Bill Hall

General Manager, Personal Trainer

Certifications

  • NASM Certified Personal Trainer
  • NASM Corrective Exercise Specialist
  • CPR/First Aid Certification

Special Skills/Experience

In high school Bill played soccer, basketball, ran cross country and track. After high school, Bill entered the U.S. Army Artillery and served during Operation Desert Storm. After the Army, he studied psychology at the University of Florida and Health Promotion Management at Marymount University. He found his passion for fitness while training for Iron distance triathlons and began teaching strength and conditioning methods to triathletes. During this time, Bill realized that corrective strategies for compensatory movements found most often in high repetition sports were missing from many training programs. Working with physical therapists and other triathlon coaches, he helped implement Gray Cook’s functional movement screen (FMS) into the yearly program design of his clients and fellow athletes. Since then, Bill has focused on using the FMS with his clients to practice results based fitness programs. Bill’s personal accomplishments include multi-day endurance rides, Ironman USA, marathon training, and triathlons of various distances. Outside of fitness, Bill enjoys fly-fishing for trout in the Blue Ridge mountains and experiencing the outdoors.
