The Mission

We live in a culture that perpetuates unhealthy perceptions of the human body and overall health and wellness. We are surrounded by restrictive diets, get-fit-quick pills, fad workouts, and other “solutions” that promise fast results, but are, ultimately, unsafe and unsustainable. Ground Up Training takes a different approach towards health and fitness.

We work with clients from the ground up to set realistic and manageable goals, then create a plan consisting of healthy habits and progressive training programs to help them reach their goals safely and sustainably.

my journey

Guy Nanni - Fitness Coach

My interests in fitness started out when I was in my senior year of high school. I was your typical angry, overweight teen and one day I looked at the scale and I was almost 200 lbs. I had finally has enough and decided to do something about it, so I bought my self a cheap weight set from Sears and it turned into the first step of many that lead me to where I am today. Sometime after that I found a local martial arts school where I learned that I had a love of not only fitness, but also martial arts.


Through martial arts I learned their was more to health and fitness than just lifting weights. I leaned about movement, functionality, and how much the mind can effect your health. I started teaching classes and I realized  how much I enjoyed having an impact on people's lives and helping them understand and utilize their body's potential. I decided that I wanted to help others who found themselves with similar struggles to my own, so I obtained my training certification, quit a full time job I hated, and went all in to bettering the lives of others through health and fitness. 

I help my clients obtain the fitness goals they desire, as well as feel more confident in themselves, by focusing on helping them not only move better, but also to better understand their bodies.
