If you have tried all of the fad diets, and you’re fed up with being out of shape, tired, and not fitting into your clothes, I am glad you found this website.You see, 15 years ago, I dreamed of becoming a champion natural bodybuilder and owning my own training facility. I was the guy who took pride in getting in my workouts, but never really got into extraordinary shape. I had a pretty average body at best. Now here I am! I won the men’s natural bodybuilding state championships in West Palm Beach in 2010 and numerous awards including 4 other 1st place wins.The good news is, you don’t have to settle. If you’re serious about finally getting fit and living free of worry about how you look, then I am here to help!I have broken the code after countless hours and years of struggling, I finally figured out the most powerful fat crushing and muscle toning program in the South Florida area. Check out some of the results your neighbors are getting with my training programs, so simple, yet so effective. Some of these strategies were used on the contestants on a reality show where some contestants lost a whopping 40 pounds in 9 weeks. Literally, anyone can do it.

“I have competed in the NGA, NPC and have competed in many shows taking 1st place and overall wins. Competing has given me the knowledge and experience to transform bodies from average to extraordinary! I have helped engineer over 21 first place wins and 6 overall wins in the past 4 years in bikini, figure and bodybuilding categories. New Body Architects is where getting results is just the beginning!”

“I can honestly say my true personality does not match my biggest achievements. You can not be shy and step foot on stage and win. But I’ve learned that stepping out of that comfort zone is the greatest feat you can do for yourself. It is the only way to grow. I was fortunate to have the best teachers guiding me every step of the way until I took my first step on stage. I won 1st place in my first bikini competition! I continue to train for future competitions, and only desire to become better and better with each competition I part take in. It’s all mental. “The state of your life is nothing more than a reflection of your state of mind”. New Body Architects not only trains the best, but creates the best of the best competitors!”

If you are ready to get the body you deserve and have always wanted, you are in the right place. Let the results speak for themselves. We have programs that are designed to take you from where you are now to the fit and healthy person you want and should be.

The Results speak for themselves. What are you waiting for?

“I have been training with Dennis since November of 2010. I originally came to him with hopes of losing a few pounds. I was the heaviest I had ever been and as a result lacked confidence. After consistently meeting with Dennis 2-3 times a week, I managed to lose over thirty pounds! I always admired all the photos of the girls posing on stage on the walls and was motivated to get there myself. At that point he suggested giving bikini competitions a shot. I have now competed twice in the past year and placed in the top five both times! I have not yet reached my goal of placing first all around, but I am that much closer because of Dennis and Elena, and all of the supportive staff at New Body Architects!”

New Body Architects offered me the best guidance and support needed to compete in my first bikini competition. Dennis and Elena are a great team. With their help I was able to get leaner, stronger, and more confident. The most exciting part of all was that I accomplished my goals, I could not have done it without New Body Architects!

Bikini Award Winning

“With the help of New Body Architects I was able to uncover my true potential. Never in my wildest dreams did I ever think I could get my bikini body back after having kids. Not only did I fit nicely in a bikini, but New Body Architects took it a step further and transformed my body into a fitness bikini body. I competed in my first two shows winning both 2nd and 1st place trophies! All these would not have been possible without the help and guidance of New Body Architects!”
