THE Guide

Free guide for those wanting to exercise more but don’t always have the time, energy or desire. 

Hi. I'm Chris Barlics.​

Since 2005, I’ve been helping people over 45, attain and maintain their desired quality of life through fitness, so they can continue doing what they love, with the ones they love, without limitations.

I hold numerous degrees and certifications in areas such as exercise science, nutrition and psychology – including being a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (CSCS) through the National Strength & Conditioning Association and a Certified Health & Wellness Coach (NBC-HWC) from the National Board of Medical Examiners.

When I’m not coaching clients, I serve as the Director of Education of a hospital-affiliated fitness company. I am a speaker, blogger, podcaster and most importantly – a husband and father.
