Jorgen Persson was born last century (1955 A.D.) in Sweden, and competed as a teenager rather successfully on National and International levels in both individual and team sports. He immigrated to America in 1979 at age 23 for a collegiate athletic scholarship in track & field. In a labor of love for knowledge he then completed over eight years of college at Cal State University of Los Angeles accumulating over 350 units of academic coursework while working as a massage therapist for amateur, professional and Olympic athletes.

The following list only includes elite athletes from boxing. His complete resume includes over a hundred professional and Olympic athletes from various sports, as well as quality minded individuals from outside the sport arenas. Naturally, the intensity of your conditioning and therapy would only be the same if you inspired to the same level of performance. However, the quality and integrity of the service will be the same regardless of your aspirations. The lesson learned from training professionals is not to train crazy hard, but rather to train smart, effectively and foremost safely. Your optimum program is based upon your subjective “wants” and your objectively and scientifically assessed needs – integrating both health and fitness.
