Dan Wall has been a personal trainer and business owner in the Tampa Bay area for over 30 years. After training himself consistently to achieve great things in the bodybuilding world, ultimately winning the title of Mr. Syracuse and top 5 Mr. New York State, he decided he wanted to help others achieve their fitness goals. He decided to move from New York in 1990 and started Wall to Wall Fitness. Wall to Wall Fitness quickly took off acquiring over 350 clients with ten trainers and outgrew its facility twice in the first year.
Dan’s ambition and passion for supporting personal health continued to drive him through various successful ventures, including developing fitness programs, Better Fit by Dan Wall, and consulting to establish numerous residential community centers throughout the Tampa Bay area. Dan has always enjoyed the personal attention he gives each client but was in search of a way to provide his expertise on a larger scale. In the personal training business, he was limited by the number of hours in the day, only being able to affect 8-10 clients.
As he set out on his next venture, he united with Tracey McFarlane, a decorated Olympian and physical therapist that shared the same aspirations and drive. Tracey’s lifelong commitment to fitness started at a young age, competing in swimming throughout high school, and then onto the University of Texas. As a member of the University of Texas swim team, Tracey was a part of 4 national championships and went on to win a silver medal in the 1988 Olympic Games following her senior year at Texas.
After ending her professional swim career, Tracey searched for her next endeavor and landed at a physical therapy clinic. While swimming, she experienced numerous shoulder problems and found that physical therapy was the only thing that made it better. Wanting to help others find the benefits she experienced, Tracey attended PT school and progressed in her career, becoming a Regional Director for an outpatient physical therapy company and the largest home health company in the country. Physical therapy satisfied Tracey’s desire to take care of people and give them more than they expected with each interaction, treating the whole person rather than just a body part. While she has enjoyed the labors of her profession, she too desired to help promote physical fitness on a grander scale and affect more lives than she was able to in a workday.
With a shared passion and vision to create a fitness center that offered group training with a personal touch, World Body Fitness was crafted. The World Body Fitness brand embodies Olympism bringing a blend of competitive spirit, comradery, fitness, culture, education, and co-operation. The World Body Fitness mission is to go above and beyond people’s expectations for the group fitness experience. It brings a highly energetic, motivating workout experience that allows members to give back to their community with their efforts.

Now, with World Body Fitness, they can help their members achieve personal fitness goals and work together to build better, healthier communities.
