new to the Freedom Fam? Welcome!

We’re Javier and Marissa - the power couple behind The Practice Revolution

With over a decade of combined experience in the health and fitness industries, we’re here to guide health professionals and wellness coaches to create more income and impact by growing their own private practice. 

How we’re different

Industry experts and high-caliber coaches helping you build an online health or wellness business on your terms

As a PT and RD dynamic duo, we bring a wealth of subject-matter knowledge, strategic business connections, and insights about the health industry. This is invaluable for our referral partners and clients who are new or emerging dietitians and certified nutrition coaches like you. 

And as successful business owners ourselves, we know how to amplify your strengths to attract the right kind of clients without stretching yourself thin.

You don’t have to show up on every social media platform, sell in the DMs, or burn out trying to sell a low-cost membership. 

Our proven method - The Freedom Formula - can be adapted to the type of business you want to build. And we’re improving it consistently by continuing to invest in ourselves to expand our skill sets. So if you want to learn from coaches who are invested in your success, make you feel seen, and walk the talk, you’re in the right place.

Just like you, we care about transforming the healthcare system from the inside out

We believe that you were put on this world to impact others. That’s why we’re here to empower 10,000 registered dietitians and certified nutrition coaches to start an aligned private practice where they can better care for their patients, their communities, and themselves. After all, the system is as strong - as resilient - as the people in it.

OUR STORY

We understand that exhaustion, burnout, and empathy fatigue are inevitable in a public healthcare role 

We’ve been where you are - purpose-driven, big-hearted healthcare professionals who desire to serve but feel undervalued by the system.

We wanted more freedom and flexibility to take the best care of our patients and have a healthy work-life balance. But that felt impossible to achieve in our current roles. 

We were underpaid and felt like a slave to our jobs. Working in the healthcare system often felt like a hazard to our own well-being and a dreaded bottleneck for our retirement plans, and we were constantly looking for a way out. During this time, the people we looked up to the most were entrepreneurs: they always seemed more energetic and fulfilled because they were calling the shots at work and in their lives.

This inspired us to take a leap of faith.

Starting & growing our private practice and diving into the world of entrepreneurship was a total game changer.

In 2012, we started our private practices in Miami, while working at our respective 9-5 jobs. After a couple of years, we moved to Tampa and went full-time in our businesses. And guess what?

Within a few short months, Marissa had established herself as THE go-to dietitian in Tampa by strategically leveraging referrals. Javier’s business was growing, too - he had partnered up with his mentor to start an outpatient facility and grew a brand new clinic from the ground up to $25K per month in less than 8 months.

As our businesses grew, so did our confidence, impact, and level of influence. The business and the lifestyle we had built FINALLY felt fulfilling.

This was our life before the Covid-19 pandemic shook everything up. That’s entrepreneurship, isn’t it? Change is the only constant. 

This was the nudge - we knew we had to switch things up if we wanted to stay relevant and profitable.

That’s when The Practice Revolution was born

We already had a decade of experience growing and scaling our private practices offline, and we knew we could pivot and establish ourselves as industry experts in the online space as well. 

Over the past couple of years, The Practice Revolution has evolved to be the go-to health & wellness coaching ecosystem for health professionals and wellness coaches who want to leverage their expert edge and skyrocket their business growth through high-impact organic marketing strategies. 

As a family, we’re living our best, purpose-driven lives with more freedom, flexibility, and joy than we ever imagined.
