Chris Mello – Co-Founder, Coach

Chris Mello

I am dedicated to the constant improvement of my life and serving in the the lives of others with their Health, Fitness and Wellness.

My journey began way back as a dedicated high school athlete in the sport of basketball excelling into the collegiate level. After college I began my career as a personal trainer in 2001 not really knowing where it would take me.

Having the ability to dramatically improve someones health and fitness is fascinating to me. I became a personal trainer in 2001 to empower myself with the knowledge and the skills to enhance my physical body and mental capacity. Over the years the pursuit and study of fitness developed into a passion for me. I became a student of fitness and healthy living.  Once I began to see the positive impact in my clients the passion they grew to helping others achieve their personal goals.

I am continually searching for new ways to improve myself and the ways in which I can affect people in a positive and supportive way.

I understand that everyone comes from different backgrounds and different ways of living. I believe I can connect with each person and inspire them to live healthier by first, helping them to be aware of their present state and the choices that they have made. Then, to educate them to make healthier and more positive choices. Lastly, to integrate and take action toward creating permanent habits that are a better personal “FIT”.

When I am not coaching I look forward to spending time with my family and friends. I also take part in various sports and outdoor activities, searching for the next best coffee house to read or write.
