ABOUT Get Slim Rochester
Founder & Weight Loss Coach
Dr. Michael Gerlach
Dr. Michael's interest in nutrition began when he was still a National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) Division 1 athlete. As a top-level swimmer, he saw how better nutrition leads to better performance in the classroom and in the pool. He went on to attain a Bachelors of Science in Psychology from the University At Buffalo, followed by a Bachelors of Science in Human Biology from Logan University as well as a Doctorate of Chiropractic from Logan University.
As he continued his clinical education, learning more about how the human body works and what a great impact the right nutrients have on the body, it fueled his desire to help others live life in health. That is what he wants to share with everyone: his passion to bring out the best in people through proper nutrition.
Dr. Gerlach also works to give back to the community through work with Faith Child Care Services, serving on the Board of Directors. Dr. Gerlach also gives his time to the Boy Scouts of America, as an Eagle Scout, providing leadership as a High Adventure guide.
