Meet the Personal Trainer: Chris Hintz

JCC Los Gatos Personal Trainer, Chris Hintz is a Certified Personal Trainer (CPT ACE), Movement Specialist (CES NASM), Fitness Nutrition and Sports Nutrition Coach (ISSA and ACE). Currently, he is also completing a strength coach certification (CSCS NSCA). 

Chris has been serving the South Bay community for over 16 years, helping young athletes get ready for their sports seasons and reduce injury potential during the season. He helps Silicon Valley professionals improve their posture, build muscle, and increase endurance.  Chris also works with seniors to improve their mobility, endurance, and strength so they can better enjoy their golden retirement years.

As a lifelong active person, he wasn’t always the pinnacle of health he felt should coincide with an active lifestyle. Suffering from back, knee, and shoulder injuries as well as high blood pressure, he knew his clients and his body deserved better. So, he challenged himself to make positive changes!

Starting with nutrition, he changed his diet from mostly processed foods to healthier options, including low sugar foods, complex carbohydrates, and healthy proteins. Using knowledge he gained through his certifications in fitness and sports nutrition, he improved his blood pressure and reached a healthy weight. 

Later in life, he realized that having tight hips, ankles, and shoulders were the root of his injuries and unless he addressed these injuries, they would continue. He educated himself by completing three certifications in corrective science, with CES-NASM being the most helpful. Using his well-rounded education, he applied it to his mobility issues and overcame his injuries. He continues to use this knowledge to help his clients to keep doing what they want to do while they remain injury-free. 

Chris is currently accepting new clients. He looks forward to helping APJCC members to achieve their health and fitness goals.  If you are interested in training with Chris, please contact to get set up with an appointment.
