“It’s not where you are today, but where you want to be tomorrow.”
Exercise has been an integral part of Chris’ life. Not only does it keep him physically fit, it gives him a mental break from a hectic day. With a Master’s degree in Human Movement and Performance he understands how exercise affects the body’s different physiological systems. From this knowledge he is able to tailor specific exercise programs for a wide range of individuals, from the extremely athletic to special population groups. Chris believes you should approach exercise with fun, focus and consistency.
When not spending time with his family, he enjoys running, biking, lifting weights, riding his motorcycle and barbequing with friends.
“I’ve worked with Chris for six years. I appreciate his well calibrated workouts; they keep me physically fit and injury free.”

Growing up in Maine, Kiel McDougall enjoyed running in the woods, reading comic books, and wrestling with friends. Never one to be complacent, he used to run to elementary school to get a workout instead of taking the bus. When he was eight years old, he began chronicling his workouts in a journal. He has traveled around the world, scuba dived in the Caribbean islands, fought forest fires in California, and professionally battled in the MMA cage.
Kiel’s passion for health and fitness led to becoming a certified NASM personal trainer and a certified yoga instructor. He is a purple belt in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. A proponent of whole foods and the benefits of eastern medicine, his approach to health is a holistic one: he believes that the mind, body, and soul must all be balanced in order to reach optimum health and longevity. A voracious reader, he majored in English and minored in Psychology in college, graduating summa cum laude from the University of Maine.

Keegan Thorpe NASM CPT CES
My name is Keegan Thorpe. I’m a Personal Trainer/Corrective Exercise Specialist certified with the National Association of Sports Medicine.
I’ve been involved in sports my whole life, however I began training, and
instructing fitness classes about six years ago. I was initially drawn to this field
while rehabbing a occupational injury from working in construction. I gradually shifted from my regular job to fitness because it’s just a lot more fun, and rewarding.
I get to relive that experience thru others, and it never seems like work.
All types of fitness interest me, but I focus on Corrective Exercise, and Small
Group Training the most. That’s where I feel like I have the biggest impact. I look forward to helping you be the best version of yourself!
