Shakeology - Tropical

Tropical Shakeology Review

Tropical Shakeology was made available on 2/13/2012, about 12 hours before it was originally supposed to be!  I got my shipment of this awesome product on 2/21/2012 and was pretty excited to give it a try, but decided to wait until the next morning, which is normally when I have my Shakeology. I was kind […]


Coach Chris Check-In!

Hey Team! Less than 100 days left until the start of the Memorial Day weekend!  I’m already in my second week of phase 2 of P90X2 and posted my 30 day photos.  While I didn’t have the stellar progress that I expected during that first 30 days.  Many of you and my friends indicated that […]


My 100 Push-Up Routine

After my first round of P90X, I began to focus on building up my chest muscle a bit more.  Since I didn’t have a bench press or dumbbells that were heavy enough to do the job, I revert to the good ole fashioned Push-Up. It’s been around forever and is still considered an excellent exercise […]

FitBit and Dock

The Fitbit and me…

I’ve got a new gadget!  Whats even better is it’s a fitness gadget!  It’s called Fitbit. What is Fitbit? Think of a pedometer, except with the ability to track more than just the number of steps you take.  This little device can track activity, measure how well you sleep, count the number of stairs you […]


My Current Supplements

Whenever I start talking about health and fitness with people, most of them come to the question: “what supplements are you taking or were you taking to get the results you got”.  No kidding, this comes up literally every time.  So I thought I would give everyone the inside scoop on what supplements I am […]

My 1900 Calorie Diet

A lot of people ask me about my nutrition and what has worked well for me.  I tend to eat the same foods each and every day, with the exception of dinners.  Below you’ll find a sample of what my typical 1900 calorie diet consists of. ( 1981 cals = 183 protein / 154 carbs […]


My Schedule

I tend to get a lot of questions about what my daily schedule looks like.  As a father to 4 (2 in elementary and 5-month old twin girls), working in IT, my days generally fly by, which is usually a good thing! Here a brief/high level look into what my typical work weekday looks like. […]

Skip the Excuses

What’s your excuse for not exercising during the holidays this season? Fitness professionals and coaches like me have heard them all.  Luckily we have answers for every excuse you can come up with.

Juggling Your Workout and Meal Schedule

If you are just starting out with any training program, finding the proper time to eat in conjunction with your workout schedule can sometimes be bit confusing.  If you are like me, your days are already full of activities; work, kids, family time, etc…  So, when you are trying to determine what time of the […]
