John Mitchell was born and raised in the Capital District. At a young age he had a very strong interest in fitness and massage. In his early teens, he began bodybuilding and studied several workout techniques to rule out what is and not effective. With 10 years in the fitness industry and advanced education in fitness and nutrition; John became very inclined in proper fitness programs that are safe, fun, and most effective.

His passion for massage therapy grew over the years. Being deeply involved with boxing and mixed martial arts; John started to understand that massage therapy is necessary for athletes to heal faster, maintain proper range of motion, and to reduce pain. He also learned that not just athletes need massage therapy but so do the elderly with joint issues, children with anxiety and pain, and people with chronic diseases such as Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinsons Disease and arthritis.

In October 2009 John graduated with high honors at Mildred Elley College and now is an accredited NYS Licensed Massage Therapist. He further went on and took the National Exam through ISFTA to become certified in Personal Fitness Training. ISFTA* is the ONLY national fitness education company that is also accredited through national medical boards.

With his educational background in both massage and fitness, John opened up his own practice in Clifton Park, NY. Advanced Bodyworks offers a wide range of services that assist people to advance their health with Massage Therapy, Fitness Training, and Rehabilitative Exercise.

John Mitchell strongly believes in giving back to the community and helping others in need. He participates in fundraisers, charity events, and volunteer work for local churches, organizations, and hospitals. Please feel free to contact John for his support!
