Victor Gagliardi

Victor is a personal trainer who has studied with Meir Schneider, PhD, LMT and is certified as a Practitioner in the Meir Schneider Method of Self-Healing through Bodywork and Movement.

Vic specializes in functional training, and rehabilitative exercise.  He teaches Natural Vision Improvement classes and offers core conditioning personal sessions (and classes).

Functional training consists of training movement patterns and not just muscles. This includes training postural muscles, improving how your muscles work together, making you aware of muscles you never knew you had, and getting you to use them properly.

Victor looks at the entire kinetic chain in a holistic way to find the reason for the injured joint or muscle. For example, in rehabilitative exercise, he may not treat the area of the specific injury as much as the imbalanced use that caused the injury.  For example, the root cause of a torn rotator cuff could be poor posture, or even a bad toe.

Vic works with clients near his home in the sunny panhandle of Florida.
