Director of IT
Doug is the most important person at our company that no one ever talks about. Databases, server up time, and terminal commands keep Doug on his toes to make sure your orders, questions, and our website are up, on time, and free of bugs. When Doug is not elbow deep in code, you will find him in his Jeep and enjoying life with his wife and 3 kids in Moab. When you are cruising our quick webpages or submitted an order just know that Doug did that.

Oh, where to start...our day is not the same without Natasha. She takes care of you as well as us. While she is making sure your orders are correct she is putting candles on our birthday cakes. Natasha absolutely loves her kids and country music. She has her own weight loss story and loves to share with people how they can live their ideal shape like she is living hers. If there is a problem, Tash will solve it. Check out our deals, while her team resolves it!
If content is king, meet your king of content...well, you know what I mean. Scott pretty much does it all and by all we mean, we sit around watching him do magic (literally--he pulled a quarter out of my ear!) Scott is an SEO master, a sensei of optimization, and a content masterchef. If you see a word spelled wrong please email him. He will send you a cookie (not really).
Randy is a man of many, many words. He uses those words to educate us on all things fitness and weight loss. Randy is a sci-fi fanatic, but keeps things democratic. Randy is always prepared to share a weird new story or an interesting fact. Online gaming and hanging with friends are what keep him busy when he is not writing and publishing his sonnets.
Marilyn is the nicest person you have ever met. She is the mama of 4 kids, one who just got married! She lives her life on the edge and is always having fun. She tweets, Facebooks, tumbs, and grams instantly. She's your best friend because she decides who wins the give-a-ways. (Yes she will take bribes!)
Bruce Banner (The Hulk)
Wes absolutely loves fitness! He actually smiles less while at work because he is not lifting. Just kidding, he is never not smiling. Wes and his wife welcomed a new baby girl into their family this year. Wes can do 3 muscle ups in a row, while smiling, without taking any pre-workout. Wes is just all around awesome!
Tyler McColluch is a master of all things cinematic. In fact, he has a bigger bag of tricks than he admits. Tyler is engaged to a wonderful girl and will tie the knot in January. Send him some love! When not behind the camera he spends his time filming...behind a camera... Tyler also loves to ride the flowrider, hike in the mountains, and stare into the beautiful eyes of his bride-to-be.
Two roads diverged in a wood, and Lizzy —Lizzy is always taking the one less traveled by, and that has made formed Lizzy into the quirky creative character that builds our graphics.

Shelby has a heart of gold. A day in the life of Shelby: school, boys, and work. Shelby is the type of friend that will give you $5 and never ask for it back. Say hi when she takes your order, she is really good at it.
While Angie doesn't have a 'mad' bone in her body, she does wear a lot of hats around here. Angie responds to your emails, packs and ships packages, takes customer service calls, and even writes a blog post or two or five every now and then. You'll know when you are talking to Angie cause she sounds like an angel.
