WHAT PEOPLE SAY
Athletic Trainer NBA & MLS
"As an athletic trainer, having a coach that I can trust and whom can consistently select appropriate exercises at the right intensity during both the rehab process and high-level performance training is hard to come by. Cris understands movement, rehabilitation interventions, and can individualize assessments and performance-based programs for both the advanced elite client and the beginner trainee. I fully recommend his strength and conditioning expertise."
U.S. Special Operations Command
"I’m running 15 minutes on a treadmill and running sprints on a field — things I never thought I’d be doing a year out from my injuries. Coach Rodriguez has changed my life for the better.”
Professional Soccer Player
"During my time within the Los Angeles Galaxy, Cris helped me maintain a high level of fitness, stay healthy, and made a difference in my acceleration and sprint capacity. His expertise and approach were valued throughout our entire lockerroom."
" I've used Cris's programming for over three years with overwhelmingly positive results. Starting from a novice fitness proficiency level, I was able to quickly develop strength, endurance, and mobility without injury. The movements are grouped in a logical and complimentary manner, not overly complex, and scalable to promote individual goals. I cycled through his functional fitness and Olympic
lifting programs depending on the evolving demands of my job. I found the transition between styles to be seamless, and the previous
training to be supportive of follow-on performance. I trust Cris's expertise in the field of human performance based on the science and experience he incorporates into each lesson."
"Cris’s ability to accurately evaluate my strengths and weaknesses from both a mobility and physical preparation perspective were spot on. Not only have his progressive exercise selections and corrective strategies made a significant difference in my overall performance but the technique adjustments he made for my Snatch, Clean and Jerk had me quickly PR in both movements. In preparation for this years games I will certainly utilize his expertise."
