Coaching the explosive triple spiral Goata movement pattern which by default preserves joints, keeps the spine safe, and molds you into a bulletproof athlete, free from the infamous muscle pulls and repetitive stress injuries of the modern day. GOATA is the key to athletic dominance over your counterparts.
The Story: After suffering over 40 back episodes in his 20’s, Coach Gil began to search everywhere for answers to preventing injuries before they happen. This is the opposite of the medical community strategy which preaches to help you AFTER you get hurt. Walking away from a medical model is the key to avoiding unexplained injuries for life. While Michael Jordan “MJ” was flying around the air for 2 decades making millions of dollars, Coach Gil only 2 years younger, would go to a sit down office job and his back would injure itself doing the simplest of things like sneezing... Decoding the 4 secrets to an explosive injury resistant body was a painstaking 20 year process which consisted of reading and participating in hundreds of movement modalities and their associated reference materials. In the end, the characteristics of a GOATA fit body can be chunked down to 4 basic concepts based on gravity, natural human structure, and postural movement design (think vitruvian man). It is the developmental protocols on how the body secures itself from injury that will prove the rest wrong (never get hurt in the first place). The new priority or plan is for good regenerative health which is achieved through elite locomotive movement & for it to be strategic and planned in order for you to enjoy your life with a regenerative healing system and avoiding the Gym Fit one which is associated with metal joint replacement, chronic pain and absolute structural disaster. 2008 Egoscue PAS Level One (Postural Assessment Specialist).

Coach Gary started as an explosive exercise coach who understood body mechanics, and in a search for more knowledge found Coach Gil and the Goata movement system and since then has learned how to implement GOATA into his teachings. Coach Gary has trained countless athletes Super Athletes in that time, and has proven time and again to help these athletes achieve D1 Scholarships and become hugely successful. Some of these athletes have gone pro as well, like Darrel Williams and GOATA Joe Este, and although the system is fairly new it looks as if more and more of Coach Gary’s athletes will end up in pro leagues in the near future, since many are currently big time college players at this time enjoying full rides and a free education from renowned schools like LSU.

Coach Graz is a native of Philadelphia, PA. He graduated from Philadelphia University where he completed his BS in Exercise Sciences. For over 20 years, coach “Graz” has been involved in multisport as both a coach and All American Athlete where he has enjoyed helping many newbies and seasoned triathletes across the finish line for all distances.
Coach Graz officially started his Specialized Fitness Training business in Philadelphia, PA in 2014 after completing a comprehensive 600 hour Degree from National Personal Training Institute of Philadelphia. Soon afterwards, he completed his diploma in Corrective Exercise Specializations from The National Academy of Sports Medicine in Philadelphia, PA and sequentially his Youth Exercise Specialization under the same governing body. It was in these years that he developed a deeper understanding of the body, and a growing passion for working with young athletes.
Following a lecture on The Spinal Engine Theory by David Weck, he became profoundly interested in Sports Biomechanics which led him to San Diego to study directly under Davids mentorship. This further heightened his desire to seek out deeper knowledge of specific sports techniques and training systems.
Unable to satisfy an unquenchable thirst for knowledge on this particular subject, he sought out world class instruction through Coach Gill and Coach Gary at GLS Locomotive Systems where in February 2019, he was part of humble beginnings being among the first in the Country to complete the GOATA Movement Systems Training Qualification in New Orleans, LA.
