Greg has operated out of chiropractic clinics, outpatient physical therapy clinics, a community hospital, large gyms and health clubs, as well operating private studios. His experience in working in such diverse venues enhanced his awareness of the wide gulf that exists between the medical community and fitness facilities, particularly for those individuals trying to recover from, and manage, a diagnosed disease. This led to the development of a comprehensive documentation and communication system that coordinates exercise and fitness programs for individuals with diagnosed diseases from the medical community, the core of Physicians Fitness operations. He developed the Muscle System Specialist™ Training Program and the Mobility Profiling Method of pre-exercise physical assessment.
Greg writes and presents on course topics including biomechanics, decision making, manual muscle testing, musculoskeletal anatomy, and physics (statics). Greg's presentation style tends to be more on the formal scientific side.
He's taught courses for several industry education companies on topics ranging from functional musculoskeletal anatomy, manual muscle testing, biomechanics, selling philosophy and methodology, physical assessment, decision-making, and science based methodologies in exercise assessment and data interpretation. He's written articles as well published in IDEA Personal Trainer Magazine, American Fitness Quarterly, Body Conditioning Magazine, IDEA Health and Fitness Source Magazine, and The American Journal of Medicine and Sports.
