Fixed by Fitness


I'm excited to announce that I am now training at Fixed by Fitness! It's a small personal training studio located in Southwest Austin. Why am I here?! To help you achieve your goals using science based methods that are fun, safe, and maintainable. No gimmicks here! Just blood, sweat, and tears. 😅😂💪
I have been working with Steve for about 4 years. He is the best! He takes into consideration all my injuries and surgeries I have had to create a sustainable and effective exercise regimen that is working wonders. Definitely recommend him and his team to anyone!
Does refusing to go to the gym count as resistance training? ...asking for a friend.

People often ask “how do I get motivated?” As if one day they’re going to be struck with motivation like a bolt of lightning while they’re laying on their couch.

That’s not how motivation works.

First, you need to take action. Even, and especially, when you aren’t motivated.

From that action you’ll get results and from those results you’ll get more motivation. And so the cycle continues… 🔄🔄🔄


Don’t leave your health up to your Doctor, Physical Therapist, Personal Trainer, or Nutritionist, etc. Become informed, ask questions, and begin your own health journey today 🙌🏽💪🏽👊🏽💯


Managing pain + movement can be a complex situation sometime so we try to keep our focus on an overarching theme - we’re trying to get the body working like it’s intended to.

So, we don’t necessarily need to fix thing by thing because the closer we get to moving like we should with relative strength and range of motion, the more things will just fix themselves 👍🏼


Stiffness hides a stability problem and causes a mobility problem.

So, if you are only stretching muscles that feel tight for relief, then you aren’t addressing the stability issues that could be causing the compensations.

Don’t spend all of your time addressing the symptoms of stiffness if you’re not going to focus on the underlying cause as well.

Tight calf muscles ➡️ poor ankle mobility and foot stability

Tight Lats ➡️ poor overhead mobility and shoulder & core stability

Tight hips ➡️ poor hip mobility and core stability

Along with constantly stretching a certain area let’s follow it up with a stability exercise that addresses the underlying issues.

If all of that sounds confusing, then come see us so we can help you understand!


The Foot & Ankle are our foundation for balance. 🦶🏼

Putting one foot in front of the other is a simple concept that most of us take for granted. 🏃🏽‍♂️

To perform at their best, the foot and ankle need stability and mobility. Any injury or condition that disrupts how these bones and tissues work has an enormous impact on our ability to stabilize and balance and will greatly affect the ability of the foot and ankle to provide proper gait function to the body.

Factors such as age, shoes, injury, etc, all contribute to a decline in balance.

Fortunately, balance exercises are the key to improving coordination and control. 🤸🏾‍♂️

Stability through your foot allows you to make majors achievements in your overall technique and performance in daily life and when lifting. 🏋🏿

Want to learn more about what might be affecting your stability? Comment or shoot us a DM! 👇🏼🙌🏼


Never hope for it more than you work for it. 💪🏽

Do you hope your pain will go away one day? Do you hope you’ll feel better one day?

…Without making any change? REALLY?

OR, are you willing to work hard for what you want?

Stop wishing, and start doing 👊🏽 Let’s go!


How do we measure success? Happiness is our measure of success! Our pain free clients are our happy clients. That good energy is contagious and we want to share it with YOU! Come and get it! 💪🏽👊🏽

After 20+ years of struggling with knee pain Kim is finally on the path to pain free strength and she could not be more excited! 20+ years of pain means it’s not going away overnight, but she’s learning to understand the process and knows good things take time. She’s putting in the work each day so those little steps leader to bigger achievements with managing her pain and that is what it’s all about. Enjoy the process!


Where do you see yourself when you’re 85 years old? Or more importantly, what does your quality of life look like? 👴🏽👵🏽

Do you see yourself crawling around on the ground with your grandkids? 🤱🏾

Or do you envision yourself not being able to maintain your balance and falling? 😖

Are you moving around with limited function?🚶🏻

Or do you have the ability to walk up and down stairs and sit up and down off the toilet? 🏃🏼‍♀️

It’s not the most glamorous thing to think about when training, but your training is meant to add longevity to your life!

Strength training, with the proper technique, is extremely beneficial for older adults to avoid some of the most common problems they run into later in life. 🏋🏿

You are NEVER TOO OLD TO START! Tag a buddy you want to be moving well with at 85 years old!👇🏼🤸🏽


Nothing like a father daughter workout! Giving a shoutout to our clients Aurora and Jorge for all of their continued hard work 💪🏽 They came to us for some guidance on how to build strength with the right technique behind their movements since both of them work in a physically demanding field which requires them to be bent over or lifting heaving things all day long.

Aurora is starting college this week and Jorge has had great success with starting his own business and has big things coming this year! We love supporting our clients in all of their goals, inside and outside of the studio. Taking care of yourself allows you to do more with each day!

Great work to both of them for forming healthy habits to keep them moving and strong through their daily life!


It shouldn’t take an injury or years of living with chronic pain to help you realize why it’s important to take care of your body, yet too often, it does.

We live in a world where pretty much anything is possible, especially when you have an able body. So why not take advantage of it?

A lifetime of improper movement patterns will eventually catch up to you.

We want you to be able to wake up every morning and live every day to it’s fullest!


How did the first two weeks of the New Year go for you? Did you take the first steps towards your goals and resolutions for 2022?

If you’re already feeling lost, not motivated, or already feel like you’re getting off track - we are here to help!

Schedule your FREE consultation with one of our corrective exercise specialists TODAY! Head to to schedule yours!


New Years Motivation fading already?

You will never regret moving or taking care of your body. What more motivation could you need?!

The movement is your reward.

You are capable of bending, hinging, jumping, running and so much more! That should excite you.

You don’t need motivation when you have gratitude.

We want you to see working out as a privilege, not a burden. And when you can that means it requires no motivation at all. WIN! ⭐️


Life is too short to spend it at war with your body.

Your best body is whatever you reach when you’re living the healthiest life you actually enjoy.

That’s what we want to help you achieve in 2022! More enjoyment out of your life - cheers to that! 🎉🥳


Cheers to 2022! A new year is the fresh feel we’ve all been waiting for! Looking forward to all the ways we will connect, support, and grow with our ATX community in 2022. Wishing y’all a HAPPY NEW YEAR 🎉 - from our family, to yours.


Meet Steve Appelhans, a TBMM-CES and founder of Fixed by Fitness - a personal training gym in Austin, Texas whose staff is trained in helping clients overcome injuries. A quote from one of their clients sums the benefits of their corrective exercise skills perfectly - "As the name says, we've been "fixed by fitness!" My elbow, shoulder and hamstring feel great. My girlfriend's frozen shoulder has regained nearly 100% mobility. No surgery, no painful rehab -- just working out intelligently".


Our last workouts of 2021 got us feeling like….😝🤪🥵 what’s in store for you in 2022?! Fitness or non fitness related - tell us your big plans for the new year in a comment below! 👇🏼

Wish you and yours a very happy holiday and a wonderful new year ⭐️


There is no magic solution. But, engaging in positive behaviors repeatedly reinforces to your brain that you are worth the energy and effort to do them.

🏋🏿 Movement = your body is worth strengthening

🍽 Cooking = your gut is worth nourishing.

📖 Learning = your ambitions are worth pursuing.

📝 Journaling = your mind is worth clearing.

🧘🏽 Meditation = your thoughts are worth observing, not avoiding.

Living with these mentalities and beliefs is what makes life better.

What do you think? 👇🏼


ALL SMILES 😆 today as Janet and Leanne crush their session with Evrett! Everything’s more fun when you do it with your best friend 🥰

Tag your favorite workout buddy and show them some love 😍 👇🏼


It’s safe to say you will never progress as quickly as you want.

Your weight won’t drop as quickly as you want. Your back pain won’t go away as fast as you’d like.

And that’s ok.

It doesn’t mean you’ve hit a plateau. It’s normal and is all part of the process.

You didn’t gain weight and get out of shape in a month. It didn’t just take a month for your back pain to develop.

So, you aren’t going to lose the weight, get in shape, and fix your back pain in a month.

Be patient. Have fun and enjoy the process. Because what’s the point if you’re not having fun?
