Chris and her staff at Kirchoff Fitness identify realistic goals incorporating real-life movements and routines, using your own environment and mostly the outdoors to make fitness a part of your life. We tailor your workouts to your goals and schedules, from individual personal training sessions to supportive group classes, and of course, our famous Boot Camp, recognized by Seattle Magazine as the best in the city.
Our clients learn how to do what they enjoy to get and keep them active. And once they learn how fun fitness can be, our clients stay motivated.
In one recent class, for example, clients pushed through a few of the '4 minute workout', with laughter and high-fives punctuating all their great work:
Workout 1 (4min AMRAP-as many rounds as possible)
Workout 2 (4min AMRAP)
We help you make subtle behavioral changes, too. It's not just about fitting into a dress for a wedding (though we can help with that, too). We help get you on an active, truly enjoyable path that will help you stay fit and confident for the rest of your life.
Chris’ passion for fitness started with playing soccer over 20 years ago. As a kid, she struggled with the obesity that ran in her family, but discovered the joy of sports, fitness, and healthy eating to help her with that battle. As an adult, she continued playing and coaching soccer and the premiere club level and Washington State Women’s Division 1.
Chris has competed in several triathlons, including the Boise Half Ironman, and in 2011 completed her first Ironman at Ironman Canada. Her marathons include Boston, Honolulu, Seattle, Vancouver, Portland, and New York. An avid hiker, Chris has also summited Mount Rainier.
In addition to holding a Master’s in Education, Chris is certified with two of the world’s leading fitness organizations, the American College of Sports Medicine and National Association for Sports Medicine. She has presented in fitness conferences in Japan, China, Germany, Ireland, and Thailand. Chris is a Reebok Cycle Instructor, and is Crossfit Kettlebell Certified.
When she’s not running or coaching, Chris enjoys being outside, traveling, cooking, hiking and spending time with her daughter, Orion.
