Making healthy lifestyle changes allows you to have greater control of your health and wellbeing.

FirstLine Therapy is a specialized therapeutic lifestyle program unlike any other.

It targets the underlying causes of chronic illness by incorporating a sensible eating plan, physical activity, nutritional support, and stress management

The FirstLine Therapy Difference:

  • FirstLine Therapy is not just a weight-loss program. It’s a personalized lifestyle medicine program designed to help you achieve optimal health.
  • The FirstLine Therapy eating plan is different. Most programs are focused on lowfat diets, but FirstLine Therapy emphasizes the importance of low-glycemic, whole foods, and plant based eating.
  • FirstLine Therapy incorporates medical foods and other nutritional support. The appropriate use of medical foods and other nutritional support may enhance program effectiveness and may help shorten the time it takes for you to achieve your goals.
  • FirstLine Therapy has been demonstrated to be effective in clinical studies. Most lifestyle medicine programs lack clinical evidence of effectiveness. Clinical studies sponsored by Metagenics have demonstrated impressive results for patients who combine targeted nutritional support with a structured lifestyle education program.

What does “better health” mean to you?

Most people want more energy, mental clarity, full physical function, and absence of disease through the aging process.

Illness does not have to be a normal part of aging!

  • 5 star review  Far and away the best gym and personal training in West Michigan. Nick and company put in a lot of work to make sure you have a complete plan (workout, nutrition, supplementation) tailored to your specific needs. I've worked with Nick, Nathan, and Tiffny. They (and the rest of the team) are awesome! The facilities are first class and I love the private gym experience. I highly recommend BBCT to everybody. Tell them Austin sent you!

  • 5 star review  As a “senior citizen” I was troubled with various signs of aging including lethargy, weight gain, dangerous falls and lower back pain when walking or doing chores. Nathan at Body by Choice has reversed all these symptoms and has given me a new lease on life. I was never comfortable in a gym environment and had no idea what I should do. Nathan and the “family” at Body by Choice erased my self-consciousness and made the experience something to look forward to. As a bonus, terrific weight and nutrition coaching is available from Tiffny, as well as on-line coaching. The change in my health is worth every penny. “When you have your health, you have everything.”

  • 5 star review  The knowledge that Nick & the rest of the trainers bring is something beyond any gym I have ever been a part of. Their genuine interest in helping accomplish your health & fitness goals is also on a level that is beyond what most gyms/trainers offer. They are truly the best of the best & highly recommend if you're looking to change your lifestyle.

Hand sanitizer is required when entering the building, and it’s right by the door and throughout the building.

Please bring your own water bottle, as the kitchen is not available to customers at this time.

Masks are encouraged; employees will wear them at all times.

Employees will disinfect each piece of equipment after each use, and the entire building is thoroughly cleaned regularly.
