From the Beginning
Joe Augustine, CPT
Owner and Founder,
Body By Design Studio

Our founder Joe Augustine’s interest in fitness actually began on the business side of the industry when he served as a financial consultant to some of the nation’s best known fitness organizations including PowerHouse Gyms and Global Fitness. Although Joe was the nephew of well-know 1960’s body builder Roy Cefalu, he didn’t begin weight training himself until 1994 when he met champion body builder and personal trainer Skip Sylvester. It didn’t take long before Joe himself became a successful amateur body builder, and in 1997 one of the first full-time professional personal trainers in North Florida. Since then, Joe has received numerous awards as both an athlete and a trainer, he has become a noted speaker on the fitness circuit, and he is currently working on the book Profiles in Personal Training. Joe is a summa cum laude graduate of both Bachelors and Masters programs at Jacksonville University in Jacksonville, Florida. Joe has earned many certifications in fitness training, nutrition and education, including the title of Certified Personal Trainer (CPT) from the American Fitness Professionals Association (AFPA).

 

OUR PHILOSOPHY

We believe many things set us apart at Body by Design Studio, but one of the most important things is our unique philosophy toward personal fitness training…

 

Personal training by the experts and nothing less When you come to Body by Design Studio, you will train only with certified, experienced and demonstrated experts in the field of personal fitness.
 
Total fitness through strength training We are dedicated to the science of total fitness through the use of research-proven techniques of strength training. This is the only method proven to produce permanent results in fat loss, body shaping and overall health regardless of your age or physical condition. This is the fastest path to total physical fitness.
 
Your training time is yours During the training session your trainer will be devoted to you, your needs, and your goals. No one will leave you to train on your own, to answer the phone, talk with other clients or prospects, or otherwise detract from your workout.
 
Start as a client but become an expert We don’t just train you, we make sure you know what you’re doing and why you’re doing it. We seek to give you the knowledge and tools for a lifetime of fitness – no matter where life may take you.
