Coach Valandra

My name is Chris "Mookie" Valandra. I have been a Coach/Teacher/Trainer in the St. Louis area since 2013. After playing basketball at Westminster College, I immediately became a Basketball Coach and Physical Education Teacher. During that time, I have continued to expand my knowledge in the sports and fitness world. I received my NASM CPT  to help train adults. For 2 years, I have been mentoring under the best basketball trainer, Drew Hanlen, of Pure Sweat. I started my training company in the late summer of 2021. I have helped 200+ players since that time. It has become a huge passion for me!


Whether we are on the court, in the gym, or in the classroom. I want to share my knowledge and passion, so I can help players get to where we want to be.


Basketball Development Coach, PureSweat Certified Trainer, NASM Certified Personal Trainer, Physical Education Teacher
