METHODS ARE MANY,
PRINCIPLES ARE FEW.

METHODS OFTEN CHANGE.
PRINCIPLES RARELY DO.

Ascend Perform utilizes the most up-to-date science to ground our principles and we have spent over two decades refining and adapting our methodology. This leverages the best equipment and exercise tools to produce rapid results that are readily identifiable through the collection of real time data.

Additionally, all clients are provided with nutritional/lifestyle guidance and all supplements we use are from a line that typically only caters to health care practitioners.

DETAILED GUIDANCE ON WORKOUT NUTRITION AND SUPPLEMENTS

When it comes to results, nothing matters more than what you eat. We make sure to help you as much as possible albeit moving into your home and cooking for you. We use an app created by Designs For Health to put you on a diet that is right for you. With over 16 plans to get you started (Paleo, Keto, Vegan, Clean eating, along with a health-related focus), we pick the one that makes the most sense for you and then help you implement it. We continually adjust the plan until it’s perfect for you.

The diet is going great! I have never enjoyed a paleo diet before but I love that the app has a shopping list, simple recipes, and tells you exactly what to eat. I feel amazing.

MEET CHRIS GRAYSON

21 years of experience and research have been distilled down into my principles and methods.

Since leaving the Marine Corps in 1999 I’ve been involved in the fitness industry. I’ve had countless certifications throughout the years and continue to invest in education to stay up to date on the latest science and research to continually hone my craft. I’ve worked with and studied under some of the brightest and most successful coaches in the industry. I believe the results that I get with clients and what they’ve said about me directly reflects this, and I encourage you to see what they have said.

We discuss and go over the results and all necessary aspects via video conference, email, and/or text for constant support. Training and nutrition are constantly monitored and tweaked as needed.
