Chris helps coach Division I and II athletes, triathletes, high school students and clients of all ages and backgrounds.
Chris volunteers many hours to being a mentor and role model to local youth and non-profit organizations. He has experienced many gifts of loss, pain, addiction, abandonment, success, and glory – all of which have deepened his skill-sets beyond just theory and into practical application of knowledge.
Longevity and always looking to your long-term goals are the keys to reaching places that are unimaginable. When Chris diets anyone down, either for a competition or for general purpose, he makes sure their health and longevity are always first. Many people go on diets and fall off because of the strenuous mindset that they believe you must have. Chris makes everything – from nutrition to training to competition prep to daily motivation – simple for you, and allows you to reach the results you are looking for without having to go through the complexities.
Everything that Chris does, when it comes to a client’s nutrition, is to reach maximum results and allow for enjoyment of the process. Chris stands behind every one of his clients 100% and always looks for the best way to get them to their goal without jeopardizing their health. His methods work for you.
Chris is a firm believer in finding your “why” and utilizing that “why” to reach any goal you may have. When asked what his personal “why” was, this was his response:
“I wake up because I have a mother that spent everyday day raising me. Working three jobs so I could walk with shoes on my feet and a roof over my head. My nephews and nieces that in their innocence, I see greatness. A world of people that do not know how amazing they actually are. I wake up for the kid that thinks he can never make anything of himself. I wake up for the little girl that believes that there is nothing but heartache and misery out there. I wake up for the old man in the nursing home that wishes he could just believe again. I wake up for the people who have less and do far more than they are expected. I wake up for the teenager that thinks he will never belong. I wake up because everyone deserves to be happy. Life isn’t promised to anyone and the people I see deserve everything the world has to offer. Lastly, I wake up for you.”
Let Chris help you discover your true passion and motivate you to find your “why”! You deserve to find your inner greatness, and he will be your guide.
