We are passionate about improving the Quality of Life of our coaching clients through Award-winning Group Personal Training, Cutting Edge-Nutrition and Transformative Life Coaching.

Not only do we help the residents in the fast-paced hectic Silicon Valley area get fit through exercise, but also through addressing our Seven Primal Needs: breathing (meditation), hydration, sleep, nutrition, relationships, personal development and movement (exercise including massage, mobility, stretching, posture awareness, etc.)

The Vision
Brien has partnered with Fit Body Boot Camp (FBBC) to help achieve FBBC’s Global Goal to expose and engage 20% of the world’s population to a healthy and fit lifestyle by the year 2020. We accomplish this by continually innovating what we do and how we do it while staying passionate about helping people achieve their fitness goals through world-class coaching, offered at convenient times and at a reasonable cost.


About Fit Body Boot Camp

FBBC is an incredibly effective boot camp model that really helps get people moving. With over 500 locations and growing FBBC will be a household name soon. Fit Body Boot Camp is home of the Afterburn workouts - a group personal training program where you'll get high energy, fun, and challenging workouts designed to burn maximum fat and tone your entire body in only 30 minutes.

These specialized Afterburn workouts use a combination of (HIIT) High Intensity Interval Training and Active Rest Training to get your body to burn more fat and calories than traditional workouts that are twice as long. Every group training session is led by an experienced and certified personal trainer and is designed to be fun, high energy and challenging all while burning maximum fat and toning your muscles.

Personalization is key to getting the best possible results, which is why our workout programs are modified to fit your individual fitness goals and fitness level. Whether you're new to working out or you're an experienced fitness buff our professional trainers and coaches will help to modify every workout so that you'll achieve your goals!

Knowledgeable personal trainers make the difference. FBBC workouts are done in a dynamic group setting which makes them fun, motivating, challenging AND it keeps the cost of working with a certified personal trainer affordable compared to private one-on-one personal training sessions!
