Meet Personal Trainer, Chris!

Meet Personal Trainer, Chris! 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 staying active and is a big fan of shows, movies, video games, and eating!

WHAT IS YOUR PHILOSOPHY ON TRAINING?

My philosophy on training is 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.

FAVORITE ACTIVITIES: Strength/Bodybuilding Training, Snowboarding, Basketball, Rock Climbing and Cooking

FAVORITE MEAL: Seared Tenderloin with Mashed Potatoes & Veggies
