"I tried not to believe it was true, but we had lost one of the most caring souls to a tragic accident," he posted online.
"From the start when I first meet Christine she amazed me, she was the most dedicated Mum I had ever meet. To her fitness and family, even with 3 kids under 5 she would train 5-6 days a week no matter what.
"Then I found out she was studying to become a PT and I told her she was hired already.
"Every single person that meets Christine was inspired by her through her own dedication, transformation and her caring nature."
