What’s up?! I’m Chase.
I’m the guy who started Incremental Gains, a personal training company dedicated to helping high achieving professionals just like you transform their lives through fitness.
I know your time is valuable, so I promise not to waste it.
I’m a StrongFirst Instructor (an elite strength and conditioning organization), a Precision Nutrition Coach (an elite nutrition organization), a FRc Mobility Specialist (an elite mobility and joint training system), a Z-Health Trainer (an elite athletic performance and functional neuroscience organization), and most importantly a Certified Nice Person. In English, that means I help people get strong, feel great, and look good naked. But let’s be honest, you’re not just looking for a great personal trainer. You’re looking for someone you can trust, someone who speaks your language, and someone who actually gives a shit. Right?
Cool, because that’s me.
Here’s a quick snapshot of who I am, what I’m all about, and why you should listen to me.
I was born in Upstate New York, grew up in Raleigh, and have called Chicago my home base since 2013. Traveling the world is my favorite thing to do. I’ve skied the Bavarian Alps in Germany, snorkeled the Great Barrier Reef in Australia, climbed the Great Wall of China, toured the Colosseum in Rome, kayaked the Mediterranean Sea, and even went skydiving over the Carolina coast among others things. I went to East Carolina University, received degrees in Professional Acting and Business Administration, and now help people improve their health and fitness, which honestly makes perfect sense when you connect the dots.
We help high achieving professionals get strong, feel great, and look good naked.
THE STRUGGLE WAS REAL.
A few years ago, I worked at a technology startup and the majority of my time was spent sitting in front of a computer. This is how I spent my days, and I was miserable. One day, while “zoning out” at work, I noticed something. Most of my colleagues were facing the same problem, confined to a desk chair and surrounded by temptation (junk food and sweets) every single day. It was a lifestyle and an environment holding us all back from maximizing our health and performance.
Completely unfulfilled by the work I was doing, I realized that I actually had a lot of knowledge and experience when it came to health and fitness. I studied the best training and nutrition practices and put them to the test myself in my 20’s for fun (FYI I’m 30!), and saw amazing results. I also learned directly from some of the best minds in the entire fitness industry, some of whom work with professional athletes and celebrities. Fitness had already transformed who I was as a person at the time, physically and mentally. I knew more about fitness than I did about the stuff I was doing at work. I also knew that I loved teaching people having been a math tutor in college.
The lightbulb went off, I would quit my job to help people transform their lives through fitness.
AND THEN I TOOK ACTION.
Soon after, I started working at a popular Chicago gym and within nine months, I was one of the top performing personal trainers in the entire company. But I was still being held back. I had an amazing fitness program ready to share with my clients (aka rockstars), but certain policies kept me from doing so. So I bet on myself again, this time parting ways and starting my own personal training business.
Starting a business was hard. I faced challenges and made sacrifices on a daily basis. At one point, I had no clue how I would pay rent or other living expenses, let alone make it in business. Believe me, I know what it feels like to have goals that seem impossible to achieve. I’ve been there and faced the adversity. But when you truly want something bad enough, you’ll do whatever it takes to succeed. Right?
Since then, I’ve been helping people just like you transform their lives through fitness. And through the process, I’ve watched the same people become much better versions of themselves. You could be next!
