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  My husband and I have been working out at Body by Choice for almost a year now. Our trainer is Nate and he is an awesome trainer. We enjoy the privacy of the gym and the one on one training we get. I have felt stronger, healthier and more motivated to workout since I have been going to Body by Choice. We also have three kids that are ages 21-24 that also work out at the gym and have loved it. I would recommend this to gym to any age that is looking to start working out or getting into a workout routine.

  • 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  BBC is the most amazing gym I've ever been to. Not only is the equipment fantastic, clean and in really good shape. But they also pair you with a trainer. Since I've been going there, I've had the pleasure of working with Annamarie. She will push you and support you and encourage you. And if you show up, you will succeed. In the time I've been going here, I've also gotten to know the other trainers along the way. Any trainer there, will be with you literally every step of the way. All of the plans are customized for you and your goals. They show you how to do things safely and very effectively. This is not a gym where you walk in the door and hop on a treadmill for 30 minutes because you don't know what else to do. You show up, you have a full workout plan waiting for you, you get a consistenly great workout.
