Biography

About Me

GTS was born from the passion and my commitment to change. I wanted to combine the use of physiotherapy, rehabilitation & lifestyle to help others enhance and optimize their life. From a young age, I was diagnosed with ADHD, ADD, depression, and bipolar disorder; all diseases which were supplemented with Ritalin, Adderall, and Prozac.  Years later, I discovered that food allergies were the culprit—all of my so-called “illnesses” were easily treatable with diet and exercise. My issues were coupled with excruciating pain from my scoliosis and a muscular system that always leans towards the tight & immobile side. This lead to shoulder impingement, achilles tendonitis, tennis elbow, and multiple other painful issues all related to my poor mobility. Countless doctors and physical therapists related this to my scoliosis and told me there was nothing I could do.

This was the beginning of my path that defined Grant Training Systems.
In 2004 I graduated from the University of Tampa with a degree in Sports Medicine & Athletic Training (sports physiotherapy). I hold a Masters in Human Performance and Injury Prevention from the California University of Pennsylvania. During my undergraduate & postgraduate degree, I worked with numerous collegiate and professional sports teams. I was the assistant to Pat Etcheberry, one of the most famous strength coaches for professional tennis. Together we prepared tennis legends like Justine Henin, Martina Hingis, James Blake, the Brian Brothers and Victoria Azarenka for Grand Slam tournaments. After moving to Arizona, I worked with Victoria Azarenka, Marshawn Lynch, Adrian Peterson, Kyle Brady, Kelly Walsh, Misty May, and Jamarcus Russel.

Ever thought about moving to Egypt? I did. And I did it. In 2008, I assisted its tennis federation in building one of the best junior players in the country. Five years later, after traveling around the world as the physio and strength coach for junior tennis player Karim Hossam, he had an impressive record of no significant injuries and an international ranking of 11th in the world. My experience in Egypt led me to learn Arabic and to participate in the Egyptian Revolution. In a defining moment that I was under a bridge with bullets and rocks flying over my head that I decided to leave and create my reality.

Today I run two offices in Stuttgart and Karlsruhe, focused on integrating the importance of lifestyle into modern-day rehabilitation & physiotherapy. The implementation of mobility and stretching, along with cold therapy, breathing techniques, mental training, and mindfulness has been able to reverse scoliosis, poor posture, and chronic shoulder tendonitis/plantar fasciitis without the use of medication.

I serve as an adjunct lecturer for the University of Tubingen’s Sports Science Program where I teach my own curriculum on Movement, Mobility, Rehabilitation, and Lifestyle.  For more information about my practices, check out gtsgermany on Instagram and Grant Training Systems on Youtube.
