Here at Total Shape, we publish information on healthy and safe supplements, workout regimens that would stoke your body’s natural systems, and easy-to-prep and hearty meals for holistic fitness.

Who We Are

We are a team of fitness trainers who know what you’re going through -- fighting your way through diets only to find yourself gaining weight or quickly jumping back to your old habits.

Like you, we had our respective health struggles, too. We used these experiences to transform our lives and ultimately helped thousands more.

Total Shape was born with one objective in mind:

To conquer your everyday micro-battles about your health by helping you figure out why it’s so easy to binge on unhealthy food and teaching how to choose healthier options.

We encourage you to change your life and improve your health without making it feel like a constant struggle that you have to drag yourself into.

We educate you to stay healthy in a way that fits your lifestyle.

Our Guarantee

Total Shape values scientific and clinical studies, especially so because we deal with health and fitness.

Our team ensures that all information on the website is backed up by thorough research, testing, and expert opinions to provide you with a sound and reliable recommendation, whether for a diet regimen, workout program, or health supplement.

We provide the latest and up to date references to millions of readers, as we have over the years.

If you find 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, Total Shape is the right place.
