Personal Training Staff
Richard Pohler, BS, CSCS
Richard is an innovator, motivator, and educator with a focus in the field of Exercise Physiology. He serves as the head trainer and manager at Body solutions Voorhees. Richard is a firm believer in credibility. The existence of over 600 certifications on the market today that do not require a trainer to earn a bachelor’s degree is an example of the lack of high standards in the fitness field.
Richard received his bachelor’s degree in Exercise Science
from Rowan University in Glassboro, New Jersey. During his
four years at Rowan he participated in varsity football and had the opportunity to play in the Div III National Championship game in 1999.
Richard began his career with Virtua Health System as an Exercise Specialist. His experience with Virtua provided opportunities to work with a variety of patients suffering from various risk factors to normal, healthy clients who requested safe and effective exercise prescriptions. He feels that bridging the gap between physical therapy and fitness is crucial to the outcome of a successful exercise program. He came to Body Solutions where fitness and physical therapy work together to provide treatment and progressive exercise prescriptions.
Richard competes in natural bodybuilding and walks the talk. He also enjoys spending time with his wife and his golden lab Sofie.
Gavin Segal, CSCS
Gavin received his bachelor’s degree in exercise science and personal training certifications in NSCA (CSCS), ACE, M.A.T. Jumpstart, and Total Body Reactivation (TBR) Levels 1 & 2. He has been a personal trainer for the past 17 years and has helped hundreds of clients achieve their health and fitness goals as well as athletes achieve their maximum performance capabilities.
Gavin’s active life style and previous college football injuries had him searching for a solution to eliminate his chronic pain and aches. His research led him to an innovative method called Total Body Reactivation (TBR). TBR is a natural way to synchronize the body’s muscular system without drugs and/or surgery. He visited a TBR specialist to explore the possibilities and to sample the empowering process. He was astounded by the positive results of just one session and surprised at how well his body reacted. The tremendous results he experienced motivated him to enroll in the complex certification program so he could share these techniques with friends, family members and clients.
The TBR training gives Gavin a deeper understanding of how the body functions and how to put the body into proper alignment. This specialized training works synergistically with his fitness certifications to give his clients the best workout possible.
Today, Gavin is a certified Level Two TBR Specialist and he is helping many people realize the exciting benefits of TBR. All of his clients have shared similar success stories with his proven TBR methods. His goal is to help as many people realize the amazing benefits that their body has to offer.
