The two met seven years before these doors officially opened, with Chris playing the part of personal trainer and Alex—unknowingly—the first Cut Seven test.
Alex was building her marketing career and lost sense of balance, gaining over 40 pounds. Chris led a triple-life as accountant by day, PhD student by night, and personal trainer every spare minute in between. Chris created a program based on his football conditioning at UConn—hard intervals, zero bullshit, and total body soreness. In six months, Alex lost sixty pounds.
Inspired by a seemingly impossible transformation, Alex got certified and over time their training sessions shifted to business meetings. Over the next few years they went from coaching eight athletes at gravel parks to crowds of 500 at Union Market and the Nike sales floor.
For seven years, they made each other better—through marriage, baby, and a shared business. Today, the Cut Seven team is built on the same foundation as their original partnership: We push you. You push us. We all get better.
