    Need an individual coach? Need a team trainer? Need a sports psychologist? Chris is your man. Let's get this straight, I am completely biased; I have recommended Chris to my friends for years (never had a complaint from anyone I have ever introduced to him!) He has an amazing capacity to read his clients and will give you what you need - not always what you want - but this is one of the traits I admire about him most.
    He has an excellent eye for reading where you are, and excellent skills to take you to your goals... be careful though, he will have you surpassing your goals and achieving more than you thought you could. I never thought I could qualify for the Boston Marathon, and thanks to Chris, a dream I had never dreamed, came true and I ran Boston! Strength, speed, endurance... I highly recommend Chris at all levels.

    I met Chris over 9 years ago while taking group fitness classes at my local gym. Took one class and have never turned back. I've continued to do both group fitness classes as well as personal training under Chris. He makes his classes challenging, yet motivating. Chris wants you to come back for more. He gives unselfishly of his time and in doing so he has pushed me to do things I never thought I would. He has an undying dedication to his true passion in life that is evident in his style of teaching. Chris has also worked with me while I maintained my fitness routine through three pregnancies. He's great at working with clients of all fitness levels. Chris is challenging, encouraging and makes you want to come out of your safety zone.

    I joined Chris' Outdoor Boot Camp class 9 months ago and it has made a huge difference in my fitness and stress level. The class is very challenging with varied circuit type training and is open to modification if you have injuries/issues. Not to mention, it is motivating and supportive to work out with other people every week who value their fitness, but also have jobs and families.

    In addition, Chris has worked with me to put together a strength training program at home which is helping me reach my fitness goals and fits into my lifestyle. The whole package must be working as I am getting more and more compliments on my fitness and my clothes are fitting better every day!
