Christopher Isom was born and partial raised in Beaumont, Texas before moving to a very small, rural town called Bleakwood in South East Texas where I graduated from Newton High School. Being from a small town with a population of about 2,000 people, my parents taught me and my siblings the value of hard work. In my youth, I always had a passion for fitness, exercise and health. I can distinctly remember at the age of ten studying and analyzing people’s bodies. How the body moved, muscle definition, symmetry. I was an All- Region basketball player in High-School and eventually an All-American basketball player in College at East Texas Baptist University. With hard work and determination that was instilled in me in my youth, I eventually lived out my childhood dream and had a brief professional basketball career overseas in Iceland. Though the years i have began incorporating yoga, meditation, walks in nature, reading and adopting a healthy, holistic lifestyle. I am a certified personal trainer, a Holistic Health, Lifestyle and Wellness Coach with the Institute of Integrative Nutrition and a Yoga Instructor and Motivational Speaker. Through my company (IsomZone) we teach and educate individuals and underserved communities on the holistic ways of healing through positive thought, action, proper nutrition and an overall healthy lifestyle. Each day i wake up i ask myself what can i do to grow and enhance my mind, my body, and my soul. My passion runs deep for our youth, our future leaders. As I mentor to the youth through our “Be The Change” initiative, I always look for opportunities to work with other like minded individuals who are inclined to healing our communities and making a positive and lasting impact. The ‘Be The Change’ movement is calling each individual to look themselves in the mirror and as “how can i make a difference today?’ My hope is to inspire the youth to be confident and bold and that they can achieve and be anything they want to be. Giving back to others is one of the most fulfilling things in my life and I look forward to seeing how God uses me now and into the future. The mark I want to leave in this world is one of Love, Peace, and Harmony. Together we can make a real impact and lasting change. #BeThe Change
