Bill Thorpe, MD, PhD – President and Founder
Golden Home Fitness was founded by Bill Thorpe in 2015 to help others conquer the fitness challenges he himself overcame. Being a full–time Physician and Biomedical Engineer while helping to raise a family, Bill was short on time and high on stress. Soon the health, fitness and vitality he enjoyed as a college gymnast was replaced by weight gain, lethargy and poor health. Losing 50 pounds after hiring a personal trainer, Bill had an epiphany. He decided to open a fitness studio model that was much more comprehensive, convenient and attractive than any existing gym.
Golden Home Fitness is the result of Bill’s personal insight and subsequent mission– to empower people to live healthier lives. It incorporates a holistic approach to wellness. You can get personal training, physical therapy, nutritional counseling and a massage all under one roof. You can also take group training, fitness, personal defense or yoga classes in the Golden Home Fitness studio. In addition, we can come to your home or condominium, or provide you with online virtual training. Eliminating the challenges Bill and many of us face, Golden Home Fitness makes consistent and personal life–changing progress accessible to everyone.
Bill has taken on several entrepreneurial ventures and start-ups in the medical, engineering and educational fields. Golden Home Fitness’s immediate success and consistent positive feedback after launching in the Boston area, allowed him to spread his exceptional one-of-a-kind fitness studio beyond Massachusetts. Our clients are living proof that focusing on optimal health and fitness leads to a better quality of life. Bill still continues to progress with the help of his trainers, and feels better at 62 than he did before his transformation. Golden Home Fitness is named after his two Golden Retrievers, who have been part of his motivation because he knows motivation is key.
