Stop Obsessing, Start Living

Customized Nutrition Plans, Workouts for Your Goals, Instructional Videos, and MORE

ENJOY being fit and living a healthy lifestyle.

Let yourself be free from low calorie diets, hours of cardio, ineffective workouts, and unknowledgeable trainers/coaches. Tara is not another "trainer" who found a way to get herself in shape and therefore thinks she can now train a multitude of people with completely different needs than her own. She has a formal education and uses actual science to create effective nutrition and exercise programs.

This is not a 12 week program


Knowledge is power

Nutrition posts teach you exactly how to build your own diet and provide solutions to all the common diet mistakes. Anyone can lose weight eating the same repetitive foods like chicken, tilapia, asparagus, and brown rice.

Learn how to balance your diet so that you enjoy a variety of foods. TOS also offers custom nutrition plans , optimized every month to keep up with your body's demands.

"People are frustrated with all the complete nonsense and constantly changing "rules" associated with the fitness industry. I knew it was time for a change. It was time to just tell it how it is, no nonsense, no made up rules... just the truth. So simple, yet so hard to find." - Tara
