Vaibhav (“V”) Maurya, M.D. is a physician and an Atlanta certified personal trainer. Dr. Maurya received his undergraduate degree in biology at Georgia Tech, then went on to complete his medical training at the Medical College of Georgia.
After finishing a residency in pediatrics, V spent 3 years in clinical practice as a general pediatrician, during which he experienced significant burnout. This forced him to take a hiatus during which he rekindled his passion for exercise.
Fitness brought vitality and joy back into Dr. Maurya’s life, so much so that he decided to make it into a full-time commitment. He now works to inspire others as a certified personal fitness trainer in Atlanta.
By implementing a comprehensive knowledge of human anatomy and physiology, as well as an understanding of disease processes, V helps his clients reach their full physical potential safely and effectively. He has a level academic credibility and scientific rigor that is rare among Atlanta personal trainers.
Dr. Maurya is certified through the National Council for Certified Personal Trainers and the American Council of Exercise. He has experience in both group and individual fitness instruction, training athletic clients, working with elderly clients, coaching clients on bodybuilding, and getting clients in shape for their first 5K. He has given talks at retirement homes and weight loss clinics.
Dr. Maurya has ample experience working with clients with disabilities and medical conditions, including amputees, paraplegics, clients with knee, shoulder, hip, back, foot, or other orthopedic conditions, clients with neurological conditions, and clients with various cardiovascular limitations.
The complementary initial consultation and training session includes a medical, nutritional, and fitness evaluation. Body measurements, including weight, BMI, and body fat percentage, are also assessed. After an evaluation of current fitness level and a discussion of client goals, Dr. Maurya designs an exercise plan unique to each individual.
Using his medical background, Dr. Maurya, or simply “V”, tailors his fitness programs to fit his clients’ goals and abilities. V understands that the body works as an integrated unit. Therefore, exercises are designed to engage multiple muscle groups simultaneously. This method maximizes calorie-burn, challenges the cardiovascular system, increases exercise efficiency, stimulates muscle development, improves balance, and helps with coordination.
V’s Atlanta clients are exposed to a variety of training modalities, including body weight exercises, free weights, kettlebells, resistance bands, cable pulleys, and machines. Training styles are modified to suit client preferences, prevent boredom, and maximize gains. High-intensity interval training, bodybuilding, core strengthening, stretching, and calisthenics are among the many methods V uses to get his clients to their full physical potential.
