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!

Member Since: 11/19/2001

SparkPoints: 57,276

Fitness Minutes: 44,438

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 use the phone app to keep my streaks when I don't get on my computer.

So pleased to see your note on starting over. Occassionally, life intervenes and miss a log in so a streak is interrupted. It is not the end of the journey but the beginning of a new one. 🌞

Hi Chris,
loved listening to your interview with your friend Alan Taylor.
I have read your story several times over and it "sparks" me every time.
I have gained success through your Spark Programs and always grateful to have found you and your wonderful site on line.

Many thanks again and may God Bless You and your family.

Hugs

Hello, Thanks for all the great encouragement and support! You're the reason I'm on Spark People -6 years now?
I mentioned this before but thought I'd put it out there again -hoping you could keep in mind to add a more colorful update to our (somewhat plain) meal planner page. It would be much more inspiring if the meal suggestions had pictures of them. That way we become encouraged to actually prepare them and have an idea what they should look like portion wise. Pictures are a strong incentive.
Anyway, thank you for all you do! Hope you are enjoying the new year! :)
