Hello from Instagram

You clicked over to my website… Thank you! And hello!

Dr. Mike T Nelson

My name is Dr. Mike T Nelson, a research-fueled nutrition and fitness educator.

I spent 18 years of my university life learning how the human body works, specifically focusing on how to properly condition it to burn fat and become stronger, more flexible, and healthier. I have a Ph.D. in Exercise Physiology, a BA in Natural Science, and an MS in Biomechanics. I’m also an adjunct professor and a member of the American College of Sports Medicine.

I’ve been called in to share my techniques with top government agencies, athletes at the top of their game, and now you. The techniques I’ve developed and the results I get for my clients have been featured in international magazines, in scientific publications, and on websites across the globe.

Maybe you want to know more about me, learn about the Flex Diet Certification, or get my free daily newsletter. No matter why you came, here are some links for you to visit. I recommend starting at the top and working your way down 😉
