Health and wellness have always played an important role in Steven Gratkins life. Having first served in the US Marine Corps for seven years, he then obtained his Bachelor’s degree in Kinesiology from Eastern Illinois University and a Master’s degree in exercise physiology from Illinois State University. Prior to joining the Canyon Ranch exercise physiology team in 2013, Steven was a personal trainer, group fitness instructor and fitness club owner.

In his role at Canyon Ranch, Steven creates customized training programs for guests with a focus on endurance training. A certified strength and conditioning specialist, Steven enjoys teaching guests about different ways to optimize their body and grow strong. With his focused background and positive attitude, he strives to help guests accomplish new fitness and movement goals.

His years as a Marine taught Steven the importance of a strong and healthy body and he continues to stay active by running, hiking, and bicycling. All of that activity also works up quite an appetite, and he counts cooking and trying new restaurants with his wife among his favorite pastimes as well.
