Fred grew up on the athletic field where his love for sports led him to a life-long interest in movement science. He studied at The College of New Jersey where he received a B.S. in Physical Education and Health. Fred went on to become ACE certified and teach P.E. in the New Jersey public school system and fitness classes at local health clubs.
