Where Team Becomes Family 

The Crushing Limits difference 


At the beginning of my journey this year I wasn't in a good place. Physically my body was at its ends fighting against itself and continuing down the path I was on, wasn't going to end well. Chris came along and I trusted him with everything and slowly we began to see my body and mind change! With his experience with Digestive issues he knew all the moves we needed to make to work with my body, and find a regimen that worked for ME. No cookie cutter plans! I started to become the better version of myself and I was hooked. His and Steph's excitement for the potential they saw in me helped me keep pushing even when times got tough. Just keep your head down and grind day in and out! He believed in me at times even when I didn't always believe in myself. He would always tell me "coach knows" and dang was he right! Never has he led me wrong! He's so knowledgeable about health and fitness, always thinking 2 steps ahead and, and was there when you need him at any minute. During my preps with him this 2020 season I could trust in him 110%, so I never stressed which was HUGE for me. His passion for this sport and his clients shines through because you never feel like just another client. It's like a family. The support is unreal! Becoming a part of Team Crushing Limits was the BEST thing I ever did. When you have a coach who helps you unlock your true potential anything is possible!

Prior to meeting Chris I was with a coach that provided great results but had poor communication and it almost felt like I was an inconvenience. I first reached out to Chris to talk about my goals and disappointment in my prior coach. Chris’s response put me at ease reassuring me he would be the person to help reach my goals. Not only does he offer specialized nutrition and workout plans for me. He responds to my questions quickly and makes the necessary changes based on results. This is not a cookie cutter coach. He does not coach for the money. He coaches for the love of the sport. Our team is comprised of bodybuilders, fitness enthusiasts, men & women looking to shed some weight. All share the same goal. We are people who want to better ourselves and have high expectations of ourselves and reflect the same expectations of our coach. Team Crushing Limits is more than a team of people with the same coach, we are a family. When someone is struggling we rally behind them and help them. When some is competing we are there to cheer them on. When someone joins the team we treat them as if they are long lost friends. My physical changes, and knowledge have grown beyond anything I had imagined or expected from joining. I have stayed with the team even after reaching my initial goal of competing in my first Classic Physique bodybuilding competition because my goals continue to evolve and I trust no one more than Chris by my side helping me achieve my dreams.
