What we can do:


Strengthen Your Core


If the abdominals are weak, other areas must pick up the slack. When we strengthen the abdominals, it often reduces the strain on the lower back. Our goal in increasing flexibility is to put an equal load throughout the body from the feet all the way up to the head.


Improve Flexibility

A brief background of the inception and creation of OSTEOPATHIC FITNESS®; while Greg was attending Auburn University, he was at the height of his game (1500-meter track), when his knees gave out.


Greg was brought to the famous Houston clinic in Columbus Georgia, where Dr. Houston took a look at Greg's knees. Greg was never notified of his condition, which he, many years later, would find out at the Hospital of Special Surgery (HSS) in NYC, that "he was lucky that he could walk, say much about run".


The Auburn coaches did not feel he could compete in his condition any more at the level they required. Greg transferred to the University of Maryland with one year of eligibility left. Coach Torpey took a chance on Greg. Greg not only proved that he could run again, but he broke the Four Minute Mile barrier, thought to be impossible until it was broken in 1954 by Roger Bannister.

Greg did not find out what the story was about his condition until he met with Dr. Alcheck at HSS. Before the X-rays Greg kidded with Dr. Alcheck “get ready for a world record”. Dr. Alcheck said to Greg “if I didn't see you sitting over there, I would say these are X-rays of someone who can’t walk”. Greg was annoyed with the diagnosis, especially after hearing that there was really nothing he could do. So, Greg became a researcher, reading every book and periodical he could get his hands on how to function at the highest level in his condition; with no cartilage in either knee, flat feet and a sway back.

28 years later Greg is still walking. He doesn't run, but bikes 1 hr. religiously daily.


He care to realize how important an all-encompassing total body fitness; strength, flexibility, balance and mental and emotional outlook are for overall health; he trademarked OSTEOPATHIC FITNESS®.

"You are as strong as your weakest link". As a trainer and coach that has been through so much mentally, physically, emotionally and nutritionally, Greg believes he can help his clients best by identifying with many of their trials and tribulations.
