CHRIS IRWIN
Chris Irwin is a former Navy SEAL, former CrossFit gym owner, and former President of Kill Cliff who now serves as the company’s Senior Advisor. Chris spent 20 years in the military (14 active, 6 reserve) serving all over the world. Following his military service, Chris became an entrepreneur with a focus on giving back to Naval Special Warfare (NSW) and local communities. He and his family moved to St. Thomas where they founded the first CrossFit gym in the Virgin Islands, building a passionate community of over 150 members. Chris also competed in the 2012 and 2013 CrossFit Latin America Regionals, coming in 3rd place in 2012. In 2013, he became the President of Kill Cliff Inc, where he helped establish the first corporate Official Partnership with the Navy SEAL Foundation (NSF). Through 2017, he helped Kill Cliff raise and donate nearly $600,000 in cash, event sponsorships and product equivalencies for that non-profit organization. In 2018, Chris switched from supporting the NSF through Kill Cliff, to working for the Foundation as the Director of Development for the West Coast Region. He now devotes his full-time efforts to supporting the NSW community and its families. In his free time, Chris is also a singer/songwriter whose original works include the score and song “Sacrifice” from the film Murph: The Protector. Both made the short list for the 86th (2013) Annual Academy Awards in the categories of “Best Original Score” and “Best Original Song” respectively.
