About

Chris graduated in 1999 with his Master of Science in Physical Therapy from the MGH-Institute of Health Professions in Boston, MA, and developed into one of that area’s top orthopedic therapists. He transitioned to a Doctorate in PT in 2004 and became a Board Certified Orthopedic Clinical Specialist prior to relocating here in Portland in 2009. Across his career he has helped rehabilitate athletes of all ages and abilities – novice through Olympian – across a range of sports, including triathlon, cycling, rowing, swimming, volleyball, track and field, and Nordic skiing. After 22 years of racing triathlons (including 18 Ironmen with a PR of 9:10 and 9 qualifications for the Hawaii Ironman World Championships), Chris has changed his focus toward cyclocross, all while battling Multiple Sclerosis.

While each aspect of setting SMART goals matters, what truly distinguishes the successful endeavors from the unsuccessful is whether or not the goals matter to the person setting them. When a goal is autonomous there is a greater willingness to push toward success, even in the face of adversity.
Goals fall within two basic categories — outcome goals and process goals. One rarely works without the other — what you want (your outcome goal) depends on you focusing on all the things you will need to do to achieve it (your process goals) and success does not lie solely in reaching your outcome goal.
