Dr. Chet Zelasko
Scientist. Speaker. Author.

My strength is in my ability to explain complex scientific health concepts and translate them IMG_3043 (1)into simple lifestyle changes that my readers and listeners can use to improve their health. I also have a simple philosophy: if people read or hear what I have to say about health and aren’t convinced in a few minutes that I know what I’m talking about, shame on me. It doesn’t mean they agree with me, but they should recognize that I’m knowledgeable in my areas of expertise.

My Professional Credentials

I have a PhD and Master of Arts in Exercise Physiology and Health Education from Michigan State University (1987 and 1984), and a Bachelor of Science in Physical Education from Canisius College (1982). I completed a teaching and research post-doctoral fellowship at Ball State University; in the two years at Ball State, I was voted one of the Top 10 Teachers at the University. I’m certified by the American College of Sports Medicine as a Health and Fitness Specialist, have taught in ACSM certification workshops throughout the U.S., and belong to the American Society of Nutrition. I’ve conducted research and been published in peer-reviewed journals.

My Experience

In the 1990s, I was an Associate Professor and Department Chair in the Health and Wellness Department at Buffalo State College, part of the State University of New York. At the same time, I managed the weight-loss program for an HMO in the Western New York area.

In 1998, I left academia to become the chief research scientist for the Better Life Institute in Grand Rapids, Michigan, where I developed weight-management programs, a cleansing and detoxification program, and various fitness programs.

I’ve written over 2,800 e-mail messages and newsletters and presented seminars to large and small groups all over North America and the Caribbean. I’ve also hosted over 500 episodes of a radio show on WGVU-FM, the Grand Rapids NPR affiliate. Straight Talk on Health, a weekly radio program on a wide range of health topics, airs Sundays at 7:30 a.m. and again at 6:00 p.m. Eastern Time on WGVU-FM. You can listen live over the Internet by going to and clicking on “Listen Live” at the top.

In 2008, I formed my own company: Chet Zelasko PhD LLC. As a health and fitness consultant, I provide health information based on the most recent research and deliver it in a way that’s easy to understand. Whether in person during seminars, in audio recordings, or in the written word, I make sense out of the health news people hear so they can make better health choices and achieve optimal health.

What I Do for Fun

I have a great family. Paula and I celebrated our 26th anniversary this year. We have a grown son, Matthew, whom I was lucky enough to acquire when he was 21—I missed all the really hard years. He and his wife, Kerri, live in Charleston, South Carolina, and we wish they were closer. My father-in-law is 93 and lives very close to us here in Grand Rapids. My parents both died way too young, and that’s part of what motivates me to help people be healthier.

I enjoy running for fitness and have run five marathons plus dozens of 10Ks. In summer, we garden—my specialty is tomatoes, and Paula’s in charge of flowers. For entertainment, Paula and I enjoy movies, blues music, and as you might expect, watching Dancing with the Stars.

But I’ll be honest—helping people be healthier is equally my idea of fun, and nothing charges me up as much as hearing that I’ve made a difference in someone’s life.

Greg Drolet
Speaker. Author. Trainer. Coach.

I am focused on inspiring healthy leadership and a healthy lifestyle. My purpose is to be a resource for those individuals intentionally seeking to achieve peak performance and significance in their life. I write about personal growth, leadership, healthy lifestyles and achieving REAL success.

My objective is to be an on-going resource and provide content that has meaning and relevance in your life. If you are striving for world class performance, creating a healthy lifestyle, and are interested in gaining a better understanding of healthy leadership at a personal and professional level, then my team will help you achieve your goals.

We all have the intention of getting healthier in our physical, financial and in our relationships. Yet we don’t always intentionally take the necessary actions to accomplish the mission. Breaking through our personal roadblocks utilizing an intentional personal development program is the difference maker. It’s how we grow ourselves and organizations. It’s how we impact our lives and the lives of those around us. But, as you also know, personal and professional leadership cannot be an idea we simply talk about; taking healthy action is the key.

I am a Founding Partner on the John Maxwell Team. As a John Maxwell Certified Coach, Teacher and Speaker, I offer workshops, seminars, keynote speaking, and coaching, aiding your personal and professional growth through study and practical application of John Maxwell’s proven leadership methods. Working together, we can move you and/or your team or organization in the direction to reach your desired goals.

It has been my lifelong quest to make a difference in the lives of others by creating healthy leaders through a balanced approach to success. I will help you develop an individualized plan in line with your vision in any area of life that you endeavor to conquer.

The challenge for each of us is to create a lifestyle that will allow our dreams, goals, passions and talents to live in harmony. This dynamic collaboration is the key to living life to the fullest and becoming the best version of ourselves that we were meant to be. Dream big, choose to act, and you will receive the rewards of your endeavors.

I am looking forward to assisting you on your journey to becoming a successful and healthy leader.

About Me

I was raised in Southern California, choosing to accept adult responsibility but not grow up! Life is too short not to have fun and I believe it is important to have fun, make money and make a difference!

In my early 20’s I was fortunate to have the opportunity to work in the entertainment industry as a roadie for Elvis Presley. I was able to travel throughout the United States, see amazing sites and meet spectacular people. The education I received during these years was invaluable.

I spent the next 20 years working with Fortune 500 companies as a sales consultant, selling over $100 million dollars in goods and services, developed successful sales teams and taught leadership at the executive level.

My wife Christie and I have been married for 31 years and we have one son.

In my free time I like road bike cycling, scuba diving, photography and writing.
