BACK PAIN RELIEF NOW
To give you a brief background of the inception and creation of OSTEOPATHIC FITNESS®; while Greg was attending Auburn University, he was, as they say, 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 an assistant to Dr. Houston summoned Dr. Houston in to take 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.
Greg transferred to the University of Maryland College Park, due to the fact that the 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 and Coach Torpey took a chance on Greg. Greg not only proved that he could run again, but he broke the Four Minute Mile barrier, which was 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”. After Dr. Alcheck came into the room after an hour wait, he 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 being that Alcheck said 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 realized how important an all-encompassing total body fitness; strength, flexibility, balance and mental and emotional outlook are for overall health; mentally, physically, emotional and nutritionally. Therefore, he trademarked OSTEOPATHIC FITNESS® for all encompassing health.
You are only as strong as your weakest link, he always says. 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.
Greg wants to share all this knowledge and experience with others.
