Rande Bryzelak founded Nutrifitness to provide a new class of health coaching. Aware of the nutritional fads and lack of standards in the training and exercise field, Rande has committed himself to providing clients with integrated nutrition and fitness counseling by university-trained specialists in applied physiology, exercise, biochemistry and nutrition. Rande was a champion skater in his childhood, but as he sought to regain his strength after a severe, unrelated accident in his early 20’s, he realized that people are at risk from bad nutrition and supplement information, and from untrained "trainers." His experience and recovery challenges inspired him to fill a need for seriously trained and focused nutrition and fitness experts.

Douglas Brunt, author of the New York Times bestsellers Ghosts of Manhattan and The Means, has enjoyed critical praise for his third novel, Trophy Son. Set against the backdrop of the professional tennis world, Trophy Son follows prodigy Anton Stratis from an isolated childhood of grueling practice under the eye of his overbearing father to his dramatic rise through the competitive world of professional tennis. Brunt notes: “The main thrust of the novel explores the sacrifices made for such an intense life, and how our culture increasingly requires early specializing in athletics to succeed. It's a very narrow way to grow up and while I use tennis here, the message of the book applies … [to] ... kids specializing in any sport or other activity.” Trophy Son, navigating the landscape of youth sports culture and the cut-throat professional tennis world, reveals uncomfortable truths about early specialization, parenting, the pressure to succeed, and the cost of early excellence in our achievement-obsessed society. A Philadelphia native, Brunt lives in New York with his wife, Megyn Kelly, and their three children.
