In 1989, I became the first person in United States to initiate a private, professional training facility, all by appointment ONLY, which leveraged into high end personal training. In the early 1990s I became a Certified Strength & Conditioning Specialist with the NSCA and also a Certified Personal Trainer with the American Council on Exercise. At that time I also was a Certified Personal Trainer with the International Sport Science Association which I subsequently let lapse and simply maintained my aforementioned certifications. Since then I have trained over 65,000 people working 6 days per week, from 5:30 AM to 8 PM. My techniques, which I developed while training 7 days a week, 10 hours per day from age 8 to age 20 (which we now know is NOT the right way to train) brought incredible knowledge of what works and what doesn't. I transferred the knowledge into INCREDIBLE RESULTS for my clients focusing only on the proven techniques that worked and were safe. In the beginning of my business, hundreds of my clients shed 5-7 inches off of their waist in a mere 10 visits (One Month), while many others put on 8 to 14 pounds of lean muscle in only 4 weeks. Skeptics decried that these results were impossible to obtain, however several local surgeons, clients themselves, endorsed the reality of Joe's techniques when they too received these same results and word quickly spread. In short time I had hundreds of clients per week. One such surgeon stated he taught in medical school that what I accomplished with him was IMPOSSIBLE for the human body to do, until he saw the results with the changes I created in his body. Since then, I have trained 8 world champion fighters, Various Olympians, professional baseball, football, soccer players, just to name a few, as well as professional racers, cyclists, and motorcycle riders. Triathletes and marathon runners attend as well to improve performance. The main bulk of my clients now are just professional Silicon Valley Workers and their family members including children (8 years and above) wanting to improve their health, lose body fat, gain strength and energy, and feel better about themselves. Doctors, Chiropractors, and Surgeons refer their patients to me as well. I also own possibly the largest personal training ONLY facility in the USA, with over 100 high end commercial pieces including 15 high end cardio pieces (including virtual reality treadmills and elliptical). I have all sorts of free weights and specialty weight lifting bars. The training area alone is 5,000 square feet of by appointment only training. I only allow 4 clients in the training facility at one time (I do have my certified staff working with me here) so we ensure a private environment. I do have showers, lockers, and a private measure room where we measure body fat, take girth measurements, and discuss nutrition. We also have a full assortment of medical quality anatomical models on display for training purposes. Please see more about my facility at JoeGrassoEliteTraining.Com
