FullSizeRender(4)Having always played sports, but with size being a limiting factor for the next level, Chris sought out the weight room late in high school. His obsession with self-transformation led him to want to share his experiences and passion with others. Over the past decade, Chris has successfully worked with hundreds of fitness folks, with all types of goals, as well as athletes, including many professional and amateur mixed martial artists. He has helped guys make it to the UFC, Bellator, WSOF, and a host of regional shows. Chris has owned and operated Beyond Strength Performance NOVA, LLC in Dulles, VA since 2011, and he has been the head of Human Performance for a full-time federal tactical law enforcement group since 2014.
