Bryan Chevalier is a native Houstonian that has dedicated his adult life to educating, prescribing and challenging individuals who pursue a healthier more athletically enhanced life. This affinity to challenge people and inherently change people's lives started in his early 20's. Always having a passion for sports and looking up to his childhood mentor, Uncle Joe Lahaie, who was an accomplished powerlifter and boxer, he consequently fell in love with sculpting and molding the body through weight training.
The International Sports Sciences Association (ISSA) helped kick start some basic knowledge in the world of fitness training with its CFT certification course. After a year working directly with clients, the importance of what we consume on the table had a far greater Impact then Bryan ever assumed. ISSA provided Bryan with another certification, an intermediate level of knowledge through its Certified Nutritionist accolade.
Flowing through five years working with local fitness enthusiasts and health-focused clients and friends, he also applied the same knowledge and principles on himself and competed in his first bodybuilding competition, 'The Branch Warren Classic' at 25 years old. He won first place in novice and 2nd in the men's open lightweight class.
Bodybuilding accelerated Bryan's understanding of the mechanics with the human body and its relationship with weight training but, most importantly, between the body and food provided to it. The percentage to obtain his client's short and long term goals, greatly increased. At 27, Bryan competed again in the Phil Heath Classic in Houston, TX. He placed 1st in the men's middleweight open class. This was the largest show the NPC had seen to date. If there was any piece of advice to achieve success as a bodybuilder, Bryan said it would be consistency.
Consistency is key - Bryans's new thought process proceeding the show. How do you implement this mentality into helping everyone achieve their fitness orientated goals? The answer: the faults of an individual's life lie in psychology, and pairing a good psychologist with a sports orientated mind, makes for an incredible coach.
Bryan trained his clients out of multiple gyms and was contracted through Carlton Woods, which helped put his skill set on the map. He was privileged to be mentored by a man that had been in the industry for 20 years, Mike Smith. Mike was a former bodybuilder and coach, and coached Bryan through both shows and seared his brain with an accumulation of knowledge that was over two decades deep. Without knowledge, you are worthless when attempting to be great at anything, Bryan says. His biggest influences came from Mike because some things just cannot be taught in a book or online. The ability to get into your client's mind and make them desire to achieve more, because of the fear of letting their coach down, is something Mike excelled at, Bryan stated.
In 2019, Bryan paired with his good friend Tory Tarnowski and created Lifted, an upscale private training facility. Lifted is a byproduct of years of experience and understanding of what a gym needs to produce the most successful environment for various focuses of training.
Currently, Bryan Chevalier continues to exemplify strong values of unorthodox methods of training, showing kids and adults alike their ability to push through mental thresholds and spreading the seed of dietary knowledge.SHOW MORE
