He is a devoted husband and father, and has two Golden Retrievers, for which the company is named.
Golden Home Fitness was founded to address an unmet need in the community: In-Home Fitness Training. This need for qualified personal fitness trainers for the home is especially important for those people whose fitness, lifestyle and health needs are not met by the mass produced exercise programs offered by the standard fitness club. Golden Home Fitness clients want to learn how to safely and effectively exercise in their own home using a personalized exercise program. They want to eliminate travel time to the gym and wait times for machines, and they want to control their own schedule. They desire privacy and want to ensure safety and cleanliness. Moreover, Golden Home Fitness clients must be assured of the quality and dedication of their own personal trainer. They want nationally certified professionals who will be able to develop and customize a program to meet their individual needs and time constraints.
Dr. Thorpe has developed a system and company that addresses all these issues and more.
