Dr. Chad Waterbury graduated from the the nation’s #1 ranked Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT) program at the University of Southern California (USC), where he currently teaches in the Biokinesiology and Physical Therapy graduate program. He is also a neurophysiologist and author whose unique training methods are used by a wide range of athletes, bodybuilders, figure models, and fitness enthusiasts of all ages and from all walks of life.
He was the director of strength and conditioning at the Rickson Gracie International Jiu Jitsu Center in West Los Angeles and now works with professional athletes, celebrities and non-athletes one-on-one. He contributes to many magazines such as Men’s Health, Men’s Fitness, Fight! and the t-nation.com bodybuilding Web site, and he’s the author of Huge in a Hurry and Muscle Revolution. He’s also lectured for fitness organizations such as the National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA) and Perform Better, and gives personal seminars on a limited basis.
Chad has a master’s degree in physiology from the University of Arizona, where his focus on the neurophysiology of human movement and performance led him to make radical changes in the way he trains competitive athletes as well as nonathletic clients. His workouts are now shorter and faster, producing superior results in strength, power, and muscular development, while at the same time inducing less fatigue and allowing for shorter recovery periods between workouts.
A native of Illinois, he currently lives in Santa Monica, California.
