Hello SparkFriends! If you are interested in learning more about the history of SparkPeople and how we can make it free, here is an article that talks about this .

Please note: Since we have millions of members, unfortunately I can't answer SparkMails that ask questions about someone's program or about site features. Please ask these on the message boards and you're likely to get better support than I could give.

I love to see so many people using SparkPeople to reach all types of goals. Each new success story we see motivates us to keep making the site better. Thanks to all of you - and our great team - SparkPeople has turned into a grassroots movement that is spreading around the world!

SparkCheers!

Chris (SparkGuy)
SparkPeople Founder & CEO


Member Since: 11/19/2001

Fitness Minutes: 58,547

My Goals:
1) Working on my new and improved fitness streak! I'm currently at 170 days, headed towards 200 if I can! (remember, this isn't extreme - I only need 10 minutes to keep the streak alive)



2) Make SparkPeople into a company that helps millions of people (I'm the Founder and CEO of the company and am passionate about helping people reach their goals!).


My Program:
I do a well-rounded fitness program that I can fit into a very hectic lifestyle (having a young company and 2 young boys is challenging!) - most of my fitness program can be done at home. This includes cardio, strength (mostly pushups, crunches, lunges, body squats, and other body weight exercises), sprints and jump rope, stretching, and tennis-specific practice.

My wife helps me eat fairly healthy and I help motivate her on fitness - we're a good team!



Personal Information:
I live with my wonderful wife Karina in the San Francisco Bay Area (even though SparkPeople is headquartered in Cincinnati, Ohio and that will always be my hometown).


Other Information:
My wife Karina and I have 2 young and active boys. I love seeing them mimic my exercise. Some of our best quality time is exercising together, they love exercising - especially bouncing on a mini-trampoline.

    Hey SparkGuy~

    Thanks for all you do to help us, and for your kind words to my SparkPage. I have to admit I was all gaga when I saw it, like,"Wow! The CEO WROTE ME PERSONALLY!" :) Cuz I'm weird like that.

    I'm doing what I can on this end to spread the Spark. Here's to many more sparkys jumping on board!

    Hi, your little boy is beautiful! Thank you for doing this. For the first time in years, maybe even more than a decade, I'm excited about losing weight! This is the most awesome thing on the Web, as far as I'm concerned. Thanks for helping me motivate to be consistent!

    I want to thank you for the support that you show to the people who have chosen to be healthier and therefore IMO happier by being in your forum. I am a low income person and never could have afforded the other weight loss programs out there you are truely an insperation to us all
    My heart felt thanks to you

    Thanks for starting this company. I hope you profit handsomely. Are you concerned about WeightWatchers entry into this market (online weight loss support)?


    Thanks,
