Greg A. Smith  

Greg Smith is "America?s Strength Coach." When you envision the word, "strength," you probably don?t think of a 65-pound man in a power wheelchair.

How could a "Strength Coach" be so frail? Then, suddenly, you "get it." Moments into his presentation, after hearing his resonant voice, you find yourself realizing that his presence reveals a deeper level of strength: inner strength!

Born with muscular dystrophy, raised by a football coach, Greg's inner strength message is woven into all of his programs: "In any situation, great opportunity exists for victory." Greg’s remarkable life story was revealed to America in a PBS documentary film, “On A Roll: Family, Disability and the American Dream,” which aired in February, 2005. His autobiography, “On A Roll: Reflections from America’s Wheelchair Dude with the Winning Attitude” was published in 2005. His radio show, “The Strength Coach,” airs nationwide on the Radio America Network. For 11 years, Greg hosted "On A Roll - Talk Radio on Life & Disability" a syndicated program that aired on more than 70 stations nationwide.

Greg has been honored as an "Exceptional American" by the National Liberty Museum in Philadelphia, profiled in the Wall Street Journal, New York Times, New York Times Magazine, CBS News and National Public Radio. He is a member of the National Speakers Association and makes dozens of trips across the country to address corporate, academic and private audiences. In addition to his busy career, he is the father of three active children, ages 15, 13 and 10.
