I have been working with Chris for about 3 months. I am down 19 lbs, and my resting heart rate is 53, down from 68 a year ago with a BP of 114 over 70. He has been getting me ready for a week-long hike in the Sierras with college buddies from the class of '72. And his help with my strength and endurance. I feel like I’m in the best shape since my 20’s. Gregory McLane Dallas Tx

After two neck surgeries, I had not played golf in ten years. My goal was to get back on the golf course and play at Pebble Beach again. Chris improved my flexibility and core strength along with fixing my ugly swing and within a year I played five rounds in six days at Pebble! I could not have done it without Chris Ownbey."

Chris has been my Personal Trainer for over 3 years. My wife started working out with him also. We each do two separate 30 minute workouts with him every week. Our workouts have included strength, flexibility, and cardio training. He keeps us motivated with ever changing routines. He is ego free and always happy. It is good to have a trainer that specializes in people my age.

I've never workout out before. I looked for group classes at my local gym. But they did not fit my schedule. A friend told me about Fit Over 40. Chris is helping me improve my strength. He is also helping me with my overall fitness and posture. I have more energy throughout the day. I recommend the Chris Ownbey fit Over 40 Fitness program. Lidia, Plano, TX
Chris is a fantastic personal trainer! So glad I found him. Training with him twice a week has definitely increased my level of fitness, made me stronger and helped me address my recurring lower back pain successfully. Each training session is different and tailored to my needs, which keeps them fun and challenging. Best personal trainer ever!
