Craig Short


“I coach people in improving upon their Health Span by helping people to integrate principles of health and wellness in a way that is manageable and appropriate for each individual. I focus on providing people with the proper strategies, tools, and guidance to help them reach their fitness goals”.

I have a Doctoral level degree and have worked in multiple settings including outpatient, inpatient and acute rehab physical therapy. 

In working in different settings, I determined that the “traditional” model of physical therapy was just not something for me. 

As a provider I look to bridge the gap between traditional physical therapy and personal training. Having a medical background allows me to help you to meet your health goals and provide exercise programming with accommodations for special populations and previous injuries.

My experience as a trainer and Physical Therapist has allowed me to work with a vast demographic ranging from

performance training for a High School Athletes, to Acute Rehab and gait training for amputees. 

I enjoy the challenge that comes with working with people of varying abilities and capabilities. 

Your training and exercise protocol will be custom tailored to your goals, promoted by motivational strategies that best fit your personality.
