Special Olympics Gymnast from California Leads Free Workouts alongside WWE Becky Lynch

Greg flexing his muscles.

Professional video shoots are full of flashing lights, loud noises and new scenarios. For someone with autism who has sensitivity to flashing lights, this setting can be overwhelming and intimidating. But Greg Demer did not let that stop him from participating in the School of Strength fitness series that was filmed last year and launched in March 2020. Greg worked with the camera crews and knew when they had to flash the lights so he could either step out or cover his eyes.

Greg demonstrated his strength—both physical and emotional—throughout the filming. Learn more about this 33-year-old gymnast from Southern California in his own words.

Watch Greg in action and begin your School of Strength workout today!
