Chris started coming to what is now ELC Fitness 24/7 when she entered a weight loss challenge there in 2014. It took her about a year and a half to reach her goal, and she has been coming to the gym and staying active ever since. Chris works full-time as the Office Manager at the Stevens Soil and Water Conservation District. You will also see her working part-time at the 24/7 gym, cleaning the facility, and assisting with memberships in both English and Spanish. She has been learning Spanish for a few years now and also teaches English as a Second Language (ESL) classes in the evenings and serves on the board of Conexiones, a non-profit organization with the mission of connecting immigrants with the community. She feels it’s very important to help newcomers feel included and welcome in Morris and she does what she can to help improve communication between English and Spanish speakers in town. Chris and her husband live in the country outside of Morris and she enjoys camping and riding horses in her spare time.
