While studying Economics at the University of California, Santa Barbara, Chris took additional courses in Exercise Science and Nutrition. During this time, as a young, single man in his twenties, Chris led a relatively healthy lifestyle. There was plenty of time to exercise and he was able to eat what he wanted without worrying about weight gain. As he entered his thirties, he got married and started a family. He spent the majority of his time focusing on his family and career. Regular exercise became less of a priority and poor eating habits were catching up to him. 5 years and 50 pounds heavier, he decided he needed to make a lifestyle change. He did not have the energy to spend quality time with his family after work and weekend outings became physically exhausting.
Chris focused on an exercise program that consisted of basic compound exercises, regular cardio and carbohydrate controlled dieting to not only lose the 50 pounds, but also get into the best shape of his life. This encouraged him to become a NASM Certified Personal Trainer so he could help others in a similar situation. Chris' goal is to show others that it is possible to make small, progressive changes that will allow them to lose weight and get into better shape while still focusing on the important things in life. Healthy living should become a part of your life without consuming it.
