Where to start...

Iverson Gandy, III

Son / Brother / Web Developer / Fitness Expert / Life Coach

Iverson is a fitness expert in Washington, DC, with experience managing fitness teams and hundreds of thousands of dollars in training revenue. His experience and credentials in plyometrics, senior fitness, prenatal and postpartum exercise, women's strength and condition, olympic weightlifting, self-defense, boxing, and most importantly -- corrective exercise -- inform his mindful but challenging approach.

Iverson is fueled by his passion for understanding the nuances of the human mind; as it relates to fitness and beyond. He considers himself a ‘forever student,’ eager to both build on his academic foundations in electrical engineering and computer science, and stay in tune with the latest fitness-related science based research through continued coursework.

His hunger for knowledge and determination to turn information into action has contributed to his most recent success at Gold's Gym, where he led a life changing and award-winning fitness team for a very diverse DC population.

However, fitness is only a piece of a much larger picture to Iverson. Behavioral characteristics such as discipline, determination, perseverance,  individual accountability, self-esteem, and consistency are very near and dear to Iverson, as these qualities were instilled in him at a young age by the strong men and women in his family; particularly on the home front from his father, Iverson Jr. in Tuskegee, AL and his grandfather, Iverson Jr. in Baton Rouge, LA.
