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.

Eliminating these 3 risk factors – poor dieting, inactivity, smoking*

80% of Heart Disease, Stroke and Type 2 Diabetes

40% of Cancer

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

  • review rating 5  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!

  • review rating 5  I came to Body by Choice knowing very little about working out or nutrition. I have about a month left in my program and I have learned A LOT. Andy does a fantastic job of teaching you the exercises and keeping you on a schedule that keeps you on your toes. No boredom here and certainly no room to slack off!! Tiffny has been super helpful in helping me with my nutrition plan and keeping me motivated by going over my body measurements. Can't say enough good things, keep up the good work!!

  • review rating 5  Weekly training sessions at BBCT over the last year have been a crucial part to my strength development and lean muscle gain! Taylor's motivation and careful program planning has kept me focused and allowed me to realize my body's full capabilities as she pushes me for one more rep - something I would've given up on if I were by myself. Up until a year ago, I have always just trained individually and certainly continue to do so, but have found that even a weekly session has been incredibly beneficial with regards to reaching my fitness goals.

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.
