Almost 90 days ago I walked Into beast athletics for the first time in 5 years. I had this goal in my head to get abs by Christmas… What I didn’t realize is that i would accomplish that and so much more!!! My journey with my weight loss has been quite the roller coaster. My struggle with my weight sprung from numerous knee injuries that i incurred playing Soccer at USF. Five surgeries later, i found myself 40lbs overweight and depressed. I started drinking and partying almost everyday to mask a void of being unhappy, ate fast food 4-5 times a week because It was “easier”, and used my knee injuries as an excuse to not workout. I finally came to terms with my situation and found the motivation to get my body back! I managed to lose 25lbs on my own but hit a plateau. I came to Beast Athletics on October 1st and I knew immediately that I made the right decision. I lost another 15lbs and met new goals that I never thought would be possible. It is hard to properly express how amazing my experience has been here. Beast Athletics has become my morning coffee, my accountability, my second family and home.

Meet our latest success story, Victoria. Here’s what she has to say about Beast Athletics:

If you want results…you want Beast Athletics. I have been through it all when it comes to my weight loss journey! I have tried to lose weight on my own but gave up pretty quickly. I didn’t have the proper motivation or support that Beast Athletics has provided me with. The positive atmosphere and family-like environment is something that I’ve never experienced before! Working out is now fun for me and I have a new outlook on living a healthy lifestyle! I have been with Beast since June 2013 and I have lost 63 pounds! When it comes down to getting results, Beast Athletics is dedicated to helping you achieve the body of your dreams in a healthy, smart, and efficient way!

Richard Latta is one of our most recent success stories! He gives 100% in every workout and his new found energy positively affects everyone around him.  Here is what he has to say about his success at Beast Athletics:

When I came to beast athletics I was looking for a change. A change in my body which turned out to be a change in my way of life. Although I wouldn’t project it my self-esteem was very low. Every person I would meet that I hadn’t seen a couple years would barely recognize me and My face was starting to fill out. Shopping for clothes was tougher and I couldn’t play basketball without getting winded very quickly. A few close friends of mine had joined beast in the last year, and I was blown away at their progress and decided I would join. Quickly I found out it was not easy in the beginning as I could barely make it through workouts, sometimes vomiting. I was BEYOND out of shape. Tuck talked about temporary defeat, and motivated me to not let it stop me. I quickly submerged myself into the culture, as just coming everyday was helping, and began meeting different people that were all here for their own various reasons and found additional inspiration in them. My training took a leap when Coach David joined the gym as his positive energy and reinforcement gave me the juice needed to show up everyday and “redline.” Saturday weigh ins became my ritual as I dropped pants sizes and began to regain some of that lost confidence.  Tuck was equal parts friend, motivator, trainer and big brother during all of this. The nutrition was very easy for me to stick to, and has people asking me what I eat to be slim! I felt none of this was possible, but anything truly is to quote Kevin Garnett. I was headed down a road of destruction, via fast food, beer, eating once a day, fried foods and candy. I’ve replaced those things with salad, fish, grilled/baked chicken, celery and more things I wouldn’t have known to try if it were not for the education beast provided. I now know what a burpee is for better or worse, and once I got the hang of it the workouts became easier to push myself through. Thank You to the whole staff at beast for changing my life and helping me get on the road to being shredded!

Kyle Boyle has quickly become one of our strongest members!  He comes in the gym everyday excited to get better and it has shown.  Here’s what Kyle has to say about Beast Athletics:

I am so happy I joined Beast Athletics back in November of 2012. I used to work out pretty frequently, but when I stopped for a while, it didn’t take long to gain a lot of weight and get out of shape. I decided to attend the grand opening party last year with my wife, and really enjoyed the people that worked out there and the overall environment of the gym. Everyone was like family and it seemed like something I would like to be a part of. Since that week, I have never dreaded working out; in fact I enjoy going to the gym 4-5 days a week. I am not only back to the weight I was when I used to work out (my goal weight), but I am physically in the best shape of my life. The coaches are so knowledgeable and have taught me so much; I continue to learn new things every time I am there. There is no other family I would rather be a part of.

3 months ago Ceo Chipper Alex Miller told me that he would be one of my best transformations to date!! His journey started out by throwing up just 10mins into his first session. He didn’t let that stop him. In fact, it made him want it more! He made a vow to follow our nutrition standards and to give 100% every session. He never made excuses for him self and is a testament that hard work pays off!! He has been a inspiration to me and his fellow BEAST TEAMMATES. Proud of you my dude and welcome to the FIT LIFE!! Certified BEAST!!!!!!

Amy Schwartz is down 33 pounds and counting!!! She has definitely put in serious werk!! Check out what she has to say about the Beast Revolution 90 Day Body Transformation Program!!!!

After I gained 40+ pounds being pregnant with my son, I began an uphill battle of trying to lose weight . I had a little too much fun being pregnant and i found myself absolutely hating the way i felt and looked! One of my friends was training at a facility called Beast Athletics and she was getting awesome results! I decided to set up a consultation with Tuck Taylor and the rest is history! Within weeks i was seeing noticeable results and people were starting to make comments about my transforming body.The workouts were very challenging but FUN!! I am so glad I took that first step and contacted Tuck. Beast Athletics definitely has a unique but extremely effective approach to weight loss and is worth every penny!!

After making the decision to become a United States Marine I decided I needed to get into the best physical shape possible before I shipped out for Bootcamp. My brother-in-law had told me about BEAST ATHLETICS and how awesome some of his friends were doing there. So, I called up Tuck and made a consultation to check it out at the start of September. Best decision I ever made to help prepare me for my future. Everyday we do a different style workout. It’s always something new! I’ve attended a few “Marine weekend Bootcamp” events and everything we have done at them is something I’ve already practiced at  Beast Athletics . The great thing about this gym is the members. When I miss a day, someone is checking on me to make sure I’m okay. Everyone is always encouraging and helping me to strive for my dream.  Tuck is always pushing me to accomplish my next goal. It’s a family and I love it. I’ve been a member of plenty of different gyms, but none of them have ever motivated me the way Beast Athletics does. It has made me a stronger person.  I couldn’t have made a better choice in gyms to get me ready for the longest, hardest 3 months of physical training I’ll endure at Marine Bootcamp.

Check out Regan Harvey’s awesome transformation!! She trains hard it shows! Here is what she has to say about her transformation journey!!

After about a year and a half of not working out and being married my weight was spinning out of control and it was time to do something about it. After shopping around a bit I joined a local Boot Camp. The workouts were fun and the instructor was cool but i wasn’t seeing any results. A friend told me about a new Performance Enhancement and Weight Loss facility in Clearwater called BEAST ATHLETICS. She said the trainers were awesome and the programs had a great reputation for getting good results. Now skeptical about the idea of “exercise” and “group training”, I reluctantly joined their Beast Revolution 90 day Body Transformation program. After a couple of weeks of training, I immediately started seeing measurable results!! The scale was down and my clothes started get loose. 90 days later, I’m almost down 30lbs and 12 + inches. People that haven’t seen me in a while are shocked at my results and immediately ask me what Ive been doing. I feel awesome and have a new found appreciation for exercise and nutrition!! Beast Athletics provides is members with an awesome atmosphere to train and programs that yield results!! I’m proud of my progress and cant wait to see where i go from here!!

Very proud of Kim Cooper Thomas! She lost 30lbs on the Beast Revolution 90 Day Challenge and is in the best shape of her life!! Here is what she has to say about Beast Athletics……

I started working out at Beast Athletics twice a week because my previous gym stopped offering fitness classes . I was kinda skeptical at first, but after a month I realized Tuck’s mission at Beast Athletics was more than providing a place to workout, but rather an atmosphere and opportunity to help people transform their lives. I decided to take his ninety day challenge just to see how much weight I could lose in ninety days. At the end of the challenge I had lost 30 POUNDS and a total of 25.2 INCHES! I am a married woman over forty with two teenage children and I’m in better shape now than I have at any point in my adult life. Recently people have said I look younger, fit, and lean. I do not believe in luck or accidents. I believe that God placed Tuck and the Beast Athletics family in my life at a time when I needed to focus on becoming healthier physically, emotionally, and mentally. The decision to take Tuck’s ninety day challenge was definitely one of the best decisions I’ve made to improve the quality of my health and my life for myself and my family.

My weight had been an issue for sometime. Last year I committed myself to getting healthy and losing weight. I was headed on a good path and dropped 15lbs but couldn’t stick with a solid program. I gained the 15lbs back and then some. I was fed up with myself and hated to see myself in the mirror. I started Insanity and was able to lose some weight but I got tired of working out in the confines of my own living room and needed more motivation to get me to the level I wanted to be at. So I decided to join Beast Revolution! I began my weight loss journey at 174lbs and now I’m down all the way to 134lbs!! I’m wearing a size 6 now; a size I never thought I’d get back to again. I have a renewed sense of self confidence and I feel better than ever! Tuck and my TEAMBEAST family pushed me to give 110% in every session. I feel stronger than I’ve ever felt in my life and have more energy to keep up with my kids!

In 2011 I started my weight loss journey by joining a Zumba class in my neighborhood. By just being more active and making better food choices, I   was able to drop 25 lbs on my own. Then came the dreaded plateau!! With my weight at a standstill I decided to join the Beast Revolution Total Body Transformation Program. In Just 90 days she not only did I get past that plateau, but was on the right track of achieving the body of  my dreams!! In just 90days I reduced my body fat by 10%, dropped 30lbs and lost 8 inches from my waistline! Not only did i lose the weight but I got  into the shape of her life!! I’m able to flip a 250lb tire multiple times, run 2 miles without stopping and most importantly I feel GREAT!!

Before Tuck I had been working out for about three years and although I lost some weight and gained some strength, I didn’t really looked like I wanted to or that I even went to the gym. I finally came to the conclusion that something needed to changed so I decided to talk to Tuck. I sat down with him for a consultation and he told me about his Beast Transformation Program. I liked what I heard and committed to changing my life. I’ve been training with Tuck for about three months now and not only have I lost 30+ pounds, I’ve gained a lot of strength. I’m very grateful for Tuck teaching me about how to have healthier lifestyle and keeping me motivated to do so.

Clearwater Personal TrainerAfter hearing great things about the BEAST TRANSFORMATIONS PROGRAM me and my girl friend decided we’d give it a try. 3 months passed and we are now a fraction of what we used to be!! We lost over 100lbs together and are looking and feeling better than ever!! Tuck is not only a talented and knowledgeable trainer, he is also great at bringing out the best in each of his clients! He had us doing things that I’d never thought we could do which gave us even more motivation. My girl friend Kristel had prior back problems and asthma and Tuck was able to customize the workouts to meet her specific needs! We are now living healthier lives and enjoying our NEW BODIES!!

All my life, I struggled with my weight. I have tried several diet and exercise plans over the years. Some worked, others did not, and when it was over, I was back to my old habits. I began Tuck’s Beast Transformation program with the purpose of losing weight quickly and he did not disappoint! With his innovative training sessions, I lost 20 pounds within a month and a half! But Tuck has not only helped me lose the weight, he also motivated me to live a healthier lifestyle. I feel better and stronger than ever! Working with Tuck and the Beast Transformations program was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made!

 

Professional Basketball Player

Out of all the trainers I’ve had during my career, Tuck has helped me out the most. Other trainers I’ve had just threw together workouts that were unorganized and didn’t necessarily meet my physical needs. Tuck did an analysis of the way my body moved and conducted an assessment. From there he created a program tailored to my specific needs. Not only did I go into training camp in the best shape of my life, but I played better than I had in a while!!

Tuck has a true passion for helping others and it shows in his dedication to his clients. Tuck helped get my body ready for college tennis and I went in feeling like a BEAST!!!Clearwater Personal Trainer

I needed to lose weight and lose weight fast. I tried P90x and a couple of other programs but they just weren’t working. So I contacted Tuck, because I heard good things about his company. In our consultation he told me about his Beast Athletics Transformation program. He said I would lose 15-25 lbs in just 1 month. Well he was not lying! I LOST 20 lbs in just 4 WEEKS on the program!. I’m starting to see muscles on my body that I did not know I had and I’m in the best shape of my life! Tuck is a TRUE FITNESS PROFESSIONAL. He pushes you to your highest potential in every workout! I would suggest Tuck and his Beast Athletics program to anyone. If RESULTS is what you want, then Tuck is the trainer for you!

I first starting training with Tuck in the beginning of 2007. I was going through a rough patch and just joined a gym after being lazy the previous couple of years. I’m an athlete, and have been pretty much my entire life, but once the organized sports stopped and I ignored nutrition labels, my unhealthy habits finally caught up to me. I was lucky to meet Tuck when I did, because he has, to this day, been the best trainer I have had the last couple of years. I was blessed because he incorporated cardio with basketball drills into my workouts so not only was I sweating, but it was increasing my skill level simultaneously. I lost a total of 40 lbs of the course of 6 months training with Tuck. He never once gave up on me and pushed me to limits I didn’t know existed within myself. I will forever thank him for helping create the will power I now know is in me and will continue to use the rest of my healthy and fit life.

Tuck has a true passion for training and is enthusiastic about empowering people to make a change. Tuck challenges you to mentally and physically push past your pre-existing boundaries and shows you that what was thought to be impossible is possible. In my first month training with Tuck I lost 6 inches! And in a month and a half have gone from a size 11 to 8. The truth of training with Tuck is clearly in those numbers! He is an extremely dynamic trainer and keeps my workouts challenging yet fun. Tuck preaches that to obtain your fitness goal, one not only has to be strong in body but more importantly strong in mind! Out of all the trainers I have met with (5 total) Tuck has yielded the best results and in the fastest time. I’m a dedicated BEAST and I love it!

Tuck is the best trainer I have ever had and Beast Boot Camp is the best workout I’ve EVER had!! I came to Tuck with the goals of toning up and dropping some pounds for the beach season. Within the first couple of weeks of training I started seeing NOTICEABLE results!! The workouts are challenging but Tuck conducts them in a manner that makes them FUN! Women of all ages participate in the classes and we all work together to achieve a healthier mind and body. Tuck’s upbeat and energetic attitude creates a POSITIVE environment in which EVERYONE can thrive! I really appreciate his help and training with him is one of the best investments I’ve made. I highly recommend him to anyone looking for results that LAST!

Tuck’s training method is insane!!! His knowledge of sports and movement allow the workouts to be very effective while staying sport specific. Not only did I get faster and stronger while training with him but I also became an overall better athlete. Tuck’s knowledge and creative approach to training makes the workouts tough but Fun!!!

Bluntly, if you want results…you want Tuck. It is so true. I have been through it all when it comes to my weight loss strife! I have tried ALL the diets out there: Weight Watcher’s, Jenny Craig, Doctor mediated and controlled diets, Hoodia, Chitosan, South Beach, everything! Every single one of them put me in an unrealistic situation to lose weight and resulted in gaining the 55lbs (that I so desperately needed to lose) back! Tuck has given weight loss a whole new meaning for me! I have been with him since November 2007 and I have lost 18 inches all around my body and 15lbs and it is only February 2008! Through his interesting and exciting training techniques and outstanding knowledge of anatomy and physiology, Tuck has made me a very happy client! I am still with him and plan on being with him for another few months, but when it comes down to getting results, Tuck is going to do anything he can to get you the dream body you desire, in a healthy, smart, and efficient way!

Since I have been training with Tuck, I’ve become stronger and leaner. The techniques he uses are smarter and more effective than exercises I’ve done in the past. Tuck is sure that I make every rep count and pushes me to push myself. He keeps my workouts creative and fun while tailoring them to my goals and abilities. I would recommend training with Tuck to anyone who is serious about living a healthier lifestyle.

I first started working out with Tuck about a month ago. I was apprehensive at first because I had never worked out with a personal trainer; however, after my first session with him I knew I had made a good decision. I always thought it was boring to go and work out. Since I have been training with Tuck working out is now exciting. From the upper body workouts to the lower body, Tuck always makes the work outs interesting and fun and he never repeats an exercise more than once, so it never gets boring. With his upbeat personality and his “go-getter” attitude he made me realize that I can do this if I put my mind to it. Tuck is the type of trainer who will push you to your limit, because he knows you will like the results in the end. I am very grateful for Tuck, even though it has only been a month, I have already lost ten inches and have all the energy in the world. Because I made the decision to have Tuck as my personal trainer I now know that the goal I have had set in mind for the longest time, will now become a reality and no longer be just a dream!

Training with Tuck was an awesome experience. His knowledge of the human body and how it works related to sport is amazing. I saw immediate results while training with him. I felt quicker, faster, and stronger and it showed in my on the court play. Not only is he very knowledgeable but he is a great motivator. He pushed me to new heights and for that I’m forever thankful.

Tuck is not only a great trainer, he’s a role model. His positive attitude and love for training is contagious. He is awesome at taking your weaknesses and turning them into your strengths. Tuck motivates me during our sessions to make every rep and pushes my body to new levels. After our workout sessions i truly feel like a “Beast”. Training with him makes playing soccer a lot easier. My body doesn’t get as tired and i feel faster than ever!! I’m proud to be a part of Beast Athletics not because it has made me a better athlete, but because it has made me a better person!!

Being the owner of my own company and the mother of three, my time is very limited. I came to Tuck to tone up for photo shoots and to maintain my overall health. In just 30 minute workouts, Tuck transformed my body and elevated my fitness level I ways I never imagined!!! If you are SERIOUS about getting into shape, Beast Athletics is the answer!!!

As a competitive kick boxer I’ve used many trainers through out the bay area. Most of them take you through the same work outs and stick to standard exercises which do not help me excel in my sport. That was not the case when I started with Tuck. His innovative approach not only kept me from feeling like I got a “canned work out” but his speed and agility drills took me to that next level. I was already in decent shape when I started, but Tuck pushed me so I would get into great shape. My quickness improved and I felt better and lighter on my feet than ever before. For a fighter that makes all the difference. I can truly say that Beast Athletics tremendously improved my strength,agility, and conditioning.

Beast Athletics is awesome! I have been to 3 personal trainers and Tuck was the best out of them all. He actually focused on the important things and helped me achieve my goals. I needed to improve on my speed and agility and just in a couple weeks i did! I came out with a lot more achievements as well like being a lot more flexible too. He also helps you prevent injury’s unlike most trainers. I am very happy with my results. Thank you to Tuck and Beast Athletics i am going to The Ohio State University in great shape and ready to kick ass!

“I went to Tuck 5 months ago with the goal of losing weight before my wedding. After the first couple weeks I noticed a change in the way I felt and looked. Tuck trains everyone as if they are athletes. This helped me stay motivated and it challenged my mind a body in ways I never imagined. Tuck has been a BIG help in keeping me focused as I have been keeping off the weight even after the wedding. Beast Boot Camp is a FUN and AFFORDABLE workout and I HIGHLY recommend it to EVERYONE!!.”

Training with Tuck and Beast Athletics has been an awesome experience. He not only taught me the tools to reach my weight loss goals but he also inspired me to want to achieve them. Between strength training and Beast Boot Camp I lost 13 pounds and dropped 4 dress sizes ! I also achieved toned lean muscles and most importantly had a great time doing it. Thanks Tuck! #IMABEAST

Beast Athletics is the best!!! Tuck always makes sure that you get the best out of every workout. His sessions are organized and very functional. He really focuses on technique and executing all of the drills correctly. I came to him with hopes of increasing my speed and agility and in in only 3 weeks I saw a huge improvement.

When I decided I wanted to lose some weight and build up some strength and stamina, I decided to connect with a personal trainer. Lucky for me that I found Tuck with Beast Athletics. Tuck looked at my lifestyle, my current condition and my history of medical issues and designed a program specifically for me to meet my goals. The workouts were challenging but fun and he made sure to vary the workouts to keep me from getting bored. Tuck ‘s expertise as a fitness professional and his great personality made it easier for me to make the changes I needed to become more fit and I lost 25lbs in NO TIME! Thanks Tuck for helping me on my journey to fitness and good health.

Eckerd College

The Beast Athletics School of Flight took my game to the next level!! I increased my vertical by 5inches and I’m jumping higher than i ever had before. In senior year in high school I got 13 dunks and was shocking people in the crowd by my athletic ability! Tuck taught me the proper way to jump and did analysis on my mechanics. From there he put me through an 8 week program that consisted of many different modes of exercise. By the end of the 8 weeks i was jumping out of the gym!!!! If you are looking to increase your vertical jump and become an overall better athlete, the Beast Athletics School of Flight is the way to go!!

Losing weight after having my baby was nearly impossible for me on my own, so I sought the help of Beast Athletics with Tuck as my personal trainer.  What a difference it makes to have someone who pushes you to do your best and teaches you about good nutrition and the lifestyle changes that are needed to not only lose weight but to maintain good health. I lost a total of 45 lbs. while working with Tuck and my body is getting back to pre-baby condition.   I couldn’t have done it without Tuck and Beast Athletics!!

Singer/Entertainer

There are a lot of personal trainers out there today, but Tuck has to be in the elite category of this profession. He is on point with the nutrition and exercises and knows how to help you reach your goal. He is so enthusiastic about health and fitness that it becomes contagious. He works individually with me to give me challenging yet achievable goals. I am a singer by profession and working with Tuck allowed me to mold my body so that I can showcase it with pride as I perform on stage. I highly recommend Tuck and Beast Athletics if you are serious about getting fit and making some lifestyle changes.

Choreographer

Results!! That’s what I got with Beast Athletics and Tuck as my personal trainer.  As a professional choreographer, fitness is a priority. Tuck is very knowledgeable and passionate about fitness.  He does a great job of tailoring the programs to meet his client’s needs. He offers great encouragement and motivation along the way.  Thanks to Beast Athletics I’ve lost 30 lbs. over the last 2 months and my stamina has increased.

I battled my weight for over 8 years before I heard about Beast Transformations.  During this time I tried every kind of diet you can imagine. Some diets  worked a bit, other didn’t work at all, but in the end I always gained  back what I had lost. My motivation was drained and I accepted the fact  that I was going to be overweight for the rest of my life. I hired Tuck Taylor as my trainer and joined his BEAST TRANSFORMATIONS program. I couldn’t believe it but  in 6 weeks  I lost 25 lbs!! People were constantly telling me how good i looked and that motivated me to continue to lead a healthy lifestyle after i was done with the program!! If weight loss is the problem, BEAST ATHLETICS is the answer!!

Hi!, I am John, a 56 year old physician. I have been training with Tuck for more than 2 years. He has helped me rehab a knee injury that could have required surgery, and a broken forearm. Since I have started working with Tuck, I started running after an 18 year “lay off” and finished the 2009 Breast cancer 5K at a new personal best! I am in the best shape of my life! I have referred patient athletes to Tuck and he has helped them vastly improve their abilities and recover form athletic injury. I wouldn’t claim to be a BEAST yet… but I am working at it! Just get started!
