Chris Williamson

Coach

Seeing the struggles people with obesity-related illnesses faced on a daily basis played a major role in my decision to become a coach.

Born and raised in small town Alabama, I would describe my hometown as a place where life is simple and people are friendly. Growing up I played on several sports teams, but no one ever taught me that a consistent functional movement program emphasizing mobility, conditioning and strength could dramatically improve my performance. Furthermore, Alabama ranks among the top 5 unhealthiest states in the nation.

Seeing the struggles people with obesity-related illnesses (diabetes, heart disease, etc.) faced on a daily basis played a major role in my decision to become a coach.

Fast forward 5 years and I am living in one of the top 5 healthiest cities in the country, spending my days helping folks become healthier and happier. In addition to my work in the US, I regularly travel to Bolivia and Colombia to teach youth-centered fitness and nutrition workshops.

CenterPointe was founded on the belief that one of the best investments we can make in our futures is to invest in our health. I couldn't agree more.
