Greg Mack, ACE-CMES, RTSm, ACE-CPT
Founder and CEO
As Founder and CEO, Greg’s vision for Physicians Fitness was shaped over 26 years ago while working as a lay assistant to physicians in a sports medicine clinic. It was during this tenure that he noticed the unfortunate reality that most of the patients of the clinic were there as a result of poor physical conditioning. He observed that the patient base consisted of individuals who would return to the clinic for treatment of re-injury to a problem area, or the development of new symptoms, possibly due to compensation patterns created by the original pathophysiology. The medical and chiropractic staff encouraged these patients to participate in exercise and fitness programs, but did not have the time nor resources to effectively assess, develop, and implement a safe, global health-fitness plan.
Greg’s Education & Formal Training
As a graduate of the Navy’s Nuclear Engineering School, Greg used his foundation of engineering skills, his enthusiasm for fitness, academic certifications ACE–Medical Exercise Specialist (CMES), ACE-Personal Trainer (CPT), (American Council on Exercise) and Resistance Training Specialist Mastery (resistancetrainingspecialist.com) – and his extensive experiences working with a wide variety of medical professionals to develop the Muscle System Specialist™ Training Program and the Mobility Profiling Method of pre-exercise physical assessment.
Experience to Lead, Awareness to Guide
His experience in working in such diverse venues as community gyms, chiropractic and medical practices 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.
Publications & Memberships
Greg’s involvement in the fitness industry includes authoring articles for fitness and medical publications, presenting relevant topics to fitness professionals at continuing education conferences, and achieving the “Master Level” designation as a personal fitness professional from IDEA (www.ideafit.com). Greg received the IDEA International Personal Trainer of the Year Award for the year 2003 and was the Chairman of the IDEA Personal Trainer Committee, an influential body steering important issues related to fitness professionals.
