Health and wellness have always been part of Chris’ life. During his formative educational years, he worked as a personal trainer as well as alongside Physical Therapists at a Wellness and Physical Therapy clinic. After completing both degrees, Chris put his education to work. He spent much time training collegiate athletes and multiple teams within the MLB, NFL, NHL, MLS, and WNBA. While leading a healthy and active lifestyle is a top priority personally for Chris, he is most passionate about his clients and providing the best possible training atmosphere and education to all.
