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!
