Xtreme Couture Welcomes – Dr. John Fitzgerald (aka BloodDoc)

Posted: October 3, 2008 by Xtreme Couture MMA in John Fitzgerald


Xtreme Couture welcomes advanced blood chemist for sports performance Dr. John Fitzgerald.

John has always been involved in athletics.  He was an All-State Linebacker in Iowa and set a school record for the most tackles in a season.  He was then elected into his high school football hall of fame in 2006.

John played college football as a weak side linebacker and lettered as a freshman.  He hurt his neck and shoulders and was helped by a chiropractor that worked with athletes.  The chiropractor was Dr. David Johnson, whose son, Zach Johnson won the Masters Golf tournament a couple years ago.

While in college, John began broadcasting high school football games.  He even remembers interviewing quarterback Kurt Warner and several other future pro players after their high school games.

John was a chemistry major at the time and was so impressed with Dr. Johnson that he decided to go to transfer colleges and go to chiropractic school.  While in college, he was still interested in chemistry and became heavily involved in going to outside nutrition seminars after finding out that his father had cancer.

After college, John opened a clinic that focused on both Nutritional medicine and chiropractic.  In 1996, he started doing a radio show that was focused on nutritional medicine.  He ended up being on the radio for 5 years on 4 different stations that had coverage in North and South Carolina, Georgia, and Florida.  His practice rapidly grew to over 3000 patients with an emphasis on Nutritional medicine.

In 1998, John was asked to be the team doctor for the Carolina Hurricanes which were a team in the now defunct minor league to the NFL.  His focus with this team was on sports performance and to help players advance to the NFL, World League and USFL.  John became known for helping athletes get the most out of their bodies.

He has worked with many college and professional athletes primarily in football, tennis, boxing, wrestling, power lifting and now MMA.
