Christopher Huffman, CSCS, *D.

Owner, Head Strength and Conditioning Coach

Biography

As a coach, I believe my greatest asset is experience. Not only in the field of exercise science and physiology, but in the arena of life and all of its battles. I began pursing fitness as a passion when I suffered a traumatic back injury in my early teenage years. With nearly a full year of rehabilitation, I learned the value of physical therapy, strength coaching, and resistance training as not only a restorative method, but an empowering one as well. I have continued to train through all of my adult life, and have an enormous respect for the power of resistance training, both on physical and mental well-being.

I specialize in coaching and training strength athletes, bodybuilding athletes (including figure, bikini, physique, classic physique and bodybuilding classes), and those in need of rehabilitative exercise. For all coaching, I believe in working on our weakest points to help them become our best assets. I see training as a system of breaking down flaws, embracing their existence, finding a correct training pattern and response, and empowering an athlete by making those weak points stronger. I believe in fitness as a lifestyle, a culture, and most importantly, a tool for a long and healthy life.
