About Henry Gaskins:

Henry Gaskins, Writer, Poet, Certified Health and Life Coach, Founder & CEO of Chrysalis Transformational Coaching Service LLC of Raleigh NC.

Henry is a Wellness/Fitness enthusiast, Creator and host of the C.R.U.S.H. Your Mountain weekly podcast (FB/YouTube), and Creator of the C.R.U.S.H. Method, a modality by which clients create change and reinvent themselves

His words to live by are: “Don’t just climb your mountain, crush through it!”

“We are all in the state of ‘becoming’, the goal is to be intentional about your outcome.”

Becoming a caregiver for two disabled parents, one of whom suffered from schizophrenia/dementia, he left school and eventually found himself in Manufacturing working in Shipping Receiving. After suppressing his natural creativity and being diagnosed as prediabetic, he had only two choices:

  1. Either accept the doctor’s perspective that the condition was irreversible and hereditary, there’s nothing he could do about it, just take insulin until death or…
  2. Take charge of his life, find a way to slow, halt and reverse the condition, and create a pathway to help himself and others while utilizing his creativity to grow and develop a business that nourishes his inner self.

He chose the latter.

Henry created the C.R.U.S.H. Method, a modality that takes one through a 4-step sequence to Conceive/Commit, Refine/Rework, Undertake, Sustain, and Habituate. He lost 25lbs and built his body to allow its muscularity to metabolize glucose more efficiently. He created the YouTube program C.R.U.S.H. Your Mountain: Health, Wellness, and Personal Growth to share his journey and that of others who have their challenges. He now works with clients to help them find a path in life, lose weight, and build confidence through muscular development.
