About Us

We believe that an exercise and nutrition program should be designed around the individual and not the other way around..


At Bodysynergy we specialize in customized solutions for helping you achieve your health and fitness goals. Our approach is to fit training and nutrition around the individual and not the other way around. We believe everyone is different and has different circumstances and needs.

Most of the time people fail at achieving their training and nutrition goals as a result of not having the 3 most important things in place.

These are:

1. Training and Nutrition based on science and not fads.

2. Well thought out plan, with a backup plan for when things out of your control happen.

3. Staying accountable

At Bodysynergy you will be equipped with a training and nutrition plan based on the latest science of what works. We will also construct a well thought out game plan for you with options when things out of your control occur. We will also ensure you stay accountable by having regular check in and progress evaluation sessions with you.
