"My name is John Guers. I grew up in Shenandoah, Pa., where I got into sports, which ultimately led me (like a lot of people in this field) to my love of weight training. I began reading everything I could about training, particularly powerlifting. I idolized Louie Simmons and Westside Barbell growing up.
I decided to pursue the degree of Exercise Science at East Stroudsburg University. This is where I began to love physiology just as much exercise. I completed my degree and decided to stay for my Master's in Exercise Science. After completion, I was asked to stick around and teach some courses as a temporary instructor. While at ESU, I got a chance to work with several sports teams and coordinated the United States Weightlifting Sports Performance Certification, which was never offered there before.
I was accepted into the Applied Physiology Doctoral program at the University of Delaware in the Fall of 2012 and am currently working towards that goal."
