A passion for the culinary arts led Allan Hussey to the kitchens in the restaurant industry, where he honed his skills as a cook but gained weight due to unhealthy personal eating habits. To help him shed the pounds, Hussey sought the aid of personal trainers, and focused on making greater lifestyle changes than simply hitting the gym. He married his cooking skills to his quest for fitness to create for himself a system that led him to lose 55 pounds, after which he decided to bring his skills to the public by creating Taste Life Fitness.
Today, the company's staff supplies students with programs that focus on three major pillars: strength, endurance, and taste. Trainers assess each individual's health before prescribing a personalized program of exercise enhanced by a mix of dietary recommendations and recipes invented by Hussey. Programs typically come in highly digestible four-week chunks, which can produce changes in body shapes as profound as a caterpillar transforming into a werewolf.
