Biography

Chirag here, also known as Chi (“Chee”). I’m a CrossFit L1 and CrossFit Weightlifting Trainer, originally from Michigan. I moved to NYC nearly 12 years ago to work in the Corporate sector. I have since met my now wife Simone, born and raised New Yorker, and we recently welcomed our beautiful baby daughter, Kaira, into this world. 

I have given my own time, energy and money to purchase Metropolis. I was a member for 4 years and lost 40lbs before seeking the opportunity to partner, and now fully own as of over a year ago. I am working towards sustaining a community that is empowered through Fitness. I’ve been battling health & wellness for as long as I can remember (going through 40lb +/- weight cycles not once, twice, but three times). I finally made a choice that was right for me — quit the corporate desk and put my savings towards an entrepreneurial aspiration of helping others live their best lives. I’ve come to understand that this battle with overall health is mental and emotional, as much as it is physical.

Every day we are challenged to question our choices by asking ourselves: are we happy and healthy? And will this choice make me look and feel better?

Fitness transformation, or any type of transformation for that matter (whether in our career or personal life), requires a relentless effort towards greater self-awareness. Transformation is a lifelong journey that will always continue to challenge the emotional, mental, and physical state of mind. To overcome these challenges we are required to build willpower, strength, and confidence. The on-going result translates to all aspects of life and empowers us to take on each day and win both professionally and personally.

Thank you for considering joining me on this venture as I aspire to support others in adopting this mindset and way of being in their own personal spiritual journeys. 

With Gratitude
