After overcoming a PCL tear in high school, rehabbing the injury, and playing football for Florida, Chris knew that he wanted to learn as much as he could and completed an internship in Strength and Conditioning at UF. “I wanted to pursue a career in the Health/Fitness to give others the opportunity to overcome obstacles in their lives and reach their goals.”
Chris Maignan graduated from the University of Florida with a Bachelor's in Applied Physiology and Kinesiology with a specialization in Fitness and Wellness. During his time there, he held a position on the Gator Football team. In addition to being a member of the Just Get Fit TEAM, Chris currently works as a Sun Conference/JUCO Basketball Official and is the Athletic Director and Upper School P.E. Coach at Community Leadership Academy. Chris has also completed the Strength and Conditioning course through the National Federation of High School Sports.
Chris’s 10 year goals include establishing an Athlete developmental program for youth and to become a NBA basketball Official. He is NSCA-CPT certified.
Chris moved to Tallahassee after marrying his wife Faith, a local pharmacist, whom he met while at the University of Florida. Some of his favorite fitness activities include resistance training, cycling, playing sports, and group fitness classes. Some of his biggest personal fitness accomplishments include reaching new personal records in his squat, bench press, deadlift, and hang clean while at the University of Florida, and dropping his body fat percentage from 22% to 10%.
