About Arden FBBC
Hi! Our names are Kris and Jill. We have a passion for fitness and health! We thrive on helping others achieve their goals and see results! Together we have discovered that we make an amazing team and enjoy coaching life balance through fitness and health.
Kris was born in 1973 in Cambodia, a country ravaged by war and decimated by a murderous regime. His family fled to America in 1977 and eventually settled in Sacramento, CA, where he’s resided ever since.
Kris initially took up weight training to help improve in high school wrestling, but he would soon begin winning teenage bodybuilding shows.
Kris has now spent over 20 years in the bodybuilding fitness industry. After 16 years of hard work competing in bodybuilding shows, he finally received the title of IFBB Pro in 2003.
In 2004, he participated in his first pro show, where he qualified for Mr. Olympia. Kris went on to compete in three Mr. Olympia bodybuilding shows, the “Super Bowl” of bodybuilding that Arno Schwarzenegger competed in! He has been featured in many fitness and bodybuilding articles, and he’s been on the cover of Flex Magazine, Muscular Development, and many more publications around the world. Along with the title came the ability to inspire others and act as a role model for the younger generation.
In 2010 Kris went in for heart surgery (aorta replacement) and woke up with a T-11 spinal cord injury. During the surgery, his spinal cord was suffocated, causing severe and irreversible damage. He was left without function from the waist down. Today, despite being given virtually no chance of walking again, Kris is training daily to regain lower-body mobility. He will never give up on walking. “I 100% believe that I will walk, squat, and leg press again,” Kris says.
Kris has been teaching at nutrition and training seminars for other trainers all over the world! In October 2015, Kris decided to open up another door and opened up Fitness Rock gym where he has been thriving for a year and a half. Kris specializes in personal training, group training, body building, transformation, show prep, posing, weight loss, and nutrition plans. You can find him in the gym almost every day. When he is not in the gym, he is usually working at home or spending time with his family. He truly values every client and his gym, and he’s there to meet all your fitness needs!
Jill has spent over 12 years in the health and fitness industry. She has extensive experience providing tailored training and nutrition to individuals and groups, and she’s passionate about helping people feel good about themselves and meeting all their fitness needs.
Jill has competed in three body building “bikini” shows, taking first place in her second show. She has competed in many CrossFit competitions in California and participated in multiple runs, taking first place in her age group in just two runs. Jill has a passion for health and fitness! She enjoys working closely with people to achieve their health and fitness goals. She specializes in group training, personal training, transformation, body building, weight loss, positive body image perspective, and nutrition plans. Jill truly believes that you can do anything you put your mind too.
Jill’s ultimate goal is to create total life balance involving all aspects of living well, including health, wellness, weight loss, and overall lifestyle. When Jill is not in the gym, she enjoys training herself and spending time with her family. She is the mother of two boys. She enjoys spending time by the pool, bbq’s, finding new healthy recipes, and getting involved with charitable events.
