Biography

San Antonio native and proud 6th generation Texan Chris graduated with his Bachelor and Master of Arts degrees from UTSA. After years of yoyo and fad dieting he walked into Bod Armor without the ability to do one pull-up or even a proper push-up, nor had he even picked uup a barbell. With the help of CrossFit he immediately began to see results and looked forward to working out as he was increasing his strength, stamina, power and agility. Additionally Chris quickly found a sense of commjnity and met many lifelong freinds thorugh Body Armor. He feels strongly that one doesn't need to be an athlete to join - he and the rest of the Body Armor team are ready to help your start or continue your fitness and wellness journey.

Biography

I started doing CROSSFIT 6 years ago to improve my overall health. Body Armor was my first and only box and I was only attending twice a week. Shortly after joining I added the Olympic Weight Lifting class to my weekly routine. The Strongman class was initiated a few months later and the rest is history as they say.  Here we are six years later and not only am I a member but I have earned my Level 1 Fitness Certificate and look forward to earning my Level 2 in the next year. I also get to coach the Strongman class which was my favorite sport as a child. I highly enjoy the culture and atmosphere of Body Armor. Coaching the Strongman class is icing on the cake and gives me the opportunity to give back to Body Armor.
