“I had a shoulder impingement and was having a serious problem with shoulder pain with any kind of presses.  Overhead presses, bench press, pushups, burpees. I went to physical therapy and they got me to the point where I could sleep through the night but any kind of load would make it hurt again. Coach recommended I come check out Nate. it’s been about a month and a half and now I’m pretty much PRing my overhead work and I’m out of pain.”

-Ryan

I have been working with well fit life twice weekly for six weeks. I’m almost 72 years old and I started training to remedy the loss of upper body strength and flexibility over the past few years. benefits of my training include a noticeable increase in flexibility along with more strength, endurance and better balance. Yard work certainly is easier now. An additional bonus has been golf like 10 extra yards on the driver and almost 10 with each iron. I highly recommend Well Fit Life. Training is fun, especially with an engaged trainer who switches up routines and makes new ones frequently. Everyone I know over 50 would benefit from this style of training. Wish I had found WFL sooner.

-Jerry 

I can honestly say that Nate at Well Fit Life is the most knowledgeable mobility/strength specialist I’ve ever worked with – and that’s after I spent over 6 years in the training business myself. His wealth of knowledge goes well beyond anything you can accrue through simple certifications. He’s really poured himself into this career, and it shows. If you need any kind of help in your fitness journey, go here.

Update, hit a 40lb PR on clean and jerk today (215-255). Not bad after a week of 10 minute exercises!

-Ryan C

I had knee pain for several years that made it difficult to walk up stairs and even get in and out of a chair. I saw Ian for a couple of weeks and already I was able to walk without pain. Thank you so much for your help!

-Wesson

“After working with Ian for only a couple of months he asked me how I was feeling. I told him good. What I forgot to mention that day is that I no longer ached every day. My body feels good, my joints feel strong and pain free. A feeling I hadn’t experienced in a very long time”

-Tina W

We specialize in pain management, fitness and sports performance.

We follow the science of exercise, period. We research exercise, nutrition and behavioral science to stay up to date on the best ways to make the changes his clients want to see. No gimmicks, no fluff. Because we believe the best way to change the body is from the inside out, all advice revolves around the science of forcing your hormones, genes, enzymes, etc. to shift for the better with exercise and nutrition.

Stretch and Massage Therapy

Conventional massage therapy is designed to help you feel relaxed. While we offer that, our focus on stretch therapy gets deeper and more effective than any massage you’ve ever experienced. Loosening up connective tissue will aid the body’s ability to heal.

Postural Therapy

Everybody’s posture is getting worse and we have the answer. Rotations across joints can cause serious pains. By doing a small menu of simple exercises every day, you can get rid of this pain. Our method has a 94% success rate for getting rid of pain without surgery or medications.

Movement and Personal Training

First we clear your movement, then we add fitness. Many times well-meaning personal trainers try to add fitness to a body that’s too dysfunctional to move well. By simply taking a few weeks to clear up good movement, your fitness can go beyond your previous peak. Try us to experience the difference.
