Chris was one of the first members to sign up when we opened SportXcel in 2008. He's continued to train with us since and made the transition with us to MuvLab-DTC in February 2016. He has integrated fitness training into his lifestyle and understands that workouts offer more than just physical benefits. There was a time between 2008-2010 that he relied heavily on workouts to help with stress caused by his job.
"I worked for a company in 2008-2010 which was reducing staff on a quarterly basis. It was extremely difficult to walk into work each day knowing that you may not have a job by the afternoon. However, knowing that I could take out my frustrations during a workout gave me the proverbial carrot to continue on. I have never voiced this to anyone at SportXcel/MuvLab but the staff provided me with a positive outlet that I needed to get through this difficult time."
Chris has continued to train with us over the years because of the family atmosphere at MuvLab. Since our transition from SportXcel to MuvLab, he has been joining in on Spin workouts when he's done with his 11:30am strength class. The combination of our strength and spin classes helped him build the fitness necessary to complete the Spartan Race with us in May and climb his first 14ers this summer. He joined us for our hike up both Grays and Torreys peaks in July!
Thanks Chris for making MuvLab-DTC part of your life. We're happy you've stayed dedicated all these years and look forward to helping you achieve many more personal accomplishments! Keep up the great work!
