CFB MVP award: Chris B.
Chris joined the CFB family around August 2018 and immediately felt like an old friend. Any time you need help Chris is always the first to lend a hand. Chris’s awesome personality resonates with you far beyond the walls of the gym. Chris works hard every time he steps foot in the gym. He now dedicates more time to his health and puts 110% into every workout. He goes above and beyond in everything he sets his mind too. Chris’s positive attitude and hard work are a true inspiration to us all.
Here are a few words of wisdom from Chris:
What advice would you give to a new person?
“Love yourself, I know most people talk about diet, commitment, consistency, etc… What is important is to love yourself enough to make the changes you need to make to get to where you want to be. Love yourself enough to spend the time you need to figure out where that is. Love yourself enough to put the work in when its too cold out, or you’re too tired, or too sore, or that PR (Personal Record) is too heavy. We all have things we’re not proud of our don’t like about ourselves. Loving yourself allows you the freedom to accept it and then do what it takes to change it.”
What results have you seen?
“Results… where do I begin. Im a 41 year old corporate desk jockey. I dropped 30 lbs on the scale, while adding 10 lbs of muscle. I’ve set new PRs consistently for the past 4 months. I also completed my first competition with a fantastic team. A sample of the gainz: My front squat went from under 100 lbs to over 200 lbs, overhead squat from a bare bar to 100 lbs. My arms and legs look completely different in just a few months. By far and away the best result that I’ve seen is that everything in my life got easier. Increasing my level of fitness has changed every aspect of my life for the better.” I was given a 3rd question to ask myself something, lets reverse that.
“What is preventing you from making progress? What’s keeping you from taking Liam and Donny up on the onramp program. Or showing up more consistently. Or putting down that extra slice of pizza. Or whatever that issue is that prevents you from moving forward. Come join me in the gym and lets get after this"
Well done Chris!
