BACKGROUND

Starting from an early age Chris’s parents role modeled fitness into their daily lives. From gym workouts to surfing and snowboarding he grew up enjoying and honoring the sun, ocean and mountains. Grounding in his love for sports and psychology Chris earned his bachelors degree in exercise science and says his masters began when he started studying and practicing yoga. He put his knowledge to the test directing a local beach volleyball club to National championship level. He met his wife in 2014 and created Circles a holistic program for teens. More than just an after school program Circles taught real life lessons from amazing guest teachers while fitness and yoga was the foundation for the program. As an extension of Circles Yogateen was created, a 200 hour yoga teacher training for teens, where over 12 teenagers got certified. Now at Soul Chris combines exercise science, yoga and nutrition into SOULFit.
