Imagine yourself as this angry young woman, barely out of the teens, outliving the life on the edge with heavy drinking, smoking, and doing drugs until one fine day mortar stars landing all around you smack in the middle of an Iraq war zone. That is the day when you admit to your sacred self that the one life you have been given is actually worth living for. That, my friends, is the beginning of a second life for Christmas Abbott. This 39-year-old girl from Virginia has come a long way to establish herself as this inspiration to hundreds of women across the globe and spreading fitness enthusiasm to men and women alike. She is on Instagram with @christmasabbott around 690k followers.
Early Life and Career
Abbott was born on the 20th of December, 1981 in Lynchburg, Virginia, USA. She holds the nationality of a proud American. She was brought into this world by her father, Ed Abbott, and her mother, Barbara Abbott, and also has a sibling named Kole Abbott. Talking about her career and her interest, she is widely famous for being a Fitness Trainer. Aside from being a fitness trainer, she is also a nationally ranked Weightlifter. Her resilience, endurance, and perseverance added up with her rebellious streak to turn out one impossible feat after another.
From her life, she wants to convey the message that, it’s never too late to start taking care of your body and there isn’t any limit to what you can achieve if you really put your mind into it.
At 18, after barely graduating High school, Christmas tried to enroll in the army but got rejected. She later confessed that she was in really bad shape and could barely run a mile without collapsing. Later on, she joined the US base in Iraq as an independent civilian laundry attendant at 22 which was when she was introduced to fitness and also realized the true value of human life and how she was wasting away her own. After being inspired by one of the fellow soldiers, when she came back to the US from the base camp, she started her own CrossFit coaching class. CrossFit evolved and she focused on developing her own brand which also led her to take up competitive weightlifting and within a short period of time, she had secured national ranking and is eyeing competing at the next Olympics.
It isn’t clear where she went to high school, but she immediately tried and failed to join the army after painstakingly graduating from high school.
As of 2021, Abbott’s approximate net worth is estimated to sit somewhere around 1.5 million US dollars.
Christmas Abbott is dating Big Brother co-star Memphis Garrett. They met on the 22nd season of the show, and Abbott confirmed rumors about the two being together by making it official on Instagram by posting a couple of photos of them together in December of 2020.
Abbott has a number of nicknames like Creepy Christmas, Halloween, Christmas Joye, Krampus, and Felonymas. She is also the author of her book series The Badass Life.
