Fitness career of Chris Heria
Chris, alongside his brother Stephan, came from a mixed family: his mother was Chinese, and his father was Cuban. Chris was always a troublemaker who had problems paying attention to classes but managed to graduate from St. Brendan High School. In his teen years, Chris often accompanied Stephan to the gym, where he started to work out. He enjoyed exercising from a young age, dreaming of pursuing a career in fitness. In order to achieve that, Chris attended several fitness competitions while in high school.
Once he completed his studies, Chris started to work on his certifications. He wanted to become a personal trainer and put a lot of time and effort into it. He was intrigued by street workouts, so he became a professional street workout champion. He did so well that he got the chance to represent the United States in this discipline. Since he enjoyed his time in the spotlight and competed regularly, he got recognized by many people. The famous workout team, BarStarzz, approached him with an offer to become their representative.
Chris Heria on YouTube
Chris created his YouTube channel THENX in 2013 to share his passion with other people. His expertise stands in callisthenics, which are workouts built with the goal of getting as strong as possible. Calisthenics fitness trainers don’t usually have a problem with handstands or one-handed push-ups. Chris is a professional in this field, always giving the best advice. He is able to explain the dynamics behind every move, and his form is perfect. People who came across his channel usually decided to stay, which gave Chris a platform with millions of followers. His most popular video is 6 Pack Abs For Beginners You Can Do Anywhere, with over 97 million views. His videos are meant for people on all levels: whether you’re a beginner or an advanced athlete, Chris’s videos are for you.
Physical appearance of Chris Heria
Chris somehow manages to get famous on every social platform he crosses. His YouTube subscribing rate is getting close to 10 million. He also has 1,5 million followers on Instagram and a couple hundred thousand on TikTok. And even though his fitness advice is great, there is probably another reason. Chris is a naturally great-looking guy with a lean muscular body and short black hair. On top of that, Chris spent a lot of money on tattoos which cover a big portion of his body. His tattoos show some citations alongside the portrait of Albert Einstein and Albert Fish. His other tattoos show a sea monster, flowers and geometrical patterns. The whole pack creates a man desired by ladies and admired by men.
Controversy of Chris Heria
Even though his fans defend him at all costs, Chris, unfortunately, participated in some internet controversies. His first mistake lies in his weight loss videos, where he repeatedly talked about reducing belly fat. The online fitness community came after him because it has been proven that body fat can’t be targeted. They accused Chris of misleading his fans by promoting abs exercises as a solution to belly fat. This alone wouldn’t be so bad, but Chris decided to react to these accusations with the worst possible attitude. He came to his fellow influencer’s videos and commented on their weight and appearance, and questioned their motives.
Chris Heria vs Austin Dunham
Another controversy about Chris involved fellow fitness influencer Austin Dunham. Chris uploaded a video called Chris Heria vs Clout chasers, where he accused Austin of copying his workouts and his phrases. Austin made another video reacting to Chris, which showed him in a different light. Austin explained that he is just as experienced with callisthenics as Chris, meaning that it’s natural to post similar videos. He just made some videos where he looked at the same problems from his own perspective, and Chris took it too personally. Austin’s video went viral, showing Chris in a pretty unflattering light.
