​Chris Popiela

Coach
5 Years Experience

I always preach to put yourself in a good position, in life, health and any CrossFit movement.

I joined CrossFit in 2010. My older brother convinced me that it was the next big thing. I joined a local box where I lived at the time and was nervous as hell. It’s funny that you still see the same thing today, so I love to relate to new members when they first join our community.

When I moved to Charlotte, my good college buddy introduced me to Steve Pinkerton. I always joke that I owe Steve my first born child as I found the woman of my dreams, my NASCAR career, and second job coaching all at CFV.

I was a member at CFV for about 2 years, when Steve asked me to pick up coaching. I grabbed my L1 Cert and have loved coaching ever since. Not only because I enjoy watching members enter a world of pain, but helping members achieve their goals is an amazing experience that I look forward to every day.

I always preach to put yourself in a good position, in life, health and any CrossFit movement. That’s the motto I live by so don’t get upset if I fix your clean position!
