Chris Presta, Fitness Trainer and Holistic Nutritionist
After more than a decade helping clients thrive in fitness and in life, I can say with confidence that simple is still best. I consider myself a fitness minimalist. As far as reaching an optimal level of fitness, you really only need a couple of tools. The majority of my training programs include kettlebells, free weights, clubbells, macebells and bodyweight. Simple yes, but not easy.
As well as being a certified personal trainer, I have also earned the designation of Registered Holistic Nutritionist (R.H.N.) with the Canadian School of Natural Nutrition. My studies have reinforced my belief that the best approach to optimal health is a holistic one, in which no one factor should be considered more valuable than any other. A healthy, fulfilled, active life must be supported by a solid nutrition and spiritual foundation.
I've had the pleasure of being personally certified by kettlebell pioneer Steve Maxwell. This fitness industry icon was a founding member of the Russian Kettlebell Certification, which was the first kettlebell authority in the industry (I am also a certified RKC level 1). Maxwell is credited with being the very first person to run kettlebell classes in North America. He's still teaching and lecturing and walking the talk in his late 60's and he continues to inspire me in so many ways.
Among my other accreditations, I'm also a certified Box N Burn trainer through former Olympic medalist Tony Jeffries. Boxing is one of the best ways to improve your fitness, boost your mood and have a great time while doing it. The Box N Burn program has been recognized by Men's Fitness Magazine as "the #1 Gym in California".
