Have you ever considered that you have a greater say in who you are and what you can accomplish than most people are willing to admit? We all make a thousand decisions a day that can define who we are if we let them, and manifesting our success is a lot more achievable than we think. Everything is earned, and hard work solves every problem. These are the tenets of philosophy that shape Chris Cloyd's definition of well-being, and the pursuit of that ideal.
As Chris will tell you, well-being is a lifestyle - a delicate combination of fitness, metal and emotional sanity, a pursuit of something bigger than ourselves, and a contribution to the greater good. This isn't a destination, but something that we LIVE and perpetuate.
Working as a fitness professional since 2006, Chris has built a brand working with athletes of all backgrounds - from Olympians to aspiring youth. He currently manages US Olympic Gold Medalist Julia Mancuso's Performance Training Center in Truckee, CA and works as a trainer and coach for over 2 dozen professional and nationally-competitive athletes, including world-class skiers, snowboarders, cyclists, and triathletes.
Chris doesn't just preach his doctrines - he also pursues these ideals himself. As an amateur athlete, Chris stays actively competitive in the running, cycling, and triathlon communities. This past season Chris won a number of local and regional bike races, won the Lake Tahoe International Triathlon, Auburn International Triathlon, June Lake International Triathlon, and qualified for the US National Championship Triathlon (although he was unable to compete).
Of course, as a full-time resident of the Lake Tahoe community, Chris is hopelessly addicted to snowboarding and backcountry touring, and spends as much time as possible out in our great Sierra wilderness in the winter months.
