ABOUT : MEET THE TRAINERS
DOUG FIORANELLI, MA
Owner, Head Trainer and Certified Fascial Stretch Specialist
Having been a trainer since 2001, Doug has years of experience in strength and conditioning and athletic rehabilitation. He specializes in working with first responders and athletes ranging from middle school to professionals including MMA, NFL, and Olympic athletes.
In graduate school, Doug spent much of his time in the Exercise Physiology Lab researching the different effects various training equipment has on muscle activation, strength, and endurance. This earned him a Master’s degree in Kinesiology and his thesis was published in the “Journal of Strength and Conditioning Research.”
In the summer of 2008, he accomplished his lifelong dream and opened RISE ABOVE ® where he dedicates his time to helping others achieve their strength and conditioning goals.
Doug specializes in customizing progressive programs to suit the needs of each individual to maximize their athletic potential, reduce the risk of injury, and achieve success both in and out of the gym.
