     Bill has been in the fitness business since 1977.  He was trained for musculoskeletal evaluation and rehabilitation at the Exercise Science Center, University of Florida in Gainesville, Florida and was personally trained by the late Arthur Jones, inventor of Nautilus and MedX.  Over the past 35 years, Bill has provided fitness training for thousands.  You may have seen his national TV ads for the Resistance Chair, his features on CNN and Fox News or read his stories in countless newspapers and magazines.  He has worked with The U.S. Navy, which led to the development of his iPhone App: Gym To Go and  Bill has trained major sports teams, athletes and top Hollywood celebrities.  Bill also writes a fitness blog and posts daily fitness tips on Twitter, both are accessible through the Basic Training website.

      Bill was born and raised in the rugged mountain town of Ouray, Colorado where being fit is incidental to the environment.  He spent his youth hiking, competitive skiing and climbing fourteen-thousand foot mountains.

     Bill has owned and developed fitness centers around the world.  Basic Training has been in Scottsdale since 1997 and is owned and operated by Bill and his wife Debbie.  There is no substitute for the decades of Bill’s practical experience.  Today the Crawford’s clients enjoy their dedication to personal service, state-of-the- art equipment, knowledge and motivational skills.
