Gianni Vecchiarelli (Clinic Owner) is passionate about helping people meet their health and weight loss goals. Gianni began his health and wellness career in Colorado’s leading fitness club over 20 years ago. Working with physique trainers and designing gym programs to fit his customer’s specific lifestyle needs gave him a vision for a lifelong personal journey of health. As Gianni started a family, he joined a company outside the health and wellness industry and began traveling the globe. Travel is tough on the body, and no matter how many hours he spent in the gym each week, Gianni recognized that as we age or our priorities shift, maintaining a healthy lifestyle can sometimes feel impossible.
Gianni believes that achieving and maintaining a healthy weight is not just about following a strict diet or exercise plan but about making sustainable changes to your lifestyle and mindset – and often, we all need just a little help. So, he returned to his first passion for assisting individuals in achieving their health and weight loss goals in a healthy, sustainable way. Thus, Medical Health Solutions was born, and Gianni could not be happier to be a source of knowledge, support, and answers to the hard questions about health and weight loss. He believes that everyone has the potential to lead a happier, healthier life, and he is dedicated to providing the resources needed to make that happen in his client’s lives.
A native of Colorado, Gianni is a husband and father of two active children. He coaches his son’s football, wrestling, and jiu-jitsu teams and recently discovered jiu-jitsu for himself to destress, sweat, and get that functional cardio in. In the summertime, you will find him climbing up the Castle Rock incline with his family in tow, which is much more enjoyable after 65+ pounds of weight loss!
