After watching my mom battle health issues my entire life, I knew that I wanted to make an impact on other people's quality of life. In 2013, I became a certified personal trainer and nutritionist. After training my own clients for a few years, I decided to take a leap of faith and open Elev8 Performance in 2015.
Since then we have evolved our definition of heath and continue to elevate our level of standards in the health and wellness space. My promise to you is that we will continue to do our due diligence to bring you the best services that this industry has to offer. I’m looking forward to meeting you and watching you crush your goals!

Bryant was overweight his entire life, especially into his college years. He would always tell himself the same lie every morning - "you're born to be fat or skinny. You're fat." One day he woke up and decided it was time to stop lying to himself.
He decided he was ready to take initiative for my life and health. In 2011, he was 220lbs and through dieting he was able to drop 20lbs. When he added p90x, he lost another 30lbs and found himself on the other end of the spectrum – “skinny”. Bryant decided to shift his fitness goals to gaining muscle mass in powerlifting. Fast forward 10 years and he has personal experience in almost every area of fitness – cycles of bodybuilding, powerlifting, power bodybuilding, 2 men’s physique shows, an Olympic weightlifting comp, and almost every diet under the sun. In 2017 Bryant decided to turn his personal experience into a profession where he can help others achieve their own fitness goals. His personal experience paired with his extensive knowledge and certifications allows him to relate with a wide spectrum of people and help them conquer their goals.
