My Story 

My name is Lathan Bass. I am currently a PE teacher, football coach, and nutrition/fitness coach. To be very honest, like most of you, I have not always been into health and fitness. I've always loved being active, but I really didn't know what living a complete healthy lifestyle actually consisted of until my mid 20's.

I graduated in 2015 from Coe College in Cedar Rapids, IA. As a former offensive lineman on the football team in college, I weighed around 300 pounds when I finished school. I no longer needed (or wanted) to be that size since football was over for me... so it was time to make a change. Over the course of the next year and a half, I transformed my body losing about 85 pounds!

(Check out my transformation below)


This transformation not only changed me physically, but had an even bigger impact on my whole mindset around health, nutrition, and fitness. Seeing how challenging the journey was and how many people struggle with this same exact thing, it inspired me to start sharing my experience through coaching others. My health journey has had the single biggest positive impact on my entire life and that's exactly why I want to help others with their own journeys.


Between being a former athlete and going through my own transformation, I have personally gone through all the struggles of trying to lose weight, build muscle, stick to a diet, increase performance, and all the other challenges that come with trying to make healthy lifestyle changes. I have done plenty of the wrong things, but through these mistakes, I found many things that work extremely well. By sharing my experience and knowledge, I hope to save you from making some of the same mistakes I made.


My own experience and education, combined with the opportunity to work with so many different types of people through teaching, coaching, and working as a trainer, gives me the confidence that I can help you with whatever fitness or health goals you may have. I know exactly how difficult these changes can be, so I am here to help you!
