Austin Davis literally fell into the Fitness/Weight Loss field by accident! Until June 6th 2002, he was just your average everyday former professional comedian (he has opened for acts as diverse as Jay Leno and Wayne Newton) and former police officer who years earlier had happily combined both backgrounds into a full time self employed comedy crime speaker, police trainer, and security consultant as owner/creator of www.davisseminars.com and a VERY active skydiver.

On that June day he had a bad (are there good?) skydiving accident that left him pretty beat up and with a health care policy he quickly found out did not cover skydiving (who reads these things anyhow?). Austin's road to personal fitness and health was slow and challenging and along the way he learned a lot. Austin learned that “conventional wisdom” about fitness was tainted by the extremes of either “Body Building” or “endurance athletics”.

So, he took his “police trainer” skeptical mindset and his comedian’s optimism and studied hard and passed the (A.C.E.) certification and opened Fit & Funny. Austin's first few brave clients he took on for free telling them to not promote him in any way other than when asked about their weight loss to hand out my business card and say “call Austin”. Soon, his rapidly weight losing clients helped create a very full training schedule. Austin's client booking schedule full, he decided to limit the time with him by creating a 12-week program. In Law Enforcement there is a saying, “When you get in trouble you call the Police... When Police get in trouble they call SWAT”. When Doctors, Hospitals, Corporations and Individuals get into weight control trouble they call Austin --- he is “The Weight Whisperer”!
