I've played for the GB Women's Softball team for many years. I've worked with many fitness coaches & personal trainers in my life, but Chris has been my favourite to work with by far. I would recommend him to anyone from top athletes to those just looking for a little motivation to get active again.
After having a big knee operation last year, I knew that getting back in shape for a major competition like Euros would be tough to say the least. I quickly enlisted the help of Chris at Innerfit and that was the best decision I could've made.
Before our first session, Chris spent time setting realistic & specific goals with me, getting to know my daily habits, working around my hectic schedule and listening to what I needed. His dedication to getting it right at the start made all the difference to my recovery and fitness transformation.
Our sessions were fun and effective, his creativity came through in his session planning and he seemed to enjoy our workouts as much as I did.
Above all, Chris' enthusiasm and energy inspired me. I genuinely felt he cared about my progress and considered the best approach to coaching me through, especially when my motivation was low. I could be honest with him about how I was feeling and he adapted the sessions based on my feedback with excellent communication in between to check in on my progress and check up on me that I was doing the workouts in between.
After 6 months of working with Chris, I was mentally & physically prepared for the European Championships in Italy in June. We finished with a Bronze Medal out of 23 countries, a top performance from GB, and earned a ticket to the World Championship in Japan next summer! I felt as strong and fit as girls 10 years younger than me on the team and played a key role in our success.
Qualifying for Worlds will keep our GB programme on track on our road to Tokyo 2020, now that softball is back in the Olympics. I am continuing to my work Chris to be stronger & faster than I've ever been.
