About Robert HaltBob was a talented athlete, who grew up in the small northern Pennsylvania town of Sharon. Bob enjoyed playing all types of sports but his passion was football. He went to work at the local steel mill after high school to help support his family. God had a different purpose for Bob’s life other than the steel mill. After 15 years of hard labor in the steel industry, Bob left his childhood town and moved to Gulf Shores, AL. He lived and worked there for 3 years before moving to Fredericksburg, VA to be with his girlfriend, and now wife, Amara in 2008. Fredericksburg is where Bob began thinking about becoming a skilled massage therapist. Bob attended Heritage Institute College in Manassas, VA where he earned an Associate Degree in Occupational Studies (AOS) in Therapeutic Massage. He began his internship in 2009 in a chiropractor’s office and was hired after completing the internship. While working with the chiropractor, Bob utilized his education and experience to provide the chiropractic practice with skilled physical therapy techniques for numerous clients. His main area of expertise was utilizing soft tissue tools and therapeutic and medical massage techniques to ensure patient well-being and relief. Bob continued his massage skills and techniques after he left to become a private consultant and now works at Green Fitness and Wellness. He has helped many clients who have suffered from frozen shoulders, knee replacements, back and neck pains, all types of ailments during this time. His mission is to promote health and wellness, help relieve pain after surgeries and help provide alternatives to prevent surgeries when that is an option.

One of the best life choicesEllen B.,
Going to Green Fitness has been one of my best life choices. After sitting down with me and discussing my goals, the equipment I have to exercise at home with, and my many physical impairments - including both shoulders being frozen, a frozen hip, Type 1 IDDM, Celiac Disease and thyroid disease, Garrett developed a plan to help me improve my strength, flexibility, endurance and diabetes control. The exercises are imaginative which makes working out fun and almost all of them can be done in my home. I stay interested and motivated in exercising because the workouts are so dynamic. I have been in several exercise programs, and had other personal trainers and Green Fitness definitely is miles above them all. I would recommend Green Fitness to anyone who seriously wants to have fun and improve their physical well-being.
One of the highlights of my weekSharon S.,
I used to be an avid runner, but years behind a desk, a busy schedule, and health issues put my workouts on the back burner. Two years ago after a surgery that left me walking with some difficulty, I decided to start working out with Garrett in the hope that he could improve my mobility. Since then, working out has become one of the highlights of my week. I can now do three miles on the treadmill, and I ran recently for the first time in years. Garrett’s competence and engaging personality make working out fun. Whether you have rehab issues or just want to get back to taking better care of yourself, I highly recommend Green Fitness as the place to go. Thanks, Garrett.
