Allow Me to Reintroduce Myself

Now retired from the sport as a legend. Get to know the real Speal.


Chris Spealler

has a passion for teaching and coaching.

Chris was an individual competitor in 7 CrossFit Games, is an Affiliate Owner, and trainer for CrossFit Headquarters teaching a variety of seminars both domestic and internationally.

He has been fortunate enough to help grow the sport of CrossFit through competing and teaching at a variety of competitions and seminars from as early as 2007, and is currently sharing his knowledge and experience through programming for and developing Icon Athlete.

With the multiple roles he plays in the community he is a true ambassador for CrossFit. He lives in Park City, Utah with his wife, 2 kids, and their dogs Oakley and Avalanche.

While not running the affiliate at home or traveling for seminars and coaching athletes he puts his fitness to use skiing, mountain biking, and trying to keep up with his kids.

The Experience

The goal of The Experience is to provide you with helpful tips for you training and coaching.

Everything from the #weeklygeek videos, to webinars, or helpful articles can be found here. Even some of my fun experiences outside of the gym where fitness is applied.

The journey as both an athlete and coach is always continuing. We can choose to stay within our comfort zones or learn to apply new ways of thinking, moving, and approaching our workouts that may benefit us in the long run.

I encourage you to not think of things as “right” or “wrong”. Instead, what value can we find in each approach and how can we help ourselves and others with even a small piece of what we have learned.
