At an early age, Kris understood what his passion in life was, and his journey began in early high school with basement workouts, which led to 10 years of hardcore training before becoming a Drug-Free Competitive Bodybuilder.
He then went on to be a National Bodybuilding Champ and carried the message of drug-free sport into local schools by making regular guest appearances and speaking engagements.
After finishing a Business Diploma, he started his personal training studio in 1998 and named it Bodies By Design Personal Training™ (BBD).
With a team of 30 Personal Trainers and Support Staff, Kris has helped thousands of people design their bodies and change their lives.
BBD went on to be a pioneer of fitness training and fulfilled its mission of bringing personal training into the mainstream. In 2011 they again became a pioneer for new age Physiotherapy by introducing Physio By Design™, a program that bridges the gap between Passive Therapy and Active Rehab and in 2012, became one of the first Personal Training business to offer a money back weight–loss guarantee with the introduction of GRIP™ .
“BBD offers the power of change and inspiration to aspire. There are many clients, past and current, that now believe that transformation is possible from training, nutrition and self-care. It is truly empowering, and this gives me a sense of purpose and fulfillment.”
Kris is the co-founder of the annual event I WISH Ferrari™ which started in 2005. This non-monetary charity event raises spirits for special needs children by giving them the ride of a lifetime in a Ferrari sports car. Each year over 100 special needs children and 100 Ferrari owners participate in this event.
“In this life, my epic mission will lead me to a profound yet simple understanding of human emotion, mentality, and physicality. The totality of the human experience. I want to be known as a teacher, leader and caregiver of this newly discovered knowledge and wisdom, sharing my personal experiences and leaving behind more human beings that live a life of abundance from this inside out.”
As a Weight-loss Coach, Seminar Leader, Speaker, and Author, Kris found his calling to help other people restore balance and keep the weight off as he did for himself.
Kris spreads the weight-loss and wellness gospel by dedicating his life to this cause. As he sets his sights on the future, his crusade will continue by showing others how to keep the weight off and sharing his vision of the health and fitness experience with his clients, children, and the world.
As his motto states, he will continue to – Inspire to Aspire™
