Certifications: National Academy of Sport Medicine (NASM)

Chris received his BS in Culinary Arts and Food Service Management from Johnson and Wales University in 2015. However, Chris has been an athlete his entire life, and despite his inspiration to throw down in the kitchen, he decided he wanted to go a different direction and help people improve their outlook and confidence through regular physical activity and proper nutritional habits. He attended the World Instructor Training School (WITS) where he studied strength and conditioning for 4 months followed by an internship program at Waverley Oaks. Using a combination of knowledge from a nutritional and training stance, Chris really differentiates himself from the pack. He is a Certified Personal Trainer through the National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM) and has acquired several specializations through NASM including Training Psychology and Nutrition.

Chris enjoys working with all populations regardless of whether they have been exercising for years or are looking to begin the journey. He also particularly enjoys working people who are serious about improving their strength, physique, and sport practice. In his free time, Chris enjoys bodybuilding, basketball, snowboarding, and rock climbing. In addition, he is a big fan of shows, movies, video games, and eating!

Philosophy on Training: Keep it Simple. Understand what you are training for, the mechanisms that will help you achieve it, and pursue those consistently. Understand that good technique, effort, patience, and attention to detail really add up over time if you are willing to learn. Lastly, heavy weight training can be for most people, and in my opinion is the best use of time for many individuals I work with.

” Chris Goode combines a positive, upbeat approach to fitness training with a willingness to listen and tailor workouts to your needs. Working with him I’ve improved my strength, conditioning, and flexibility (which has showed up in my tennis playing) and, most importantly, accomplished this while steering clear of injuries. I strongly recommend Chris for anyone looking for guidance in getting, and staying, in better shape.” – Jeff, Member Since 2019

“I’ve been working with Chris since almost day one of joining WOAC. I was shy, out of shape, and lacked the knowledge to make a change. That’s all changed with Chris. He has gone above and beyond, taking the time to break down each exercise, explain technique and form, and help me improve along the way. He makes our sessions fun and he’s incredibly encouraging. I look forward to every Wednesday because I know I’m going to get pushed out of my comfort zone and I’m going to feel great. On top of everything else, I’ve gained a confidence I haven’t had in years.” Stephanie, Member Since 2022

“I have been training about 3 times a week with Chris. He is organized, friendly and really focused on getting me to my health and fitness goals. His fitness plan is well thought out and he provides consistent above and beyond customer service including scheduling flexibility and genuine attention and concern to each one of my sessions!” Cassie, Member Since 2020
