    I’ve been working with Chris online for a few months now and have made grade progress under his watch. It requires a specific type of coach to work with someone online- The coach has to have a very sharp eye, patience, and a way of providing specific, written queues for the trainee that allows them to reproduce the movements in their next workout. Chris excels in all of these areas, and also has an added physical therapy background to boot. He works hard to to provide prompt, detailed form feedback, and is always accessible to his clients.

    Chris is an incredibly attentive and helpful coach. I’ve been working with him for a few months, and I’ve gotten stronger in these few months than I had after years of lifting on my own.

    I have been training with Chris since May 12th, 2021. I am so happy with the training and progress I have made since working with him. I have gained 7 lbs. since working with him. I started at 114.8 and now weigh in at 121.6! This is the most I have weighed in 15 or more years! My progress for weight training has been slower than most people because of my I have a genetic lung disease and use oxygen but I am now at 117.5 for squat! That is a personal record for me. The most I had gotten to for this depth was about 108. When training on my own I would always progress and hit a wall, get sick, and the regress and have to start over. He has been excellent at getting me through the bumps in my health and has so far prevented me from going backwards! I couldn’t be happier with my progress. If anyone is in need of working virtually with a coach, I strongly recommend Chris. And an addes bonus is he is also a physical therapist!
