“Chris Murphy goes above and beyond anything you could want or ask for in a trainer.  He personally invests in each individual client by customizing workout plans, encouraging you to reach your goals, and sharing in your successes.  Since beginning to workout with Chris 10 weeks ago, I am down 30 lbs. and have not felt this strong since playing sports in high school.  There is no doubt in my mind that this could not have been accomplished without him.  He comes to my house 4 days a week to workout and actively checks in about the nutritional side.  He has mastered the process of getting into shape by making it convenient, affordable, simple, and most importantly, fun!  I am super excited to continue to be challenged and reach my goals thanks to Coach Murphy.”


“I came to Chris Murphy looking for guidance in my struggle to lose weight.  I was a former High School and College athlete who had been steadily packing on pounds since I’d left school.  On my 29th birthday, at 260 pounds, I felt like my playing days were long behind me and any hope of getting in shape gone along with them.  After meeting with Chris I learned that I couldn’t have been more wrong.   Using his knowledge of exercise and nutrition, Chris Murphy set me up with a personalized fitness program that started me on a path, not just towards weight loss, but towards better health and with his ability as a coach and a motivator helped me stay on that path.  My 30th birthday is coming up in a couple of weeks and I’ve lost just over 70 pounds, but more importantly my strength, stamina & flexibility are all better than they’ve ever been, I’m back playing the sports I love and I’ve never felt better.  Thanks Chris!”

What I like about Chris Murphy……When I began my training program I needed a personal trainer that would both motivate me and teach me “how to exercise”. Chris is helping me achieve my fitness goals and is extremely accommodating – he comes to my house 2 times a week at 5:15 am, which fits into my busy schedule. He is very encouraging (even at 5:15 am) and very knowledgable about fitness programs and nutrition. I have lost almost 20 pounds in 5 months. Yes, this has been a slow process, but I’m making a life style change and my goal is wellness along with weight loss. Chris has supported me with every pound, push-up and squat jump. (Which I now know what a “squat jump” is and can do them!) I highly recommend Chris as a personal trainer — he’s awesome!


Coach Murphy is an excellent coach! His E-book is a great tool for a healthier life. Whatever plan in the E-book you choose is easy, simple and not time consuming. The 1st month on his program, I lost 16 pounds. Coach Murphy provides the tools and motivation, all you need is the will power and want!


Coach Murphy is an excellent trainer. I have been working out since I was in high school but never used a trainer. I read a lot and worked out with people who knew what they were doing. But now that I am 41, I need all the help I can get! And Coach is by far the best. We have been working out with him since the beginning of January. We work out 2 times a week and have never done the same routine! He mixes it up and pushes us to our limits. But the best thing is that he isn’t mean about it! He is always motivational and watches out for our health and well being. And I have lost 13 pounds!! And he comes to our house!! I can do one more better…he also has an assistant that pushes us as well. Coach and her work with 8 of us and 4 of us are kids!! They ensure that the kids are getting the proper techniques and are learning the importance of eating healthy and staying active. Our kids play sports year round and this little extra has them staying fit and being better prepared for when their sports seasons start up. And most importantly, they teach them safely…it’s all done with their own body weight! Also, our kids get to learn why it’s important to take care of your body always…because their parents took about 12 years off and we are struggling to get back into shape!! Thanks Coach Murphy and Ms. Chelsea, you both are awesome and do a great job!! I highly recommend Ruff Cut if you want to get fit and stay fit!!


I started with Chris Weighing 262 and 7 weeks in I’m weighing 238 and have more energy than I’ve had in years. He’s there for me on the days I don’t want to be there and makes sure I put forth that extra effort. Can’t wait to see my results at the end of his 12 week program.


My names MacKenzie and I work with Chris a few days a week. I’ve worked out many times before I started working with him but I never saw results. He shows you the proper way to work out so you get the results you want and get them quickly. I’ve developed muscle that you can actually see and I’ve gotten so much stronger which has helped me tremendously with softball and my confidence. I love training with Chris because he pushes you to work your hardest but also makes the workout enjoyable.


“A few weeks ago I started working out with Ruff Cut Fitness and I hit the jackpot with Chris! I learned about Ruff Cut through a friend who had great success so it gave me the motivation to try. I haven’t felt this good in years! I see Chris for private and group sessions- both are amazing. Chris cares about each and every one of his clients. He really pin points each clients’ needs and focuses on those as a way to push and motivate us. He pushes me to do better and his passion is contagious. He has relit the fire in me to push myself and given me the tools and the confidence I need to continue achieving my goals. If you want a lifestyle change, contacting Chris Murphy is the first step!”


In high school and throughout college, I have always been a fairly active person, playing numerous sports and running a half marathon. Since then, I’ve tried to keep up with a semi-active lifestyle by running fun 5k’s whenever possible and going to the gym and exercise classes regularly.  But it wasn’t enough.  After a hard day’s work teaching, going to meetings, tutoring, and other various school-related activities Monday through Friday, it was very difficult to push myself to work out every day. I knew I didn’t want to feel that way, I wanted the gym to be part of my daily routine and something I looked forward to, not something I felt like I had to do. I have always said that I just needed someone to come to the gym with me and tell me what to do. One day, in conversation with Coach Murphy, he explained to me that he was a personal trainer.  I immediately started asking questions and began training with him and my roommate in June of 2015.  My roommate, Chelsea, and I started training with him before work in the morning. At first, it was a bit of a struggle, but I LOVED working out before my body even understood what was happening. I was thrilled that I already had a workout in before my day even got started.   Now, we still workout together but after school and on weekends with a group of ladies!  Coach Murphy always comes to workouts with a big smile and full of energy and encouragement.  He trains us with care and compassion and will do whatever he can to make our experience rigorous, fun, and goal- achieving. Between random phone calls just to check in and say hi, to his persistent FitnessPal update reminders, He genuinely cares about each and every one of his clients.  He goes above and beyond to ensure everyone is happy and being accommodated. Coach Murphy is beyond well-qualified to teach and train his clients to be the best they can be.  I am confident in Coach Murphy’s formal educational endeavors as well as his experiences, so I know that every lunge, frog jump, and plank I do will improve my quality of life and lead me down the right path to my future fitness goals. From June, I am down 10 pounds and have lost a total of 12 inches between my stomach, waist, hips, arms, and legs. I still have 15 more pounds to lose to achieve my long-term goal, and I continue to work out with the Ruff Cut ladies and Coach Murphy 4 days a week. #getcutgetbutt #dieselmode


Over the last 4-5 years, I let my busy work and family schedule become my excuse for not working out.  I believed that since I walked around school all day, I was getting all the exercise I needed. Towards the end of the summer, I became frustrated because my clothes were not fitting well and I didn’t feel good about myself.  With my 40th birthday approaching, I knew I needed a change.  I was invited to join a Ruff Cut Fitness workout and decided to give it a try.  After just one workout,  I knew Coach Murphy was the person that could help me achieve my fitness and health goals. During the last 3 ½ months, I have been challenged and pushed by Chris.   He makes working out fun and inspires me to reach new goals.   Coach Murphy is very caring and attentive to what each client needs, what their limits are, and how far he can push them.  I have been very impressed by his passion to help, his knowledge, and his ability to connect with his clients. If you have been making excuses, or ready for a lifestyle change, I strongly encourage you to call Coach Murphy…you will not regret it!
