Jorge Teller met Claudia while working at a health club in New York City in 2008. When he first began working with her, she weighed over 400 lbs and mentionied to him that she had recently undergone bariatric surgery. Unsure of how to best train her, he consulted her surgeon and asked to learn as much as he could about the surgery. Shortly thereafter, he partnered with Claudia to create The Kinesis Centre.
Jorge has a B.S. in Kinesiology from Pennsylvania State University. He started working with weight loss surgical clients following their surgery over 10 years ago. He has spoken with some of the top surgeons in the country to better understand bariatric surgery and meld it with his knowledge of exercise physiology to provide educational courses like Training the Bariatric Client.
Currently an officer in the United States Coast Guard, Jorge has utilized his training as an instructor to create online educational courses that include the most up-to-date information and research on weight loss surgery.
He has contributed articles for ObesityHelp and was a speaker at the 2017 ObesityHelp National Conference in Long Beach, CA.
