Chris Green's passion for basketball has led him from the courts of his high school to the major arenas where he played with the ABA West All-Star Team. Though he was bestowed with many awards and accomplishments throughout his career, Green realized that his life's calling was not with basketball, but with helping people improve their lives through fitness. Eager to use his athletic talents to make a difference, he graduated with a degree in kinesiology and became certified in personal training through the International Sports and Science Association.
Today, Green combines the athletic prowess he cultivated on the basketball court with a positive, yet intense style of training during six-week boot camp programs, personal training sessions, and motivational coaching sessions. Dedicated to propelling students towards their fitness goals—whether those goals include losing weight, toning muscle, or squeezing into child-sized giraffe costumes—he supplements training sessions with regular motivational videos. Green also conducts regular self-improvement seminars on nutrition and body image.
The consortium of professional instructors at Fred Astaire Dance Studios, which was cofounded by the legendary toe tapper himself, shepherds students of all ages and skill levels through lessons that span the style spectrum. Low-pressure private sessions allow enthusiastic teachers to fine-tune individual students' techniques and form, using their expert eyes and mechanical dancing shoes preprogrammed to do the Charleston. Patrons can learn how to cavort through classic waltz and fox-trot romps or swivel through the modern steps of salsa, swing, or samba. For dancers hoping to hoof it up in a social setting, the group practice parties provide a one-night extravaganza of instruction, demonstrations, and amateur firewalking.

Designed to be challenging, yet accessible to guests of all ages and fitness levels, the CrossFit regimen uses high-intensity sequences of functional exercises to create new full-body workouts each day. These functional exercises are inspired by the sorts of movements that people may perform in everyday life, such as pushing, pulling, jumping, throwing, and giving piggyback rides to everyone on the block. By incorporating some elements of weightlifting, gymnastics, and track and field into each workout, CrossFit Haste's coaches help students develop greater strength and endurance over time. Attendees have complete control over their own workouts, which means that they can scale the load as well as the intensity of each exercise. Additionally, the coaches demonstrate proper technique and offer supportive guidance throughout each session, helping students challenge themselves while minimizing the risk of injury.
