Gary Collins, MS was raised in the High Desert at the basin of the Sierra Nevada mountain range in a remote part of California. Gary enjoyed, and considers himself lucky to have grown up in a very small town experiencing fishing, hunting, and anything outdoors from a very young age.
He has been involved in organized sports, nutrition, and fitness for almost four decades. He is also an active follower and teacher of the self-reliant/survivalist/off the grid lifestyle.
After an exciting career in military intelligence Collins worked for the U.S. State Department, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and U.S. Food and Drug Administration as a Special Agent.
His career took him around the world and gave him a unique perspective on not only how the United States, but the world is affected by our food, drug and healthcare policies.
It can be safely said no one in the health and fitness industry has the inside knowledge and background that Collins has. He is a hybrid of a high intensity health expert, self sufficiency advocate and an investigator rolled into one.
Gary now lives off-the-grid part of the year in a remote area of NE Washington State, and the other part of year exploring in his travel trailer with his trusty black lab Barney.
