When Chris Davies completed his master’s degree in Adult Fitness in 1995 he worked hospital and corporate fitness jobs for five years before leaving fitness to chase the almighty corporate dollar. Chris established Fitness Solutions, Inc. (FSI) in 2000 as a way to venture out and continue to train clients on his own terms and principles. He trained clients part-time as a way to stay up to date with training and maintain his certifications. Meanwhile, Chris worked a full-time corporate job to support his family. Well into a successful pharmaceutical career, and after his father passed away, Chris realized the corporate world was taking a toll on him and he truly was not making a difference in the lives of people. His talent would be better suited for something that was more hands-on that could actually impact people’s lives every day. Instead of selling pharmaceuticals that helped people control disease, Chris realized prevention was a far better approach to health and wellness.
Chris opened FSI at 1101 Walnut St in the fall of 2013. More than five years later, FSI is alive and well with an established member base and clientele’ and boasts a boatload of success stories to boot. Any regrets leaving corporate America? Only that he didn’t leave sooner. Chris says ‘Every day is Friday in my world!’
