Chris is passionate about all elements of movement, performance, physique, fitness, overall health and balanced success across all areas of life. His promise to Team NPS and his clients is to continue his own learning and developing in order to help as many others as possible achieve success with their goals. His viewpoint is: “There is no out of the box approach. Optimal is in the eye of the beholder. Start with intention, build a good plan but most importantly evolve the plan continually to ensure it establishes your individual best approach and journey. The science is important because it supplies us the evidence and theory we need to build foundations for our plans but correct application of that information with respect to ones circumstances and desired outcome is what separates the successful from the stagnant.”
