Christmas Abbott Wiki Bio

Christmas Abbott was born in Lynchburg, Virginia USA, on 20 December 1981, so under the zodiac sign of Sagittarius and holding American nationality – she is popular for her career of a fitness model, and for her Instagram account.

Childhood and education

Christmas spent her entire childhood in Lynchburg, together with her parents and her sister. It was not an easy childhood, as she was involved in a car accident at the age of 13 which put her sister in a coma. Christmas did not take this well and she became mentally unstable – she turned to cigarettes and alcohol which provided her comfort, and she continued with this lifestyle for nearly 10 years. It is not known what happened to her sister but it is speculated that she hasn’t awoken from the coma.

Christmas was one of the ‘bad girls’ during high school, as she was amongst the first to start drinking and smoking cigarettes. Although she had poor grades, she somehow managed to matriculate, but chose not to enroll at college, rather beginning to work so that she could have enough money to financially support herself.

Career of a fitness model

At the age of 22 Christmas decided to turn her life around, and she went with her mother to Iraq as a civilian contractor. It was there that she learned about living healthily and exercising, and this made her decide to quit alcohol and cigarettes. She began exercising the moment she arrived back in the US when she was 26, and soon learned about CrossFit which helped her launch her career as a fitness model.

Christmas was passionate about moving the limits, and CrossFit was there to set these goals for her – she fell in love with exercising as she enjoyed the way it made her feel, while she had no time to think about negative things. Being as good as she was, she opened her own gym in 2007 and started working with people who had issues similar to those she’d  experienced – she is known to have even helped some of the people with the biggest problems by letting them exercise at her gym for free.

Christmas’ modelling career was launched mostly thanks to her Instagram account, while her friends helped her get noticed as well – she was uploading her pictures on a daily basis, and her friends asked their friend who was a modelling scout to take a look at her Instagram account, and see things for himself. He subsequently invited Christmas for her first photoshoot which went really well, and she has since posed for some of the most popular fitness magazines in the US.

Her career of a fitness model made it possible for her to join the NASCAR pit crew on one occasion – her job there was to change tires on Clint Bowyer’s car. Her involvement with NASCAR made her the first women to ever become part of the Sprint Cup pit crew.

Christmas appeared in the “Big Brother” show in 2017 during its 19th season.

Most popular fitness models in the world

Fitness is currently a very important thing in the world, and people are turning to Instagram to find fitness models there so that they could learn from their workout plans and their diets. “Influence marketing hub” website has shared their list of 10 most popular fitness models on Instagram and surprised or not, Alyssa is not among them – we will mention four of the most popular fitness models:

  • Fourth place is held by Ana Cheri who has amassed nearly 12.4 million followers on her account – she is currently 31 years old and she launched her Instagram account out of nowhere when her figure was already well built;
  • Jen Selter is in third place, and has amassed more than 12.8 million followers on her Instagram account. She is currently 24 years old, and began working out when she was 15 – she was working in a fitness gym, and the very first picture of her in a bikini she shared online made her popular overnight;
  • In second place is Michelle Lewin, who started off as a catwalk model but then switched to bikini modelling. She started going to the gym to work on her body, and quickly changed her weight from 95lb to 120lb of pure muscle;
  • Top spot is held by Sommer Ray, who is currently followed by more than 21.3 million people on her Instagram account – although she is somewhat new to Instagram as she joined the platform in September 2016, it hasn’t stopped her from becoming the most popular fitness model.

Even though these are the current most popular four fitness models, the industry is moving very quickly and their positions could soon be overthrown by some new names, including Christmas.

Training and dieting

Christmas has shared only a few details regarding her workouts, as she is a popular personal trainer and wouldn’t like to share her secrets free of charge.

Christmas believes that compound exercises are very important – some of these are squats, deadlifts, bench press and pull-ups. Her compound lifts are very important to her, as she believes them to be the crucial part for CrossFit – she also never forgets her cardio exercises, for which she mostly uses outdoor running and sometimes her treadmill.

When it comes to her diet, Christmas eats around eight times every day and always the same foods and same quantity. Her diet is mostly focused on peanut butter, eggs and apples, with the addition of bacon, chicken meat, vegetables, other fruits, protein shakes, coconut water, and almond milk.

Personal life and relationships

Christmas hasn’t shared much regarding her love life with the public, however, she has had some problems in the past, most of which were covered in the media.

Christmas is a married woman – she exchanged her wedding vows with her other half Benjamin Bunn in 2018. Benjamin is a personal trainer and has appeared in the “Big Brother” show as well – he and Christmas are parents to their son Loyal, who was born in October 2018.

It appears that things are not that great in paradise as Benjamin asked for a DNA test at the end of 2018 as he believed that Christmas was cheating on him – Benjamin’s background story isn’t that great, as he was once accused of stalking by a woman he used to date. Christmas doesn’t seem to be doing any better than Benjamin, as she crashed her Mercedes SUV into another woman’s car who she believed was sleeping with her husband – at the time of the incident, Christmas was in her eight month of pregnancy.

The woman whose car she hit is Samantha Morse – Samantha is allegedly dating Benjamin who stated that he and Christmas are no longer romantically involved, meaning that whatever he has with Samantha is not really cheating.

Judging by her social media accounts, Christmas is married but isn’t romantically involved with her husband Benjamin, who is currently trying to get custody over their son Loyal.

Hobbies and other interests

Christmas might be very passionate about modelling and about CrossFit but she has numerous other interests as well.

Christmas is currently spending most of her free time with her little boy Loyal – as she does not want to give up on her CrossFit exercises, she usually takes her son to the gym. She has fallen in love with nature since her son’s birth, and the two of them spend most of their time together in a park close to their house. They will often watch movies and TV series late at night until Loyal goes to sleep… and will continue to do that again after he wakes up and the process starts from the beginning – Christmas’ favorite movies are “Edward Scissorhands” and “Fight Club”, while she is very fond of the “Breaking Bad” TV series. She is also a big lover of animals and has a pet bulldog named Fran – Fran has his own Instagram account which counts more than 11,000 followers with over 90 pictures uploaded onto it.

Christmas doesn’t seem to be interested in love anymore, but is rather focused on herself and her son Loyal.
