Charles Rucker is the CEO of Ruck Nutrition and True Discipline, Personal Training. He is also fitness model, a motivational speaker and a Real Estate Agent. Charles has been an NPC for the past 7 years, including competing in over 30 regional and national shows.
Charles was born and raised in Morristown, TN. He played football throughout high school, earning him a football scholarship. After a life-threatening car accident during his first year, followed by multiple surgeries, he had to sideline his football career – which drew him to health and wellness.
Charles began competing in 2012 at the NPC Music City Muscle show where he won his class. This was followed by nearly 20 top 3 placings over the next 5 years. He has also been published in over 8 different fitness magazines. In 2018 Charles was accepted to compete in the Arnold Classic as he was in preparation and preparing to complete 5 weeks out from the show he was faced with another challenge. He passes out on a plane ride coming back from the LA expo with his team. When he was taken into the ER they told him that he had an infection that had got into his blood stream and they will have to do emergency surgery within 2 hours. After spending 7 days in the hospital recuperating after surgery Charles decided to still work towards competing in the Arnold. 5 weeks of training non stop Charles was able to not only compete, but to place in the finals, top 10 out of the 40 plus competitors. Charles is on his journey now to become a great entrepreneur. So he will be able to give back to his community, and continues to share his story of overcoming tragedies, inspire and help the next generation.

Nutrition Faktory is a store I can get behind. They have great advice, great products, and great prices.
I have always admired people who put in the work to have the best abs, the best booty, the best body. After wishing for years to have the perfect body, I decided to go for it. My nutrition and my workouts were off. Depression and anxiety were my excuses. I hired an online coach, and she taught me about diet, something that I always struggled with. I was determined to make the changes, after eight weeks, I decided to find a local coach, someone who could take me to the NPC stage, and now I am on my way to nationals and get that IFBB pro card. My mindset changed. Commitment, discipline, and goals took over , and I was for the first time in years in control of my life, my happiness, and my future. Most importantly I found a passion, to inspire, motivate and push people to the next level. I noticed in me something that I have always wanted to do, to help people make the change, not just physically but emotionally. I want to leave a legacy that makes me proud. I don't want to be an average person surrounded by ordinary people... I want to be amazing! I am a NASM- Certified Personal Trainer I am an IIN Health Coach (Institute of Integrated Nutrition)

Hello! My name is Tiffany Pierce! I am Fit was Coach who focuses on the other 23hours you are NOT in the gym. There are so many more factors than just that 30mins-1hour workout . Nutrition -physical activity -but what about the timing of what eating WHAT you are eating-why is sleep important-stress levels-hormones-all of these things play a huge part in the your personal fitness goal. I love to dissect the ups and downs in the midst of the journey.NOT AT ALL EASY, but I build a relationship with each one of my clients and we get to the finish line TOGETHER. I am a type 1diabetic and also have a few years under my belt majoring in Nutrition on a college level. I have been an athlete my entire life and have always been into health and fitness. I promote mental/emotional health before any other aspect because I believe it’s more mental than it ever will be physical . I also. Believe I “baby steps” so each individual can create their own race against THEMSELVES-“BEATING THE OLD YOU-NOONE ELSE”. I have experienced training in the competitive world of body building, but I learned very quickly that the journey wasn’t for me. I admire all individuals who do challenge themselves in that way because it takes a great deal of discipline. I will always be a student In life and I believe e we can all continuing learning from others . I focus a great deal on self development and becoming a better version of myself . My ultimate goal is to implement life coaching tools into my fitness coaching and to one day soon. Support/carry a program fit for all individuals to gain knowledge on self development,self worth, and removing fear so that one they each person can conquer ANY ASPIRATIONS they ever once believed that they had . Love is key and love for yourself has to come first -EVOL*ve

Raised in Nashville and competed in sports most of my life. Eventually, I got married, had kids and found myself with the "Dad Bod". Working for a local healthcare company I noticed that a lot of our patients were my age, over weight and on several medications before they had reached 40. I decided that I wanted to do something to help prevent as opposed to just treating the problem. So, I started training myself and got certified as a personal trainer. I've not only been able to get in the best shape of my life at age 52 but I've also been honored to help my clients do the same. I live and train clients in Columbia, TN with my wife, Deva and four daughters, Emily, Caroline, Lexi and Tessa. I will also be competing in my first Men's Physique Competition in July 2020.
