Frank Savino

As a former All New York State and All New York City defensive lineman at Holy Cross High School Frank Savino quickly found that he needed more size and strength than his 235 pounds could supply to survive the rigors of collegiate football at Hofstra University.

Applying the principles of High Intensity Training to his own athletic preparation, he built himself into an All American defensive tackle and noseguard and at 285 pounds he enjoyed a brief professional career with the Orlando Thunder of the World League Of American Football which later became NFL Europe. He also had an invitational try out with the Cincinnati Bengals.

After working with NFL, Olympic and collegiate athletes from numerous sports at the facility of Dr. Ken Leistner for four years, and preparing these top level competitors for the rigors of their seasons, Frank completed post-graduate degrees in counseling and higher education administration and served St. John's University of New York as an Associate Dean Of Student Affairs for fifteen years. He left the field of college administration in 2004 and founded Gridiron Inc.

Gridiron is a strength and conditioning facility, specializing in High Intensity Training and located in Flushing, Queens, N.Y. There he directs all program development and supervises the training of many top high school athletes in the New York Metropolitan area, as well as professional and amateur athletes involved in a variety of sports.
