My name is Kris Swanson, I am a personal trainer at Gold’s Gym Richland, WA. I am certified through the National Academy of Sports Medicine. I have lived in the Tri-Cities my entire life and really enjoy this area. Growing up I was a quiet and self conscious kid. I found my voice and self confidence through strength training and other types of exercise. My hobbies include tennis, yoga, snowboarding, camping or just any activity you can do outdoors.
In school I pursed a degree in nutrition and I continue to study nutrition outside of school. I believe that nutrition is the basis of health. I plan on getting a certification in sports nutrition so I can highlight what I love and excel my training programs. I decided to become a personal trainer because the two go hand in hand. Being active and living a healthy lifestyle can free you up to endless possibilities. My training philosophy is mindfulness. I believe the fastest way to success isn’t to just move weight or to just go through the motions but to truly be mindful of what muscles should be working.
I am open to training anyone and everyone that is looking to better themselves. With my experience in the gym I am confident I can bring you closer to your goals, whatever they may be. I think being easygoing and having fun in the gym can pave the way to long term commitment and success. If you have any questions I would be happy to help.
