Our Team

Our goal is to put YOU in control of your health.

Expertise

We are a group of fitness and nutrition enthusiasts that love learning new methods, theories, and techniques within the industry. As a team, we come from a diverse set of backgrounds, from physiology, nutrition and exercise science, to business, psychology and medicine.

We’re all athletes in our own realms – powerlifters, figure competitors, marathoners, and swimmers. We’ve all realized that regardless of what your health & fitness goals are…you’re much better off if you know where you’re starting, so that you can know where you’re going!

Meet our leaders

We are athletes, health nuts, and science nerds.
