HistoryAs the Medical Director of the San Francisco Marathon (SFM), Jeff Shapiro MD, was pushed by race organizers to be a featured speaker. For the next 25 years, Dr. Jeff has entertained and motivated audiences speaking on running/walking, nutrition, medications, supplements, aging, joy and doing good things.
While filming runners with Jack Nelligan, MD, Chief of the Joint Replacement Center in Redwood City, CA, Jeff discovered motions of locomotion causing damage to joints and muscles. With more than one million Americans undergoing joint replacements yearly, Jeff founded Train Well to reduce injury.
After winning athletic and academic awards at Stanford and Yale, Dr. Jeff coaches those seeking peak wellness emphasizing science (not marketing) relating to fitness, nutrition, medications and supplements. Through virtual consults, Dr. Jeff examines fitness, weight control, pill reduction and causes of unhappiness (which releases biochemical sewer chemicals in the body). In the approaching age of doctorless patients, Dr. Jeff will be your guide to monitoring vital signs, conducting physical exams and performing blood tests on your phone.
