Neufit was a sponsor at the 2018 seminar and founder Garrett Salpeter shares his experience using this refined technology in the field of physical rehabilitation and with people who have neurological and neurodegenerative issues. Try to make it to the end of the video to hear how seminar attendees responded to their Neufit sessions throughout the event weekend!

NeuFit has been generating breakthroughs in the world of physical rehabilitation. Originally, their approach caught on with dramatic results in athletes.
For example, NeuFit technology was able to help a local high school athlete recover 4 months ahead of schedule from ACL surgery, and get her back on the field in time to lead her team to victory in the State Softball Championship. An NFL football player used NeuFit to recover when a spinal disc injury was supposed to keep him out of training camp – and he was able to participate on Day 1.
As these stories began to spread, more people started to ask what NeuFit is and how it works. The answer is that it uses a new, patent-pending form of electrical stimulation, which has unique effects on the nervous system. Paired with specific protocols from Functional Neurology, this combination was among the first to take a neurological approach to orthopedic problems.
Because of the neurological nature of the work, NeuFit has now attracted dozens of people with neurological and neurodegenerative issues. Thankfully, the approach has been able to help those people as well.
One example of this is found in the story of a woman named Amy. In her early 20’s, Amy fell off a horse and broke her neck. The resulting spinal cord injury left her paralyzed from the waist down, and she was unable to move her legs for 25 years. She started with NeuFit, and in just the first 5 weeks she was able to feel new sensations and experience some new muscle twitches. After two years of consistent work, she is walking with a walker and continues making progress.
Patients with neurodegenerative disease, including M.S., have been seeing the same types of neurological changes that Amy experienced. They have noticed reductions in pain and spasms, enhanced strength and movement ability, and greater quality of life.
About Garrett Salpeter:
Known as “The Health Engineer,” Garrett has taken his education in Physics (BS) and Engineering (MSE) and applied it into a system for making the human body better. His journey started when he picked up ice hockey as a boy. It was a game he loved, but for which he had little natural aptitude. After several years “skating by,” he decided to delve deeply into the world of strength and conditioning to try to give himself a chance to play at a higher level. Unfortunately, what was popular at the time did not work for him — and he kept searching.
In dealing with some injury problems, he learned about the paramount importance of the nervous system, and saw the connections to how the same neurological principles could be applied to fitness. The neurological approach worked, and he never looked back. He became determined to learn as much as possible about how to affect the nervous system. To that end, he spent hundreds of hours in self-study, mentored under several leading-edge practitioners, tested many of his theories on himself and others, and even went back to school for a Ph.D. program in Neuroscience (from which he took a leave of absence to launch the Neubie device).
In 2009, he opened his first facility in Austin, TX to start sharing these methods with his community. This has grown into what we now know as NeuFit, which combines an advanced understanding of physiology with the best practices from diverse training and therapeutic practices, and constantly pushes these processes by using technology to accelerate them further. Since that first day, he has worked with people of all ages and in almost all situations, including athletes from MLB, the NFL, the NHL, the NBA, UFC, Olympics, NCAA, and more, helping them get out of pain, improve performance, sometimes avoid surgeries, and live life at a higher level.
He lives in Austin, Texas and is ecstatically in love with his wife, Briana, and their two daughters, Gwenny and Gemma.
