“I have had the pleasure of employing Chris Kallevag as my personal trainer/exercise coach for the past 8 years. In that time I have gone from an aging and somewhat out of shape 53 year old to having a body and conditioning that would be the envy of most 30 year old men. I attribute Chris's training expertise to the combined Physiotherapy/ Physical Trainer Degrees he possesses as well as his life long dedication to his own physical conditioning.

We first met in 2002 when I felt my attempt to stay young and fit was fatally flawed in respect to the former objective and failing me in the latter. During the period of the next couple of years you designed a series of programs which saw me graduate from a running only program to an ever more sophisticated training program. This involved comprehensive muscle training and cardiovascular exercise, all of which I may say I thoroughly enjoyed. We would meet on a regular basis at which time you would introduce a new program and take me through it so I understood the exercises and their objectives. Helpful for a failing mind you also provided illustrated hard copy so I could refer to it as necessary.
I very much enjoyed our relationship and found you to be most professional and capable. I recommend you to anyone lucky enough to be considering your services.

"I came out of the Jane Fonda arobic workouts era, and I loved it. All that high tempo dance type movements of the 1980s, however, didn't translate well into the gyms of the late 1990s. I dutifully lifted weights, but would slack off as I found it boring, at times embarressing (when I would sit on a machine backwards by mistake), and intimidating (while seated besides an athlete lifting massive weights next to my five pounders). So I limped along for years, until Chris Kallevag was recommended to me.
Chris custom designed my program according to my body and personality type. I like variety, so he constantly changed my routine, and found creative ways for me to lift weights. He also took into account my weaknesses, and adjusted the program to encourage me to do exercises that I wanted to avoid. I have a weakness in one knee, and Chris went to great lengths to find ways for me to do those all important squats without pain.
Chris is very interesting to talk to, because he explores all avenues of health, both physical and spiritual. He is incredibly professional, and remains focussedthroughout the workout. He understands the mechanics of the body, and has no hesitation in telling you to see your family doctor, if he feels that there is an issue that is beyond his field of expertise.
His gym is quiet and private. No more searching for parking, looking for a locker, waiting for a machine to be free. With Chris as your trainer, you no longer have to take responsibility for motivation, the hardest part of remaining fit for life. Chris will become your motivation."
