Ridgefield Personal Trainer Greg Herzog of Herzog Body Tech LLC and OSTEOPATHIC FITNESS®, Downtown Ridgefield, Celebrates his 25th Anniversary in Ridgefield
Greg Herzog of Herzog Body Tech LLC is one of the first private personal training studios in Ridgefield, since 1994. (Located above Deborah Ann's Sweet Shoppe, on 383 Main Street.)
Greg is a former Sub-Four Minute Miler and Certified Olympic Trainer, that has had operations in NYC, Beverly Hills, Palm Beach and South Hampton NY.
It all started at the University of Maryland College Park where Greg was attending school and running for the University, where he met John Philbin, a strength coach at the time for the University of Maryland basketball and track team, and now the San Diego Padres strength coach.
John taught and trained Greg with manual Resistance training and PNF Stretching and introduced him to the (HIT) High Intensity strength Training method of training, invented by Arthur Jones, the founder of Nautilus.
Upon graduating from the University of Maryland Greg took all of his training he learned from John and started his own personal training business in Scarsdale NY, and then Manhattan NY; where he worked with clients such as Harvey Keitel, Naomi Campbell, Neil Sedaka, the Fords and the Rockefellers.
He then expanded his personal training business to Malibu and Beverly Hills, California, where he worked with celebrity clients such as David Geffen and Rob Lowe.

Over the past 25 years as a personal trainer in Ridgefield, Greg has developed (ARS) AXIS RELEASE STRETCHING® and AXIS CORE® to improve upon PNF, and High Intensity Training HIIT and Pilates, along with THE SECRET MAP® QUANTUM MAPPING® an artificial intelligence program for coaching and performance, while also developing and trademarking OSTEOPATHIC FITNESS® structural functional fitness TM. He is also the author of The 15 Minute Stress Relief Program book, that he co-wrote with Craig Masback.
