Latest Review: I first started working out with Chris on April 1st of 2013. Newly relocated from New York/DC, I quickly realized that if I was going to live in the south, I was going to have to look good with very little on. I had enough self-awareness to realize I didnt yet have the discipline to force myself to go to the gym. So I figured if I was able to make it so that someone was expecting me to be there, then Id go when I was supposed to, so I decided to hire a personal trainer. Best decision Ive ever made in my life. The progress I made with Chris in the 4 months I worked out with him far exceeded any progress I saw from the last 8 years of gym memberships combined. His knowledge on not just weight training but nutrition as well far exceeded my expectations. I would come to him with questions about things I had long believed to be common knowledge in the training/nutrition world and he would explain to me why it was true or a myth. He completely revamped my nutrition plan, breaking down how many calories, proteins, carbs, fats, and fiber I should be taking in every day; tweaking the plan, when necessary, every few weeks. When I began working out with Chris, I weighed 216 pounds. Definitely overweight for someone just over 62. By the end of our training together I was down to 195, losing 29 pounds of fat and gaining 8 pounds of muscle. Its been 7 months since then and Im now down to 183 pounds. I was at a costume party not too long ago and was dressed in an outfit that didnt cover my chest, when a girl came up to me and asked why I even bother buying shirts. Never in a million years did I ever think Id be comfortable enough to show my chest in a group setting, let alone get that kind of a reaction from someone. Thats when I realized I needed to come back and thank Chris for everything hes done for me and changing my life. I look forward to doing more personal training with him again in the future.
