Chris Sprague’s athletic career began as an AYSO soccer player at age six. After three seasons, he was elected to be on three consecutive All-Star teams. The last team won a state championship and went 39-1-1. Chris then took his skills to Irvine Lasers Soccer Club, where he played goal keeper for five seasons.
At University High School, Chris continued his athletic career and played football, soccer and was as a sprinter on the Track and Field team. He was an All-Conference Punter as well as an All-City Kicker and Punter. He was also named Most Valuable Sprinter in 2002. After graduating, Chris played two seasons at Pasadena City College, where he was also an All-Conference Punter. Chris then transferred to Duke University on a full ride football scholarship, where he was a two year starter. Upon completing his senior year, he was invited to perform workouts for NFL teams on Pro-Day. As a Free Agent, he has performed private workouts for the Seattle Seahawks and Philadelphia Eagles.
Chris began working as a Sports Performance Trainer in February 2009. His role includes developing sports training programs for a range of clients, including one-on-one training, groups and teams. As an NASM certified personal trainer, Chris has worked with professional athletes, business professionals, high school, college and youth athletes.
The dedication Chris has put towards training began after an injury to his kicking leg. Chris sought out training methods to correct, prevent, and avoid losing valuable time. He found poor flexibility, and lack of attention to detail in technique led to his injuries, as well as seeing how these same issues impacted other athletes and those training.
Applying these lessons and techniques, specifically, strengthening the lumbo-pelvic hip complex, Chris was able to place greater demands on his mind and body. Focusing his training on this area produced efficient movements that resulted in his getting better results both on the field and off. Chris has developed a proprietary system of training based on these concepts, geared at attaining efficient and measurable results.
With gyms focusing on the luxuries and commodities of fitness without stressing results, the walls of the gym confine fitness to one time, location, and setting. Training outside this traditional setting produces a level of fitness society rarely discovers on its own.
