About Chris

I have been a personal trainer for over 14 years. In addition to being a trainer, I’m also a New York State Licensed Massage Therapist, which has allowed me to blend the two worlds to not only get his clients stronger and in better shape, but to also make them better movers overall. Typically use an in session assessment to gather where your starting point is on your fitness & health journey. From there, I’ll put you in the best position to succeed. Think of me as the Yoda or Obi Wan to your Luke

My favorite exercise

Bulgarian Split Squats

My training philosophy

My coaching philosophy is that I am merely the guide on your journey. Directing you to the path that is optimal, but also empowering you to make your choices. As far as training, I firmly believe that strength training makes everything else better. Mix in strength, with core and some metabolic training, and you have a recipe for success

My training experience

Training for 14 years as a coach, but before that I was a track and field athlete in HS and college so my basis for training started there. From there I dove into all things physical therapy, and started training myself for various things, like strength, like hypertrophy to build muscle, over to speed training and back again.
