About Gary

I have been personally training for over 40 years and have studied martial arts, boxing and weight lifting. I have BS decrees in health/fitness and biology, a MS in Nutrition, a Doctor of Chiropractic and a PhD in Nutrition. I also have certifications in nutrition, exercise and acupuncture. I enjoy working with people who have medical issues (high blood pressure, arthritis, obesity, back pain, cardiovascular disease, high cholesterol, etc) as well as athletes especially boxers, wrestlers and mixed martial artists. I have been an adjunct professor and continue to teach health care providers in nutrition and exercise.

My classes are science based which ensures you get the results you want. I have a great success rate as I can combine nutrition, diet and exercise together due to my various degrees. We discuss your goals and design a program to meet those goals. Measurements are taken periodically to evaluate your progress and changes are made to ensure continual improvement. It is very rewarding to see people transform to better health and a better quality of life. You don't have to be a model or be an elite athlete. Most of us are not. But we all can enjoy full mobility and activity in our daily life.
