We pride ourselves in being able to specialize in the tough cases of weight management, sports nutrition, vegetarians, flexibility training, and strength training.

We are a results-oriented nutrition and fitness business and offer a variety of services that can meet your needs as an individual, group, or company in the Austin, TX area and beyond.  What separates us from other personal trainers, registered dietitians, and nutritionists is that we are all at the same time and able to provide expert services as a dual professional.

Maybe you have tried other trainers and nutritionists and aren’t getting the results you want.  Maybe you are new to making a healthy lifestyle a priority in your life and want to not waste any more time or precious motivation navigating the confusing marketing and trends that the fitness industry and supplement stores would have you believe to make a profit.

We are not here to sell supplements, gimmicks, or quick fixes.  We take the guesswork out of getting you results and can support your progress in the war against personal habit change.  We employ coaching, counseling, and education in our services.
