Chad Gary, Owner and Head Coach

Chad Gary is the Owner and Head Coach at Ternion Athletics.  

I planned to go to college to pursue orthopedic medicine. I wanted to repair the human body and help people recover from injury. At 22 years old I started a sports medicine & rehab business that allowed me to further my knowledge and understanding of bio-mechanics. Through this experience I realized that a greater opportunity existed; I could use the same knowledge and passion to help people stay healthy and injury-free, rather than stepping in only after injury.

I encourage anyone looking to make a positive change in their life to come train with us. It’s never too late to get in great shape, make new friends, and develop one’s athletic ability. At Ternion Athletics we put every member in a position to be better for themselves, their loved ones, and their community.

Certifications:

  • USA Weightlifting Level 1 Coach
  • CrossFit Certified Football Instructor
