Will is a Biology major from High Point, NC. His specialties are: conditioning, resistance training, stability training, and hypertrophy training. His training philosophy is, "Very similar to the principles of the ACE fitness model in that one must first establish stability and flexibility. Then move towards mobility with functional movements, and improve those functional movements through resistance training. Cardiorespiratory exercise, although not favored by most people, is also a crucial aspect to any training program and should be implemented accordingly."
