Dietitian/Sports Nutritional Coach
I’m a dedicated/passionate fitness professional, free-lance dietitian/Sports nutritional coach, with over 12 years of experience in the competitive contest preparation coaching and dietetics related field.
I grew up a small town of Hampton Bays, New York, in Eastern Long Island, where my passion for athletics and competitive spirit began to manifest at an early age. By the age of eighteen (18) I had become a 4 time all-county , Suffolk county champion, all-state, and nationally ranked Wrestler.
After High School, I originally committed to Wrestle at Hofstra University( at the time top 10 in the country division one program). From my horrific experiences with cutting weight for wrestling I had then I came to the conclusion that I wanted to focus helping other individuals not make the same mistakes I did in regards to the unhealthy approaches I previous took to make weight requirements for Wrestling. After discovering my passion , I then switched majors for business development & transfer to SUNY Cortland State University, and would attain my degree in Exercise Science/Dietetics(licenses nutritionist/dietitian with a specialty in sports nutrition).
Head Posing Coach
I want to welcome everyone to Unchained Physiques. I’ve been an athlete my whole life ever since I’ve been old enough to walk. Played soccer and basketball growing up. I’ve always loved and respected the sport of bodybuilding and in 2018 I decided to compete in my first competition in Charlotte, NC where I became nationally qualified to compete at nationals. I have done a total of 5 competitions which has taught me a lot about presentation on stage, what the judges look for, and how to display your best look on stage. My passion and drive began 5 years ago when I met our head coach for Unchained Physiques Mr. Mike Rattenni to start learning and understanding the sport. I watched and observed Mike’s every move with his athletes because I wanted to learn and help people some day. That day has come! I help most of our current athletes now @unchained_physiques as one of the posing coaches but also inviting all beginners, NPC, and IFBB competitors that need or could use a posing coach. I can help you learn the basics of posing and what needs to be done for you to succeed on stage. I feel confident simply because of how much I practice and study the sport but more importantly how closely I work with IFBB PRO Coach Mike to keep improving and learning. Let's get your journey started!!!
Rayanne Collins (IFBB PRO)
I would like to welcome and congratulate you on taking the first step in changing your life. My name is Chris and I have been involved in sports and fitness since the day I could walk. I have been passionate about self-improvement since a young age, playing and competing in street soccer leagues and Futsal tournaments in the third world country of Lebanon until the age of 13. When my family moved back to the US, I got involved in High School and Club soccer and was destined to play at Rutgers University. That is until I suffered 2 herniated discs in my back from a car accident, which would put a major halt to my soccer career. Due to suffering this injury, I was determined to get back in top shape. This is what ignited my interest in the human body, how it's supposed to move and function, and nutrition to perform at the highest level possible.
I went on to study Exercise Science at Rutger University, where I also competed in the sport of Olympic Weightlifting and would go on to qualify for Collegiate Nationals. During my time at University I would train the other athletes on our team to help them perform at a higher level, and would also start work as a Personal Trainer. I continued working as a Personal Trainer and Coach after graduating, because the most gratifying feeling for me became seeing my clients transform their lives and bodies. I just wanted to get people in the best physical and mental shapes of their lives, in the healthiest, most sustainable, and most effective way.
Over the years I have developed strategies and plans to maximize hypertrophy, have the body perform at a high level, all while maintaining health through nutrition, supplementation and proper recovery.
