About The Trainers
BS, Physical Education and Exercise Science, Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist, NSCA, Sports Performance Coach, USAW Authorized Provider, American Red Cross
François was born in France and brought over to the states by his parents when he was 2 months old. At the age of 18, François entered and won (Best Routine, Best Heavy Weight and Best Overall) his high school’s bodybuilding competition (Mr. East Bay, 1997).
After that, he joined the Marine Corps in which he was promoted to the rank of Sergeant and trained to be the 8th Engineer Support Battalion’s martial arts instructor. Once Sgt Tort’s 4 years of service were completed and he was honorably discharged, he took advantage of the school money he had earned in the military and got his Bachelors in Exercise Science.
Once that goal had been accomplished, François went on to take and pass his Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (NSCA-CSCS) test. He also took and passed the Certified Personal Trainer test through the same organization, the Sports Performance Coach cert through USA Weightlifting and the Authorized Provider cert (CPR instructor) through the American Red Cross.
François learned his primary style of training (powerlifting) from his mentor John Crowther and made what he learned into his own unique style of functional and structural weight training designed to improve overall quality of life while building a slender, athletic body and avoiding and/or eliminating joint and back pain.
François started his company Fast Twitch Fitness and Performance to fill a void. When François looked around at the “trainers” in his area, he saw a group of individuals that were limited in passion for genuinely helping people and even more limited (to say the least) in training skill. Fast Twitch was created to bring a principle and form first, science-based approach to fitness and performance coupled with top notch customer service and the utmost respect for each individual client.

Oliver received a BS in Communications from the University Of South Florida in 2007. In 2010, he took and passed the National Strength and Conditioning Association's Certified Personal Trainer certification test.
Oliver, Francois's younger brother, has been studying and practicing resistance training for over 15 years and has been mentored by two of the best trainers in the area, one of which is his brother.
Throughout the years he has developed his own style of weight-training from his extensive experience in the weight-room and lots of studying.
Let him put his experience and knowledge to work for you and you will be miles ahead of anybody else in the gym, especially if you’ve never lifted a weight in your life.
