"Having Chris as a coach was a phenomenal experience; he set the standard pretty high. At first I was indecisive about whether or not it was worth investing in a coach but I couldn't be happier with my decision. Chris is super knowledgeable, genuine, kind, thoughtful, and he's sometimes a bit too much of a savage (but that's what makes him cool). I guess he's pretty funny too. During the time I had with Chris, he taught me a lot about training, nutrition, competition, helped me figure out how my body responds to training, and he taught me how to properly perform pauses! He even gave me pep talks whenever I was feeling down or stressed and always knew what to say to help get me back on track. Although I was a pain in the ass and always annoyed him, he put up with me. Whether I had silly questions or just wanted to talk, Chris was always there. I couldn't be more grateful to have had such an amazing coach. I honestly and wholeheartedly enjoyed being Chris' athlete and I can't wait to work with him again. Not only did I gain some awesome PRs, but I gained an outstanding friend as well."
