CHRIS

Growing up on Staten Island, Chris was an athlete. As a kid, his weekends were usually filled with some kind of practice or game, primarily football, soccer, and hockey. By high school he turned his focus entirely to football, playing running back and wide receiver for the freshman, JV, and Varsity teams at Monsignor Farrell High School. After high school he focused on his studies and his career and let his fitness go. One day he looked in the mirror and decided he didn’t like what he saw. After discovering Brazilian Jiu Jitsu he lost the weight he had gained during a decade of inactivity and started taking back control of his life. But it was his discovery of CrossFit that truly brought about a transformation in his outlook on fitness, health, and athletics, and a new passion to help others improve their lives through physical fitness.
