"WHEN I STARTED WORKING WITH CHRIS, I HAD WEAK JOINTS, KNEE INJURY AND COULD NOT CATCH MY BREATH.
I WAS STRESSED OUT AND HAD HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE. NOW AT 50, I AM FIT TO HIKE AND SKI MOUNTAINS, JOG THE BEACHES, AND PLAY TENNIS ON A LEAGUE.
CHRIS'S POSITIVE ATTITUDE AND GREAT TRAINING HELPED ME TO HAVE A HEALTHY AND HAPPY LIFE. I WOULD CALL CHRIS TODAY."

Thanks again for the Tai Chi Breathing experience with Josh and Jack.
I was surprised to hear them say they especially enjoyed the floor work. Breathing, focusing, positive affirmations.
I wasn’t sure this was going to be all that acceptable but it was. The standing movements -they also said they experienced - I would explain
this as some kind of difficulty - Not as likable as the floor work. However, I think with athletes I’ve had experience with - they tend to have difficulties with these arts of Yoga-Tai Chi-Qi gong.
Athletes push-push-push/hard-hard-hard to WIN! It’s what they train to do. Nothing wrong with this but they
loose sight of hard vs soft in mind/body/spirit. They are just beginning a new journey perhaps the floor work gave them time to introspect on many things going on in their lives.
You have exceptional insight.
I just want you to know it is a delight to know and work with you.
I’ve been around some exceptional masters and I think you are on your way to mastering whatever it is
that you would want to do.
In gratitude and appreciation.
Reaching physical fitness goals can be challenging at any age and stage of fitness. Finding a trainer who truly understands these challenges and will be there to encourage, motivate and support you to keep striving to reach your goals while making the entire experience enjoyable is crucial. Chris Capistran is both an outstanding fitness trainer and a caring and compassionate person who makes sure all of your goals are met. He truly puts his clients' needs first.
Chris has a far reaching understanding of the physiological functioning of the body and is able to custom design a fitness routine personally to your goals as well as your body, including any limitations from past or current injuries or simple discomforts. His initial workout starts with an assessment that will amaze you at what he can tell you about pain or issues you may be experiencing just from observing your overall posture and body positioning as he guides you through simple exercises. Once he has an idea of your base starting point and what your goals are, he is very dedicated to constructing a workout regimen and fitness routines from which you will feel and experience results. His holistic approach to physical fitness makes the hard work seem more like fun. In addition, his professional and kind disposition and overall nature make the workouts something you look forward to instead of dreading in any way!
I highly recommend Chris and Enlightened Fitness. Both my kids and I have had positive results from our workouts with Chris, and his willingness to meet you at your home, work place, gym or even a park or beach make the workouts dynamic, interesting and fun while being challenging and goal oriented to your fitness needs. Chris is really a master trainer who successfully works with clients of all ages ranging from children to elderly and adapts each training session according to the needs and goals of his clients.
Chris is an outstanding physical trainer and a person of true integrity. I was chronically fatigued, depressed and overweight. As a birthday gift, my wonderful brother gave me a package of 5 sessions (which includes an initial session for free--for a total of 6 sessions). I spread these out over a 3 month period seeing Chris every other week. He definitely got me "over the hump" of doldrums I was in! I now feel stronger, lighter (almost 10 lbs. lost) and have more energy. From the first session, it was obvious that Chris is passionate about what he does and truly cares about people. He always went over time with my sessions--caring more about my understanding and success than he did about the clock. He introduced me to many new and interesting exercises. I also have much more awareness of my body posture, alignment, and the fact that even minor adjustments throughout the day can make a huge difference in how you feel. I often did and continue to do my "scap-wrap and zip-up" body adjustments everytime I hit a stoplight on the way to and from work. I highly recommend Chris for anyone who is looking to "strengthen" themselves and add "vitality" to their lives!
Chris is great! He pays attention to your issues & addresses them. Careful to prevent injury, he's well educated in rehab exercise. He helped me put together an exercise routine to address stiffness, pain & restricted range of motion problems that has helped a lot! (I just turned 65.) Easy to work with & a sense of humor, he still keeps you on track through the grunt work I try to avoid! ;) I definitely recommend you check him out for your body building, maintenance or rehab needs... Thanks Chris, you're the best!
Chris is a very knowledgeable and professional personal trainer. He knows exactly what I need to do to improve my performance for my golf tournaments. The way he trains is not just about building muscles, he also helps me maintain mental clarity to replicate when I'm under a lot of pressure to perform flawlessly.
I love his ability for on spot flexibility when it comes to what portion of my body I want the session to primarily focus on. I have definitely become a better athlete physically, spiritually, and emotionally all thanks to Chris. Chris always had my best interest at heart and tailors each workout for such.
I started working out with Chris a little over 5 years ago, after the second of two complete hip replacements. He's helped me in so many ways--from restoring flexibility and balance to improving stamina and core strength. Skilled in physical exercise and therapeutic movement, Chris also understands the psychological aspect of physical renewal. It never fails--even if I start out tired or sore, I always feel energized after a workout with Chris, both physically and emotionally. The picture of health and fitness himself, Chris is an all-around great guy--caring, gentle, patient, cheerful, enthusiastic, knowledgeable, and focused.
