ABOUT ME

CREATING A HEALTHIER SOCIETY

Hi there, I'm Grant Kennedy, and I've been immersed in the world of personal training here in the Bay Area since 2014. My journey to this point wasn't exactly straightforward – back in college, I was wandering without a clear path until I stumbled upon my first anatomy class. It was there, amidst the cadavers and the intricacies of the human body, that something inside me clicked. The human body and mind are utterly fascinating  – resilient, intricate, capable of remarkable transformations. What's more, there's no cheating it – what we feed it and how we move it directly impacts how we feel and how we look. Prioritizing sleep, nutrition, and exercise gives us an incredible amount of control over our well-being. When I prioritize my health, I've noticed a ripple effect in every aspect of my life – improved mood, focus, energy, and motivation. But it's a two-way street; when I neglect my routine, everything else seems to suffer too. I understand the gym can feel daunting for many, but for me, it's been a sanctuary amidst life's chaos, providing a sense of control over my own well-being. My hope is to share that sense of empowerment with you too.

ABOUT THE TRAINING

STRONG BODIES AND MINDS

Gyms emerged in the 1970s, primarily fueled by the bodybuilding community, and their exercise techniques shaped the early fitness techniques and culture. While bodybuilding methods can be effective for muscle gain, caution should be exercised when adopting them as models for overall health. Our understanding of exercise science and nutrition has evolved significantly since then. Today, sedentary lifestyles and unhealthy dietary choices pose challenges to maintaining fitness. Prolonged sitting leads to muscle tightness and postural imbalances, impacting overall movement patterns. These issues cannot be addressed through isolated exercises. Instead, focus should be on realigning the body before engaging in exercise. Training methods like bodybuilding or CrossFit may exacerbate these problems and increase the risk of injury. Taking the time to get the body’s movement restored and learning proper exercise technique is the only way to avoid injury and have long lasting success.  I continue to work with physical therapists and study as much as I can to make sure my training methods are the most effective. If you have some tightness or postural issues, and you're looking to get into shape I am confident we will be a good fit!

Services

All of the training begins with an orientation session where we'll cover movement assessments, goals, and any existing injuries or tightness. These assessments will help us understand your starting point and customize a program that fits your unique needs and lifestyle. Depending on your goals, we'll also set up ways to track your progress and ensure you're moving in the right direction. It's all about crafting a plan that works for you, addressing any challenges head-on, and getting you where you want to be. Let's dive in and make this journey one of growth and achievement!
