Christi Hoke

Christi Hoke

Cardio Tennis, QuickStart Tennis

QuickStart Tennis Certified, USPTA Recreational Coach

Joined the Body First Staff in Spring of 2015


Christi’s love for the game started an early age. She began by picking up her brother’s hand-me-down racquets (usually broken ones) and would hit against any wall she could find. In high school, she played on her varsity tennis team. Christi went on to play both singles and doubles for the women’s tennis team at Drury University in Springfield, MO. She is eager to learn and enthusiastic about passing knowledge about the sport of tennis. She believes that tennis can be very enjoyable at an early age, and the fact that tennis is a sport one can enjoy for life is a bonus. Christi and her husband Jason have two children; Jay and Abby; and tennis has become a fun family affair.


Christi is the lead instructor for Pre K tennis and helps with other QuickStart tennis clinics and events.
