About Chris

My name is Chris Holt. I am an identical triplet and my brothers and I were adopted from Seoul, Korea when we were a little over a year old. I grew up overseas most of my life (Italy, Singapore, England, and Norway). One constant in my life was always sports. It became my identity in many ways as a young adult. When I was in 7th grade, I had what would later turn into 4 major lung surgeries. Along with a near fatal car accident my freshmen year of college, doctors told me I was never to play sports or lift weights again and that I was bound to yoga and pilates.

I could have accepted their diagnosis but I refused to. Through many ups and downs I proved them wrong. I have done everything from bodybuilding to endurance races (marathons) which left me on two ends of a large spectrum. I wanted to be fast and strong. I found CrossFit in 2004 which promoted being mediocre in everything rather than specializing in one or two things. CrossFit believed "routine is your enemy" and wanted you to "blur your comfort margins". These ideologies would set me on a path that I was destined for. I left my profession as an architect in 2008 to open the second and currently oldest CrossFit Affiliate in Miami. I co-owned and operated that affiliate until June of 2018.

With over 10 years of experience helping individuals achieve their fitness and health goals, I have taken my passion online to help people near and far. This is why Evolution Athletica was created. To help people that may not have access to a Coach or who are too intimidated to join a gym. I make training simple, effective, and educate each person I work with on the foundation of a balanced diet and exercise routine that is tailored to their personal goals.

"Evolution" is defined as "the gradual development of something simple to a more complex form." Through life's evolutions we all change both mentally and physically. It is my goal to make sure any and all growth is positive. I will equip you with the necessary tools to face any challenge and to set you on a path towards success. What makes my service unique is that I will be available to you whenever you have a question or concern so we can stay the course.

I left architecture because I didn't feel like I was making a difference in the world. I found my true purpose in helping and serving others as a health coach. I feel I can make a bigger change on a smaller scale with an individual. Affording people the opportunity to live a longer life, improve their self esteem and confidence, get off whatever medications they're currently on, or do something they never thought possible fills me with nothing but happiness and gratitude.

I take your personal goals and make them my own. I am invested in every person I work with because of one simple fact.

If you don't thrive, I don't thrive.
