Chris attained a Diploma in Fitness and Health Promotion from Fanshawe College in London, Ontario. Here Chris completed extensive courses in exercise sciences, anatomy and physiology, nutrition, principles of fitness, training with weights, exercise physiology, athletic injuries, and personal training. Chris started working as a Personal Trainer in Toronto, Canada for close to 10 years and helped people achieve their goals while constantly improving his own knowledge base through countless workshops and seminars.
In 2002 Chris began expanding his repertoire by teaching group exercise classes. Chris started accumulating certifications and began teaching everything from indoor cycling to Stott Pilates. Chris also spent his free time volunteering as a hockey coach and training with the Canadian Armed Forces. In 2007 Chris decided to change his scenery, and accepted a job offer working aboard luxury residential cruise ship The World as The Senior Fitness Instructor. In March of 2011 Chris resigned from the World after 4 fantastic years and returned to Toronto to continue in the Industry that he loves, personal training and leading group exercise classes.
