Vitality Coach Bill Troy


To Our Age In Marketplace Friends & Family,

If we could have simply designed someone with the perfect blend of experience, life values, training and education, and personality to be our Vitality Coach it would have been Bill Troy.  Coach Bill Troy is a very dear personal friend and advisor that has changed my life in ways that I hope many of you will soon experience.

I met Bill Troy at a point in my life when a lack of focus on my fitness and wellbeing was truly affecting my comfort and confidence.  I had gained some extra weight and the arthritis that developed from my childhood obsession with basketball began to challenge my youthful mobility.

Coach Bill Troy saw my struggle and my desire to change, and he took me in under his wings leading me on a path towards optimum physical and physioliogical condition.  Along the way, he shared with me many of his personal life experiences and I continue to be amazed with the colorful threads that make up the fabric of Bill Troy.

I encourage all of you to follow his guidance and allow him to better your life, whether you are seeling post cardiac rehab, suffering from mobility issues, or are seeking to attain a higher level of physcial fitness.
