Our story

The Cerus Fitness project was launched in 2017 for people who are looking to get meaningful results from their at-home workouts. Our training is a skills based approach to fitness that focuses on time and efficiency of your exercises, while still getting meaningful results.

In October of 2017, in Loveland, CO– CerusLuv became the first obstacle course race created by Cerus, followed by the first CerusRuk race in Northern Colorado in May of 2018.

In February of 2018, Cerus launched its first fitness tool, the “Brahma Bag”. A versatile tool that could be used at home, in gym, or on the go and work virtually any muscle group.


Cerus Fitness was founded by Chris Johnson in Denver, Colorado. Chris’s personal journey in fitness started nearly 10 years–and 70 pounds–ago, when he was overweight and seeking to make life changes after a series of short lived attempts using unsustainable techniques.

Chris got his starts as Certified Personal Trainer working with professional and amateur athletes beginning in 2010 in a variety of fields: boxing, basketball, football, marathon running, triathlons, and obstacle course racing before founding ultimately founding Cerus Fitness.

He is a husband, father of two, fitness fanatic and obstacle racing junkie who is lucky to call Colorado home.
