Greg's Story


Greg Doucette has been lifting heavy things from as early as 7 years young when he first caught the iron itch. He would pick up things over his head and smash them on the ground, just like the Olympic weightlifters in the Olympics he saw on television
.
Greg started training alongside his dad for several years with nothing but cement blocks and steel rods. When Greg was 10, his dad got injured and stopped training altogether. But by then, Greg had fallen in love with lifting heavy things and getting stronger. So he started sneaking into the basement to train by himself when his parents — both schoolteachers — taught during the day.

When Greg turned 13, he discovered the sport of bodybuilding while sitting on the couch and watching an episode of That’s Incredible! that featured a 13-year old competing in bodybuilding. Greg had already been training for several years by then and knew he would someday be on a stage like that, dominating with his sculpted physique that he worked hard to build.

Greg has balanced both strength and physique pursuits, competing on and off in both powerlifting and bodybuilding since his teenage years and well into his forties. Along the way, Greg set national and world records, won national and international competitions, and earned his IFBB pro bodybuilding card in 2012

Greg is not only a decorated athlete and bodybuilder but also a student of sports science. After spending 6 years studying the science of human anatomy and movement, he earned both his Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in kinesiology.

Today, Greg draws from his formal education and his 2+ decades of powerlifting and bodybuilding experience to coach people from around the world. From the newcomer to the IFBB pro, he is passionate about helping people achieve lasting results and build habits that will keep them healthy for a lifetime. He has been coaching clients — both in person and online — in contest prep, general fitness, powerlifting, and nutrition for more than a decade and has worked with thousands of people.

Recently, Greg has expanded his influence beyond his one-on-one clients to YouTube where he has reached more than 380,000 subscribers and his videos have more than 50 million views. Greg works around the clock to entertain his audience, to dispel common myths perpetuated by the fitness industry, and to help people achieve their best physiques.
