Chris Tarpos is a 26 year old from Stoney Creek, Ontario, Canada. He works as a broadcast technician in the television industry in Toronto. He is also a part-time actor appearing in many TV shows and films, such as DegrassiWingin’ It, and most recently, the Emmy award-winning series, The Handmaid’s Tale.

In 2014, Chris decided to change his life in a drastic way. He was overweight and decided it was time to start going to the gym and eating healthy. He lost 150 pounds naturally over the course of a 3-year span. He is in the process of completing his weight loss documentary, which will be coming out in late 2019. You can view the trailer for, Chris Got Fit – A Weight Loss Documentary, on YouTube.

Once Chris started seeing results, going to the gym and eating healthy became a healthy addiction for him. He wants our readers to know that if he can inspire someone else to lose weight and live a healthy lifestyle, then he has done his job. Chris says, “If I can do this at the weight that I was, then you can too. I hope my story inspires others to reach their fitness goals. If you are worried that you can’t do this, just know that you can. Believe in yourself. Trust yourself. Don’t give up. Get a goal, get a plan, and get up off your ass. Always remember to breathe in and breathe out. If you are willing to do the work, you can do anything.”
