Fitness model by day, writer by night, health and wellness consultant behind a suit, Levi lives and breathes health. His fitness journey began in High School gymnastics. In 2005 he ranked 7th in the nation on floor and vault despite suffering from a spinal injury that occurred during the competition. Being diagnosed with inoperable anterior spondylolisthesis he was told he had two weeks left to walk before becoming paraplegic. This ignited a relentless journey into learning alternative corrective methods; Neuromuscular, Myofascial, Orthopedic Alignment, Z-Health Applied Neurology, NASM Master Trainer. He not only continues to walk but is completely pain-free and has an incredible passion for bringing others out of pain, into alignment and understanding deeper levels of their potential. With this mindset he works using his own unique method of corrective therapies and is excited to share what he’s discovered with the Elivate Fitness community.
He says, “Training and writing to introduce a corrective mindset is a game changer. I see the body as a collection of unique and individual systems that function as a beautiful whole. When all of these systems are properly aligned it makes for a healthy, thriving, pain free individual. When one is off, all suffer. I love drawing from the rationale of Anatomy and Physiology as well as from creative problem solving, helping people to find their neutral. When you can identify a client’s pains, without them saying a word, it establishes you as a professional, it inspires hope for a solution to their previously unexplained ailments. I feel fortunate clients and businesses seek me out to hear what I have learned about the human body. What a beautiful niche to fill and what an honor to help change lives.”
