Growing up, Chad was always active playing sports, but struggled with being overweight and poor eating habits. When Chad was in his early 20's and over 100 lbs. above a healthy weight for his height, he decided to make a change. Joining a gym and tracking his calorie input versus output, Chad fell in love with the process of getting healthy, strong, and finally feeling good about his body. Chad loved the process so much that he decided to shift his career focus from Computer Networking and Security to Personal Training and Wellness Coaching. Now in his early 30's, Chad is a Master Personal Trainer and Performance Enhancement Specialist, certified by the National Academy of Sports Medicine. He also is a CrossFit Level 1 Trainer.
In October 2019, after 5 years of working in a gym environment, Chad decided to branch out and started Kraus Fit, his own Personal Training and Virtual Fitness business. Being a huge dog lover, Chad also works at Austin Dogtown as the Overnight Manager, where Kraus Fit Studio is also located!
Chad understands that making a lifestyle change and adopting new fitness routines can be difficult, so he wants you to know he's with you to support you in-person and online!
