Hello, my name is Carson Whitaker. I am the founder of Protimefit.
Protimefit was started as an extension of my desire to help people to transform their lives through nutrition, movement, and mental health.
Helping people has been my lifelong passion for more than 30 years as a licensed nurse.
My passion for fitness goes back to my childhood, growing up in Washington, D.C., where sports was a big part of my life.
In recent years, I have witnessed the ravages of diabetes, obesity and heart disease, disrupting the lives of people all over the world.
I have witnessed family members suffer because of preventable lifestyle diseases with many of them dying prematurely.
The multi-billion-dollar fitness and weight loss industries are also part of the problem, teaching outdated theories that set people up for frustration and failure.
Processed foods are another man-made problem that people have excepted as a part of life, which has potentially deadly consequences.
We now face the prospects of having shorter life expectancies than our parents.
These factors have angered me to action. My mission is to empower people to take ownership of not only their health but to improve their lives.
My approach to health uses transformational science-based programming for permanent behavior changes to improve one precious life at a time.
In the last 6 years, I have obtained health and fitness certifications from The American Council On Exercise, The National Council On Strength And Fitness, and Actionfitness.
In addition to those certifications, I have specialty certificates in Sports Nutrition, Functional Fitness and Weight Loss Management, from The American Council On Exercise.
