If you’ve been a member for a while now you may have noticed some unusual names on the white (orange/blue) board at the gym. Well just in case you don’t know why.. I’d like to answer your questions or concerns that you may have about it… In short, I’m BIG on giving Nicknames and having Alter Ego’s at the gym….


Alter Ego according to Wikipedia:

An alter-ego (Latin, “the other I”) is a second self, a second personality or persona within a person, who is often oblivious to the persona’s actions. It was coined in the early nineteenth century when dissociative identity disorder was first described by psychologists.[1] A person with an alter-ego is said to lead a double life.
Alter-ego is also used to refer to the different behaviors any person may display in various situations. Related concepts include avatar, doppelgänger, impersonator, and split personality.

Alter Ego according to Chris Mello:

Everyone on the planet is made for greatness. We all have superpowers inside of us that give us the opportunity to Living our Best Life. However, Greatness takes Courage (the “C” in CPMFITness btw). To get there a lot of the time we need to create a 2nd personality/persona/2nd self deep within us. At CPM we use it when we are about to start a workout, attempt a PR lift, push through the end and finish strong when we don’t have any more gas left, accomplish something we never dreamed possible.

It takes each of us to a place where we don’t think, we act! It takes us to a place when you don’t just push hard you Push HARDER! It takes us to a place when you feel like you can’t continue to go, you not only go, you go HARDER and STRONGER than you ever thought!

My Alter Ego: #mrCPM

I’ve had a few over the years, some self proclaimed, “Recco” (see LINK). Some given with honor CMO (Cheif Motivational Officer = LINK1 and LINK2).

The CPM in CPMFITness stands for Courage + Potential + Motivation. In a nutshell the Courage to start, the Motivation to keep going and the Potential we have to be better than we think.

#mrCPM stands for Mr. Christopher Paul Mello. I love people, learning and progress. When I’m living my best life I am chasing my potential, bringing others with me and having fun in the process.
