Noted for creating some of the finest, strongest and most injury-free bodies in the biz, Neil is one of the most sought after fitness experts in the nation. His innovative methods and techniques have been featured world-wide in every form of media.
Neil is a highly successful 18 year veteran personal trainer, gym owner, writer, consultant, talk-radio & T.V. personality. He figures (conservatively) that he has personally conducted over 50,000 one-on-one personal training sessions. This does not count the thousands of people he has trained in groups. During this time he achieved a degree in Exercise Science from Utah State University and has attained more than 13 professional certifications. He is the official team trainer for the Utah Jazz Dancers, University of Utah Dancers and Utah Blaze Dancers. He credits his years of medical training (physical therapy and cardiac rehab) for his unique understanding of the human body.
Neil's nationally registered and trademarked GPP Fitness concept has helped thousands of people world-wide improve their health, their fitness and their lifestyle.
A few snapshots, numbers on a scale, jobs, or paragraphs do not make a person. I am not my bio just as you are not yours. In six months from now I will not be the same person I am today and neither will you.
But for the sake of letting you know a little of who I am and why I am part of the GPP Staff I have put together a few moments of my past which have helped bring me to where I am at the moment…
In 2008 I was running everyday preparing to participate in the Moab Half Marathon. It snowed a lot that year and I wasn’t running as much as I needed so I joined a gym. There I met Neil Anderson and began my training as a personal trainer which morphed into what I do today.
For a year I studied under Neil while obtaining additional certifications. I conducted several personal training sessions, children’s workouts, and adult workouts. I learned what it means to be Optimally Healthy and how physical fitness fits into that.
Although I am not what I do, I love working at GPP because we are blindly focused on Optimal Health. Obtaining optimal health does not occur in a vacuum. It is not simply becoming the thinnest, trimmest, strongest, (etc.) you. It can not be achieved by merely walking in our doors or following our site. That is the first step of many more complicated steps.
Optimal health comes with interaction and finding balance across all aspects of life including the physical. Interaction is paramount. It is why I love GPP and what I do. Who I am and what I do changes as I interact with you, but that’s what happens in life. Each of us changes, the cool thing about trying to write a bio, or deciding to become healthy is we get to decide what the next paragraph in our bios will be, ultimately, how we are going to turn out.
Optimal Health is about balance. It's about the ability to achieve our goals while activily participating and thriving as great parents, spouses, neighbors, friends, and professionals. After 20 years in athletics, 8 years as a personal trainer, and 5 years as a coach, it's GPP that makes sense. It's GPP that works. GPP is balance, the way to reaching the otherwise unthinkable without taking away from the valuable parts of our lives. As an Ironman I see families fall apart while one member trains for their race. As a GPP'er I see families training together for races and being each others best supporters! GPP is about family, community, and doing amazing things together, otherwise thought impossible. Ultra marathons, Ironmans, you name it. With the absolute minimal amount of time training, all based on the GPP workouts, anyone can do whatever they want without giving up on what's most important.
GPP is community. GPP is integrity. GPP is losing your story and forging a new one, through sweat, tears, vomit, loss of pride, and new perspective. What was once thought unreachable becomes achievable. GPP is surrounding yourself with others that strive daily, to do more, be more, feel more, face fears and try more. Test our limits. Test our fears. And do it balanced, with our families and with our friends, with honor and integrity every day.
