Jeff Nelson

Co-Founder, Owner

Jeff is one of the founders of Back in Action and the businessman behind behind the scenes. With over twenty years of entrepreneurial experience, he brings strategy, leadership and vision to the company. But he also enjoys the day to day interaction with patients, watching patients get strong, and doing the small things to keep the clinic functioning smoothly. He began his career as an officer in the US Army after attending ROTC at NCSU. He served as an engineer platoon leader and executive officer during his military service and attended many of the military’s best leadership schools. He has coached soccer since 2007 at FVAA, WakeFC, Fuquay-Varina High School and he is currently the men’s varsity soccer coach at Athens Drive High School. Jeff is an avid athlete staying busy in soccer, surfing, crossfit, backpacking, weight training and triathlons. And of course, he’s a Tarheel fan. He loves to sing….but he never gets the words right.
