My journey actually started in April 2017, I had let myself go to the extreme and weighed 267 pounds. I started a gym program, started eating clean and over the next two years I was able to lose over 100 pounds! I have always been competitive by nature and knew I wanted more. I wanted to be more and do more, then I learned about bodybuilding, sparkly bikini, flashy lights, SIGN ME UP.

I met Chris and learned about team Crushing Limits through some mutual acquaintances, I was definitely interested but still unsure about how to even go about getting into something of that caliber. I began following them on social media and decided if I wanted to take the plunge, they would be my first choice. I liked what they stood for and from what I was seeing… the results spoke for themselves. Multiple pro cards, overall wins and more. I wanted to be a part of that. Winners create more winners.

I joined the team in July of 2020. Chris instantly brought me into a growing phase in preparation for the first show we planned that following July. Right away, not a single question in my mind, I had made the right choice. The knowledge brought to the table is second to none. No question goes unanswered, no feelings go unheard.

Fast forward, its show time. I was peaked perfectly, I took first in novice and second in my open class, I then flew to Mississippi, Chris made minor adjustments and brought me in even better for round two, where I took first in novice, first in my open class, then on to win the Figure overall.

This team is my family, my future with them is incredibly bright. Every step, every move, every decision is carefully calculated to bring our absolute best. Chris puts the plan in place and as an athlete it is my job to execute. We are already onto next season plans. He has an eye for this lifestyle and sport that goes unmatched. He is always one step ahead of the rest and it shows in his athletes continued success time and time again. The motto is nothing can stop you, with this team and the support it brings that couldn’t be truer. From meal plans, suit color, posing, they truly are the dream team and they do it all.

If I could do it all over again, the only thing I would change is I would have reached out sooner. They have changed my life. I am a better mother, wife, and athlete simply for making one choice. For anyone reading this, don’t wait, make it a reality. You will be welcomed with open arms and a top notch plan, whatever your goals and dreams may be. Let’s work!

About 1.5 years ago I contacted Chris for coaching. I informed him of my short and long term goals. One of my long term goals was to win an Overall as a bodybuilder.
Within 6 months we were prepped and stage ready with my package being leaps ahead of my first show physique, with an added 14 pounds with much better conditioning. And I won the Overall with a huge solid line up for a local NPC show. We are now strong into the off season with lots of growth and a lot more to go! Chris is always quick to respond and is always on point with meet ups and weekly pictures. I Highly recommend him as your coach for all you fitness goals!

I started working with Chris in May of 2016. I was 3 weeks out from Junior Nationals and decided i needed a coach my final 3 weeks and bring me in my best condition. Another coach suggested Chris. Chris said he would take me on short notice. We went on to take 4th place in Classic Physique at Junior Nationals. After seeing how quickly Chris figured out my body and our success at Junior Nationals, i hired Chris. I used Chris for two years, achieving an Overall title in Bodybuilding, Class A title in Classic Physique, and a 7th place finish in Bodybuilding at NPC USAs. Chris has elevated my physique to the next level with his knowledge of the sport and passion for seeing his clients succeed. He continues to learn more about the sport to keep him competitive with other coaches. Chris has established himself as a top notch coach and his clients placing just solidifies his coaching ability. Having a coach in your corner is a must for not only competitors but anyone looking to lose some extra pounds. And the coach that could be right for you is Chris Santamaria and his team Crushing Limits.
