Meet Your Instructor and Course Developer

Greg Mack's deep-rooted experience in the fitness industry shapes the unique perspective of this course. In 1991, he attended the IDEA Personal Training Summit, where Dr. Jeff Bensky highlighted the "baby boomer" generation's desire for personal trainers to align with their doctors. Inspired, Greg became a certified trainer through the American Council of Exercise and founded Physicians Fitness. For over three decades, this company has bridged the gap between the medical community and fitness professionals, despite the challenges posed by differing academic and professional standards.

Greg's vision for Exercise Professional Education was influenced by his time assisting physicians in a sports medicine clinic. He recognized the need for specialized fitness programs for patients recovering from medical conditions. This insight led to the creation of Physicians Fitness and the co-founding of Muscle System Consortia LLC, both dedicated to enhancing the understanding of skeletal muscle's role in overall health.

With a diverse background, including graduation from the US Navy's Nuclear Engineering Program, achieving qualification as a U.S., Navy Diver, and certifications like ACE-Personal Trainer and ACE-Medical Exercise Specialist, Greg has developed the Muscle System Specialist™️ Training and Certification Program. He's an acclaimed educator, having taught various industry courses regarding functional anatomy, exercise mechanics, physical assessment, and more. He is a prolific writer with publications in notable fitness magazines. Greg's dedication to the field was recognized when he received the IDEA International Personal Trainer of the Year Award in 2003 and chaired the IDEA Personal Trainer Committee.
