Chris Sweet / Coach

Chris grew up in Oklahoma around family that suffered from heart attacks, diabetes, and cancer. At 19 he joined the United States Marine Corps, where he spent five years as an Infantryman.  After coming home, Chris suffered from outbursts and confusion due to Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).  He was prescribed medication to treat his PTSD.  A fellow Veteran introduced Chris to CrossFit, which eventually helped him get off his medication.  “Seeing so much camaraderie and teamwork put into the workouts reminded me of a Marine Corps philosophy of We Suffer Together, We Succeed Together."  Now, completely off his medication and a CrossFit L1 Coach, Chris hopes to inspire other people to lead healthy life.  “CrossFit may seem like its too much and only for the ultra-fit, but like I found out, it’s actually perfect for acquiring and maintaining a healthier quality of life.”
