Once upon a time in Mosul, Iraq, a Special Forces Sergeant met a civilian during the Jingle Bell Four Miler race. For the remainder of their deployment, they ran a jillion miles dreaming of a new life together.

Two years later, they got married and dedicated their new careers to helping people in Marin County discover their inner athlete through personal training, nutritional consultation, and self-defense. They love surprising clients through increased confidence derived from achievements that create ripple effects in all areas of their lives.

They got certified as personal trainers and nutritional consultants through the National Personal Training Institute. The rest is fitness history.

(NPTI is the most extensive personal training certification in the country with 500 hours of in-depth exercise theory, kinesiology, and program design; Detailed anatomy and physiology; six months of practical hands-on gym experience; and 100 hours of nutrition study resulting in three certifications and is the only program approved by the US Department of Education).
