Dr. Gonzalez joined our USA Women’s Foil Team staff prior to the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games. He treated the entire team with professional care and trust. Since most Olympic athletes do not receive sponsorship, Dr. Gonzalez used much of his own resources pro bono for myself and my teammates. I did not make the team, but the 2008 Women’s Olympic Foil Team that did go to Beijing won an unprecedented silver medal in large part because of Dr. Gonzalez’s abilities to keep them all whole and healthy after many years of repetitive injuries.
I count Dr. Gonzalez among my closest allies and friends. I only wish I lived in Miami!

Dr. Lorenzo Gonzalez is simply the best. I have never once gone to him with a problem he could not fix or a goal he didn’t help me reach. He takes the time to tailor your training program to your sport as well as your specific abilities and requirements, and he always goes the extra mile to make sure you have everything you need to succeed.”

From our silver medalist Olympians who have worked with Dr. Gonzalez extensively:
“Dr. Lorenzo Gonzalez is simply the best person to work with if you want to go from being a good to a great fencer! His approach to training and recovery is unparalleled! I highly recommend that every competitive athlete work with him if they want to bring their results to the next level!”
By Keeth Smart, Team Silver Medalist 2008 Beijing Olympics
After the 2004 Olympics, I suffered from numerous fencing related injuries and I didn’t think I would be able to fence again. Dr. Lorenzo Gonzalez created a unique personal training program that rehabilitated and strengthened my body so I could successfully compete in the 2008 Olympics. He is dedicated to the athletes he works with and passionate about helping them reach their goals. “

I started working with Lorenzo about two years prior to competing in the 2008 Olympic Games. We called him the magician because he could fix anything that ailed us, whether it was a sore back, helping to recover from knee surgery, a chronic wrist injury, jet lag; you name it, he helped us. His unending support and encouragement was crucial during my incredibly intense and stressful competition schedule. He helped me with my injuries, prepared an exercise program tailored towards fencers, helped keep me sane after a tough tournament, and was one of my biggest supporters. I can’t imagine my Olympic experience and journey without Lorenzo there and future athletes would be so lucky to work with him.
