The Founders

jt-anaJ.T. and Ana Maria grew up two blocks away from each other in their native Medellin, Colombia but met November 9th, 2013, at an Anthony Robbins seminar in Orlando, FL and heard Robbins talk about connecting to your passion and finding the right person. J.T. says he looked over and “There was this stunning woman.” The two chatted during a break and exchanged telephone numbers. They dated four months before J.T. popped the question on May 28th, 2013, on the beach in front of the Don Cesar resort.

On this day, they shared their first kiss. On April 12th, 2014 they both embarked on a journey to create what J.T. had prayed for many times: a place where people could gather and have fun while they get in tip-top shape. This is how FIT Method 4:13 came to fruition. The name FIT Method 4:13 is inspired by the Biblical scripture Philippians 4:13, by which J.T. and Ana Maria live their lives: “I can do all things through Christ, who strengthens me.”

Ana Maria Tapias has a B.S. in business management and just like in her previous endeavor, where she helped create and establish a luxury boutique hotel in the heart of Bal Harbor, Florida, she continues to infuse her creativity and spark into her business. Thanks to Ana Maria, FIT Method 4:13 operates with the solid structure, foundation, and efficiency of a Fortune 500 company.
