Hey, my name is Chris. I’m a personal trainer in the south metro of Minneapolis/St. Paul (Egan). My ideal client is someone who really wants to make a difference in their life. I want to work with committed individuals to help change their lives; I’m not just doing this collect a paycheck. I do this because I enjoy it. We all have our struggles in life and we all have had someone help us take the next step.

My style of training might be described as unconventional. While I’m hardcore when it comes to the physical training, I’m definitely more personal when it comes to the people side. You won’t find me yelling like a drill sergeant; instead I’ll be encouraging you to push yourself harder and further. I want you to gain strength physically, mentally and emotionally.

I only have one rule: NO QUITTING. It’s one thing if you push your body to the limit and it fails you, but it’s another to give up on yourself when you are capable of more. I won’t ask you to do something I know you can’t. I refuse to set anyone up for failure. If I want you to try something that you might not be able to do, we’ll talk about it first.
Things I don’t like to hear and what I hear:
I can’t = I don’t want to try
It’s too hard = I’m making a decision not to try
Can we do something easier = I’m being lazy
I can’t breathe = you just talked to me
And if you find yourself in a situation where you can’t breathe, don’t worry. I’m an EMT-B and a firefighter. If anything goes wrong, I promise, I’ve dealt with worse.

I get bored easily and like to keep things interesting. Why would someone pay me to do something with them that they could do on their own? We will work hard… if you want an easy trainer, I know a few. I’ll send you in their direction. If you want results, I promise I can help you. I never claim to be the best trainer out there but I promise ill do the best I can to get you where you want to be.

About me? I split my time between personal training and firefighting. In my downtime, I like to cook and spend time with my dog Kole. If you are interested in learning more about the training I provide or questions about anything. feel free to send me a spark mail or call/text 651.270.2707

    If you ever move to the Bay Area I'll be your first client! If only the trainers at my gym had your passion. (Sigh)

    I could use a personal trainer like you! (I could use one, PERIOD.) Too bad you aren't in SW Missouri!
