster Physical Therapy and was an apprentice to Robert Forster, an Olympic sports physical therapy specialist. Krystal is now with the Nation’s #1 Biokinesiology and Physical Therapy faculty practice, the University of Southern California (USC) Physical Therapy Associates, as a Clinic Buyer, Medical Records Specialist, Head Physical Therapy Aide, and Research Assistant. Krystal Walden brings to the health and fitness spa 25+ years of experience as a competitive athlete, offering her unique fusion of athletic gifts and accreditations. With the kind of strength, flexibility, balance, and compassion that Krystal possesses, there is no doubt that she will meet her goals, to enhance the global image of how to live a stronger, healthier, and balanced lifestyle.
