A Certified Physical Fitness Specialist with over 30 years experience training others, and founder of The Best Weigh Center For Ultimate Health, Chris has been offering the most practical use of your time with these Initial Best Weigh Classes plus Best Weigh Coaching.
Initial Best Weigh Class Get the lost "secret" fundamentals of fitness and the lost "secret" fundamentals of nutrition as they apply to the superior raw food diet. Nobody applies these rules, and nobody gets the results that Chris gets for each and every one of his clients. Some are shown here. Chris has designed and has been teaching and facilitating a program that is so efficient yet so practical and complete. It works every time. Two sessions with Chris as your personal fitness specialist and personal wellness chef/ educator will tea you how you can exercise and eat The Best Weigh.
Get into better shape than you have even been. Also experience genuine health for the first time in your life. Learn the most efficient strength, cardiovascular and flexibility secrets that few trainers know. Chris literally transforms people, and his track record goes back three decades of remarkable results starting with his own amazing non-steroid morph from a gangly 133 lb. to a muscular 205 lb. super athlete. He maintained this strength and physique on a 100% whole plant food diet without supplements for over twenty years. 100% raw vegan since 2001 and still extremely muscular with incredibly improved endurance at age 51 (as of 2010) that surpasses his fitness level at age 20! Two sessions, approx. five hours total ....................................................................................................................450.00 (Also includes over $100 worth of Chris' delicious raw food plan food to take home)
Best Weigh Food & Fitness Coaching Twice per week. Once you learn how to do cardiovascular exercise the quick and easy way, you can do that on your own. You never need a trainer for that. But strength training is critical as it is the most important component of fitness, (See the ACSM) since 1) the majority of people get injured and die prematurely at a late age due to a fall and subsequent hospital infection originally due to a fall, caused by weak muscles, especially surrounding the hip. 2) Most people want to have a strong heart, but heart health has never been proven to be the result of endurance THR exercise but from the proper diet, So cardio is a snap, and weight training the best way is what you must leaner. Tip: it does not focus on little dumbbells, sweaty smelly gyms or chrome and fern health spas, nor does it utilize inner-outer thigh machines or "pec decks". Proper weight training that truly protects you for the rest of your life is a lost art. Chris has mastered it for 33 years. You must have normal joint function to take this class in order to begin the training to get the best results. If you have any problems with your knees, low back or other joints, Chris is quite expert at rehabilitation but it is advisable that you consult an experienced sports/medical physician and get cleared for basic exercise before you sign up just so that you are aware that your best results will only come after you restore your joints to normal function. What do I mean by "best" results. Well, the majority of my male (and female clients, believe it or not) want to build significant muscle, get much stronger for their jobs or children or sports, or they want to firm up to a high degree. If you are a man, for example who desires big muscles, then you must be in normal condition at least in order to begin training for this, the most demanding of routines. Not time consuming, but demanding in the most rewarding way. But if you are suffering from a "bad" knee or "bad" back, then that must be addressed first for obvious reasons. If you are serious about getting into the best shape of your life then you will be serious about rehab. You are in good hands with this program since Chris has many decades experience and knows all the best ways to restore your physical condition or build it if you never had it.
in addition to two personal fitness sessions per week, you will also learn hands-on how to eat like a raw athlete even if you have never been raw before. From the best raw vegan natural sports drinks. smoothies and snacks to the absolute best diet for strength, endurance and muscle, Chris will change your life before your very eyes. you get to take home a special meal each time you come to work out. Or, you can book a longer block (when available) and opt to take Chris' famous RawSkilz Class meal by meal as you come for your training.
Ongoing Best Weigh Food and Fitness Coaching One month at a time, two life-changing sessions per week! ......................................................................................$1400
Specificity, Overload, Progression & Regularity
WHAT MATTERS ARE KEY EXERCISES, FORM & PROGRESSION. (The only ones benefiting from 95% of the exercise equipment found in gyms or spas are those people who unload it off the trucks.)
How long you train in the gym is meaningless. WHAT GETS RESULTS IS HOW WELL YOU TRAIN. (Most people think they have to spend a lot of time when the truth is that they need to exert more effort in the proper direction with the RIGHT EXERCISES.)
How many supplements you take is meaningless. WHAT MATTERS IS HOW YOU FEEL AT THE MOMENT YOU WAKE UP. (Many trainers either take steroids if they are competitive, and they take bags of supplements that weaken the immune system, cause body odor, acne, and digestive problems to name a few. The best way is to eat real food and save your body the work of hard digestion. Also save your pocketbook. These supplements are simply the result of high cost brainwashing as you will prove to yourself once you discover how well your body can work without them. If you need stimulation or motivation to exercise, then you are not functioning properly. Once you eat right, your desire for activity will surprise you.
HOW BIG A TRAINER IS, IS RELATIVELY MEANINGLESS. What matters most is their condition before and after, withOUT drugs or superior genetics, their track record, their longevity, and how many people they have actually trasnformed.

CHRIS OBLITERATES THE PROTEIN MYTH!
HOW CAN ONE CAN GET "IN SHAPE" WITHOUT "ANIMAL PROTEIN." or protein in general?
THE QUESTION SHOULD BE...HOW DOES A 1500 LB. BULL, 800 LB. GORILLA OR OTHER LARGE ANIMAL GET IT'S PROTEIN? (They are all vegan.)
CONSIDER SOME MORE FACTS...
MOTHER'S MILK IS ONLY 1.8 - 6% PROTEIN AND THAT IS WHEN YOU GROW THE MOST!
100 CALORIES OF BROCCOLI IS 11.4 GRAMS OF PROTEIN, but 100 CALORIES OF STEAK IS ONLY 5.2
Not to mention that animal flesh and dairy always putrifies and rots in your colon, producing highly toxic carcinogenic effects.
HUMANS ARE NOT PHYSIOLOGICALLY OR CHEMICALLY DESIGNED TO ASSIMILATE FLESH OR ANIMAL PRODUCTS OF ANY KIND. WE THRIVE ON FRUITS, VEGETABLES, NUTS and SEEDS.
OUR BEST DIET IS VEGAN and FRESH RAW. PEOPLE WHO EAT THIS WAY HAVE THE FEWEST DISEASES AND MOST PRODUCTIVE LIVES BY FAR. ALSO THE BEST LONGEVITY.
NOTED DOCTORS SUCH AS MCDOUGAL, ESSELSTYN AND ORNISH ROUTINELY REVERSE HEART DISEASE AND CANCER DAILY. THEY ARE NOT POPULAR WITH THE MEGA-PROFITALBE MEDICAL INDUSTRY, YET PEOPLE ARE DEMANDING THE TRUTH. (There is hope - even for NFI's) *
THE MOST FAMOUS, TRIPLE REVIEWED AND LARGEST NUTRTIONAL STUDY EVER DONE, THE WELL KNOWN CHINA PROJECT HEADED BY T. COLIN CAMPBELL WILL FILL YOU IN IF YOU ARE STILL IN THE DARK.
THE DEVASTATING LACK OF KNOWLEDGE and AWARENESS IN OUR MEDICAL, PHARMACEUTICAL and SO-CALLED "HEALTH" INDUSTRIES IS DUE TO THE DRIVE FOR PROFIT, NOT THE DRIVE TO HEAL!
THE WORD "PROTEIN" IS INCREDIBLY MISUNDERSTOOD. THE HIGHEST QUALITY PROTEINS ARE FOUND IN FRESH GREEN VEGETABLES, NOT IN THE SECOND-HAND FLESH OF DEAD ANIMALS. Even the carnivorous tiger's muscles are built from the grass that the zebra ate. All protein is created from the action of the sun on plants.
Compare frugivore/ herbivore (OURS) to carnivore (CAT):Cats have short digestive tracts one and a half times the length of their bodies. Ours is six times. Cats have acid saliva, ours is alkaline. Cats have acid stomachs. Ours are 100 times less acid. Cats have hinged jaws. Ours move side to side. Cats have teats all the way down their abdomens. We have only two. Cats sweat from their tongues. We sweat through our pores. Cats have claws. We do not. Cats have long sharp canine teeth. We don't. Our central incisors are dominant. Cats instinctively stalk their prey. When was the last time you salivated when you saw a poodle or road kill? No science can debate the irrefutable physiological and anatomical facts that we are not carnivores by any means. Science and medicine also shows that we flourish on a diet of primarily fruits and vegetables, and even more on a diet of exclusively fruits and vegetables.
WE CAN ALL EAT A LIMITED AMOUNT OF CHICKEN AND FISH, ETC. AND "SURVIVE" BUT WE WILL NEVER THRIVE AND WE WILL ALWAYS BE PLAGUED BY DISEASE UNTIL WE ADOPT AT LEAST A HIGH RAW VEGAN DIET. The Law Of Vital Adaptation. Remember the doves in the bell jar? Your body has as its prime objective, survival, not health. It will do its best to adapt. But the cost is heart attack, cancer, diabetes, obesity, etc., suffering, and premature death.
You can "build" your body with dead animals and low quality materials, just as cheap homes are built. But their quality is short lived. Or you can create and maintain your body with the materials it was designed to have. Build with dead bricks that self-destruct or build with live bricks that serve you well.
HEALTHY is such a loose term. The truly healthy diet does not catch on because most people do not put forth the effort to change. Eating a diet of fresh, enzyme-rich fruits and vegetables will, at first set a cleansing or detoxifying process in effect. This causes weight loss. (Putting out the garbage). Most are brainwashed into thinking that this is bad, so they stop the process and go back to their old ways. But those who stick with it PROPERLY, are rewarded beyond their wildest dreams.
* NFI stands for Non Functional Intelligence, or "No Freakin' Idea" that your diet and your health are inextricably connected. THIS IS NOT A DRESS REHEARSAL! Do not take it lightly. (But please do not enlist me unless you are truly ready for enlightenment and CHANGE, the dreaded "C" word. And don't forget EFFORT, that dreaded "E" word.)
Being a 133 lbs. 6 ft. tall honors student from NYC led me to weight training. Even though I was a "nerdy", genetically unblessed non-athlete, I discovered how to create 75 lbs. of muscle in less than two hours a week, while going from a 33 waist to a 32 in the process! (Every ounce of muscle was difficult for me!) I LEARNED THE BASICS OF FITNESS AND HOW TO GAIN MUSCLE IN THE LIBRARY. I SOON LEARNED, TOO, THAT GYMS ARE THE WORST PLACES TO LEARN HOW TO GET INTO SHAPE. In 1985 I discovered the major benefits of a vegan diet. By 1985 I was an even more muscular 205 lbs. when I realized the PROTEIN MYTH once and for all! (The PROTEIN MARKETING still makes me smile, even today!) My RAW upgrade was an even bigger discovery. check THIS out: at 19 years old, jogging four flights of 14-step bleachers winded me. At 44 years old I did 39 flights. And I HAD NOT DONE ANY SPECIFIC CARDIO WORK IN 25 YEARS. So much for right ventricle hypertrophy! By the way, my life took another turn when, in 1998 I was struck head-on while stopped at a light. I never fully recovered as my lower spine was crushed, accompanied by major radiculopathy to my left side, especially my leg. I was crawling on carpenter's knee pads for six months at home but I still managed to exercise, and of course enjoy a healing diet. I had hurt my knee very severely a few years back while moving into a house, and I had rehabilitated that on my own as well, so I was optimistic. The pictures you see here are not me at my best, for sure, but at least it shows what is possible when faced with adversity.
Chris gained over 75 lbs. naturally (no drugs/ he never even drank coffee/ not even an aspirin since 1985) and lost an inch off his waist in the process!

1985 working hard.
"Gaining weight from 133 to over 200 pounds was not easy for me. I had to force feed five to seven times a day and continue a very strenuous bodybuilding routine two times per week. (Of course that was when i ate cooked food. Now, I know the difference between pure muscle and simple muscle which is just forcing undigested protein waste into the cells!) According to Steve Mahalik, Vinnie Sferra, and Tom Meigel, all pro bodybuilders- they said that they rarely saw anyone train as hard as I did. But I trained hard, not long. I had a retail business, a wife, a house, and a life outside to live. I still managed to transform my body. I have since learned that muscle size is not the same thing as pure muscle tissue. Now I am 20 pounds lighter, stronger pound for pound, with at least double the endurance (triple if you five me four weeks to train) and no fatigue whatsoever. I can go twice the distance and do double the work as compared to 20 years ago when I ate cooked food, thinking that I was 'healthy". Now I know what health feels like with THE BEST WEIGH DIET.
