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.

    I am devastated that SP is closing forever in August. I joined Spark America today, but I doubt I will remain in it. I don't work and I am disabled. I don't have a cell phone and my HP Notebook doesn't have storage to PDF all my blogs. I've been a member since 2010! I don't know why this change was made, because of COVID or did you sell us out Chris? I was a team leader but I notified my team of the change and I quit today. You have let an awful lot of people down.

    Hey, Chris. Has SparkPeople been hacked? It's hard to believe that such an important message has gone out to the SparkPeople Community that SparkPeople is ending on 8/17/21, without an official press release signed by you? Is the link and posting legitimate?

    Thanks for all of the 12.5 healthy years I've had on SP due largely to this site. I joined SPAmerica but just picked a random city since mine wasn't listed. Best wishes.

    Hi Spark Guy - just wanted to stop by and say good-bye. As a Canadian I understand that SparkPeople becoming SparkAmerica will be closed to me and I am sorry to hear that. I truly will miss the wonderful American friends I have made over the years and the help received. Change is always happening and sometimes the change is very sad. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
