My Story

Discover Your Path to Peak Performance with Dynamic Performance Fitness
Meet John Wheeler, the dedicated owner and trainer behind Dynamic Performance Fitness. With a lifelong passion for sports and fitness, John's journey is a remarkable blend of military discipline, personal perseverance, and an unwavering commitment to helping others achieve their health and fitness goals.

A Life Fueled by Passion and Dedication
John's love for competition and fitness was nurtured in the vibrant atmosphere of South Florida, where he learned the value of hard work and determination. He then took his passion to a higher level by serving in the United States Marine Corps. During his military career, he not only honed his physical prowess but also dabbled in sports, martial arts, and a wide array of fitness disciplines.

John's path took a significant turn when he met his beautiful wife, Tera, in West Virginia. Their love story has now spanned a decade, with nine of those years spent in the joyful journey of marriage. Together, they are raising their energetic 5-year-old son, Maddox here in Clayton, North Carolina. The move from West Virginia to Clayton in 2019 marked the start of a new chapter, and it's a decision they haven't looked back on.

Turning Setbacks into Strength
John's dedication to the Marines was unparalleled, but a series of injuries eventually forced him to be medically retired in 2015. Multiple surgeries, pain, restrictions, and excuses could have easily derailed his commitment to health and fitness, but John's resolute spirit refused to waver. This adversity was the catalyst for what would become Dynamic Performance Fitness.
With the support of an extensive network of veterans, non-profits, and other organizations, including Semper Fi & America's Fund, Boot Campaign, Warrior Wellness Solutions, and Catch A Lift Fund, John discovered his true purpose. He explored deep into the world of functional fitness, the intricate fascia network within our bodies, and the significance of proper alignment and a multidimensional approach to achieving ultimate results with reduced pain and enhanced functionality.

A Passion Turned Mission
Inspired by this knowledge and driven by a desire to give back, John made it his mission to help adolescent athletes, veterans, and members of his community on their journeys to better health and fitness. His identity was restored, his sense of service restored, and his purpose in life became abundantly clear.
John took the initiative to expand his expertise by enrolling in a Bachelor of Science program in Exercise and Sports Science. He also acquired the prestigious National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM) Certified Personal Trainer Certification (CPT), Corrective Exercise Specialization (CES), Stretching & Flexibility Coach (SFC), Performance Enhancement Specialist (PES) & Certified Sports Nutrition Coach (CSNC). His pursuit of excellence continues as he currently works toward his final NASM Credential of Behavioral Change Specialist (BCS) and his Certified Strength & Conditioning Specialist (CSCS) from the National Strength & Conditioning Association (NSCA).
