Gerald J Joseph

The Gerald J Joseph personal strength-training and flexibility program is perfect for someone just starting his or her fitness journey, someone recovering from an injury, or an elite athlete who has years of fitness under his or her belt. The strength and body aesthetic gains are only part of the benefits that a person will experience. There are also many internal benefits, such as improved cardiovascular health/conditioning, decrease in chronic pain and inflammation, and lower blood pressure.

My personal exercise program follows guidelines established by the American College of Sports Medicine. These powerful guidelines promote and integrate scientific research, education, practical applications of sports medicine, and exercise science to maintain and enhance physical performance, fitness, health, and quality of life. I’ve augmented these guidelines with years of my own research and scientific development at the Rancho Santa Fe Medical Center.


With my consumers and patients in mind, my goal is to design a safely stimulate the growth of skeletal muscle and change the aesthetics of the body, in such ways as:

  • Reducing body fat
  • Reduce Blood Pressure
  • Tightening up abdominal muscles
  • Firm up the legs buttocks and calves
  • Developing core strength
  • Firm up chest, back and arms
  • Improve back strength

This is normally achieved within a minimum time period (20-60 minutes), and can be done at home, the office, and/or outdoors with minimum equipment. It’s also safe for children. I achieve this by combining both the use of slow and fast movement in a variety of intensity during the exercise program. It’s quit easy and fun to do.

My personal exercise program recognizes that the body needs cardiovascular conditioning, strength training, flexibility and rest to stimulate the body to improve its condition. Over time, a small amount of resistance is added to counteract the body’s adaptive nature. For these reasons I recommend twice-a-week workouts which in most cases is sufficient to improve health outcomes and change the body aesthetically.

What are the benefits of this program? One may expect to experience benefits from my exercise program in a relatively short period of time. Numerous studies have proven that the strength gains, and therefore the functional benefits, begin to occur as soon as the resistance reaches a meaningful level.

This program has been successfully utilized to rehabilitate and strengthen individuals with many common conditions such as obesity, diabetes, osteoporosis, and sarcopenia. It has also been used to counteract conditions such as myopathy of chronic heart failure, hemiplegia from strokes, cerebral palsy, and hypertension.

My personal exercise program works at sculpting the body and bringing back a youthful aesthetic to the body in a very short period of time while also improving the internal systems of the body.
