5 Fitness

As a trainer, I strive to have a positive, strong impact on my client's lifestyle. I want and will do everything in my power to make sure my clients benefit from every aspect of training with me. I’m always asking myself, “how can I add more value to my client’s sessions?”. With this guiding thought, my creative side kicked in and thus Living Amped was born. On July 1st, 2011 I filed a DBA with the city and made it official. Living Amped, my training company, is dedicated to helping educate, encourage and motivate others in the benefit of leading a healthy lifestyle by providing beneficial and essential coaching to those of need. Living Amped offers a variety of different training options.

About the time Living Amped all started to come together, a friend of mine asked me to be a core coach for his new gym/facility, 5 Fitness Training & Yoga. I told him about my company and my desire to make it a well known program, not just in Austin, but any where. I want to help coach people to lead a healthy lifestyle no matter where they live. We talked about my goals and core values of Living Amped. He quickly offered space in his facility so can not just launch Living Amped, but host it there. Pieces where coming together so perfectly it was scary!

Using Zum as a visual guidance, the owner is building a fabulous training facility in the Mira Vista Medical Park off Bee Caves Road. 5 Fitness’s mission is to provide the Westlake area with an elite Personal Training and Yoga Stuidio, run and managed by the area’s most experienced personal fitness coaches, who specialize and excel in the five core foundations of health and fitness; Strength Training, Cardiovascular Health, Nutrition, Flexibility, Recovery and Rest. This training facility is going to be nothing short of top notch, atmosphere included. I cannot think of a better place to host Living Amped.

Mid September 2011 I was presented with a non-compete from The Hills. In my decision not to sign it, October 3rd, 2011 quickly became my last day at The Hills; 3 weeks short of my 5 year anniversary. The Hills took a chance on me out of college and for that I will be eternally grateful. However, sometimes it just takes a little shove to confirm that you are doing the right thing.

5 Fitness is currently in the process of being built. The building/space is there, we are waiting on permits so we can make bigger moves, but it is moving right along. Once the permits are approved, it will be a quick 4 week build out. Until then, the owner has secured a space just down the sidewalk for us core trainers to train our clients. I will be training out of this temporary space starting October 4th, 2011.
