Chris Bracken was born and raised in Elizabethtown, Ky. He has been into sports since an early age, playing baseball and football in high school. Afterwards he became interested in bodybuilding and just trying to stay in the best shape possible.
After watching the Crossfit Games and talking to some friends that were doing CrossFit, he decided to give it a try, and after a few workouts became hooked. Now with a couple years’ experience and a few competitions under his belt he is excited to coach/ teach others in this great sport! Seeing the results first hand and other testimonials reassures him that this is one of the best ways to get in shape and to be a part of a great community at the same time.
