Grant
Grant Weaver graduated from Illinois State University with an Exercise Science degree in 2012. He has been working as a personal trainer since then, training a wide variety of clientele ranging from teenage and professional athletes to stay at home moms and business owners. He is an amateur natural powerlifter and bodybuilder and a certified nutritionist, and most recently competed in bodybuilding at the annual Arnold Sports Classic in Ohio, the largest amateur bodybuilding competition in the world. Grant currently trains his clients out of HiFi Personal Fitness, and encourages all his clients to step outside their comfort zone and push themselves to do things they once would have never even thought possible, like running a marathon or entering a lifting competition. Grant has been training The Chopping Block’s owner and CEO, Shelley Young, for the past 4 years and enjoys finding ways to make healthy eating more fun and enjoyable than the average bodybuilder diet.
