Coach Chris has a unique style of coaching that makes Paramount Barbell Club stand out from the rest. His eye for detail with coaching the lifts and ability to break down and teach each movement plays a big role in the fast development of athletes. Technique is his number one priority with athletes and in the long run everyone improves to reach their full potential. Coach Chris also takes the time to make sure each athlete is taken care of by programming individually for each athlete based on need and goals. In addition to coaching athletes at his own gym, Paramount Strength & Conditioning, Coach Chris has hosted over 30 weightlifting clinics at other gyms and at Paramount, for new athletes and CrossFit athletes looking to improve technique.
