Chris Rothfelder

Elevate Owner

Hi there, I’m Chris Rothfelder, Owner and co-founder at Elevate Training, Health and Wellness.

Fitness, sports and helping people are my passion. To be able to combine those into a job I love is a dream come true, but it took many unique life experiences to help me choose this path. I was diagnosed with Ankylosing Spondylitis a potentially debilitating disease, at the age of 18. It was a wake up call for me to make fitness a priority and put my health first. It was then I started focusing on weight lifting to prevent pain and stay mobile. After spending 12 years working in the Film and Television industry, I realized my fitness had started to decline, due to the rigorous schedule. I made a decision then, that I wanted to make physical activity a part of my daily life. It was the best decision I ever made. Being a trainer is a dynamic role that allows me to connect with people, make an impact and lead by example. Being a healthy role model for my children is so important to me, and I love a job that lets me talk the talk and walk the walk.

What elevates me?

Working with people to help improve their lives and achieve their goals is the best feeling in the world. When a client leaves my session with a smile on their face and they thank me, I know I am doing my job right.

My Philosophy

In order to truly be happy in life, you must be first be happy with yourself.
