Meet the Founders

Everyone deserves the chance to live a healthy, active, and happy life.  Sometimes that requires a second chance, a reset, a fresh and new beginning.  But it all starts with you, and your choice to live the life you deserve.  BFRx was created after observing that the bariatric and/or morbidly obese population is greatly underserved when it comes to exercise and fitness options, expertise, and understanding.  When you are ready to change your life, you bring the motivation and desire, and BFRx will meet you with the tools and knowledge coupled with a supportive, engaged community to help you live your success story!

BFRx has created a unique training program that was developed and perfectly calibrated through the willpower and dedication of six real bariatric patients, each at different phases in their weight loss journey.
