We had the good fortune of connecting with Christopher Boykins and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Christopher, is there a quote or affirmation that’s meaningful to you?
“You can lead a horse to the water but you can’t make the horse drink the water!” and “Shake What Your Momma Gave You!” -In my field of the fitness business, trainers have to do alot of encouragement to our clients. So I use these quotes to keep my client motivated to want to get results.

What should our readers know about your business?
I once was told to follow your passion to get to your dream; becoming the best Certified Personal Trainer and Non-Profit Community Worker is my next step towards achieving my dream. My Bachelor of Science Degree in Kinesiology and my Masters Degree in Health and Human Performance has and will continue to allow me to perform at a higher level in fitness and motivate those around me to do the same. I am currently an nineteen year Elite Fitness Professional in Houston, Texas. I also am the Founder/CEO of Glory Fitness,LLC. and the Boykins Youth Foundations, Inc. (Mentorship Program) www.boykinsyouth.com. Training and helping people achieve goals is my ultimate purpose on this earth. I want to share with others the CHANGE of LIFE EXPRESS which is…never underestimate the power of one.​​ ​​- Christopher M. Boykins M.S., Founder.

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
We would workout daily, stop at several popular restaurants and go fishing. Not too much to do during Covid-19.

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
The Boykins Youth Foundations participants have been working hard all summer during our Youth Fitness Workout Program.
