My fitness coaching, nutritional advice, workout programs, and blog posts are meant to educate, inspire, motivate and lead you towards a fit and healthy lifestyle. As a fitness professional I recommend that you consult your doctor before taking on any significant changes pertaining to health, nutrition and exercise. The recommendations, opinions and advice I write about are based upon my own experiences and what has worked well for me. The views expressed are my own.

I am a NASM Certified Personal Trainer, a graduate of the National Personal Training Institute, a Poliquin BioSignature Practitioner, a CrossFit Certified Coach, I hold a Certificate of Nutrition from the National Personal Training Institute, and am a Precision Nutrition Certified Coach. I am not a doctor, registered dietitian, certified nutritionist or physical therapist. You should always be mindful of any injuries, food allergies, special diets or specific health conditions that pertain to you.

Yours In Health,

Coach Brian Donovan
