Dr. Bret Emery – Health Psychologist for Behavioral Medicine

0

Dr. Bret Emery entered the field of Behavioral Medicine with an athletic background and a specialty in physical conditioning. Beginning his cycling career at the age of 14, he went on to live at the Olympic Training Center and represent the United States in international races across America and Europe. For over a decade, Dr. Emery excelled at cycling. After retiring from professional cycling in 1991, Dr. Emery focused his energy toward assisting others in their physical conditioning endeavors.

Dr. Emery began by addressing the training, nutritional, hormonal and motivational aspects of Atlanta Braves baseball players, professional golfers, members of Lance Armstrong’s U.S. Cycling Team, and the NHL Florida Panthers hockey team. He then turned his focus towards assisting individuals in South Florida at his custom designed private training facility. Signing a partnership with Microsoft corporation, Dr. Emery began providing weight management services to the employees and spouses working for the software company. In 2006, Dr. Emery expanded the Corporation to Alpharetta, Georgia, where he continues to advance the science of physical conditioning and weight reduction. He currently resides in Georgia with his wife and daughter.

Dr. Emery’s dedication and passion are evident in his work with his wife, Natalie. Natalie suffered a traumatic spinal cord injury, which doctors believed would leave her paralyzed from the waist down. Dr. Emery met Natalie in graduate school and was immediately intrigued by her drive and intense motivation to rebuild her body and become strong again. Together, they set out to achieve the first of many goals. Dr. Emery designed specific exercise and nutrition plans for Natalie and assisted her with every step toward rebuilding her body.

Through research focused on methods of measuring muscle and fat tissue, he developed the Physio-Graph system of body composition measurement.

The Physio-Graph provides instant feedback about how the human body is changing before the changes are evident in the mirror – demonstrating the immediate results of exercise and nutritional efforts. The Physio-Graph provided the feedback necessary for Natalie to build lean muscle in her arms and remove body fat from her legs.

With each passing year, Natalie has continued to develop strength while improving her physique. She once again enjoys many physical activities. Natalie is a walking example of Dr. Emery’s expertise. She is sought after for public speaking engagements and has been featured in many publications.

Dr. Emery’s expertise is also apparent in his work with individuals who wish to build a strong and fit physique. He is able to accurately measure a person’s current physical composition and create a specific approach to exercise and nutrition that will change the person’s body composition. Whether you are interested in reducing your overall weight, or you would like to shape and tone a particular area of your body Dr. Emery has the program that is right for you.

One popular program for men is the Chest Reconstruction Program that transforms the muscle to fat ratio of the chest and abdomen. The entire process, from the Physio-Graph measurement to the nutrition and exercise design, progress tracking, and goal achievement will be performed in one location, at Emery Behavioral Medicine.

Dr. Emery’s Philosophy

As a doctor specializing in health related issues, it is imperative for him to demonstrate competence by having a healthy and fit body. The fact that people seek health and physical conditioning advice from “professionals” who do not possess the ability to transform their own bodies amazes him. “I certainly would not take my car to a person who was not able to fix their own car, so why would I trust my health or physical conditioning goals to a person who does not appear to have control over his or her own body?”
