Check out just a few of the testimonials and feedback from previous Bridging the Wellness Gap® participants.

Yet, please understand that the greater benefit derived from BTWG relates to an overall sense of health, fitness and well-being.

“When I started this program, I was not even sure what was realistic to expect, I just knew that I was dying a slow death and it was not fair to my wife and my two wonderful kids. I thought if I could lose 15 or 20 pounds during The Project it would be a great start towards my goal and get me in the right direction. Weight loss was definitely my main goal when I started and, losing 46 pounds, I would say I far exceeded my expectations on weight loss! So, with all that being said, the health and wellness benefits I received were far greater than anything I could ever have dreamed. I dropped my Cholesterol 28 points from 204 to 176. I lowered my resting heart rate from 75 BPM to 52 BPM. No question you have added years on to my life!” –
Matt, BTWG Graduate who went on to lose over 50 pounds and completely transform his life!
“It is amazing to me how profound and far-reaching the lessons of this program affect my life. I see everything through new eyes!”
“Surrounding yourself with people who truly desire to be healthy is the most powerful tool in our battle for wellness! As Helen Keller put it, ‘Alone we can do so little, together we can do so much.’ Thank you Chris ,and my fellow BTWG Recruits, and of course my wife, friends, and family who have supported my change!”
“Chris, I just wanted to thank you for your extra time these past few weeks! I really respect you and your advice and appreciate your encouragement! This is a tough thing for me and your insights and advice have really helped me focus on what I need (and want) to do. ”
I wasn’t sure what to expect, and didn’t know if it would actually help me but my dear friend said “just try it, you’ll find yourself again”. So I did. I applied and went through the program with eyes wide open. I listened to concepts that made complete sense, and started to treat myself as someone who is important. BTWG changed my life. It not only gave me life skills and tools that I had been missing all of these years, but it allowed me to holistically transform from the inside out. I feel like a new person with a new lease on life!
I’m now 45 and in better health than I was throughout my 30s and 40s. My outlook is so much different about the future and what kind of life I can have for myself along with setting a great example for my kids. I can’t thank Chris and the BTWG program enough. Plus a huge bonus is the wonderful lifelong friendships I’ve made with those who are on the BTWG journey with me!
“Your BTWG program was exactly what I needed to take a big step in my journey to a healthier and happier life.”
“I always seemed to focus on losing weight which has been a life long battle for me but I knew it was much more than just weight loss that I needed. I knew I needed to do something for my entire well-being… You have given me a new perspective on how to approach things… It is challenging and very emotional for me but I know it is within my power to make the needed changes in my life!”
I have lost about 8 pounds since we started this adventure just two weeks ago. It is amazing and very encouraging. I haven’t felt this excited by the possibility of losing weight in a very long time. Thanks for the words of encouragement.”
“BTWG is awesome! I think you could also make millions off of this thing. It’s not a fad, it isn’t Tae-bo, or a diet… I’m so glad you created this and I think you are an amazing person. Thank you for offering all that you have. I’m so glad our paths have crossed!
“I can’t believe the difference I feel in body, mind and spirit after only three weeks! My energy level and mood has been uplifted and I sense that my spirit is being affected by mediation although I can not really explain how…..maybe by week 12 I will be able to verbalize that!”
“I have to admit that I am beginning to feel hungry when it is time to eat, it is actually a pretty good feeling that I am eating because I am hungry and not because I am supposed to! As my body changes and I feel stronger I am more comfortable in pushing myself beyond my current capabilities.”
“I cannot be more excited about my progress thus far. First of all, I want to say that you have really inspired me. After our meeting today, I now know why. You have total unconditional love for your participants… I know, it takes a lot of courage to talk about spirituality and I really respect you for doing it. So many people want to make it about eating this or that, or this combination, etc…. but you have helped us to realize it is so much more. It is about attachments and not being afraid of giving them up… You truly, unconditionally love the people around you and help us get real with what needs to change. I feel that I am a much better person now, since knowing you. Talk about a high vibration! All that I can say is thank you….thank you…thank you. I am blessed to have met you.”
“Chris, thank you so much for introducing me into this. I feel like I get so much bang from these workouts. ”
“Getting back in the exercise habit was made easier during the BTWG program due to the shorter workout times. I used to feel that if I couldn’t work out for an hour I shouldn’t even bother… The workouts fit very well into my extremely busy lifestyle.”
“All of this progress would have been impossible without your gentle coaching and advice… I appreciate your coaching style because it is based on building trust rather than drill-sergeant barking… The best leaders are those who lead by example, as you do, and inspire people to take chances rather than incite behavior by threats and fear.”
“Thank you, as always, for your kind and patient encouragement. I bow to you.”
“After one month I feel great. My Chiropractor says I feel much more relaxed. I feel more emotionally relaxed, my Energy is good, It is easier to fall asleep. I have lost 20 pounds and 3.5% on Body Fat. Went from a 52 Suit to a 48. Wife says I look more toned. Moved two notches in on my belt and my ‘Dunlap’ has shrunk significantly.”
“My cloths are looser! It is progress to me that I am working out 6 days a week and don’t even dread it, this has definitely given me a boost of confidence that I really need to stick with me, I am more mindful of everything I put in my mouth and do with/to my body.”
“My blood pressure has improved by 18% in the last two months!”
“I think the most important accomplishment I feel to date is that my perceptions about my need for food have shifted. I am not missing the desserts or sweet stuff at all. It feels good to be in control of what I am eating.”
“I definitely have more energy and just feel overall ‘perkier’. I feel like my digestion has improved… I rarely feel bloated or have a stomach ache anymore. I’ve lost weight and toned up a lot. I definitely think my aerobic fitness and strength have improved. Overall BTWG is just a small affirmation that we’re always stronger than we think we are. If you are really determined to make changes in your life, you probably can.”
“My Cholesterol is down to 10 points! 186 from 195.”
“My body has definitely changed. I have greater muscle tone and I have lost fat in places that I find very noticeable. I walk and carry myself with more confidence as I find myself becoming an athlete once again…”
“People at work are telling me I look ‘hot’ and my legs are ‘sexy’ and other great comments. I can see a difference in my shoulders—they are not as round/padded as they used to be—I have always wanted more square shoulders, and now I’m getting them! I can see a waistline forming so I don’t look like I have no waist. My pants are loose—soon to be too big—and I look better in my dressy outfits. Even my cheekbones are looking more prominent. I am able to crank the treadmill up to 5 and not fall off or feel like I’m dying! My weight load is increasing—my weed whacker did not give me a back ache like it usually does—so my back is obviously getting stronger. I can feel my muscles getting firmer and my fat dissolving. It is all very motivating—I finally feel like I am taking care of myself in the most important way I need to.”
“As of this morning I am 46 pounds lighter than where I started and 19 pounds away from the weight I would like to hit, and that is a great feeling. I went from 44″ waist pants to a 36″ waist pants. I went from a 52 in a suit that didn’t look the best, to a 48 Athletic Fit in a suit that I had to have the pants and coat tailored down to fit my waist.”
“Before I started BTWG my Blood pressure was in the Pre-Hyper Tension range and moving up. On Friday, my BP was 104/62. For 37 years old that is pretty awesome! That puts me into the category with Children and Athletes after only 3 months! My Cholesterol was at 204 prior to the program and after only 3 months it is an outstanding 176!”
“In the first month the most noticeable thing so far has been the way I feel physically. I no longer feel constantly bloated and my clothes fit me MUCH better. I have lost about 8 pounds in 4 weeks… In appearance, I’ve noticed less flab in the mid-section, I’m starting to see my waist again! My arms and legs also have less flab on them and are slimming down… My strength and endurance has also improved. I can now do almost 10 modified push ups, compared to the 2 I did at the initial testing! My cardio exercises have gotten easier, my breath is not so labored and I enjoy the workouts a lot more now.”
“I attended the BTWG weekly meetings and found a great group of people. I was really encouraged by all of their ideas and they were all very non judgmental and offered some really great feedback on things to do differently.”
“Yesterday’s meeting was great! Gave me much to think about, and made me realize how much I need the support of others.”
“Awareness is huge, trust is huge. To any of you who aren’t ‘all in’, I’m telling you to trust the process. If you just do it, give it 2 weeks, you will notice it too. It’s not torture at all, it’s not, it’s setting yourself free. This is an awesome experience! No excuses!”
“BTWG was the greatest gift I could have given myself… the workouts were AMAZING and I’m already looking forward to cycling through them again!! Thank you thank you thank you for a tremendous experience… and for helping me take 3 inches off my hips!!”- Jen
