Training Philosophy

The Road to Success

Everyone’s journey to success is unique and shaped by experiences, knowledge, and supportive mentors along the way. In my own journey, I’ve relied on scientific research, learned from trial and error, and benefited greatly from mentors who guided me.

Get Invested

Step by step, I'll guide you through transforming your life. But first, ask yourself: Do you truly want this change? Wanting it isn't enough; you must feel a deep need for it. When you truly desire something, you'll find the determination to make it happen.

Take Action

Success doesn't come from wishing and hoping alone; it requires action. Take the necessary risks and put in the effort required for success. Start by making small lifestyle changes and stay motivated, tackling one day at a time.

Keep Out Bad Habits

Building a strong foundation is essential. Just like a house with termites won't last, you need to identify and eliminate self-defeating behaviors. It's time to let go of old habits and embrace new, positive ones.

Reward Yourself

Celebrate every victory, no matter how small. Each step forward counts towards your journey. Recognize and appreciate your continuous efforts. Remember, a positive present leads to a brighter future.

Client Feedback


Kris is very professional, knowledgeable, accomplished and persistent. He was referred to me by a friend and I have other friends that train with him as well. He comes highly reccommended.

Scott Mitchel
Mind-Body Balance

Kris is excellent. He is reliable and especially adept at pushing me through my many little injuries. My back pain has gone from all-encompassing to manageable during the time that I have worked with Kris. The credit goes to him. I would recommend him to all my friends. I already have.

James Crowson
Mind-Body Balance

If you’re looking for a trainer who’s worth his salt, has gone through extensive schooling and has a very personal background in the fitness industry then Kris is your man. I have consulted with trainers in the past who do not nearly come close to his amount of dedication and skill level. He has coached me through the beginning stages of lifting, mental road blocks, helped me recover properly from injury and is now helping to push me further in my fitness journey as I’ve progressed. I have been working with Kris for almost 7 months now and could not be happier with him as a trainer and the difference I see and feel with my body. Believe me, you want a trainer like Kris.

Kristen Azzinaro
Foundations of Wellness

Kris is an amazing personal trainer. I can't say enough good about him. He works with several people at my office and we all range in our abilities. Kris has been able to tailor workouts for each of our needs. For instance, with me, I had a nerve entrapment in my left shoulder that had caused my rhomboid to waste away. Kris has focused on that area for me and has been able to get the muscle working again and strengthen it such that my shoulder blades no longer wing away from back and I have a lot less pain. One of my other coworkers who works out with him has cardio and flexibility as their goals, so they spend their time working on that. Point being that Kris has the range to work out with someone who is recovering from an injury and isn't in shape to someone who is a body builder or other skilled athlete. He is patient, dependable and fun to be around. You won't be sorry if you start working with him.

Claire Bourquin
Mind-Body Balance

2014 was a rough year for me when it came to my physical appearance. I was in the worst shape of my life due to a new job and a shift in priorities. After realizing how this was effecting my confidence and overall satisfaction with life I decided to talk with Kris Black about doing something. Once the New Year started, Kris was able to help me identify realistic goals and taught me what is was to make healthy living a lifestyle, not just a phase. He provided direction in both my daily workout routine and proper dieting. Without his help I wouldn't be where I am today! I'm now in the BEST shape of my life having competed in my first NPC physique competition! This again was due in large part to Kris' help with my peak week and the exercise leading up to the show. I'm looking forward to competing again this year in 2016 and qualifying for a national competition before my 30th birthday! Thanks for all the dedication and constant motivation Kris!

Before & After


Jacob entered into BPI’s Best Self 6 Week Challenge. He placed 9th out of +40K participants, solidifying his case of pushing his body to the maximum. Jacob entered another 6 week challenge sponsored by Muscle Pharm a few months later. He experienced a similar transformation and even higher placing on his way to the craziest changes in the World.

Jason came to Signature Methods after already losing a substantial amount of body weight. His goal was to flip from what could be considered obesity to the leanest standard out there – “stage” ready. He’s on his journey still, but his hard work and progress deserves recognition.

Sean began his journey with Signature Methods after ending his collegiate football career. Years of training for sports and using excessive weight gain to compete in college made his transition particularly unique. However, he has made amazing changes and has done so entirely through online training.

Dustin spent almost a year changing his whole lifestyle in order to make a brilliant change in his physique. The most important point is that his changes will stick because he put the time in to build everlasting healthy habits.

Kiani had been through countless sessions with other trainers. By the time she met with Signature Methods, she didn’t know what to believe! Getting her squared away and on the right track was all it took for her. She’s reliable and naturally motivated and this isn’t even the finish line for her!

Lee had always wanted to add muscle to his 6’5″ frame but had a tough time adding muscle and losing fat. Lee is a former division 1, conference champion swimmer that was used to circuit training and endurance based training. With six months of training, he added an ideal amount of muscle and lost all the fat necessary to meet his ideal self. Congrats Lee!

Isabelle, AKA “Izzy”, was a hard-working student who had been an athlete her whole life. Making the transition into bodybuilding with the help of Signature Methods not only inspired her to stay healthy, but she inspired her entire school! Izzy is now a division one rower and an impactful student in the classroom and in the gym.

Kylie came with a simple goal. She wanted to fit into a dress that she adored, and only had a couple of weeks before the event she wanted to wear it to. Not only did she fit into the dress after losing twenty pounds, she continued to challenge herself by competing in a triathlon and continuing her fitness journey.

Stewart sought the advice of Signature Methods years before he made it onto the stage. A simple consultation one late evening drove Stewart on a new path of discipline and passion. With the guidance of Signature Methods again, several years later, Stewart has found his passion for competing and finally stepped on stage!

Claire approached personal training with Signature Methods to regain strength. Claire had been involved in an accident which had damaged the scapular nerve and left her with chronic pain and limited muscle activation in the shoulder. Using corrective exercises, Claire was able to regain muscle activation and strength. Retraining her movement patterns reduced her chronic pain, and today she remains pain free and healthy!
