The women who built PUMA
She Moves Us - How PUMA was started with eight women and six men
The 31-year-old is especially well-known in Spain as a TV personality. Cristina is the face of PUMA’s yoga collections in the region. With us, she spoke about female empowerment, her life as a public figure and her workout routine.
As a woman who stands for female empowerment, what does female empowerment mean to you and is there something every woman should be aware of?
For me, empowerment means being myself, fight for what I believe in, feeling free. Free to make decisions and be whatever I want to be. Everyone should be able to be whatever they want, regardless of their race, sexual identity, social position, religion. I like thinking that we all fight for a freer society, where we don’t harm to each other.
Being in the public eye, you have to face criticism. Where do you get the braveness and strength from, not letting certain comments bring you down?
Being free. I feel confident of what I am doing and what I am. I understand that I can’t be liked by everyone, and I relativize criticism a lot, both the good and the bad. I’m always surrounded by my family and my closest friend. They are the ones I listen to the most.
Your positive attitude is encouraging. What’s your key to being confident and positive?
I always try to get the positive side of things. Life is a long road in which there are many obstacles. We can’t change those obstacles but we can change our attitude. With a positive attitude, everything looks easier and more bearable.

What is your goal for the future?
Be happy. Right now, I am not asking for more. Feeling loved and professionally valued. Every day I try being a better woman, better professional.
Workouts are part of your lifestyle. Can you share your favorite exercise?
I like taking care of myself both inside and out. I do strength workouts with weights, I run, and I do a lot of yoga. Yoga really has changed my life. It makes me feel more relaxed with myself. I highly recommend the Yoga philosophy to everyone.
