Introducing Chris!


Chris began his journey and interest in nutrition and health around the same time he started his career in Beach Volleyball. With a 6’10 frame and in a full-time training program competing for England, Chris had some nutritional struggles he needed to address when it came to fuelling, recovery, and health for training, as well as life off the court.
He began his studies with THSA in 2012. Chris’ favourites are Nutritional Therapy, Gut Health, Clinical Weight Loss, and Detox Nutrition.
He competed for Team England in the Commonwealth Games in 2018. It’s Chris’s ambition to continue his journey in professional sports and to compete at the Commonwealth Games in 2022.
Staying fit and healthy is now a lifestyle. Having been in the sport and practiced proper nutrition for so long, it is now an integral part of the training and life!


Pure science! The courses go straight to the heart of what’s genuine and founded on research! That’s one key thing that I’ve always loved about THSA courses. Also, the courses are online, and access any time and anywhere means you can learn at your own pace. The learning experience is also made great by the way the courses are broken down and carefully laid out by Alex. They’ve carefully created everything in and around the course material for the student, and since 2012, its been a pleasure to learn about specialist areas of nutrition science with them.

Fun Fact:

Outside of sport, nutrition and studying an MBA, he very nearly made a break into a major movie franchise!
