About this pro

My Bachelor's of Science in Fitness and Health Promotions sets me apart from others in this profession. A college degree is not required so much of the field simply has certifications. I am able to use my education to pinpoint weight management solutions to go along with my functional personal training techniques and nutritional recommendations. These strategies make it easy to pack on muscle, lose weight, or tone up.

I love having the opportunity to improve other's quality of life by implementing better life choices and guiding them through a safe and effective workout.

    love this place! They tailor a nutrition plan specific to your needs as well as the workouts for what ever goal you're trying to reach. I lost 10 pounds the first week so I think I'll keep going. #weddingbod

    Best experience. He's knowledgeable. Skilled. Patient. Encouraging. Genuine. Motivated. Works around body aches and injuries by modifying exercise. I couldn't ask for a better trainer.

  • Brian Bacon

    It's been great working with Chris. He will keep you motivated and will always push to you to improve. He is always willing to give guidance and advice, on diet or workouts. I have no doubt when I leave that I had a great workout.

    Chris is an AWESOME trainer! I've been going to him for almost 6 months and in that short period of time he's helped me drop fat while gaining lots of muscle tone. Chris can get you motivated and keep you there while having fun. I look forward to the days we workout together because I know they are short but very effective! Thumbs up for Chris!

I have worked with youth athletes from age 5 to 70 year old clients that are looking to improve activities of daily living. Every program is adjusted to fit each individual.


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

Our current events that we are starting to plan is an annual health fair and an annual 5k in which all proceeds will go towards a local Naperville foundation. Almost Home Kids is a short-term community based pediatric healthcare facility that brings together Medical Professionals, Recreational Volunteers, Community Providers, Sponsors, Donors, Friends, Corporate and Civic Partners.


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

I would recommend them to be sure that they know who they are hiring! Unfortunatly the fitness field is very watered down with uneducated people which makes all of us in the field look bad. I will not hire trainers at my facility without a Bachelor's of science in an exercise science  related field.
