Have you always been interested in health and fitness?

Christopher: My journey began over 20 years ago in the rehabilitation center after suffering an ACL injury while playing football during my junior year in high school. During rehab, my relentless passion for the game drove me to make a full recovery, play football again, and continue my short career at the University of Minnesota-Duluth.

What inspired you to become a personal trainer?

Christopher: 20 years later my passion for fitness is geared towards staying strong and healthy for my family and helping others live a healthy and happy life for their families.

What are your training specialties?

Christopher: I’m a versatile Personal Trainer who believes preparation and recovery are the keys to staying injury-free and getting maximum results. I implement both HIIT and Functional Training to keep my clients motivated and engaged.

Do you have any guilty pleasures?

Christopher: My guilty pleasures are pancakes, ice cream, and cheesecake. I know all three are loaded with carbs, but I love them deeply.

Who are your heroes?

Christopher: My heroes are Muhammad Ali, Will Smith, and Ice Cube.

What’s your favorite Workout Trainer feature?

Christopher: My favorite feature is the social community. I love connecting, chatting, and helping people from all over the globe.

Do you have any go-to training gear that you would recommend?

Christopher: My go-to training gear is hands down the jump rope. It’s a wonderful and convenient way to improve strength and endurance without having to hop on a treadmill.
