    img

    William Smith is the President, CEO and Founder of the INTRAFITT Corporation; established in California in 1992. Since its origin, William has been directly responsible for the development, growth, and profitability of the corporation and continues in this multifaceted role today.
     
    With aspirations of pursuing sports nutrition and conditioning as a young man, William elected to follow an autodidactic methodology of study in the health sciences  after graduating from Eastern Vocational Technical Institute (in Essex Maryland) where he studied the design and fabrication of race car chassis. At seventeen years old William entered and won his first local bodybuilding competition and went on to win another 24 bodybuilding championships over his sixteen year competitive tenure. During that time, William had the privilege of working with some of the best athletes in the world, teaching them how to eat and train for their respective sports and competitions.
     
    William’s interest in competing and winning championship titles began to wane as his interest in the scientific discipline of diet and exercise neuroendocrinology intensified.   This particular scientific elective was initially the result of his younger brother’s diagnoses and longtime struggle with Type I Diabetes. William’s determination to research and develop a diet and exercise related curriculum that would improve his brother’s ability to play sports and live a normal life (while also enabling him to achieve optimal levels of health, fitness and performance, minimize the use of insulin and reduce his risk of developing further cardiovascular related diseases and complications) would eventually become his obsession and is known today as the INTRAFITT Individualized Nutrition and Exercise Program
     
    Today William continues his role as the president, CEO and founder of INTRAFITT Enterprises. Now residing in Charlotte, NC. William also owns and operates the only allied health care teaching facility (The INTRAFITT Total Health & Fitness Center) in the Carolinas where he and his onsite staff of certified INTRAFITT Technicians instruct clients from all walks of life on how to eat and exercise to achieve all of their desired health and fitness goals!
