CHASE PROGRESS.

NOT PERFECTION.

Coach Chris Grayson

After leaving the Marine Corps in 1999 I got my first certification and started training people for a living. Since that time I’ve continued to learn from some of the smartest people in the industry while getting some of the best certifications out there and attending countless seminars. I’m constantly improving my training facility and myself in an effort to be the best coach possible with the best private training facility to implement what I learn.

METHODS ARE MANY,
PRINCIPLES ARE FEW.

METHODS OFTEN CHANGE.
PRINCIPLES RARELY DO.

To ascend is to become better. It’s not about seeking the impossibility of perfection, but rather about chasing progress and understanding that if perfection is a destination that one can never arrive at, progress is a journey one can always strive to be on.

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.

Training strength and conditioning with Chris Grayson really opened my eyes to a lot of things. His way of training is extreme but very effective. I think he has a very good approach to take the maximum out of the athlete.
