Neal Smith

BS, CSCS, CFSC, Founder of Body By Design

Neal was born and raised in Georgia, grew up in  East Cobb and played  an array of sports growing up while finding success in the sport of wrestling.  After high school, he continued exercising and soon found himself fascinated by the bodies ability to have dramatic physical changes through simple food and exercise modifications. He attended Georgia Southern University  and entered into the Exercise Science program with the intention of becoming a physical therapist. After using his final semester to intern at an outpatient clinic assisting in patient rehab, he then realized that he can use his new knowledge to help to people in a preventative fashion rather than "after the fact".  

After opting out of physical therapy school he decided to work in larger box gyms to officially begin his career in the field.  Over the years he immersed himself in the field and his passion was fueled by seeing and hearing the difference he was able to make in peoples lives. Encompassing far more than fitness goals, the impact extended and rippled through his clients daily life in more ways than he imagined. To make an impact on a greater level he then decided to open Body By Design Fitness Studio.  The idea was to create an encouraging and motivating atmosphere coupled with a team of coaches that share the same passion in making a greater impact.  His energy is contagious, his positivity is unwavering, and he strives to always bring the best out in everyone around him.

He keeps up with the latest findings and current literature regarding the best practices to help all of the members at Body By Design reach their goals. This includes networking and meeting with numerous chiropractors, physical therapists, and physicians in the area to help leverage all information and perspectives to best approach any limitations, unique goals, and needs for the members at BBD.   Neals expertise is extensive and include: post rehab, muscular development, posture/muscle imbalance, weight loss, sports conditioning and core training.

Hobbies:  Fan of all Atlanta Sports, traveling, snowboarding, he is a certified scuba diver, spending time with friends and family
