Timeout With The Strength Coach with Greg Smith

At age 50, Greg should not still be alive! He is “skin and bones” physically, weighing 65 pounds, soaking wet. He was born with muscular dystrophy and doctors expected him to perish before his 20s. He uses a power wheelchair and his torso is supported by three surgically implanted metal rods attached to his spine. In 2005, he was diagnosed with congestive heart failure and told to plan for just five more years.

Today, he is still flying around the country, enlightening people by teaching his area of expertise: “Inner Strength.” Throughout his life, Greg has had to work harder at everything to be successful. His insights will spark you and your group to seek out and build inner strength for individual and group success!

He is author of the best-selling memoir, On A Roll: Reflections from America’s Wheelchair Dude with the Winning Attitude, and the newly released, Shut Up! Silencing the Negative Voice Within.

Greg created and hosted the nationally syndicated radio talk show, On A Roll – Talk Radio on Life & Disability, a program he developed from one single radio station to over 70 over the span of 14 years on the air. He earned his Bachelor of Arts Degree from the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism at Arizona State University in 1986.
