Chris Gosler

Head Coach


I began a career as a personal training immediately upon earning my B.S. in Kinesiology from the University of Massachusetts Amherst.  Being a life long lover of both sport and fitness, I immediately fell in love when I found CrossFit.  I have gone through many certifications in the fitness industry in addition to having 17+ years of experience helping clients, of all ages and abilities, learn real world fitness.

Fitness has helped push me to excel in life outside of the gym while becoming a better father, husband, co-worker and friend.   I am extremely thankful to be able to do what I love each day.   Monday is still my favorite day of the week and I get excited every day to wake up at 4am and come to work.  I wouldn’t trade anything for the camaraderie and friendships I have made throughout my life in both fitness and sport and I am honored to be able to give back on a daily basis to the program that has given so much to me.

I have actively managed CrossFit Southie since our opening in 2010.  We have grown to occupy 15,000 Square feet of space with a membership that has reached as high as 550 members, with upwards of 14 classes a day.  Along the way I have mentored and grown 30+ coaches and have shaped the fitness of more lives than I am able to count.  I am excited to contribute to the STRIVE community and look forward bringing my skill set to the South Shore!
