physical therapist portola hintonGregory has taken the road of happy coincidence to his seven years with Pacific THERx. Having just been laid off his first job out of college in biotech, Gregory didn’t like working in the lab and sitting at a desk all day. He enjoyed playing sports and thought that helping people recover from injury could be rewarding. As fate would have it, a friend who Gregory had just seen the week before, sat next to a Pacific THERx physical therapist on a plane.  This one degree of separation eventually led to Gregory being hired at Pacific THERx - as a personal trainer.

He picked the right track and still loves working with people and helping them get better physically. Even though Gregory opted for personal training over the physical therapist route, he loves what he has learned from the therapists throughout the years. He uses that knowledge with his personal training clients on a daily basis.

From golfers and baseball players, to active folks fresh off an injury and others getting into the gym for the first time and just beginning to learn how to move their bodies - each of these clients is a natural fit for Gregory’s strengths.

Exceptionally patient with people who are doing this for the first time, Gregory takes his time to make sure a client is moving correctly and has a strong foundation before pushing them too hard. He wants each person to understand the movements completely and have a better understanding of which muscles they are using so they can continue exercising and moving through their daily life - injury free.

Gregory enjoys the day to day interactions he has with his clients. Hearing about the activities they are able to do - now that they are exercising - makes his day. Everyone’s goal is just a little different and there are many different outcomes he loves to see; when a person can go through their daily routine a little better and with a bit less pain, when someone hasn’t been able to run for a while and is able to run again, when a client is able to accomplish a century ride, and those times, often the most rewarding, teaching someone how to do the simple things - get out of a chair pain-free. Everyone is different. "Seeing all my clients make progress in some way is really the best part of the job."

Outside work, Gregory loves to play both golf and baseball. Travelling to Spain, Italy, Germany, and France - these are at the top of his list of places to go. While in the vicinity, stopping off for a round of golf in Ireland or Scotland would really make the trip. What you may not know about Gregory is that he has 70+ pairs of shoes - so make sure to check out which ones he’s sporting!
