With more than a decade of experience in the insurance and financial industries specializing in employee benefits and long-term wealth management, Chris Martin is recognized as an innovative thinker and diligent problem solver. Working with Cyganiak Planning, Inc. (CPI), Martin maintains a unique stance that combines aspects of insurance and wellness, an area that Martin is familiar with on a personal level. After finding himself overweight, with multiple hospitalizations, and on numerous medications, Martin made a choice for his future. He chose wellness, and the result was a complete turnaround. Martin became an avid Brazilian Jiu Jitsu fighter, lost a great deal of weight, and had two children. In addition, he came to the realization that the decision and choices we make today affect us tomorrow. Thus, Martin used personal health as the catalyst to personally and professionally invest in his own future.
Utilizing his vast knowledge base of the health and financial sectors, Martin systematically maximizes the complete health and financial portfolios on individuals by minimizing poor health. Martin’s service is his advice, and while he’s been told he may be radical, he produces results. Numerous corporations and government groups are getting on board with this approach to preventive health care. Many see this as a complicated and convoluted subject, yet Martin sees it as quite simply: healthier people are the key benefit to the future. If we insure ourselves for the future, then we need to take care of ourselves in the present through awareness, fitness, and healthy living.
Being sick while you work minimizes earning potential, while being sick when you are retired depletes financial assets. To Martin, personal health and financial health run parallel to one another, and together can create legacies that we may leave for future generations. These legacies can only be achieved through direct education and awareness. Martin breaks down awareness into three categories: physical awareness, mental awareness, and financial awareness. This approach produces individualized wellness and overall personal and financial vitality.
