After 5 months off surfing due to hip/groin injury, i signed up to your flexibility program about a month ago and am loving it. I got your full program last week and am realising how unfit i am!! Which is good motivation to get into it. I also have old shoulder injury which i have learnt to manage, but the flexibility program is helping heaps with that as well.
Thanks again for your programs!! I found it at the perfect time when i was almost losing hope of recovery.
Just wanted to give you a big thanks.
Five years ago I was over 100 Kg battling pain in knees to the extent I found it difficult to walk up the stairs in my home. I had surfed a lot in my youth and but my condition meant that a return to surf was not even a possibility.
Then my teenage boy started to get into the water and I was continually carting him down to the beach and sitting in the car watching him and dreaming about days gone by.
Anyway I decided to do something about it and after a bit of googling about surf fitness I came across you and your programmes I joined the local gym bought your surf fitness vids and started......slowly..... but with perseverance things started to improve, the other big change I made was my diet, out with the crap, and in with the good, I moved to a paleo/real food diet... Not ultra strict, just the principles... And man that worked like I never thought it could.
So five years on of regular gym going where I have developed my own programmes now based on your templates and watching what I put on my body I've lost about 20 plus kg, My knees still creak a bit but are manageable, I surf year round which in chilly Christchurch NZ is no small feat in its self....I compete in the local surf comps and now at 52 I can say that I'm surfing as well as I ever did. But the best thing Cris is when I go out with my two boys that is a dream come true.
So yeah thanks Cris you saved my fricken life, probably literally.....(-;
"After working with Cris for two months, I am stronger, and surfing better than I have in many years. His enthusiasm and encouragement were exactly what I needed to improve my health, and his teaching style makes concepts easy to understand and implement. I highly recommend Cris to anyone looking to improve their health, their happiness and their life."
After watching Cris’ videos for a year or so, I had the opportunity to work with him directly. As I would consider myself healthy and with a good understanding of healthy habits, I expected to pick up a few new things from Cris to help me progress even further.
What happened during my time, was mind blowing. Cris has pulled together a comprehensive, insightful approach to health/fitness that made me realize I was only a beginner with so much to learn! Completely adjusting my approach to my own goals and fitness. My time working with him progressed me further towards my own goals in months than I had on my own in years. I am still learning and growing as a result of my work with Cris. He is 100% accurate when he says that his programs will change your life! Thanks Cris.
The impact of working with Cris has had major positive results regarding my fitness level, my overall health, and the way I live my life.
I was amazed by the variety of levels of exercise, nutrition and flexibility routines that Cris was able to provide, all while working along why my physical therapist to aid in my recovery process.
I had knee surgery midway threw working with Cris. Our work together helped me recover much sooner than both my surgeon and physical therapist thought possible. I actually was able to go surfing in Costa Rica 2 1/2 months after my surgery.
It is a true gift to be able to work with Cris. I highly recommend this well-rounded program!!
Best of luck,
