Exercise Specialist

 

     David has worked as an Exercise Specialist at The Carlisle MedGym since its inception in 2014, and has helped people of all ages move better, feel better, live better, and perform better. His love for training in the gym began as a high school and college baseball player where he learned the value of training his own body for athletic performance. Since then, he has grown to love training others to become their healthiest, perform their best, and learn the value of a proper training program.

     David earned his bachelor’s degree in Sport & Exercise Science from DeSales University in 2013. During that time, he helped design off-season and in-season training programs for the DeSales University baseball team, as well as interning with the strength & conditioning coaches at Lehigh University to work with varsity athletes at Lehigh. Since college David has spent time working in the Physical Therapy setting prior to his time as one of the Exercise Specialists at The Carlisle MedGym.

Bryan Reed
Exercise Specialist

 

Brian has worked at the MedGym since the summer of 2018. His passion for exercise began in high school where he played basketball. From then on, he knew he wanted to help others excel in exercise by having them move better, feel better, and live better. 

 

Brian received his bachelor's degree in Kinesiology Exercise Science from Pennsylvania State University in 2011. After college, Brian honed his skills teaching multiple large group fitness classes as well as teaching Pilates on Reformers.

Chris Zinn
Exercise Specialist & Nutrition Coach

 

Chris has been interested in health and fitness since he was young, playing basketball and track. Progressing from a general interest in sports to a fitness enthusiast, he was consumed by everything fitness and health-related. His love for health and fitness started to shift from a focus on improving himself to improving others when he helped his dad lose 40 pounds simply by employing a regular exercise routine.

 

Chris realized that he could apply everything he was learning to help people live better, more efficient lives; he switched majors and graduated from Shippensburg University in 2019 with a bachelor's in Exercise Science. After interning at The Carlisle Med Gym he was hired as a member of the Med Gym training staff and is excited to help people live healthier and happier lives.

In 2020, Chris added Nutrition Coaching to his tool belt when he became certified as a Precision Nutrition Level 1 coach. He currently runs The Med Gym's Nutrition Coaching program where he helps people learn to have a healthy relationship with food and line up their eating with their goals.
