Soccer players are known to "carry the ball", but it was a soccer ball that carried Chris Harper to the Wilmington area. A military brat, Chris grew up living all over the world: from the Middle East to the Far East to Europe to the United States. But an offer to play soccer for UNC-W ('78-'82) brought him to the Wilmington area for good.
An Exercise Science major, Chris loved everything about Wilmington. After graduation from college, he briefly went pro as a soccer player for the NASL. In the late '80s, he returned to Wilmington and was one of the first to open a personal training studio in this area. He also coached soccer for New Hanover High School and Cape Fear Academy.
After a brief hiatus from personal training, Chris realized he missed teaching people how to achieve optimal fitness. He is delighted to join Fitness Together. In addition to his passion for sports and fitness, Chris loves spending time with his "girls": his wife and his 24-year-old and 5-year-old daughters. Chris enjoys spending time at the beach and traveling.
