About Christopher

My name is Christopher. I started The Genesis Fit because I noticed there was a desperate need for trainers that can facilitate the transition from physical therapy back to normal life. Insurance will only cover 80% of your recovery through physical therapy, and there are very few people who help finish the process. I have 8 years of training experience and currently intern at Bay State Physical Therapy. My business acts primarily as a supplement or follow up to physical therapy and focuses on post-recovery movement training. Though my focus is on recovery and functional movement, I have also trained athletes, physique and bikini competitors, extreme weight loss, and type II diabetics. I am also a certified sports nutrition specialist and run multiple nutrition workshops regularly to teach the importance of nutrition.

My favorite client story

I had one client who was a single mother of 2 daughters. She had a back injury that had scared her and kept her out of the gym for a long time. Her self-esteem and confidence destroyed. But she was ready to change!

I took her focus off the weight loss from the start because I believe if your focus is on the wrong goal you cant succeed. Instead I wanted her to have something that was hers. We hyper focused on one exercise. The Plank. We did them every day that she trained with me and I got her to agree to do it at home with her daughter once per day. We went from unable to hold a 30 second plank to a 4 minute plank in 3 months. I then brought multiple clients together for a day of community and training! I had them all work out together and at the end we did a Plank Challenge. The person who got second place was able to hold their plank for just under 2 minutes, My client just held steady, when we were coming up to 4 minutes (her previous record) I told her keep going! All of my other clients were so impressed with her they were cheering her on and excited with her. This continued for 3 and a half minutes! She crushed her previous record with a new PR of 7minutes 26 seconds. The girls she competed with looked up to her and they were all admiring how strong and amazing she was! The girls looked up to her and she gained a confidence in herself that she had lost.

This happened in 2018. She is now still crushing it at the gym, she has reduced her bodyfat drastically, and she has made many friends at the gym. She now loves exercise because she loves herself now!
