I am a certified NASM personal trainer, online certified coach, boxing level l coach, and experience with corrective exercise and special populations. I am located in San Jose, California but offer online coaching to help those outside of my city. I know the value fitness has brought into my life and I want everyone to reach their full potential. 

I enjoy watching people break out of their shell and watch how fitness improves every aspect in their life and the confidence starts to show.

By educating you on nutrition and fitness, he leaves a lifelong impression on you and changes your life for the best! Not only will you become more educated in the gym, you’ll become more educated with your dietary intake and make smarter decisions on what you put in your body. Through Chris, you learn to become your best self!

    Chris is by far the best trainer. He takes time to understand your fitness goals and gets to know you as a person as well. He is supportive and motivates you every step of the way. Not only is he highly qualified in training he is also very knowledgeable about nutrition.

  • Perla Gutierrez

    Christopher has a really nice presence and is extremely knowledgeable. I feel comfortable trying new things and not feeling silly if I didn’t do them right. I feel like I’m so much more healthy now and have so much more energy on a day to day basis. I don't feel gassed after a session; I feel energized and accomplished.

How did you get started teaching?

I fell in love training myself and others started asking me what I do and later turned my passion into a career. 

What types of students have you worked with?

I worked with ages as low as 12 to as high as 92 years old. I am comfortable with all age groups and populations. 

What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Don't be afraid to ask questions and make sure you guys are a good match. At the end of the day if you guys aren't connecting it may not be the best fit. Try them out before committing to anything.
