"My passion is helping people. If I can provide a platform for people to understand that their health and overall fitness is a lifetime commitment, then we have both been successful."

About Chris

Chris’ passion for fitness started with playing soccer over 30 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 and Washington State Women’s Division 1 levels.

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 also a Precision Nutrition Certified Coach and Certified Sol Guide.

Chris is focused on supporting our community as we age. Her philosophy is rooted in a belief that as we grow older, our ability to participate in activity should not lessen. Chris works with her clients across our community to demonstrate how to move with flexibility and balance. Many of her clients have been with Chris for many years and she invites all to join her on her global fitness adventures. When she’s not running, riding or coaching, Chris enjoys being outside, traveling, cooking, hiking and spending time with her wife and daughter.
