This year Chris Akard celebrates his 30th anniversary as a fitness professional. His commitment to health and fitness has literally influenced the health of generations. The many individuals and family’s Chris has worked with has brought fitness beyond a goal within-reach, to a lifetime of balance, and the healthful perspective for longevity and a high quality of life. His body of work has benefited both young and old.  His program, Fit Jam with Chris Akard, promoted health and positive self image for children in local valley schools, as well as a national series which was broadcasted in schools via satellite. Likewise, his passion for seniors has been engaged throughout his career and currently as the director of wellness for the large retirement community, Vi at Grayhawk. He was a resident fitness expert for KTVK 3TV for over eighteen years and provided Arizonan’s with hundreds of quality segments on health and nutrition. He has provided leadership and management in wellness for a number of corporations including; Cox Communications, Bashas’ Family of Supermarkets and Hickman’s Farms. His passion for helping others has been rooted in his own business, the Akard Fitness Group, since 1995 and is going strong today.
