Transitional Fitness Trainer IV
First became interested in body balancing while working in physical therapy clinics. In this environment, he noticed that many patients would return for the same ailment. This pattern led him to design a fitness program designed to correct the body’s imbalances, rather than apply the same exercies to all. The model for this program is the basis for all EquiVita’s fitness services: Comprehensive Assessment, looking at the whole person - past, current and future (goals), targeted program design and specific exercises to transition the body toward the goals.

Christopher started training in the martial arts at the age of eight. He attained his black belt of Tae Kwon Do in the style of Ji Do Kwan when he was twelve and then achieved his 3rd Dan belt when he was around twenty. Christopher entered the United States Navy shortly after high school and spent over 8 years traveling and living abroad in countries such as Japan, Korea, and Thailand.
In those travels he had the opportunity to study numerous martial arts in the specific countries of origin. While abroad he discovered the similarity of physical techniques of arts such as Eskrima from the Phillipines and Bojutsu from Okinawa. More importantly, he was privileged to experience the cultural differences and history from numerous teachers, providing him with a unique experience and perspective in his own teachings of physical, mental conditioning, and self defense. Christopher has taught at the college level classes in human behavior, situational response, and the bodies response to stress during times of crisis. Christopher looks forward to bringing his experiences to EquiVita and sharing them with you.
Transitional Fitness Trainer I
Drew is dedicated to listening and helping each client achieve his or her personal fitness goals. After struggling with his own health and having to undergo emergency surgery a few years ago, Drew became dedicated to getting his body into shape as well as his overall well being. While succeeding in achieving his own goals, he watched as others struggled and complained about “not getting anywhere” and he naturally became more and more interested in helping others reach their potential. Fate then handed him the opportunity to work towards an occupation where he can help others when he was laid-off from his Graphic Design position, allowing him the time to return to school and work towards the rewarding career change. Drew’s goals are to continue to learn and study in order to better assist each and every client the best way possible. He is still dedicated to maintaining his own health as well, running and exercising almost every day and training for marathons. Since changing his lifestyle, Drew has never had a recurring problem from the disease that plagued him years earlier.
