Restaurant Unstoppable with Eric Cacciatore

Clyde Tiger Restaurant Unstoppable Podcast

Clyde Tiger, founder of Fit Fixins, believes that no reward can be achieved without first taking a risk and in 2011, after losing over 50 lbs through proper diet and exercise, he made a decision to leave a 15 year career in the construction industry to pursue his new found passion of helping people achieve their ideal fitness levels. Working as a personal trainer, Tiger was finally pursuing his dreams, however he was faced with the challenge that no matter how hard his clients trained, if they didn’t eat properly in between training sessions the results just would not be there. Soon after, he agreed to began preparing healthy meals for two of his clients. Word spread quickly and within a few weeks he was preparing meals for 10 clients in the evenings while continuing to work as a personal trainer during the day. The days began to run together with the increasing number of people requesting meals and Tiger was faced with another tough decision. It was time to take another risk and in early 2014 Tiger opened his own meal prep business, Fit Fixins, and the results have been overwhelming. In just a matter of months Tiger went from less than 10 clients to preparing and delivering close to 1,000 meals a week. Today, Fit Fixins has served thousands of customers from Sebastian to Broward County and serves an average of 3,000 meals a week.
