This class will be taught by Paul Spector, who earned his medical degree at Columbia University College of Physicians & Surgeons. After years of clinical experience, Dr. Spector formed Pantheon and Meaningful Fitness (personalized health organizations designed to assist individuals in attaining their highest level of function). Over the past 15 years, his focus has been on preventive health, behavioral change, motivation, aging, meaningful goal-setting, and how to apply scientific advances to maximize both physical and psychological peak fitness. Paul dedicates his time to helping individuals attain their potential in every aspect of their lives by drawing upon his clinical experience, American Academy of Sports Medicine certified training, ongoing literature review and extensive referral network.

Dr. Spector works with private clients and corporations in New York City and Hudson, NY. He is a regular contributor to The Huffington Post where he reports on the often confusing and contradictory news on health.
