Beta X Fitness practices health and happiness by prioritizing our actions to follow 80/20 rule (80% of the results from 20% of the effort). We seek keystone habits that allow us to build a healthy, grateful lifestyle.

Our priorities:
Health: Posture and Blood Work are #1.

When joints are out of alignment due to muscle imbalance, then we are more likely to become injured.

Often, posture alignment requires weight loss.
Often posture alignment requires strength training and mobility training.

So, all things considered, weight loss, strength training and mobility training are first priorities in order to correct muscle imbalances.

Then and only then performance, power and endurance can be built.

Blood Work (Lipids, Blood Pressure, Blood Sugar and Body Fat) is paramount to health.

Ensuring your blood work is within normal range will position you for a longer, healthier life.

Often, reaching normal ranges in blood work require modifications to nutrition and cardiovascular exercise.

Mindset shift. Just as important as it is to become healthy, it is also important to become happy.

The equation to happiness is such:
Fulfillment/Expectation = Happiness

The amount of fulfillment of your expectations equates to your happiness.

Two main ways to alter this equation is through increasing fulfillment (external) or decreasing expectations (internal).

Through meditation, affirmations and daily reminders, we set the tone, we practice our humility and persistence in our daily actions.
