Gina’s first book, Fit To Break Par catapulted her to recognition as a golf fitness expert. An appearance on the Golf Channel led to other broadcast media interviews and features in Golf for Women, Golf Digest, Senior Golfer, PGA and Golf magazine. A companion video launched afterwards. After appearances on Fox News with Golf Magazine, Fit To Break Par received a superb rating from Golf Magazine, and was nominated “just right for giving” by American Health Magazine. Educating golfers on her programs at the prestigious Baltusrol Country Club expanded to demonstrations at the PGA Show and a variety of golf fitness seminars. A second golf video, 9 Hole Golf Fitness® followed Fit to Break Par and both were awarded the Seal of Approval from the PGA Partners Club.
A significant step in professional and consumer education development was achieved through GMP Fitnes® production of the G Ball Fitness Series of books and video programs.

As GMP Fitness® grew, partnerships with the chiropractic profession were initiated. Working within this discipline led to the development of educational courses and products tailored for doctors of chiropractic. The research in this arena helped to identify the need for a publication that could help guide chiropractors to form alliances with professional trainers. In this publication, Creating a Fitness & Wellness Profit Center, she guides chiropractors with detailed, step-by-step information and advice on how to help transform any practice into a fitness and wellness profit center that builds business while also helping patients.
