David Weck

David WeckDavid Weck is an important innovator in the fitness industry. His influence has reached millions of people across the globe – from the world’s most elite athletes and fitness experts to children, elderly and everyday exercisers who want to look and feel their best.

David’s pursuit to explore and discover better training methods and fitness training tools is relentless. In 1999, he invented the BOSU® Balance Trainer – the ubiquitous “blue half ball” you see everywhere – to aid in his recovery from a lower back injury. Some of David’s other creations include Rolling Ropes®, the BOSU® Ballast® Ball, the Quick Hands Bola TrainerTM and Goliath’s ShoelaceTM.

Success has enabled David to devote many years to a comprehensive study of human movement. He has amassed thousands of hours studying a wide range of disciplines (i.e. Tai Chi & Oriental Medicine, Feldenkrais, Rolfing, Martial Arts & Western Boxing among others), and he is constantly studying athletic movements with video analysis and personal exploration of his methods and techniques. He has worked with clients of all abilities up to elite athletes. His work with sprinter Tyson Gay was the subject of a feature article in Men’s Health magazine.

Although he has been in the fitness industry for 20 years, in some respects David feels he is just getting started. “After spending so much time these past several years focused primarily in the pursuit of study, exploration and discovery, I am eager to now teach all that I know.” David’s latest training method called CoreFISTTM: Fascially Integrated Strength TrainingTM is currently taught privately and will launch soon with exercise training and programs for fitness professionals and consumers.

David is passionate about helping educate the world with better physical education and fitness. He lives in San Diego where he enjoys helping raise two amazing children and living an active and healthy lifestyle. David attended Williams College in Williamstown, Massachusetts, where he played football, ran track and graduated with academic honors.
