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: 58,527

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.

    I also want to leave my comment on how I will miss reading the blog by Lynda. She is like an old friend to me. I look forward to her blogs she keeps me laughing,please don't make her quit blogging. We need her as much as she needs us. Please reconsider!

    I, too, count on LEANJEAN6's daily blogs. She tells us to drink our water and eat our vegetables and get our steps in. Again and again and again. Because we need to hear it, to get it in our heads, so we can do it. She's shared her saying, "The whiter the bread, the sooner you're dead." And that her normal-weight hubby never eats anything sweet. And she's able to get a blog written EVERY DAY and she's in her 70's! How amazing is that? She's a good writer, and shares bits of her personal life as well, which I enjoy.
    I, too, have used offensive terms in past blogs, but once I learned how and why it was offensive, I quit using them. Luckily, I guess, my following on spark is much smaller, so I was not asked to quit blogging.
    Honestly, I expected LEANJEAN6 to blog until she was no longer able. And I expected one of her children to let us know of her fate. Perhaps naive of me, but spark will be dimmer without her.
