ABOUT US

YOU MIGHT BE WONDERING “WHO ARE THESE PEOPLE?”

Trainers. Fitness Nerds. Dog Lovers.

I guess if I had to sum us up in a few words those would be the words I’d choose but I’ll do my best to tell you a bit more about RTC (Rowlett Transformation Center).

RTC isn’t your typical gym, well, in fact, I wouldn’t even classify us as a gym but more of a small studio where people go to get into the best shape of their lives.

We’ve taken a liking to coaching those that are in their 30’s, 40’s and early 50’s to getting in the best shape of their life because WE GET IT.

Maybe this sounds like you…

You grew up, and realized that becoming an adult was a trap! Why didn’t we just take our parents warning? As you got older, you started having kids, got a mortgage and other ‘adult’ responsibilities. What you also noticed, was that your body changed, your recovery took longer, injuries happened easier, and life seems like more chaotic, but all the while you still think/feel that you are in your 20’s.

It’s a bit of a weird time in your life that your mind hasn’t caught up to your body. You now suffer from food hangovers. Weird, right?What you did in high school or your 20’s just won’t work anymore. Now you have to be smarter; you have to pay attention to food, pay attention to calories (you know, those tiny creatures that sew your clothes a bit tighter each night), and finding an exercise that does not hurt your joints. BUT, with smarter training and nutrition comes BETTER results.

Here, at RTC, it’s always awesome to see people walk out of their workouts and, over time, that have lost 50, 80, even over 100lbs. It’s a blast helping clients get in better shape at 46 than they were at 26, training women to compete in their first competitions and help people get in shape for photo shoots or even grandmothers compete in powerlifting competitions. Overall we are people, just like you, we have families we love, friends that we care about and lives just like you, except we just happen to love coaching those people that are ready to finally get in the best shape of their lives WITHOUT it feeling like work.

I’m not sure how you found us, but amidst all the other websites out there you happened to stumble upon ours.  We don’t know anything about you yet, but it’s readily apparent you’re off the charts intelligent if you made it this far 😉

If all of this sounds good to you? Well, contact us for crying out loud… HERE (insert link to the get started page)

Oh, and fair warning: we are always laughing about something (sense of humor is important) so don’t be surprised to walk out here with your abs hurting from laughing as much as a great workout.

TRAVIS MERRITT

Travis Merritt BS, CES has had a deep seeded passion in fitness since the age of 9! Always developing new routines, exercises and skills to improve him-self physically in sports and in overall health and wellbeing…. Blah blah blah

Ok so you’ve heard of all of this before from other personal trainers but who is this guy?

I’ve read so many fitness professional bios that I honestly have gotten sick of the same boring monotonous filler so I’ll shoot you straight and tell you first want I’m not…

I’m NOT your casual weight loss trainer, if you’re just looking to just get a trainer so that you can fit into the social norm of a “Jersey” housewife stuff then I’ll help you find a trainer that fits that mold… but it won’t be me. I can’t handle watching that stuff anyways.

Now what am I and what do I love about training?

Fixing joint injuries

I seem to have found that I’m a big nerd (but I prefer the term “Intellectual Badass”) with this, in fact after completing my Bachelors I have continued obtained several different certs to help me even understand joint motion further. In fact it not uncommon to find me up till 2am doing reading and research on joint motions. Ya…. I’m a nerd

But here is my reasoning, if you can’t move well then we getting you stronger and looking good becomes very difficult and in many cases frustrating. OR here is the other thing that I seem to get quite often. Person looks like a super model but is so tight that can’t put on a seat belt, now that’s not fun!

Sculpting bodies

Face it if your reading this then your somewhat interested in what I have to say about looks. I’m not going to lie that it’s a big part on why I got into this world and I’m sure it’s a BIG reason on why you are looking to get into this. Its ok to look good! So if you need help with getting your body to look like a Greek god, let’s do work!

BUT…

Ohhh, I don’t know, say your goal is to look really hot and post pictures up on facebook to make your ex feel stupid for hooking up with that soccer player, you can count me in on that too 😉

Becoming stronger

So cool, you can move like an movie star and you look like a greek god! Now that you look and move better its always nice to know that you have the strength to knock down a door to a burning building and save a bunch of puppies from an animal shelter… who wouldn’t be impressed by that!

With all that I must say that I love what I do and I love to have fun with it. You’ll often find me laughing with my clients in between sets while discussing life from the philosopher Will Ferrell. On the flip side though I do know when work needs to be done and we plug in that iPod, crank up that music and rock out some amazing workouts.

I’m a nerd that happens to have some muscles and an innate ability to get people rocking some cool fitness triumphs.

If you come with an open mind and a sense of humor you’ll have fun with this community and enjoy time with the quirky big nerd of training that eats, breaths and shirts fitness (hope you caught that typo 😉
