Chris was born and raised in Calgary and has been a lifelong weekend warrior and student of movement. Chris studied accounting and worked in the financial sector prior to becoming a full-time Strength Coach and Massage Therapist, and having the opportunity to become a partner of TREC FIT LAB, a local gym in NW Calgary.
Having dabbled in sports growing up, Chris finally found a passion for movement modalities in yoga, running, and lifting weights. It wasn’t until he was introduced to CrossFit that he found his love for Olympic Weightlifting where he then represented Team Alberta at the Canadian Senior Weightlifting Nationals in 2015.
As a lover of movement, you can still find Chris doing yoga, spin, running half marathons, competing in Olympic Weightlifting and CrossFit competitions, and now learning how to properly swim to broaden his fitness scope.
Chris’ passion as Strength Coach and Massage Therapist has provided him opportunities to work with everyone from office workers to world class athletes in the gym, clinic, and through speaking engagements. This has allowed Chris to educate them on the importance of movement and help bridge the gap between rehab and exercise.
