Simple Success Fitness has one mission: To make fitness Simple, Sustainable, and Accessible.

I started Simple Success Fitness to address and correct the gross tendencies of the modern fitness industry. Greedy charlatans have made health and fitness inaccessible and unachievable for most people. A lot of the fitness advice found online today is just too complicated to be used in real life by real people. Most online advice requires fanatical zeal.


Simple Success Fitness sheds the dogma and fanaticism that is holding people back from living their healthy, vibrant lives. I only deliver programs backed by science and experience that you can actually follow and get RESULTS without feeling like this whole process in some unbearable burden.

My core values

Hey There!

My name is Steven Hicks, and I started Simple Success Fitness to fix issues I saw running rampant in the fitness industry. There was extremism everywhere (ask a vegan if you should eat meat and they may eat you, ask a CrossFit athlete about Bodybuilding and you’re in for an hour long lecture about “functional” fitness) and that just confused more people than it helped. There’s also a ton of misinformation out there.

So I wanted to train people and offer workouts and advice that avoided an extreme approach but still worked. I’ve used my decade of personal training experience and my degree in Kinesiology (Exercise Science) to deliver effective, simplified recommendations to hundreds of clients.

But I realized personal training wasn’t accessible to everyone. It’s just too damn expensive. However, everyone deserves to be able to live a healthy, happy, and vibrant life. I was also too busy with sessions each day to check in on my clients to make sure their non-workout habits were fulfilling their body and their health needs. I saw my clients for 1% of their week, but they wanted 100% results. I just couldn’t deliver enough with the traditional model to enough people, so I took personal training online to be more accessible and to deliver a complete package.

As the name tells, Simple Success Fitness aims to simplify the process so that everyone can be successful with health and fitness. I avoid dogmatic recommendations that require extreme dedication and give advice that is actionable.

Here on the site I offer online personal training and educational resources that fall in line with both my core values and my mission of making fitness simple, sustainable, and accessible. It’s my sincere hope that you enjoy what you find hereand that you find your fitness success with my help.
