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.

    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.

    I don't like that everyone's page is the same we are all individuals. I liked having the colored backgrounds.

    Not happy with the changes! Now I can't change my banner - and it is not one that I want to keep. Was just trying it out for a bit. Love the option of being able to change occasionally.

    But, I do so love this site - so encouraging and fun. Have found a number of friends there.
    Thanks for much for keeping it going for us.
