Shortly after I did 1,006 PUSH-UPS in 1:03:48 hr.
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 over 5 decades, and 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, Isometric & Negative training, and Calisthenics.
My 'recent' name to fame (to me anyway LOL) was when I did 1,006 Push-ups in under 64 min. on my birthday 2020.
Isometric 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 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.
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 my late 20's I met a nutritionist, Mike D., who set me on a path of ‘eating to win’. Since then I've 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).
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.
Each and everyday I am thankful for the influence my father had on me in keeping my body fit. And my mother was on top of all our Nutrition needs and keeping us away from processed food as much as possible.
I am blessed to be able to bring to you a lifetime of fitness and the honor of changing people's lives for the better.
HEALTH & WELLNESS CERTIFICATIONS: I am Professionally Certified through the NATIONAL ACADEMY of SPORTS MEDICINE, an industry leader in Fitness Certifications. CERTIFIED in: CPT & FNS (Fitness Nutrition Specialist); High Intensity Interval Training for Women; Weight-loss; Cardio & Bodyweight Training for Women; Core Conditioning; Corrective Exercise; Neuromuscular Stretching; Integrated Injury Prevention; Cardiorespiratory Training for Sports Performance; Maximum Interval Training; Optimum Performance Training for Seniors; Balance Training; Reactive & Core Training; Integrated Injury Prevention; and Understanding Hypertension and Heart Disease; plus many other disciplines.
Nicknamed the "SILVER EAGLE"; due to "way past" retirement age and a reputation for doing 1,000 Push-up on his 68th birthday.
With my exercising for over 5 decades, I humbly believe we're one of the best; as we have long-time practical experience, and endeavor to help and guide each and every person to have the knowledge they need, so that they can carry that experience and information with them for the rest of their lives.
I established my Training Studio having over 5 decades of Fitness Experience. It was time to leave the world of work as I knew it and professionally do what I know best, love, and have preached to friends, relatives, and strangers most of my adult life - and to stop the madness of so much misinformation on fitness. My passion is to inspire and motivate your as I endeavor to directly change the "Quality of Life" of those committed to a healthier self and find that spark inside you that will make a significant change in your overall health.
Because I truly believe that if a person has been blessed with a gift, that before God they MUST give back to society by teaching/training others what they have learned.
I am Professionally Certified through the NATIONAL ACADEMY of SPORTS MEDICINE, an industry leader in Fitness Certifications.
A Fitness program is only as good as the people behind it, and we humbly believe ours is like no other. I will not only show you proper technique, but be there for you in a personal & caring manner - encouraging, and with skill & passion. You'll become partners in the impossible, and together we’ll break records, tear down walls and unlock the extraordinary - because every step you'll be driven by someone that sincerely cares about you and in reaching your goals.
When Choosing a Professional Fitness Trainer, the deciding factor should be their experience, and that experience must transcend the norm in the fitness industry. And to add to that, the trainer/coach MUST have the ability to communicate that experience to the individual, or time and money will be wasted. WE DELIVER!
When you exercise, MAKE EVERY REPETITION COUNT, AS THOUGH THAT 1 REP IS THE ONE & ONLY ONE YOUR WILL DO, AND THAT "IT" IS THE REP THAT WILL CHANGE YOU. MAKE EACH ONE COUNT EVERY SINGLE TIME!
For it is not all about the total repetitions you do, but how EFFECTIVE it is. No need to spend hours exercising (unless a competitive athlete); it is always best to MAXIMIZE THE TIME you spend working out, by doing what is proven to be the best per Sports-Science.
I've had the pleasure of being able to influence lives in the area of Fitness & Nutrition for over 5 DECADES, a life-experience only imagined by most. MY PASSION is my PURPOSE; and a person's Quality of Life is truly important to me - as I know it most certainly is for you. We strive to "Make the Impossible Possible" - to help you attain a happier, healthier, more confident, and vibrant life - to help you become a better version of yourself.
[To our knowledge, not one Trainer in the CSRA knows or teaches this]
Through of practice, I have also pretty much mastered the art of NEGATIVE & ISOMETRIC training, the true foundation of strength - used by Professional Athletes & Martial Art Masters World-wide (one of the main reasons Bruce Lee was known for his amazing strength, even at only around 137 lbs.) - also what Physical Therapists use (but on a totally different level and purpose).
This type training is virtually a lost art, it is how we have helped so many people that hardly ever did a Push-up or Pull-up, to doing hundreds in a short workout.
I have also followed the teachings of CHARLES ATLAS who created "DYNAMIC TENSION" in the 1950's, now typically called, Isometrics). JACK LaLANNE ("the godfather of fitness" as named by Arnold Schwarzenegger). And of course, BRUCE LEE'S exercise routines. And as mentioned earlier, my father Wally Sr. who was a 3 time AAU Gold Medalist on the Flying Rings, and 2 time U.S. Amputee Golf Champion. These are/were my heroes, mentors, and inspiration.
Here is one piece of advice that almost nobody does; and you don't have to spend 2-3 hours in the gym - that's insanity (unless training for a big event). Here's one of my secrets: other than consistency, intensity, proper form and diet:
When I’m going to do a set, I am aware of every muscle group in my mind...visualizing that area; I’ve already put myself in that training position for my muscles to do the work, I don't do the work and expect my body to get in position and then perform the exercise. I am mentally and physically aware to engage/contract my muscles fully in order to get the most effect out of each and every single repetition.
Machines predetermine where your muscles should go, instead of your muscles going where they SHOULD. On a free bar you can always adjust your positioning so it's an accurate and precise natural movement.
