About Us

Personal Trainer Apollo Beach, FL

When he was born, Francois (Fast Twitch’s founder) was so thin and sickly that his mother was told he wouldn’t survive. As a toddler, asthmas and other medical complications had his parents rushing Francois to the hospital multiple times a week at all hours of the day and night. In his early teenage years, he was so thin that he couldn’t “make a muscle” in his leg or do even one pushup off of his knees. He was trapped in a body that was sick and weak and he desperately needed a way out. Thanks to a 35 lbs barbell gifted to him from his grandfather one Christmas, he found it. 

Fast Twitch was founded by Francois Tort, a former competitive power-lifter and Sergeant of US Marines, to provide those looking for it, the tools necessary to be the strongest, healthiest and best looking person in the room. 

Below are just some of the credentials of FTFP's owner/founder and head trainer, François. 

B.S. Degree: Physical Education

Specialization in Exercise Science

Exercise Science is the study of how the human body responds to exercise and movement. The field emphasizes concepts of health, wellness and fitness, and the scientific basis of sports performance. Students in the exercise science programs take courses in exercise physiology, kinesiology, exercise testing and prescription, nutrition, anatomy and physiology, and chemistry.

The University of South Florida (USF) Exercise Science program is endorsed by the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM) and prepares students for a variety of entry level positions in the exercise science field as well as qualifying students for national professional certifications such as ACSM’s Certified Health Fitness Specialist (CHFS) and the National Strength and Conditioning Association’s (NSCA’s) Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (CSCS).

The Exercise Science graduate is qualified to work and train in settings ranging from personal training at private gyms to cardiac rehabilitation in hospitals to strength and conditioning with professional teams.
