What We Do

We help men and women lose weight and feel the best they have felt in decades with a transformational  combination of individualized workouts, personalized health coaching, powerful-life saving mindset and good old fashioned caring.   

What We've Found

What we’ve found is that most men and women over 40 struggle with losing weight and feeling healthy.  They feel awkward and out of place at the gym so they make excuses to not go like “I’m too busy.” 

What they really want is to look and feel better, to have more energy, and increase their confidence.  They want to be able to keep up with their kids (and grandkids) for decades to come. On top of that, they really don’t want to put their kids through the hell of taking care of them like they’re doing with their parents. 

But they mistakenly think the problem is their weight and that health is a number on a scale.  So they end up going to weight loss programs, buying gym memberships they never use, or trying (and failing) to stay on a diet.  They never create strong health habits and end up right back where they started —— or worse. 

The real problem is that their mindset around health keeps them stuck with the same unsatisfying results they’ve always gotten, the underlying hormone imbalances that create the weight gain are never addressed, and their health continues to get worse. 

What they really need is to go beyond weight loss programs and diets to discover sustainable health by developing a new mindset and creating a few core habits that are the foundation of health and fitness.
