About Total Shape

If you’ve fought your way through diets in the past, only to find yourself actually gaining weight or quickly jumping back to your old habits, we know what you’re going through and can help you overcome those hurdles so you can finally tap into the healthy body you know is in hiding right now.

Our goal is to help you learn how to not only eat healthier, but figure out why it’s so easy for you to eat unhealthy foods right now, and conquer each of those micro-battles so you can develop healthy habits that will stick with you for years to come.

We can show you how to get in better shape by spending less time in the gym (sounds counterintuitive, we know) and not killing yourself during every workout. Getting fit and healthy doesn’t have to feel like a struggle, and when you have the right guidance behind you it will come natural.

By sticking around, you’re going to figure out which supplements you should be taking, and which ones are a waste of money backed by marketing hype. You’ll learn which foods are best for your body and can help stoke your body’s natural systems, how to quickly prepare them so you’re not wasting away in the kitchen, and which cheat foods are actually good for you -- and good for fighting off the cravings.

If you’ve found yourself having problems with your diet, your workout routine, your supplement stack, or figuring out how to work with what your body naturally wants from you, you’re in the right place. You can put our years of experience to use to help achieve your perfect body, restore your energy levels, shed that excess weight, and hit your health goals.

Stick around and read through our blog posts. We have an upcoming newsletter so make sure you subscribe when it goes live. We’ll send out the tips you need to pull it all together and finally make it a reality instead of constantly dreaming about it or thinking your goals are impossible.

The Team

Michael Garrico

Hey guys, Mike here. In case you don’t know me, I’m a 29 year old personal fitness trainer and nutritionist living in sunny Miami, FL. I’ve spent the last 10 years staying at the forefront of the health and fitness industry.

In that time, I’ve helped hundreds of people shed the excess weight and get into shape, maintaining their healthy new lifestyle through proper training and eating habits.

I personally train 5-7 days a week and spend quite a bit of time on the basketball court. When I’m not on the court or in the gym, I’m either in the kitchen preparing meals or coaching basketball at the local school, helping mold the next generation.

The internet has given me the ability to help even more people and put my entrepreneurial skills to use, extending my reach and allowing me to get in front of people like you on a regular basis.

Isaac Robertson

Eight years ago at 18 years old, I had a choice. Was I going to go to university and get a business degree just so that I could climb the corporate ladder? Or… Was I going to go on my own path and follow my passion for fitness? I wanted to be the best at my craft and I knew if I chose the former, I wouldn't be the best. 

As you can probably tell, I have a passion for fitness. Now, look. People throw the word “passion” loosely around. But passion doesn’t even come close to my dedication to fitness. It’s beyond passion… It’s an obsession…

When I got started in the fitness industry, I wanted to be the master of this craft. So I went into the trenches… Researching and reading everything I could about fitness and nutrition, and learning from the smartest people in the industry…

Now with over eight years of personal training under my belt, I have served a wide range of clients over the years, from different backgrounds, race, shapes, and sizes. Over the course of my career, I’ve helped hundreds of people get in shape. I’ve even helped busy professionals, from doctors to lawyers to engineers, that slave away in their 12 hour day jobs get in great shape by tweaking their nutrition and exercising schedule.

I do things differently than the status quo.

While getting in top shape is an important thing in life, it’s essential that you don’t let your training and nutrition habits take over your life. That defeats the very purpose of why you started.

You see, fitness is meant to enhance and better your life, not to consume it. Staying in top shape should be as effortless as possible. You should never give up any of life’s great pleasures because you’re worried it will ruining your training and diet.

That’s why my motto with training is all about simplicity - creating a plan that fits your lifestyle.

There’s no point eating six meals of brown rice, chicken breast, and broccoli if you’re a foodie and love to eat. I know that everyone is busy, that’s why I’m not going to force you to go to the gym six times a week. I’m also not going to make you stop drinking your favorite beers or your favorite cocktails on your Saturday nights out. This is why I'm a big advocate of intermittent fasting. Combine your workouts with intermittent fasting and you will be able to go hours without food. You can then spend more time getting stuff done and less time eating, preparing, and cleaning.
