Chris Fontaine

FITNESS COACH / CERTIFIED PERSONAL TRAINER

Chris's training philosophy starts with specific goals and revolves around functional body movement patterns that we all perform in our daily activities squatting, lunging, hinging at the hip, pushing, pulling, and carrying. Whether it’s day to day living or sport specific training I feel you should practice moving how you will be moving during the game or through life. Together we will build your muscular strength and endurance, improve your balance and agility, and raise your level of cardio vascular fitness. No matter what your goals are I will keep you motivated and moving in the right direction to achieve them!

How I started personal training

In my early thirties I had an accident on a Mt. bike and fractured my clavicle and ribs, I was forced to be inactive while my body recovered, I gained weight and was out of shape, I felt like I had hit a low point in my life, it was then that I decided to take control of my health and wellness and improve my overall level of fitness. I had my ability to be active taken away from me, and I became motivated and dedicated to getting it back, to keep moving and never stop. After two and a half years of daily exercise I decided to become a Personal Trainer and begin a career in the health and wellness industry. My decision to commit to daily exercise was one of the best choices I have ever made. I love sharing what I’ve learned with people who are looking to make changes and positive impact in their health through exercise and living well.
