STAR Guides Wilderness Therapy | J.R. Martin


J.R. Martin has a unique background, education, and experience to serve you well. In the once rural community of American Fork, Utah, J.R. learned the value of treating everyone well from his father Dr. Jerry R Martin, M.D. Back in the day, Dr. Martin made housecalls, delivered babies and performed surgeries in the hospital, and saw patients in the clinic.

He loved his community and they loved him. J.R.’s experience and desire to serve led him to further his education with double masters degrees in Exercise Science and Medical Science. This unique blend of education makes J.R. particularly qualified to meet your health and fitness needs.
