Instead of [the traditional stimulation device] paradigm, what we're trying to do is send more of a sensory signal so rather than a motor signal taking over the muscles and causing them to do something, we're actually sending a signal as if movement is taking place and even if it isn't, as if movement is taking place and seeing how the brain responds to movement. Remember the body is capable of doing more than it's currently doing. And if we send a signal that movement is happening in a certain area, we're going to be able to tap into where those limitations are actually occurring. As we scan around with the electrode, we're able to find areas where there's dysfunction.

Who is Garrett Salpeter?

Known as "The Health Engineer," Garrett has taken his education in Physics (BS) and Engineering (MSE) and applied it to a system for making the human body better. His journey started when he picked up ice hockey as a boy. It was a game he loved, but for which he had little natural aptitude. After several years "skating by," he decided to delve deeply into the world of strength and conditioning to try to give himself a chance to play at a higher level. Unfortunately, what was popular at the time did not work for him -- and he kept searching.

In dealing with some injury problems, he learned about the paramount importance of the nervous system and saw the connections to how the same neurological principles could be applied to fitness. The neurological approach worked, and he never looked back. He became determined to learn as much as possible about how to affect the nervous system. To that end, he spent hundreds of hours in self-study, mentored under several leading-edge practitioners, tested many of his theories on himself and others, and even went back to school for a Ph.D. program in Neuroscience.

In 2009, he opened his first facility in Austin, TX to start sharing these methods with his community. This has grown into what we now know as NeuFit, which combines an advanced understanding of physiology with the best practices from diverse training and therapeutic practices, and constantly pushes these processes by using technology to accelerate them further. Since that first day, he has worked with people of all ages and in almost all situations, including athletes from MLB, the NFL, the NHL, UFC, Olympics, NCAA Divisions I, II, and III, and more, helping them get out of pain, improve performance, sometimes avoid surgeries, and live life at a higher level.

He lives in Austin, Texas and is ecstatically in love with his wife, Briana, and their two daughters, Gwenny and Gemma.

What is the NEUBIE?

NEUBIE is NeuFit’s patent-pending device. It is an acronym for “NEURO-BIO-ELECTRIC STIMULATOR.” The NEUBIE is engineered to take advantage of all of the amazing things we’ve learned about the nervous system in the last 2-3 decades.

The nervous system controls every muscle movement. The NEUBIE wave form has two main benefits. (1) It provides direct current, and (2) it matches the signals the nervous system already sends naturally on its own.

If a movement dysfunction is contributing to your pain, keeping you injured, limiting your mobility, or robbing you of performance, then the Neubie can help you.
