Gray's previous clinical work has given him extensive exposure to various strength and therapeutic models and their effects on function and health. This enables him to work with both the general population that wants to stay fit while maintaining lifestyle, and the adaptive population who may have mobility restrictions necessitating specific adaptive training methods. 

Gray's passion for physical culture expands beyond barbell strength training and kettlebell to the martial arts, including competitive grappling with four NAGA Championships. His studies in clubbells, indian clubs, yoga, pilates, team sports such as basketball and chasing around his 1-year-old son, all add to his active lifestyle.

His MOTTO: Do squats and eat your veggies.
