Tim Shevlin is the owner and primary Exercise Therapist, Nutritionist, and Personal Trainer at Green Physique. A native of Pine Island, Tim lived on a large, rural property with lots of tropical fruit trees, it was here that he learned at an early age the importance of nutrition and having an active lifestyle.
Tim spent his youth playing competitive sports, and while not a naturally gifted athlete, through hard work he excelled at an elite level through high school and college, where he received varsity letters in football and track & field. The training and work ethic he learned as an elite athlete serves him well in his current role as a personal trainer.
As the south's premier personal trainer, Tim Shevlin brings his life-long passion for nutrition and exercise to work every day.
Tim also has extensive background and experience in injury recovery and rehabilitation. “My athletic career was cut short in college, when I severely herniated a disc in my back. Instead of undergoing back surgery, I decided to try and rehabilitate myself.”
When the injury occurred Tim was studying medicine at the University of Florida with plans to become and orthopedic surgeon. “I wasn't blindly trying to rehabilitate myself, by this time I had extensive training in anatomy and physiology, I knew what I was doing, and I was confident that with careful and diligent training I would be able to recover.”
Despite being warned of the danger by his doctors, Tim started his own rehabilitation, it worked. He was able to avoid surgery and successfully rehabilitate his back.
“After successfully rehabbing my own back injury, I changed my career path and dedicated my life to helping others overcome their own health challenges using a natural approach, combining specific exercises and nutrition.”
Tim has made some mistakes, and he owns them all. In his 20’s, he turned down a more self-destructive path and developed an addiction to pain medication that he has worked very hard to overcome. Life is a learning process, and Tim feels his addictions were not weaknesses, but obstacles to overcome and learn from. He even credits his strength and focus to his battle with addiction. “It's amazing how my recovery from drug addiction has helped me help others. Recovery from any addiction is very difficult, but true recovery will leave you with a greater understanding of yourself and life in general. I use my experiences in recovery in addition to what I have learned in CBT training to help people overcome their own struggles with food and other addictions.”
Tim continued learning all that he could about fitness, health, and wellness and in 2014 he opened Matlacha Wellness. Located in Southwest Florida, Matlacha Wellness quickly became associated with helping people overcome any obstacle. Helping people with extreme weight problems, rheumatoid arthritis, diabetes, fibromyalgia, orthorexia, and rehabilitation from every type of injury were the kind of things that Tim Shevlin and Matlacha Wellness became associated with.
It was often wondered how Tim and his team were able to cover such a wide variety of health issues, the answer is simple "I look at the whole person". Tim focuses not on your symptoms, or your goals, but on every aspect of your life. And then he is able to put together a realistic plan that the person is able to follow. "Not one person is the same, and I have rarely put together a plan that didn't need adjusting after the client tests it out. But I will keep working and researching until I find the right combination for you, and your needs."
In 2018 Tim expanded his programming to really target and help golfers. "Southwest Florida is such a large golf community, I felt like I was not doing my part if I didn't add golf fitness to my programming." So Tim spent the next year focusing on all areas of golf fitness. Tim went with Titleist for his golf training, and received level 2 certifications in all five of TPI's designations. After mastering golf fitness he created his golf wellness program, which combines everything he knows about golf, with everything he knows about total body wellness.
In 2021 Tim sold Matlacha Wellness and moved to the Atlanta area with his family. It was during his move to Atlanta that he had a calling to use his expertise for God's will. He realized that his physical self, and his spiritual self were two different people, and that needed to change. "I believe it was God's providence that helped me become one of the best wellness coaches in the country, because now I can help show people how to strengthen their bodies, while they are strengthening their connection with God. After all, if I am not using my physical strength to grow God's Kingdom, what is it for?" It is by this revelation that he created personal fitness training for Catholics. And feels he is on his true mission.
He offers all of his program online, and is also located at Anytime Fitness in Alpharetta and Johns Creek, Georgia.
