What’s up!? I’m Chase.
I’m the guy who started Incremental Gains, a personal training and fitness coaching company dedicated to helping high achievers just like you transform their lives through fitness.
Why the name Incremental Gains? Because that’s how amazing health and fitness results are actually achieved in real life, incrementally.
I know your time is valuable and I promise not to waste it.
So here’s a quick snapshot of who I am, what I’m all about, and why you should listen to me.
“Believe me, I know what it feels like to have goals that seem impossible to achieve. I’ve been there and have faced the adversity.”
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.
It makes perfect sense when you connect the dots.
I worked at a technology start-up 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. Everyone around me was facing the same problem, confined to a desk chair and surrounded by temptation (junk food, fast food, sweets, etc.) every single day. It was a lifestyle and an environment holding everyone back from maximizing their 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, and saw amazing results. I also learned directly from some of the best minds and coaches 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 and I quit my job soon after.
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 amazing fitness tools and strategies 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, Incremental Gains, LLC.
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 have 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 look, feel, and perform the way they want to. It’s fun and extremely gratifying work.
