You saved my life!!

I was in so much pain from a past injury that I couldn't even do everyday activities. Now that I have lost 50 lbs I feel great and have energy all day because I maintained my muscle..

The Team

Tim Burnell
Physical Therapist, Weight Loss Expert

Tim is a graduate of the University of South Alabama. Tim is a certified BCA Clinician, Certified Ideal Protein Weight Loss coach and licensed Physical Therapist with over 20 years of professional experience.

Tim believes it doesn’t matter if a dieter wants to lose 5lbs or 150 lbs, this program works! He enjoys telling people that he can help them when others have failed. The best part of coaching for Tim is when a dieter comes back a year later and has kept the weight off!
