My wife, Val, introduced me to Chris–as a Valentine’s Day gift. Though I had been a runner for over a decade, we had moved away from my running partner and my willpower had evaporated. Working with Chris is not like any training that I have had before. We do our workouts outside in the fresh air. When you work out with Chris, you feel like you are getting healthier, not just stronger or faster. Chris is always upbeat, always pushes me harder than I would work out on my own, but never makes me feel as though I have failed. And after a workout, you feel great for the rest of the day.
