"He's the Rich Froning of running." "He doesn't just talk it. He walks it and that's what I think is important in any sport ... it builds some respect that you can't create. You have to earn it." "The biggest thing I learned from doing all this work with him is pacing appropriately, and how much that really makes a difference."
2nd place (2013) & 3rd place at the 2014 CrossFit Games
"The best running coach/program designer around." "Thanks to @hinshaw363, I have slowed down and begun developing a true aerobic base for 2015. The man is unreal at programming for endurance - a long standing weakness for yours truly."
2nd place at the 2012 CrossFit Games
I've been working with Chris for the last year - he has taken my endurance training to the next level. Based on his extensive knowledge, he drafts a plan to help athletes achieve their true potential. You can't help but enjoy running with such a passionate coach who motivates you to work hard.

One of the most talented coaches I have ever met. When it comes to understanding endurance and building capacity for CrossFitters in those modalities he is the best. He has helped me so much!
5th Place NorCal Team Member at the 2014 CrossFit Games
I am by no means a natural runner, and it's something I have always struggled with. Since working with Coach Chris I have improved on all aspects of my running including my form, my capacity for longer runs, and my speed. But the thing I like most about Chris is how positive he is.
5x CrossFit Games Competitor
He is the person who has somehow made running fun and tolerable for all of NorCal CrossFit. There is a lot of talk from top coaches in the CF games about building an aerobic base and I think there is a ton of value here.
5th place NorCal Team Member at the 2014 CrossFit Games
At the Games, there was a lot of running, a lot of longer events. Chris helped me tremendously like on the Row, Naughty Nancy the Burden Run, all that...everything Chris did helped me in every single workout. Teaching me pacing; I would definitely give him credit for how well I did at the Games.

There will be two practical application workouts, including a run workout that focuses on the importance of pacing based on the standard list of programming variables (interval distance, workout distance, amount of rest, type of rest). Participants will test their individualized paces developed during the seminar to perform this workout. Coach Chris has an equivalent workout for participants that would prefer to row. The second workout is a ballistic based strength endurance workout that will recruit fast twitch muscle fibers and extend their working capacity.
