Welcome To The Course. Let's Start Here.
2 Lectures 01:33

Welcome to the course. My name is Christopher Lee. I have been a Personal Trainer for over 10 years. I started out in High School and during that time, I didn't have a lot of money to purchase my own gym equipment or even go the gym, instead I got creative and used items around the house. I started out with an empty bottle and I filled it up with coins. That was my dumbbell. After that I started researching myself on working out using things around me. After High School, I studied for my license to become a Personal Trainer. I have experience working at gyms such as 24 Hour Fitness, Golds Gym, Planet Fitness, and many independent gyms. 

I run my own business now and I am a mobile Personal Trainer using everything around us like the park. I specialize in Plyometrics and body weight exercises but am not limited to using equipment such as barbells and pull bars. 

I enjoy training others. It's my passion. I love my job and I don't mind what other people say about me. What matters is that I see others happy and exercising to meet their goals. 

So let's do this.
