What People are Saying

Liz A., Marathoner

I started with Chris to help build strength, feel fit, and shave some time off my marathon PR.  In less than a year, I shaved 17 minutes off my time and I credit this to Chris's workouts.

Nicole C., Registered Dietitian

I like that Chris always pushes me, goes the extra mile (literally and figuratively), is constantly improving himself/his knowledge so he can improve others, and keeps workouts light and fun with lots of laughter in between challenges.  I'd recommend Chris to anyone at any level.  He's adaptable and loves a challenge!

David Lee, Gym Manager & Army Veteran 

Chris Johnson is an ideal representation of a top-level trainer and a one-man think tank of fitness knowledge. I am currently a manager at a gym and a client of Mr. Johnson's. I spent four years in the military and have since become somewhat of a couch potato, uninterested in fitness. After sustaining a few injuries that threatened my daily comfort, I decided to try personal training. I was in a professional position to evaluate the quality of personal trainers and Mr. Johnson was by far the superior choice. When trying to think of a single word to describe everything that Mr. Johnson is, I chose "connoisseur." Mr. Johnson has the ability to evaluate the needs of a client, use his intuition, which is backed by multiple degrees of education, and has a thorough understanding of the needs and expectations of each client. When you have a question of anything in fitness, skip the Siri and go straight to Chris.

Bill Jarry, Very Satisfied Client

Chris has been my trainer for almost a year now and I have been extremely satisfied with his knowledge, work ethic, and commitment to helping me succeed with my goals. After successfully running the Boston Marathon, I endured two challenging sports injuries that had been keeping me on the sidelines. Once I started working with Chris though, he developed a custom plan to rejuvenate my legs (and spirit) and get me back in gear. Definitely one of his biggest stengths is this innate ability to combine his vast experience and technical know-how with his understanding for the different body types and issues of his clients so he can be truly effective, not just preach a one-size fits all workout. Without Chris, I'd be back on the couch - Thanks for the help and coaching!!

Doug Baily, Proud Client

"Chris is the best. He combines expert knowledge with a sincere desire to help his clients achieve results. Plus he's fun to work with, personable, easy going, and he makes what could be drudgery into a worthwhile and pleasant experience. I actually look forward to our sessions and that's saying a lot." 

Abhi, Extremely Pleased and Grateful  

I have been training with Chris for the last 5 months, and I am extremely pleased and grateful to have him as my personal trainer. I have had other trainers in the past, but he's amongst the best. I'm 5-6', average built, and my goal is to have a well-toned physique. Having him has helped to realize my goals and understand the challenges involved in achieving them as Chris has written down a perfect set of routines for me to follow. He is extremely knowledgeable about his field and working with him has made me understand and appreciate the human physiology. He?s involved in a variety of physical activities, within and outside of the gym that is unlike most of the personal trainers. I would highly recommend anyone, novice or experienced, to have Chris Johnson as their trainer as there is always something new to learn from the one who is always ahead of the curve.
