Chris’ atypical background allows him to bring a unique perspective to coaching athletes and personal training clients of all ages and skill levels. His prior work with two top-notch Division I collegiate programs helps him craft and implement custom roadmaps for long-term athletic development.
Chris also relates well to adult “weekend warrior” clients looking for personal training to improve their health and fitness, thanks to his experience losing over 100 pounds after the end of his college football career.
Born and raised in Boulder, CO, Chris was a three-sport varsity letterman at Boulder High (football, wrestling, track and field), and a two-year football team captain. He continued his football career at Grinnell College in Grinnell, IA, where he served as a team captain for two of his three seasons, received All-Midwest Conference honors twice, and was named to the 2011 D3Football.com All-West Region team.
An English Literature major at Grinnell, Chris worked at ESPN for four years as a Content Associate, traveling with the TV production crews for live sporting event broadcasts including Monday Night Football, the NFL Draft, X Games, MLS, and the FIFA World Cup.
Although Chris enjoyed the thrill of covering exceptional athletes nationally and internationally, he eventually realized his true passion was in helping them develop. In 2015, he earned the NSCA Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (CSCS) title, then quit his ESPN job to intern with UConn Football Strength and Conditioning.
Chris then moved back to Colorado to volunteer with the University of Denver Sports Performance staff for the full 2016-17 school year, where he assisted with training for all 17 varsity sports and worked with the DU Hockey team for the duration of their 2016-17 NCAA National Championship season.
Chris interned with Landow Performance in summer 2017, and joined the LP coaching staff at the end of his internship. He works with athletes of all sports and general population clients of varying backgrounds, training for size, strength, power, speed, and movement skills.
