Travis Cobb, Owner
NASM CPT, CES.
Spartan SGX Coach
Travis started his journey into the fitness and health lifestyle when he began studying martial arts over 20 years ago. He trained under Kevin Seaman at the East West Martial Arts Academy in NY State and was studied Jeet Kune Do, Muay Thai, and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. These three styles were very different in their approaches but were all effective at different aspects of fighting, this is where Travis first discovered and embraced the idea of multi-discipline training. Over time he began experimenting with weight training and running in addition to his martial arts training and began to see how each discipline improved his performance in the others. Travis has taken this principle into each area of his life and has used it in many different fields of work. From his time as a chef in New York, working private security details for international diplomats in Washington D.C., to the fitness industry the concept of considering multiple approaches and taking the best from each is what has brought him to where he is today.
Travis attained his Certification in both Personal Training and Corrective Exercise from the National Academy of Sports Medicine located in Chandler, AZ. His health and fitness studies have included classical weightlifting, mobility and functionality training, animal movement training, Spartan Race training, cold exposure therapy, and oxygen load breathwork. Combining these with his continued studies in health and fitness allow him to provide each client with a personalized and holistic program to reach their goals.
Seeking to broaden his abilities to help his clients with a fully integrated health and fitness lifestyle he studied massage therapy at the Northern Virginia School of Therapeutic Massage in Falls Church, VA. The benefits of massage therapy include muscle pain relief, stress reduction, and improved biomechanical function along with many others. Combining massage therapy with a fitness program creates a symbiotic relationship between the two. Massage helps to shorten recovery time, lengthen muscles, and promote healthy range of motion. Fitness helps to strengthen weak muscles, prevent injury, and better your quality of life.
Travis believes true health is realized when the mind, body, and spirit are strengthened and are united in purpose. When you enter this union of mind, body, and spirit you can achieve more than you ever thought possible and will find true happiness and contentment beyond just physical fitness. Travis’ goal is to leave each person he encounters better off than they were before, whether he is with that person for five minutes or five decades.
