Josh’s passion for strength training and the fitness industry began at an early age as an undersized high school football player. With dreams of playing at the collegiate level, he knew he’d have to work harder than others who were more physically gifted than him, so he used training as a means to even the playing field. Training hard helped Josh when he enrolled at Central Washington University in 2003 as a walk-on defensive tackle. After a year on the team, Josh was awarded a scholarship, starting position, and 1st Team All Conference honors as a Defensive Tackle. After seeing the impact that training had on his own athletic career, he developed a passion to share his knowledge with others. This led Josh change his program of study to Exercise Science, and he has been on a mission ever since to help others realize the benefits of proper training and a healthy lifestyle.

She received her undergraduate degree from her home state at the University of Connecticut and a Master of Education with a concentration in Biomechanics from Auburn University.

Gabby attended school to be an athletic trainer and quickly fell in love with the anatomy and musculoskeletal aspect of the human body. Following her post-professional graduate program, she began working in a physical therapy setting, further refining her musculoskeletal evaluation skills and understanding of the biomechanical considerations required for recovery after an injury. After working in a physical therapy setting for some time, she realized she strongly desired to develop an additional set of skills that would help her to provide her patients a more well-rounded evaluation and treatment plan. This led to her to become a certified yoga instructor. Yoga allowed her a more holistic approach as well as provided her a better opportunity to touch on the mind while continuing to incorporate the human body/anatomy, musculoskeletal system and biomechanics into her everyday practice. Gabby loves to educate others on the body hosting multiple workshops focusing on injury prevention and teaches classes for Columbia State Community College as an adjunct teacher in the Physical Education Branch.

Zane Griggs

Personal Trainer

Read Zane's bio...

Originally from California, I have made Nashville my home with my wife and four children. Since becoming an ACE Certified Personal Trainer in 1998, I have enjoyed helping people make the changes they need for a healthier life and reducing the intimidation factor associated with exercise.

I developed a particular interest in weight loss while working with two inspirational clients. The first was the Worsham family, a middle Tennessee mother and father who had contacted Dr. Phil for help with their overweight six year old daughter and, in the course of a year, lost 40lbs, 125lbs and 12lbs, respectively. The second, a reality show contestant who lost 200lbs, also in a year’s time. These experiences, and a frustration with the conflicting messages in the media about weight loss and the causes of obesity, created a desire to help people gain a better understanding of fat loss and how their bodies work.

I am also personally inspired to set the example for my kids that an investment in fitness and overall health reaps a lifetime of positive returns.
