Hello SparkFriends! If you are interested in learning more about the history of SparkPeople and how we can make it free, here is an article that talks about this .

Please note: Since we have millions of members, unfortunately I can't answer SparkMails that ask questions about someone's program or about site features. Please ask these on the message boards and you're likely to get better support than I could give.

I love to see so many people using SparkPeople to reach all types of goals. Each new success story we see motivates us to keep making the site better. Thanks to all of you - and our great team - SparkPeople has turned into a grassroots movement that is spreading around the world!

SparkCheers!

Chris (SparkGuy)
SparkPeople Founder & CEO


Member Since: 11/19/2001

Fitness Minutes: 51,507

My Goals:
1) Working on my new and improved fitness streak! I'm currently at 170 days, headed towards 200 if I can! (remember, this isn't extreme - I only need 10 minutes to keep the streak alive)



2) Make SparkPeople into a company that helps millions of people (I'm the Founder and CEO of the company and am passionate about helping people reach their goals!).


My Program:
I do a well-rounded fitness program that I can fit into a very hectic lifestyle (having a young company and 2 young boys is challenging!) - most of my fitness program can be done at home. This includes cardio, strength (mostly pushups, crunches, lunges, body squats, and other body weight exercises), sprints and jump rope, stretching, and tennis-specific practice.

My wife helps me eat fairly healthy and I help motivate her on fitness - we're a good team!



Personal Information:
I live with my wonderful wife Karina in the San Francisco Bay Area (even though SparkPeople is headquartered in Cincinnati, Ohio and that will always be my hometown).


Other Information:
My wife Karina and I have 2 young and active boys. I love seeing them mimic my exercise. Some of our best quality time is exercising together, they love exercising - especially bouncing on a mini-trampoline.

    Is there a way to get cholesterol intake to be captured in foods like protein, fat, and carbs?

    Is it okay to go below the minimum calorie intake when I add in exercise I burn most of it? Is my body in starvation mode?

    Thanks for the article by Greg Presto with pictures, about 6 exercises to do after 40. It was such a boost to me to see a guy doing exercises on Spark. Our musculature is completely different than that of women, as is our flexibility. I have always had a hard time patterning my exercises after pictures and videos of women doing them. It was great to see a strong male on Spark. Glenn

    I am wondering if we are able to change colors on our new sparkpages? I can't seem to get rid of the white. I like being able to change colors around every few days. What happened??

    For the record I do not like the new spark page. It is not as user friendly, it is very impersonal, and does not motivate me in anyway to go to my spark page now and keep up with everything. I find it very discouraging and unmotivating, and does not spark me forward or to be better in anyway. What has happened sparkpeople.
