My name is Dr. Joseph A. Sheppard.  I am a Chiropractor, health-nut, researcher and athlete.  I started working out at a very early age and learned the importance of exercise and nutrition in health, well-being and athletic performance. Today, I am an avid cyclist, fitness fanatic, vegetarian and I live an active lifestyle.  Regular exercise, properly functioning nervous system, nutrition and supplementation play a key component in my health, recovery and improved performance on and off the field.

I believe that using the right training techniques and technologies makes the difference between good results and great results. I created The Happy Athlete to share with you the very best health supplements, sports products, technologies and training strategies. My mission is to give you the information, tools, advice and professional experience to help you decide what to buy and how to get the most out of your weekend warrior or elite athletic lifestyle.

Thank you for being a essential part of The Happy Athlete.  I look forward to getting inspired, getting informed and getting fit together.
