Golf Fitness Specialist and Running Performance Coach Growing up in rural New Jersey, Parker’s life was always encompassed by sport. It started with gymnastics at an early age and continued through college playing soccer and lacrosse. Following college, Parker found there was a void in his life that the professional world was not fulfilling. It was the combination of being out of the competitive sports world and not doing work he believed in, which lead to him move to Colorado and become a personal trainer. Parker is the former Program Director and Performance Coach of The Aspen Clinic in Colorado. While there, he was the strength and conditioning coach for the Aspen Valley Ski & Snowboard Olympic Development Team in addition to working extensively one-on-one with sport specific athletes with an emphasis on golf, running, and high school athletes. In Parker’s mind, fitness is nothing more than the client’s ability to do what they want without pain and without restrictions. Since the client’s goals will define their “fitness”, Parker can work with a breadth of individuals ranging from the athlete who wants to run a sub 5 minute mile to the weekend warrior who wants to play a round of 18 without pain. To help clients achieve such a wide variety of goals, Parker is constantly striving to learn more and challenge his current assumptions. “The culture at PFS is all about customer first, personal and professional growth, and community which is why I’m so excited to be a part of this team!
