I have been training with Chris for about 2 years. She pursued me at Accolade Gym where I was exercising on my own, and I was impressed that she never gave up encouraging me to come train with her. Her other attribute as well as persistence is that she comes up with different exercises all the time. I have trained with several other trainers over the years ( probably about 7 at least) and not one was as good as she is about changing things up. I have been working with trainers for around 50 years and she comes up with something I’ve never seen before all the time. She is amazing. My last comment is that she keeps me on track and is all business when we are working out so that conversation is limited which I appreciate. She is always encouraging and with my limitations, she adapts. I would recommend her to anyone.
Last year I had a great thing happen! After 10 years of having chronic pain, it FINALLY went away. I was ready to work out! Yay! But there was a problem....Every time I tried exercising on my own, I'd have a pain flare up. I needed to work out -- but how? I checked out three trainers, including Chris. Several things stood out that made me decide to work with her. She was a direct communicator. She had a strong sense of who she was, but was also attentive to my needs and concerns about working out. She was fit, but not bulky. I'm petite, and had no desire to get HUGE. When I first began, I felt tentative and nervous -- but Chris worked at a pace that was safe for me. She respected my limitations. That was super-important, as I was rebuilding a sense of safety in my body. And just like that -- with Chris’ help -- I was working out! No flare ups! There are so many things Chris does that make me grateful to have her as my trainer! She's upbeat and positive. She's encouraging and gives compliments about what I'm doing well. She creates workouts that are just the right mix of cardio and strength training -- she knows what she's doing! She's well-rounded in fitness expertise, and isn't taken in by passing fads. She helped me -- someone who used to have chronic pain -- be stronger than I've ever been!
I have been working with Chris for a little more than a year on fitness and nutrition. She has helped me make a meaningful transition. I have lost nearly 20 pounds and reduced my body fat from 38% to under 29%. I feel stronger, healthier, and happier. Chris is a great trainer, but I most appreciate her counseling and strategizing. She helped me choose the right options for regular workouts outside of training with her, and helped me identify and tackle some of the food habits that made body recomposition more difficult for me.
I was recommended to Chris by a friend. I am sure glad she did!!! From the moment I met Chris, I knew she was a caring professional who took her job seriously. She wasn’t like any other trainer I have met and tried. She wanted to train me properly. Starting off slow but very efficient. As I got stronger she helped challenge me, every step of the way. Chris has an amazing range of exercises that kept me interested and I never got bored! Not to mention her gym is spectacular! Extremely clean, great music and what a view to look at!!!!! I would highly recommend Chris to anyone looking to start or continue their health journey! She is absolutely fabulous.
Finding time and motivation to "work out" regularly has been a lifelong challenge, but having Chris on my schedule twice a week keeps me honest, and meeting by Zoom makes it easier. Chris always shows up cheerful, attentive and encouraging. Her whole-body strength, balance and flexibility program leaves me feeling highly functional and capable of aging gracefully.
I wanted to update my workout routine of many years and Chris developed an evolving plan that is better for me and is meant to complement the cycling I do. It is exceeding my expectations! She takes a holistic approach that includes nutrition to reinforce the benefits of the exercise. It's just been a couple weeks, but I'm already feeling the progress.
Chris is an AMAZING trainer, competent, prepared, intelligent and truly gifted at helping me reach my goals. Chris lives her wisdom and will help you reach your goals!
Respectful – You always wanted to learn where I was in my fitness life and level and worked within that. Creative – you had the ability to design work outs for the benefit of everyone no matter where they were at in their fitness life and level. Motivated – you were always eager to learn more and teach more. Dedicated – you were always dedicated to me and others in achieving their fitness goals. Flexible – you have the ability to make changes quickly in order to do what was best for me and everyone.
I love your classes and truly believe the positive changes I see in my physique are due to your incredible workouts! Thank you for your motivating energy and creative fun workouts!
I’ve been taking Chris’s group circuit classes at my work place for a few years now. She is always so well prepared, organized, and her workouts are very well thought out and accessible for any fitness level. I feel very fortunate to have her come to my work to give such great circuit classes. She is an amazing trainer and her enthusiasm and passion for fitness is very motivating.
I have worked out on my own consistently for years, 3 to 4 times a week of weightlifting, running and videos. I would watch what I ate and I felt like I was in pretty good shape, but I was never able to lose those “few” pounds I felt I needed to lose. Chris changed all that. After attending her workout classes and personal consultations on nutrition and health goals I was able to lose 18 lbs. and keep it off. She has kept me motivated to attend her classes by constantly changing up her workouts, keeping them challenging and listening to class feedback. Chris’s example of high energy and immense knowledge of physical training, stretching and flexibility techniques have been huge in helping me reach my goals.
Chris is absolutely amazing! She has helped me tremendously with obtaining many of my fitness goals. Chris is always motivated, super focused, makes workouts fun with creative routines, encourages me to challenge myself more, believes in my abilities, and always eager to give feedback. Overall, Chris is incredibly knowledgeable about health and fitness, the do's & don'ts of diet and nutrition, and most importantly, (for me) communicates well and instructs effectively. Wouldn't have come this far without her guidance and encouragement. Thanks Chris...You rock!
Chris is an experienced trainer and I recommend her for her unique and energized training techniques. I’ve had the pleasure of working with Chris on several occasions, in group sessions and private training. She listens carefully to her clients and is great at creating an individualized program to meet your fitness goals. She has a keen understanding of different fitness challenges and will work hard to motivate you through her training experience and a positive attitude. Be prepared, Chris insists on hard work and will get you excited to get in shape and maximize your results.
Honestly, you were the first trainer I ever had to get me to workout.
Chris is consistently upbeat, positive, and very encouraging. She listened to my goals and has created an evolving workout that is varied and keeps progressing as my abilities do.
