I play professional hockey in Europe and I chose Body by Choice because of the elite level training programs they offer to athletes. I worked primarily with Nick and his colleague Kolby who are both very knowledgeable. Nick set up a personal program for me including diet, supplementation and a strength and conditioning routine that helped me reach my goals. In only 10 weeks I dropped 4% total body fat and put on 13 pounds of lean muscle. If you are serious about your sport and live in the Grand Rapids area you need to give them a call. I highly recommend Body by Choice.read more

I have been at BBC for almost a year. I have worked out with multiple trainers and they all bring something different to the session. Top that off with the nutrition help I have received and this place offers a total package customized specifically to me. My arthritic knee has never felt stronger. It's been an amazing experience, I highly recommend BBC!read more

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.read more

I have been working with Taylor for about 4 months now and I’ve never felt more motivated and excited about working out -and these workouts can be intense! - as I do when coming here. I’ve seen and felt so much improvement, physically and mentally by pushing myself and having that support system to keep me going even when it gets tough. And it’s not just Taylor but all the other trainers and clients are supportive and friendly too. It’s also super awesome to hear my friends and family comment about how they have noticed how much better I’ve been looking and feeling lately since I’ve started training here! Highly recommend!!read more

I chose BBC based off of google reviews back in the spring. Their website was highly intriguing as well as their reviews, and for good reason. All of their trainers are extremely friendly, helpful and supportive. Their combination of professionalism, knowledge and kindness sets them apart from other gyms. Not only do they help you out with training but they also have a nutritionist who helps you with choosing better and healthier meals. If you have any questions about shakes or supplements they are more than happy to help you, however they never once pressured me into buying them. Just going to the sessions twice a week with a trainer and eating healthier, they helped me lose 20 pounds in 12 weeks! All while gaining muscle and feeling stronger every week. It is on the pricier side, but they have different plans that you can ask about and surely afford. Ultimately, you’re not only investing your money into the company, but into yourself and they will guide you every step of the way to help you meet your goals.read more

I have an excellent, knowledgeable trainer that works with me weekly and designs new workouts specifically for me. I have built so much strength in my body that I had lost for a long time, more than I had hoped for as I had worked with other trainers before without these results. And my positive results are evident in my medical assessment - my Doctor is very pleased with my numbers! Annamaire is a pleasure and joy to work with and has made a real difference in my life.read more

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.”read more

I can't say enough about Nathan and Body By Choice staff. They embrace and welcome you along with helping you achieve physical goals you never knew you could. The positive environment and having the one to one with a skilled trainer makes all the difference. Nathan and the other trainers are so very knowledgeable in their field of expertise which has allowed me to enjoy training. The benefits are priceless with my increased energy level and ability to focus more in my day to day life. They embrace the full spectrum of optimal health from eating behaviors to stress relievers and what it takes to become the best you could possibly be and feel. Thank you all Body by Choice trainers, especially Nathan who keeps me on track.read more

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!!read more

12 weeks ago, I joined BBC to gain strength and lose fat. I had major surgery in July of last year that left me very week. I met with Nick and put a plan together for nutrition and exercise with measurable goals. I’ve worked very hard under the watchful eye of Ann Marie, and met all my goals. I not only don’t want to lose what I gained, I want to take it to the next level. All of the staff at BBC are so supportive, it really is something I look forward to. I never dreamed that at 62, surviving lung cancer, I’d be in the best shape of my life. So now I reach higher. Great facility, people and program.read more

Proven Personal Training Methods

Our specialized knowledge of health and wellness sets us apart. 

Having provided personal training for countless clients over a decade, we know how to get results in the most effective and efficient time frame. 

We work with a broad spectrum of the people who have one thing in common, a serious mindset about making positive changes and getting the results they have always wanted.

Your first session includes an 1-1/2 hour Comprehensive Evaluation.  Our experience has proven there is not a cookie cutter program that can be used for every person.

People are DIFFERENT, therefore in order to be most effective you need a tailored approach. Before we can design your program we evaluate your needs and starting point.

The Comprehensive Evaluation starts by getting to know you discussing goals, limitations, exercise history, and diet.  After this we complete a Structural Assessment that looks at flexibility discrepancies and strength imbalances.

We conclude the evaluation with measurements using our Biosignature Metabolic Analytics software and address your personalized nutritional framework.

This calculates body fat percentage, lean mass and hormonal profile.  It is our measuring stick during the 12-week program and is used for accountability checkups every 3-4 weeks. The data we collect will allow our experts to design your specific 12 week training and nutrition program.

This ensures you maximize results and achieve your goals.
