I began working out with Chris Litten in the early 90s, when I was in my late 20s, before he owned his own gym. I knew immediately that Chris was different from the other trainers. His expertise, forward thinking, and his ability to connect with people set him apart from other personal trainers. When I need help with my fitness goals, the only place I will go for help is Chris’s gym, Body Basics. I’m a teacher on a very tight budget, so I am only go to pay for something I am 100% certain is worth every penny. I know what Chris expects of himself, and I know his staff will be educated, personable and helpful. Your goals become their goals. You’ll find Body Basic’s mission is clear. Body Basics is about keeping you healthy, fit and enjoying exercise for the rest of your life.
Over the years my goals, fitness levels, and exercise routines have changed. Before pregnancy, I was focused on cycling. Chris designed workouts that helped me improve my cycling. Chris had Boot Camps before they became popular in the mid-90s. His camps were incredibly challenging, rewarding and an absolute blast. The group dynamic Chris created allowed me to get through some of the toughest workouts I had ever been through because of the laughter and support of the group. When I was pregnant, I kept working out with Body Basic’s support. Chris was the one who radically changed my life when he told me I needed to sign up for a running event. This spurred me on to join a running group. I never saw myself as a runner; I now have run 2 marathons and many half marathons. When I needed help with improving my running, Body Basics was there with the workouts I needed. I worked with Mike; a great coach that taught me a great deal and helped me improved my pace.
