Kris has always thrived on competition, he feels that it pushes him to adapt and become a better version of himself regardless of failures or success. He played Division 1 rugby at Indiana University of PA there he attained a Bachelors of Science degree in Kinesiology while furthering his knowledge in the fitness world. To help keep his competitive edge in rugby Kris found CrossFit- he quickly developed a love for the new sport and the amazing community it provided. Through all of the training Kris has done he credits CrossFit to help prepare him for one of his best seasons in rugby coming up just a few games short of a National Title.
With his background and experience of several different fields in fitness he was a bit hesitant to allow himself to open up to the CrossFit methodology. But once he did, he found that CrossFit and CrossFit nutrition helped him constantly improve his strength, speed, and mobility all the while looking and feeling like a new person. More than just fitness, CrossFit impacted every aspect of his life helping evolve his way of working out, competing, and helping others. This is when Kris grew even more passion and enthusiasm for fitness, health, and human movement. That passion and enthusiasm is what drives him to help anyone that walks through the doors at CrossFit tantrum. He truly wants to help anyone explore their fitness potential and improve their longevity through general physical preparedness that is CrossFit.
Kris loves to help others by sharing his passion for fitness and the experience he has gathered in his own pursuit.
Outside of CrossFit, Kris never takes a break whether he is hiking up mountains, bouldering, or continuing to learn more about fitness to constantly grow his knowledge on how to help others.
