Our Story



Healthy living is a Body Balance.

The idea of Body Balance came through inspiration over 25 years ago when Jeff started his career in fitness. After entering the field of personal training, he quickly noticed a disturbing trend – most of his clients were one dimensional with their health, fitness, nutrition, and wellness goals. He knew that healthy living requires a special balance between strength, cardiovascular, metabolic conditioning, nutrition, sleep, and overall wellness. Jeff and his wife, Tricia, took this fit of inspiration and fought to make their dream a reality—the dream of owning their own training studio.

Through hard work, the dream became a reality when Body Balance Fitness Training opened in 1998 and was the FIRST training studio on the Westside. With the humble beginning of operating out of a health club, Body Balance Training continued to grow and thrive through a special vision of CARE and SERVICE. Body Balance Training now operates out of a state-of-the-art, 5,000-sq. ft. facility.

When I first started training, I was 50 pounds overweight, smoking cigarettes, eating poorly, and having some serious health issues. I know what I needed to do, but just didn’t have the motivation. Personal Training was…
