GET A CUSTOMIZED FITNESS PLAN FROM THE EXPERTS

Unfortunately, there is not a one size fits all solution when it comes to the human body. The most popular fitness plans and diets of today may not be the best for you or your body. In fact, it's most certainly not, because they weren't made for you. They were made for many. What works well for your body is unique, because it is unique. You and your neighbor likely don't share the same metabolism, or the same medical history, or live identical lifestyles, have identical genetics, or even have the same fitness goals. With our registered dietitians, certified personal trainers, exercise physiologists, and registered nurses working together to develop a plan made just or you, what you get is truly your fitness solution, and no one else's.

Personalized Services

Personal Training

Whether you are training to be the next American Ninja Warrior, are looking to lose some holiday weight , or simply want to know the "right" way to approach a goal (or a workout machine), our exceptional trainers are here to be a source of knowledge, encouragement, and motivation. Their number one goal is your number one goal.

Nutrition plan

Contrary to belief, there is no single "one size fits all" diet plan capable of providing everyone with all of the right nutrients and in all of the right amounts. Taking into account your medical history, known genetics, a brief health assessment, and more, we engineer a nutrition plan to be precisely what your unique body needs today to thrive. An accurate nutrition plan is the first step in achieving an overall healthier, happier you.

exercise plan

Not all exercise routines are created equal. If you don't feel you are seeing the results you are striving for with your current exercise plan, it may not be you that is the problem. We are frequently reviewing and adjusting exercise plans . If you don't know where to start navigating your current challenges, don't stress over it. We're here to listen, analyze, and contribute to your health's success story.

motivation techniques

The only thing more important than having a good plan is having good follow through. If you're feeling a little less than motivated one day, or every day, we're here to help with that too! We've found that the best way to help someone do something they don't want to do, is to first help them want to do it. We work with you to find and develop your positive motivators that make the path just as enjoyable as the destination, and sometimes more!

No shoes? no gym? no problem

What people are saying...

      I feel so lucky to have found Michael and YFS through thumbtack! I never thought I’d be looking for a personal trainer, but after struggling to find a class or routine that didn’t risk irritating my herniated discs in my back, I decided it was time to invest in a personalized plan. Michaels knowledge and background is impressive and he really cares about all his clients and the quality of services he and all the trainers are providing. I am not a gym person by nature but I really enjoyed working with Michael and learned so much.

      Michael is hands down the best trainer in Nashville! He trained me my last semester of medical school from a period of late January to May. This was my first personal training experience and was not sure what to expect but Michael made the transition from never working out to being a regular gym goer effortless. We sat down, I told him what I wanted, and he made it happen. Over the course of late January I went from 190-165 and tacked on muscle as well. Easy to talk to, understanding of scheduling changes, and if you stick to his process it absolutely works and you will see the results you desire! I wish him much success! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED TRAINER!!!

      Michael is the absolute best personal trainer I have ever met. His qualifications simply blow everyone else out of the water! I feel so lucky to have been able to connect with him. He has two Master's degrees and ample experience with every type of fitness client. My personal goals are simply to stay in shape and gain muscle and Michael provides a variety of approaches for me to reach this goal. He's not intimidating like some trainers, and he's not mentally checked-out. I appreciate that he is very down to earth, easy to communicate with, and that he gives me 100% of his attention in our sessions. If you're considering Michael I would simply tell you to look no further! He really is someone I can confidently recommend to anyone as a personal trainer.

      I was trying to lose weight for my wedding and hit a plateau so decided to look into a personal trainer and found Michael. He gave me a nutrition plan that was incredibly easy to follow and didn’t leave me constantly hungry. He was also very quick to respond any time I had questions or just needed some motivation! I finally got over my plateau and am on my way to reaching my goal weight. I can’t recommend him enough!
