Chris Ng’s Inspiring Journey from Engineer to Happy, Healthy Human

Growing up in El Monte, California, Chris had a pretty normal childhood, filled with a love for animals and a knack for engineering. His journey into the world of fitness began in 2019, influenced by social media trends that nudged him to join a local gym. Like many of us, he found it hard to stay focused during the pandemic shutdowns, but a recommendation from a trainer led him to CrossFit at Reason Gym. And boy, was it a game-changer!

Chris’s initial motivation was to look a certain way, but he soon realized that CrossFit offered much more than physical transformation. The supportive community and personalized training at Reason Gym were unlike anything he had experienced before. It wasn’t just about lifting weights or running miles; it was about being part of a community that cheered him on and helped him grow.

As Chris dove deeper into CrossFit, his mindset began to shift. He moved away from obsessing over his physical appearance to focusing on improving as an athlete and a community member. Food, which he once saw as something to be avoided, became fuel for his goals. The encouragement from the Reason family helped him overcome feelings of self-consciousness and fear of judgment. He built deeper connections and developed a more positive outlook on life.

Reflecting on his journey, Chris shared how he learned to adapt to both fitness and life’s challenges. Growing up, he struggled with negative thoughts that didn’t serve him well. But through CrossFit, he discovered the importance of finding what truly motivates him and what doesn’t. His fitness community played a crucial role in this transformation, providing a tight-knit group where he felt supported during tough times. Chris now sees challenges as opportunities to grow and is more focused on his goals than ever before.

Chris’s story doesn’t end with personal transformation. He is immensely grateful to the Reason community and coaches who have inspired him to strive for self-improvement. They’ve given him newfound confidence and accountability. While he’s still working on building his confidence, Chris acknowledges the significant progress he’s made since joining the gym.

In his own words, Chris proudly identifies himself as a Reason athlete. His journey from an electrical engineer with a casual interest in fitness to a happier, healthier human is truly inspiring. It shows that with the right support, mindset, and community, anyone can overcome their challenges and achieve their goals.

So, if you’re feeling stuck or unmotivated, remember Chris Ng’s story. Find your community, embrace the journey, and watch yourself transform in ways you never imagined.
