Meet Chris Sumo, Skimble‘s featured Trainer! His all-around approach to personal training has enabled him to help his clients with everything from strength training to mobility work, as well as nutrional guidance to help them achieve their goals even faster. We recently had the chance to chat with Chris and learn about how he got into the fitness world himself and what inspires him to continue helping others on a daily basis.
Tell us a bit about your background and where you’re from?
Chris: I was born in Baltimore, Maryland. I’ve been a certified coach since 2007 and have trained in many different places over the years; Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Maryland, and Washington DC. I’m currently living and working in Delaware.
What inspired you to become a personal trainer?
Chris: I realized it first when working at a local YMCA and giving fitness orientations. I gained this great appreciation for seeing a person take steps to inquire about their future fitness plans.
Chris: Sandbags and TRX are my go-to pieces of equipment. They are great for adding more versatility to your exercise routine.
Please share a secret health/fitness tip with the Skimble community…
Chris: I always recommend incorporating foam rolling and recovery workouts. They are very effective for muscle toning and posture adjustments. Try adding some simple recovery movements to your daily routine for a week and you’ll really notice the benefits.
Thanks for sharing with us, Chris, we’re excited to see what the future will bring for you and your training biz!
