Our Process



Most people need to eat less and move more however; it is essential that we move well, before we move more. We believe that any program design is only as good as your assessment. Click here to learn all about Our Assessment Process & Functional Movement Screen

It may be necessary to refer out to our professional partner team of medical and health partners like Orthopedic Surgeons, Physical Therapist, Licensed Massage Therapist, Chiropractors, etc...

Self Directed Tissue Therapy is critical an essential component of any integrated Customized Fitness Program and CAN NOT be overlooked. Based on your unique situation, we may recommend that you see a Professional Manual Therapist.


Corrective Exercise

Before we move more, me must move well or the chance of injury skyrockets. It's hard to accomplish your goals when you're injured. We will not put fitness on top of dysfunction and risk injury. Our goal here is transform dysfunctional movement into functional movement. There are 4 steps. First, we are moving incorrectly and don't know it. Second, We are moving incorrectly and don't know it but can't fix it. Third, if we really concentrate we can have good, healthy functional movement. Fourth, We don't have to think about it and we have great, healthy, functional movement because we have retrained our neuromuscular system and properly motor learned our movement patterns.



You can't out train a bad diet! Nutrition is a critical and absolute necessary component of your plan. We review your food log, consult, educate, and help you to set up a healthy, sound, and sustainable plan to help you to achieve your goals.

Buffalo Personal Trainer

"Testimonial for Joe Fox Personal Trainer in Buffalo NY. . I appreciate you "fine tuning" the exercises to my physical condition so that I did not feel intimidated by them --- it has been quite a while since I have exercised ---but I believe it is never too late to start again. You took the time needed to explain and guide me through all the exercises and answered all my questions."
