If you are serious about your health and you want to make a life change not a diet, please get in touch with Coach JT!

Darrell Byrd

Amazing support system! No matter what your individual health goal is, JT can guide you there! He knows just when you need that extra push or the exact encouraging words you need to hear. So thankful to have him in my life. He truly cares about each client!

My family, including my husband, daughter and I began seeing JT in December 2016. Our immediate focus was getting through the holidays season with minimal damage to our waistline, while also beginning to taking steps toward a long-term addressing of our family's nutrition and exercise regime. By January we had not only survived the holidays, but each of us had managed weight loss while still enjoying our holiday meals and celebrations. Strengthened by JT's coaching and mentoring, we agreed to join Team Evolve in training for a SPARTAN Race on April 8, 2017. We just got back from the event and the entire journey has been a blast individually and collectively as a family! And as a bonus we have expanded our family with Team Evolve and JT and his beautiful wife, Bethany!

Jt is amazing. He takes time to discuss specific concerns you may have at each visit and in between. He is such a wealth of knowledge. I recommend him for anyone whether it's to lose a little weight get off some medications or chronic illness management. He is truly the best!

Holly Lamont

My husband and I just completed our first Spartan Sprint with Team Evolve. And we owe it all to JT! We follow his meal plan, attend his bootcamp workouts and we have seen and felt the results. More energy, less brain-fog, no cravings, and elevated mood. Can't recommend him enough!


"Hard work and the proper nutritional guidance worked together perfectly. I was doing EVERYTHING wrong before I came to see you." - Bill Cummings

Bill Cummings

It is amazing the difference that 4 months have made. I just want to thank you. Something clicked when I met you & you gave me the courage & the strength to actually want to get better. Thank you for believing in me, pushing me forward & always having something positive to say. My life is much better since you have taught me how to eat & take care of my body. Thank you JT for all that you do, all the long hours & hard work you put in. I am so appreciative of you & that I don't look like (before pic) that anymore! Not to sound cliché or dramatic but you saved my life.

Taylor Oakley

Got great news at the Dr today! As promised by JT Thompson I am now off 4 daily prescription medications! Hard work at the gym and nutritional guidance made this possible. I am so grateful that I'm not meeting my yearly deductible today filling those prescriptions. Looking forward to another successful year meeting more goals!

Cheryl Bylsma Penninger

I have been with JT for almost two years, I have been fighting an uphill battle with my weight and self-esteem all my life. JT has been by my side throughout my whole life changing challenge and I couldn't think of anyone else I would rather have fighting this battle with me. #lifechanger.

Chris Sammons

To learn how food affects your body is very enlightening. The more knowledge you have, the easier the decisions are to make. It's a journey and we are blessed to have JT. His passion and steadfast dedication to nutrition is beyond reproach.

Margaret Yon

JT has a way to motivate even the most stubborn of men. Through his Direction I have lost almost 40 pounds and 36 inches off my body since December. I recommend everyone to go see him that wants a new way of living. It's not just about losing weight about changing the way you look at life. My wife and I are closer than we've ever been in the 17 years that we've been together. And thanks to JT dedication to his clients we are changing the way we're living everyday.

Josh Anderson

I never would have done this had our paths not crossed, you literally changed my life…You picked me up from my lowest point in life!  I owe everything to you.

Krissy Ellis

Since committing to the program he has set for me, I am now at the lowest weight I have been in a little over 5 years! JT, I am so thankful for helping me overcome my skewed perception of food, how it affects my body, and face my past issues with anorexia.

Tamara Hale-Howell

JT is a trainer nutritionist who absolutely knows his business. I purchased 2 college textbooks in order to learn more and research the answers to the questions I asked him in his office. He has yet to ever give me incorrect info. He's running at 100% He's taught me more about sports nutrition than I would ever thought possible. He's reignited my weight-training program by having me constantly move out of my comfort zone. Over and above all that he's turned out to be good friend. I'm honored to know him and his family. Great people!!!

Jim Watson

Not only did I get my life back but I got my self-confidence and self-esteem back.  I smile often and my health has been restored.   Being .2 points away from being called diabetic and having borderline high blood pressure, JT gave me the tools; motivation and encouragement I needed to make the lifestyle change.   JT allowed me to become the person I've dreamed of!​

Marie Cowan

My husband Shane and I, began working with JT in June. The transformations we have made, in that short period of time have been amazing. Some you can see, and some you cannot. Mine and Shane's "journeys" have been a bit different, and that's ok. We both wanted to lose weight for health reasons, and to say physical appearance wasn't a factor at all, would be untrue. But, my biggest obstacle when I first met JT, was migraines with auras almost daily, and extreme fatigue. I can honestly say, by day 2, I knew the constant migraines were behind me. We have decided to integrate the clean eating that we have learned from JT, into our kid's lives as well.   No magic pills. No gimmicks. No expensive packages of stuff to buy. Just healthy, clean eating and exercise. We are grateful to have crossed paths with such an amazing guide.

Melanie Duncan

JT is helping me get ready for my wedding and I have already lost 10 lbs. this year! He has taken my work outs to the next level and I am losing weight without counting calories or being hungry. Thank you JT for all your support!

Diane Navin

He is absolutely awesome I wish I would have came to him sooner but so glad I decided to now!

Sarah Stanaland

JT is an amazing dude who will never give up on you. He wouldn't give up on me when I gave up on my self and for that he will always have my respect ... If you want to get fit he is the one you need to talk to.

Nicole Renee

JT has been amazing in helping me break through my plateau and get back on track. Been seeing him for a little over a month now and I can't believe how much more I can eat while still losing weight!! I highly recommend JT as he came highly recommended to me. So excited about this! Hit him up ASAP of you want to change your lifestyle!

Kelsi Vinson

This man is one of a kind! Caring and his no nonsense way of knowing you can achieve your goals!

Jennifer Burke

Evolve with JT is devoted to the overall health of his clients, always there to answer questions, educating us along the way to ensure we can sustain a healthy lifestyle on our own when ready. No gimmicks or fast and easy programs here, he is the real deal when it comes to healthy and successful weight loss and management of your nutrition. I would (and do) recommend him to anyone needing assistance and guidance to get on track with a healthy lifestyle change.

David Sinnett

Thanks to JT and Bethany for all the support and guiding us in our journey to a healthier lifestyle.

Jennifer Nicewonder

I have been seeing JT since February of 2016. The results and one on one attention are unbelievable, not to mention the results!!! I am down 60lbs to date and have lost I couldn't tell you how many inches! The good part is I eat way more now then I ever did. If you’re looking for a lifestyle change for the good, I suggest Mr. Thompson and his staff. Not only do you get the support from him, his staff, but several others including his wife and Facebook friends. Give him a call and set up an appointment. You won't regret it and remember the hardest part is getting started!!

Steve Nicewonder

I tried diet pills (over the counter & prescription), I tried body wraps, crash dieting, & exercised a little. That alone did not work in helping me to reach my weight loss goals. It took someone else to open my eyes for me to see that what I was doing wasn't healthy nor was it the right way to lose weight and keep it off. With education and proper guidance from JT I began to see the inches and pounds fall off. He encouraged me to stay on track any time I hit a plateau. Ever since I started my weight loss journey up to now I have lost over 50 pounds and I feel great! I have a lot more energy now and it's great to go places for people you know to compliment you on how great you look because they notice your loss in weight. It's never too late to put your health on your priority list and off of the burner. Take care of yourself and see results!

Monica Lee Zito

JT is awesome. He has endless knowledge on health, fitness and nutrition. He cares and loves what he does. And it shows in the way he cares for his clients!

Laura Delaney

JT is awesome at what he does. Thanks to him I'm about 50 pounds lighter than what I was when started. I'm on my way to a new me.. thanks a lot JT! 

Brain Jackson

At 34 years old I found myself in a rut…physically and emotionally. I knew I had to do something to change that. Working with JT has taught me the skills I need to care for myself to become a healthier me, in all areas of my life.

Mason Stratton

I am so glad that I finally made the decision to go and see JT, it has changed my life. I still have a long way to go but he has shown me how to eat and take back my life and nutrition. I cannot wait to see what the future holds for me. Since 7-8-16 I have lost 26 pounds and 31.15 inches all over.

Tiffany Batyski

JT is a sensei! A month ago I could barely do a body weight squat. Today I finished my first sandbag workout and was amazed at my form. My legs did get weak. But they held through to the finish! The month of bodyweight squats prepared me more than I expected. Wax on, wax off.

Shane Duncan

JT is awesome! He is a great motivator and always there to encourage you if you find yourself in a rut with your diet. I am so thrilled to have JT in my corner cheering me on thru my weight loss journey.

Kim Cummings

My decision to evolve came from a place of desperation. I was at a breaking point with my weight and I had to do something about it. Evolving is not easy. It requires you to be open to change, to be humble, and to work hard.   All of this is achievable!

Katie McLaurin

Six shows in 2 years (2006 and 2007)!  That was an incredible ride and I thank you for guiding and training me! 

Janice Cheatwood

To put into a word what JT has helped me discover, empowerment!  He can do the same for you! Since March 1, 2016, I have dropped nearing 40 inches! Life changes at the end of your comfort zone... I owe so much to JT and Evolve!   The best result ever was creating lifestyle changes! I had value!! I had purpose!  Changes I made will, and HAVE, stayed with me.

Sonja Barber

I'm extremely glad we met. You are a wealth of information and knowledge and guidance and support. Thank you for all you've done for me, JT. I have no doubt I'd STILL BE too sick to take care of my boys and even work if not for you.  Thanks for all your inspiration, knowledge and support!

Holly Lamont

Before I met my husband, JT I considered myself a healthy person but I learned my beliefs about food and nutrition were all wrong.  Before I had an unhealthy relationship with food and was a chronic dieter. I based my progress (and self-worth) on the numbers on my scale. I fell for the hype that depriving myself and being hungry was a positive thing and food labeled “Low Calorie” or “Fat Free” was healthy for me to eat. Now I'm so happy to say that I am in the best shape EVER and I feel confident and strong! I eat more than anyone I know (which most people don’t believe) and I actually have a healthy relationship with food!”
