Nutrition

You are what you eat.

80% of what you put into your body affects how you feel on the inside and how you look on the outside.  It’s the foundation of performance, growth, and recovery.  Whether you are looking to lose weight or win an Ironman, what you feed your body affects results and is the building block of any healthy lifestyle.  The majority of us eat far too much sugar for no reason and get too little sleep each night.  It’s time to take control of your body and start eating real food.  You will thank me later.

How it all began.

CrossCycle® Fitness was born.

Meet me, Chris Gagnon, the brain child behind CrossCycle® Fitness. Growing up in Maine as a competitive hockey player, I developed a love for fitness and the outdoors at a young age.  Creativeness and design were always passions of mine,  leading me to study graphic design at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston.  Things changed throughout college as I got into cross country mountain bike racing despite growing up with severe exercise induced asthma.  I spent years with inhalers, medications, and allergy shots until I decided to help myself through means of diet and exercise.  Perhaps it was my battle with asthma which led me to competitive cycling, however it has been a long road since my first mountain bike race to present day successes.   With my asthma now kicked to the curb, I definitely credit mountain bike racing as the gateway to my fitness world and wouldn’t have it any other way.   I went on to co-create a successful grassroots mountain bike team (MTBMIND) with nearly 50 members, and still currently compete a professional endurance cyclist — completing over two dozen solo 24-hour mountain bike races, including 5 World Solo 24-hour Championships.   

Over the past 15 years, I quickly put my creative & entrepreneurial skills to work, starting an in-home personal training business around the Boston area — catering to anyone and anyone looking to move and explore a lifestyle of activity.   Having also taught cycling classes for over 10 years, I combined my training & coaching knowledge into the form of a group fitness class that combines strength training and outdoor cycling segments .  The end result was later pitched in 2009 as a group exercise class called CrossCycle® to the highly sought after Equinox Fitness Club on Franklin Street in Boston, MA.   Throw in a trademark and 8 years of growth, and you now have the  cycling class all of Boston is talking about.  I strive to  combine  many years of functional training knowledge with professional cycling experience to challenge clients both mentally and physically, teaching to music that motivates, and inspiring everyone to achieve greatness on and off the bike.
