Chris Shaffer  (or just . . . Shaffer)

Owner / Head Coach

I found out early in my life that helping others is what I was put on this earth to do. I love coaching, mentoring and leading: from leading and speaking at church groups, to speaking at high schools about drunk driving , to coaching kids and adults in all aspects of volleyball, strength training, conditioning and healthy lifestyle, and for 3 decades, I have been doing just that.

I love sports and competition.  Tennis, baseball, basketball, soccer, volleyball . . . you name it, I played it.  Well, except football – I was a band geek. I learned early, that if you want something, you have to work for it and don’t expect it to just be given to you.  My mom is slightly OCD and my dad was in the Navy, so doing things the right way and working hard was (and is) just part of life.

To excel in something you have to be willing to work hard, but not just at working hard.  Digging a hole to China with a spork is hard work, but it’s only just that. It’s not very efficient or effective.  You have to have a great coach to show you what to work hard on and what tools to use.  And after spending the last 30 years coaching, playing and training volleyball at all levels, that’s what I love to do and am good at,  teaching people the technically correct and most efficient ways to do things, on and off the court.

In December of 2012, I had the opportunity to step out on my own and open my own training location.  That month, Shaffer Strength & Conditioning, LLC. was born and the lifetime of coaching and training others had finally been realized.

At Shaffer Strength & Conditioning we strive to ensure that you have fun, are challenged and are technically sound and safe in all movements that are performed.  We understand what it takes to reach the next level of competition and have the tools and experience necessary to help you get there.
