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 CrossFit

Chris is a CrossFit Games Athlete, Affiliate Owner, Trainer for CrossFit Headquarters teaching seminars both domestic and internationally. He has been fortunate enough to help grow the sport of CrossFit through competing at a variety of CrossFit competitions from as early as 2007.

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 dog Oakley. While not running the affiliate at home or traveling for seminars or comps he puts his fitness to use skiing and trying to keep up with his kids.

The Experience

These posts are my own day to day programming.

You will see some of these workouts designed by myself, and others that were passed on by a friend.

In the past I have had the pleasure of being coached by Ben Bergeron and followed his individualized programming for me. It was very similar to the volume you would see on competitorstraining.com for the Games athlete. At the time there was a much larger emphasis put on heavy metcons and often a different set up in lifting sessions prior to the metcons which focused on improving my “weaknesses”.

Having retired from individual competitions, my goals are different and the training volume and loading will reflect this.
