Hello SparkFriends! If you are interested in learning more about the history of SparkPeople and how we can make it free, here is an article that talks about this .

Please note: Since we have millions of members, unfortunately I can't answer SparkMails that ask questions about someone's program or about site features. Please ask these on the message boards and you're likely to get better support than I could give.

I love to see so many people using SparkPeople to reach all types of goals. Each new success story we see motivates us to keep making the site better. Thanks to all of you - and our great team - SparkPeople has turned into a grassroots movement that is spreading around the world!

SparkCheers!

Chris (SparkGuy)
SparkPeople Founder & CEO


Member Since: 11/19/2001

Fitness Minutes: 58,707

My Goals:
1) Working on my new and improved fitness streak! I'm currently at 170 days, headed towards 200 if I can! (remember, this isn't extreme - I only need 10 minutes to keep the streak alive)



2) Make SparkPeople into a company that helps millions of people (I'm the Founder and CEO of the company and am passionate about helping people reach their goals!).


My Program:
I do a well-rounded fitness program that I can fit into a very hectic lifestyle (having a young company and 2 young boys is challenging!) - most of my fitness program can be done at home. This includes cardio, strength (mostly pushups, crunches, lunges, body squats, and other body weight exercises), sprints and jump rope, stretching, and tennis-specific practice.

My wife helps me eat fairly healthy and I help motivate her on fitness - we're a good team!



Personal Information:
I live with my wonderful wife Karina in the San Francisco Bay Area (even though SparkPeople is headquartered in Cincinnati, Ohio and that will always be my hometown).


Other Information:
My wife Karina and I have 2 young and active boys. I love seeing them mimic my exercise. Some of our best quality time is exercising together, they love exercising - especially bouncing on a mini-trampoline.

    Hi Spark Guy & team...
    As we transition to Spark 360 over the next few months would like to ask that the new site offers some things I love about sparkpeople.
    1. Way to track food including calories, carbs, fat, protein & vitamins.
    2. Way to form support groups & message with people.
    3. Ability to put in kind of exercise that will track calories burned.
    4. Personal Spark pages & place to share about self & learn about others on spark & their journey.
    I find it important to let the spark team leaders know that one of the most important aspects of sparkpeoples success for me is the personal support that is available through building relationships. I am currently not seeing that on Spark360 & hoping that will be coming in the future as you build the site. Thanks for all you do for us to help us get healthy.

    Would you please write an updated blog, about you & how you are doing through this transition? I KNOW you have heard from us! emoticon emoticon I will be here till Aug. 17, then not sure what I will do, still working on it. Been here for 3,380 days EVERYDAY! I wish I could afford to buy SP community feed from you. But that is impossible for me. emoticon the best book EVER written on the subject of health! emoticon

    It is very sad to see you abandon all the SP members by closing this site. I really wish you had offered a membership fee to everyone to keep the site open. Your SparkAmerica site is too cold and impersonal so you will really need good luck with it. My company offers a much more comprehensive health and wellness site than SparkAmerica and it is through our company health insurance so good luck competing with those sites. The challenges between cities to win prizes is so silly it is laughable. But again, good luck with all of it, I think you will need it. emoticon
