WALLY'S BIO

BIOGRAPHY

As the owner of BODY BY WALLY, I’ve had the pleasure of being able to positively influence lives in the area of fitness and nutrition for decades, and I continuously invest time and effort to stay current on the science of health and fitness. My objective is to reach as many people as possible with science backed, proven methodologies for improving health and fitness, regardless of their life stage and starting point. 


Through my many years of training, I have practiced and trained in the Martial Arts, Bodybuilding, Weightlifting, ISOMETRICS, NEGATIVE training, and Calisthenics. Isometrics and Negative Training are proven methodologies for all fitness levels; from professional athletes to people in therapy or recovery, as I have evidenced personally with my clients in the past, and of which I have practiced for most of my adult life. I take years of scientifically proven exercise techniques and incorporate them with today’s methods, always working to find the ‘perfect blend’ of personalization so each client gets the most from his or her training. And to be sure I am teaching exercise movements and nutrition correctly, I refer to both my experience, and SPORTS SCIENCE/MEDICINE CORPORATIONS. For Nutrition, I leverage research with THE MAYO CLINIC.



It all started when I began exercising in the 4th through 6th grade before school each morning; encouraged by my father who was a 3 time AAU Gold Medalist on the Flying Rings in the 1940’s, and a two-time U.S Amputee Golf Champion. At the age of 19, I took up Weightlifting (and bodybuilding later on), my father’s Calisthenics, Martial Arts, and have virtually not stopped ever since.  


CIRCUIT TRAINING is a world-wide known method to train, and in 1976 I had the privilege of being trained under Gary S. who worked directly beside Dr. Arthur Jones who invented and introduced the entire worlds’ eye towards the Nautilus Circuit Training System. Thereafter, Dr. Jones' equipment & system became a popular method of training especially with athletes the world over - even to this day. 


JACK LALANNE, "the godfather of fitness", was one of my inspirations, even from my youth; I have studied and trained his methods for many years. Jacks methods are used even today and many of his feats of muscular endurance have yet to be accomplished by anyone.  Other fitness disciplines include: 


DYNAMIC TENSION (now called Isometrics - incredible overall strength and core development) – a lost but essential art of exercise of which I have studied over many decades; made world-famous in the 1950's & '60's by Charles Atlas. 


BRUCE LEE - need I even comment? I never studied  Jeet Kune Do; but I did and still do, train many of his exercises, especially his Isometrics.


MARTIAL ARTS: My disciplines include: Shotokan, Uechi-ryu, and Commando Krav Maga. My Uechi-rye instructor Rick Martin, was the only American to ever win the Okinawan Champion title in 1995. 


In around 1978 I met a nutritionist, Mike D., who set me on a path of ‘eating to win’. Since 1980 I have read virtually every label on food I have  purchased at the grocery store - watching carefully what I eats to stay fit (yes, I do cheat here and there).

High Intensity Interval Training for Women. Weight-loss, Cardio & Bodyweight Training for Women. Core Conditioning. Corrective Exercise. Neuromuscular Stretching. Integrated Injury Prevention.

SOME OF MY FAVORITE QUOTES:

>  The gym is  not a social club for the fit; it's a training ground for everyone. 

>   You can get everything in life you want, if you just help enough people get, what they want. - Zig Ziglar

>   It's not who you are that holds you back, it’s who you think you’re not. - Anonymous  

>  It is not just getting through the problems in life, it is “WHAT HAVE YOU ‘BECOME’” through it all. Are you angry for all that you had to go through, or are you more understanding of things and of others? Are you bitter or BETTER? 

>  All the water in all the oceans cannot sink a ship unless it gets in it.  Nor can all the troubles in the world sink you, unless you let it inside of you.

>   If you are always too busy, then you either imposed it upon yourself, or you let others impose it on you!    

>  Yesterday is just a cancelled check, Tomorrow is just a promissory note. Today is all of the cash that you have, so you’d better learn how to spend it wisely.

>   For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through Him (John 3:17).
