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

Hi Christopher, what was your thought process behind starting your own business?
I opening my training facility to offer Functional Patterns training to people in the state of Arizona.

Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
The primary lesson I’ve learned from my line of work is that there are no shortcuts if you want to achieve sustainable health. There are also no shortcuts to achieving technical proficiency, so putting in countless hours of work is mandatory.

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.
I don’t go out much, so I don’t have too many recommendations for anyone visiting from out of town. Dhaba for food and Phon D Sutton are two places I like here.

Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
Naudi Aguilar and the FP Team.
