Working with Chris has been awesome. I came to him at 8 weeks out from my first bodybuilding competition. I was starting to panic and was about to make drastic changes to my macros and cardio routine, but then I saw he was accepting clients and decided to email and see if he could help. Within the 8 weeks I went from 175 to 163 and came in ready for the show. Chris really does go above and beyond. When I came to him I had no idea how to pose (semi embarrassed of the first photos I ever sent him lol) he corrected all of my poses and even critiqued my posing routine over a FaceTime call. Without Chris I would’ve came in looking pretty awkward up on stage. Lol. Anytime I had questions about anything I could contact him at anytime and receive a response without having to wait forever. I would recommend him to anybody looking to take their physique to the next level and to help make sure they come in stage ready. Awesome coach and super patient (even though I probably worried him sick the last week with the amount of questions I had). Can’t thank him enough!

It was so great to have Chris as my coach. He always kept me motivated while also teaching me better ways to keep my body healthy and in shape. It is also encouraging to see someone who has a busy life of his own but is still able to keep up with his healthy lifestyle.On Chris’s program I went from 147lbs to 120lbs. Not only have I lost a lot of fat and gained muscle, but my confidence has raised up as well. I was always very insecure on my physique, which lead to starving myself and then working out for hours within a day. I had a terrible self-image and it was starting to really bother me so when my brother introduced Chris’s If It Fits Your Macros program to me I was so excited. When I started off I was just wanting to make my coach proud but then it became something so enjoyable to me and I wanted to do this to make myself healthier. After working with Chris I learned that I could enjoy food in moderation, workout without wearing myself out and that I could actually enjoy my life and myself. I am so thankful for Chris being mentioned to me and the improvement I made working with him. Chris is an amazing coach and I’d recommend him to anyone and everyone!

Without Chris I would’ve came in looking pretty awkward up on stage. Lol. Anytime I had questions about anything I could contact him at anytime and receive a response without having to wait forever. I think what I loved about working with Chris is how upfront and personal he is with his life- & that he has one! Unlike so many coaches who are so strict and unreasonable that you feel you have to cut everything out of your life except fitness. I was smaller to begin with so the progress may not seem like a “transformation” to some, but I assure you for me it 100% was. & as a girl the best feeling ever is fitting those clothes you’ve stashed at the back of your closet for that “someday”. I’ve always been self conscious and unhappy with my physique and felt I had plateaued on any progress. That my body just wasn’t made to improve anymore. I was so hard on myself mentally and just couldn’t shake the negativity. I started working with Chris after my boyfriend got a program and was loving it. From the get go, Chris was positive, motivating, & encouraging. He listened to what I wanted, what my concerns were, & gently critiqued any “off track” moments I had. Which only made me want to work harder and improve more. Where usually I would feel so guilty and reverse my progress by falling off the wagon even more. When I was feeling discouraged at any point, he was there to get me re motivated again. Having a coach like Chris to keep you accountable on your eating & training makes a world of difference! It started by wanting to do good for my coach & not back track on weekly check in’s and it turned into wanting to do good for ME. Body image is definitely an area where at some point in your life I think everyone struggles with, if your tired of starting over and tired of not getting the results like I was, get a program with Chris! He changed my perspective and helped me find the perfect balance in my life with health & fitness while still enjoying being 23! So THANK YOU! & my next progress photos will be even better ;)I would recommend him to anybody looking to take their physique to the next level and to help make sure they come in stage ready. Awesome coach and super patient (even though I probably worried him sick the last week with the amount of questions I had). Can’t thank him enough!

My time with Chris has been extremely educational and inspirational (still is) not only because I was able to get on stage and perform more than I was hoping for, but also because with the information I was able to gathered about myself (physically and mentally) and with Chris’ guidance through this experience I can honestly say that I became a better person and more appreciative of this fascinating “world” of fitness and bodybuilding. After 8 years of constantly going to the gym and enjoying every bit of it, I woke up one day and decided to put my physique to a test - getting on stage and compete. Highly recommended by a fellow fitness fanatic / internet friend, Chris’ name popped up. I checked him out and besides the fact that his coaching prices are very reasonable and competitive, if not the best on the market, I was able to relate to Chris more than any other coach because I am also married and have two kids - I thought Chris will understand me more because of these aspects of life which will need to be managed and balanced as well through my prep process.

 From the get-go, Chris was very responsive and professional. Our communication protocols were established right away, and after providing him with some of my personal information, Chris hit the nail with the nutrition and training that I needed for my prep. I have done some “cutting” on my own in the past, but never with professional advice which makes tons of difference. Week in and week out, Chris was on top of how I was progressing and the adjustments I needed to continue making progress towards the goal. He gave me great advice and feedback on my posing and routine as well which are as key as having the best physique in the world – if you do not know how to present yourself no matter how ripped and conditioned you are chances are you may not even place or be called out. Chris was instrumental on all these key ingredients for my success. The more I was seeing myself in the mirror leading up to the show, the more excited I was getting to go out there and have some fun – I did that and more. Until the last minute even during and after competition date, Chris was overseeing things at all times with key advice and recommendations – it was like he physically was there for me. I competed in two NPC shows near my town, in the Master’s and Open Classic Physique divisions. I won the Master’s in one and came second on the other, and came second on both Open divisions. This was above and beyond my expectations, especially considering the fact that you are competing in an un-tested field of competitors. The line-up was very tough and competitive, all competitors showcased amazing physiques. Being a natural bodybuilder, Chris and I knew I was probably in a disadvantage and that we had to be realistic. Even with that, Chris never doubted on his capabilities and experience as a coach and what he can do for me. Overall, he exceeded my expectations and I feel that I surpassed my goal. Aside of attaining the best physique of my life, I feel that with Chris’ help and support I was able to enjoy myself and I learn far beyond what the eye sees. Having a coach was absolutely necessary for my success and I would highly recommend Chris’ services to anyone that wants to compete or even to better yourself. Chris and I are friends now and his friendship means more than me than any medals or recognition I have attained so far. He is truly a great human being and an amazing person. We keep in touch now and he is always accessible for any questions I may have. His advice post-contest has also help me a lot to come back to my normal self as being in a strict diet is no joke. Bottom line, his results are guaranteed – check other people’s testimonials and you can see that Chris has experience on all types of physiques and goals.

When I got back from Washington, D.C. I felt so disgusted with myself. I knew I had to make a change for good. Somehow I came across Chris Elkins and with his help I was able to make progress towards my goal. A lot of hard work and dedication has gone to this. I have a job, full time student, in the Army, that’s not including family and friends, to say the least, I’m always busy. There’s a lot of sacrifice between these two pictures that only some people will ever know. Still not even close to where I want to be. My final goal is to win a bodybuilding show. Long way to go…

237lbs to 191.2lbs

In January 2016 I decided I was ready to train for and compete in my first fitness division competition. I started the process slowly on my own but I knew I really needed the accountability and help. In February I had asked people in a large online group for recommendations for a coach and I received several responses. Chris’ Facebook page was the only one I saw that actually looked like he worked out himself and had clients. I had a gut feeling that Chris would be a great coach and that he was just genuinely a nice guy, so I sent him a message. He got back to me right away (which was surprising, not many coaches do) and asked me a few questions. I was so happy he took me on as a client due to the short notice of the competition date. It turned out my gut feeling was right! With his guidance and support I was able to lose around 15lbs and reshape my physique drastically! I made it to the competition in May and had a lot of fun. From there I qualified for the Provincial level competition in August. We decided to keep working and I competed in August at the next show and qualified for the National level competition! Woot! 

 Competition prep is not easy and having someone there for you every step of the way is so incredibly helpful, words cannot express how awesome Chris is! I probably whined and complained so much but he remained patient with me and kept me motivated and focused on my goals. I have had a few coaches in the past and the one big thing that stuck out for me was the fact that he answered my questions right away! He is there when you need him, for anything. I never had to wait a week for a response or feel like he didn’t care. Chris Elkins is the best!!! I am looking forward to working with him again throughout my offseason and competition prep in 2018. I HIGHLY recommend Chris to anyone looking for the best support, experience and knowledge to be gained.

Where do I even start?

 It’s almost been a year since I started working with Chris and what a year it has been! I signed up for coaching with Chris to start my very first contest prep into women’s physique with very little knowledge in the ways of prepping for a show.

 I had lost 40kg on my own over the last few years but after my last cut managed to put a fair amount of fat back on and knew that if I wanted to be stage ready I would need the correct guidance to achieve this and after seeing so many awesome results from other clients I knew that Chris was the coach for me. 

Under Chris’ guidance I prepped for my first show and have been the leanest I have ever been on my weight loss journey placing 2nd in my very first show. 

 Not only am I the leanest I’ve been but also the strongest, suffering for some mobility issues Chris has been so incredibly help with working with me on these issues and now I’m the strongest I’ve ever been and getting stronger week by week. 

 The amount of time, detail and dedication Chris puts into his clients is awe-inspiring and has allowed me to connect with other clients over the course of my prep where I’ve found limitless amounts of support and motivation over the course of this year. 

 It has truly been an honour to work with Chris and I’m looking forward to continue doing so throughout my offseason and prep for 2018, can’t say enough about this guy and the incredible experience of being coached by him.
