Chris Spigner

Coach

With an unwavering passion for his profession, family, friends, and the remarkable individuals he is fortunate to engage with, Chris has embarked on a life-defining journey. His introduction to the fitness world was ignited during his formative years, as he immersed myself in various sports. From those early experiences, Chris transitioned into collegiate baseball, where his contributions played a pivotal role in guiding his team to the National Championship game. Subsequently, Chris ventured into minor league baseball, representing various teams, including the prestigious Boston Red Sox.

However, Chris’ path took a transformative turn when he encountered his own share of injuries and underwent numerous surgeries. During his tenure with Active Life, Chris took it upon himself to create the 7 Mile Corrective Program, a groundbreaking initiative to empower individuals dealing with injuries. Drawing from firsthand experience of the challenges accompanying injury-induced setbacks, Chris is resolutely committed to helping others discover the art of training and regain command over their fitness journey. Chris firmly believes that pain should not be an enduring companion, and he is determined to show individuals that there exists a safe and effective path toward transcending their limitations, allowing them to rekindle the active lifestyle they once cherished.
