The OsteoStrong® program is like no other. It is specially designed to safely strengthen the foundation of your body, your skeletal system. It does this using a process called osteogenic loading. In only 10 minutes, once a week, you develop strength, improved bone density, better posture, balance, and athletic performance, with reduced joint and back pain.

I’m excited to bring the science of OsteoStrong® to Clayton, Missouri. I have a technical background in the US Marine Corps and US Navy, and have been a manager in corporate America since the year 2000.
My health and fitness background spans nearly a lifetime, but more recently has included various components now referred to as “biohacking”, which is the use of science and technology to trigger desired behaviors or changes in our biology in the most direct or efficient way.
OsteoStrong® came to my attention unexpectedly at a Tony Robbins seminar where guest speaker and CEO Kyle Zagrodsky spoke passionately of the compelling science and research of osteogenic loading. To say I was intrigued is an understatement!
I believe that everyone deserves to live a healthy and vibrant life, regardless of age. I also believe that the purpose of my life is to leave people better than I found them. The most exciting part of OsteoStrong® for me is the potential I have to fulfill this purpose with regards to playing a role in helping others attain new levels of personal freedom by unleashing significant increases in functional strength and performance, decrease pain, or both. This is why I joined the OsteoStrong® family, and why I sincerely look forward to sharing it with you.

“Wolff’s Law, developed by the German anatomist and surgeon Julius Wolff (1836–1902) in the 19th century, states that bone in a healthy person or animal will adapt to the forces (i.e. loads) under which it is placed.”
We employ Wolff’s Law in a safe and effective program using a proprietary Robotic Musculoskeletal Development System (RMDS) to create impact emulation. Essentially, we provide the advantages of high impact pressure without the disadvantages associated with high impact. OsteoStrong® is not a gym, diet, supplement, pharmaceutical, or medical treatment.
