About My Business:


DAVID GRISAFFI has been a sports enthusiast his entire life. Since watching Monday Night Football at age nine, he knew his destiny was in the sporting arena. Although he participated in football, basketball, wrestling, swimming, tennis, and baseball, he excelled at wrestling. His love for the sport taught him about nutrition, supplementation, and work ethic. During his high school and college years, very little information was available about sports conditioning and sports nutrition. This led him to majoring in physical education. When his college wrestling days ended, Bellarmine Preparatory High School hired David as its head wrestling coach. He also taught strength training for two years at the school. Then the independent bug hit him, and he took the International Sports Sciences Association (ISSA) Personal Training Certification and became a certified personal trainer. David landed his dream job of becoming a conditioning coach for former four-time world champion boxer Greg Haugen. Yet David knew he had more to learn and was directed to the CHEK Institute in southern California. He was honored to be selected to participate in the Corrective High Performance Exercise Kinesiologist certification program. In this intense program, he learned from one of the foremost experts in the conditioning field, Paul Chek. The certification program revolved around the dynamics of kinesiology,physiology, functional anatomy, and mind-body-spirit relationships. He advanced to Level II where he learned about physical assessment, posture analysis, gait analysis, primal movement patterns, length-tension testing, and range-ofmotion testing. He is currently a Level II practitioner. David is also certified by the CHEK Institute as a Golf Biomechanic. This program taught him more about the relationship between how muscles and muscle groups affect the golf swing, and how to improve the swing. He has worked with professional golfer Michael Putnam of Tacoma, Washington. In the winter of 2002 David became one of the first Nutrition and Lifestyle Coaches from the CHEK institute. This program was developed to help practitioners deal with the nutritional and lifestyle needs of their clients, and teaches how to prevent symptoms of disease and stress through diet, exercise, and stress management. David is currently a Level II Nutrition and Lifestyle Coach. Early in 2005 David was one of the first to be certified by Ori Hofmekler, the author of the popular diet book, The Warrior Diet. He is currently a Level II practitioner through the Warrior Diet Certification Program on Controlled Fatigue Training and Fat Loss. David works closely with boxing promoter Brian Halquist of Halquist Productions. David began working with boxers Greg Haugen and heavyweight Joe Hipp. His solid work with them led to being hired by Kenny Ellis, Middleweight Champion; Chad VanSikel, cruiserweight 18-1-2 and former amateur standout;and Walter Wright. David manages these professional athletes’ daily workout routines, diet programs, and stress management routines based on each athlete’s individual needs.
