If you sign up for our GearUp Beginner’s Program, Coach Chris Maag will be one of the first coaches you will meet.  And, no doubt, you will love him!  He is excited about working with newbies and is very skilled in teaching the foundational movements which are essential in CrossFit training.  His non-threatening, easy going approach makes all of his athletes in his class feel at ease.  Coach Chris is very patient and knowledgeable and desires for every athlete to improve.

He has been involved in CrossFit since 2013 and has been coaching since 2015.  Chris and his wife, Brittany, love our community and even though they have had many travel opportunities with their careers, they have chosen to call the Greater Akron area home.  Chris leads a busy life working for our area hospitals as a surgical assistant but still finds time to make CrossFit a priority in his life.

“I coach at HG for the opportunity to fulfill a passion of mine, the humility of giving back to the community, and the humbling experience seeing someone overcome a fear or a hurdle once thought impossible.  Being the GearUp coach, I find it so rewarding to work with the newest athletes, (0-3 months of experience) preparing you for your fitness journey, and making your experience at Crossfit HighGear safe and worthwhile!  Safety, efficiency and self-awareness are the three principles I try to instill in my athletes; the strength, stamina and endurance will come…I promise!”  

We are certainly very blessed to have Coach Chris Maag at our box and feel very fortunate to have him on our team!
