so glad you're here

Its lovely to meet you.

In 2014, almost 2 years after having my 4th baby, I was 175 pounds (I’m 5’6). I could not lose weight, even running full 26.2 mile marathons. I was the biggest I had ever been.

I was so frustrated. Why couldn’t I figure this out? What did other people know that I didn’t? Was I just not as disciplined as them? Was I just destined to be overweight?

No. I just needed to change some things.

Everything changed when I:

1. Stopped running so much

2. Started lifting weights

3. Switched to a low carb diet


4. Stayed consistent

The weight just fell off.

This was more than a physical transformation for me.

It was the beginning of my awakening.

I tapped into my own power.

I tapped into my destiny.

I learned I could do anything I put my mind to.

I qualified for the Boston and New York Marathons, a dream I had previously given up on.

The biggest thing wasn’t the fact that I looked like a completely different person.

It was that I FELT like a completely different person. I was stronger, more confident and more aligned with my divine self.

Finally, I stopped doing what I thought I was “supposed to” and started doing what I was CALLED to do.

That calling is what brings us here.

My unique mission on this planet is expanding human potential through health.

I have experienced life when I was unhealthy. I was a completely different person who thought small and played small.

When I got healthy, I aligned with my soul’s purpose, and I want that for everyone.

I now help people dive deep inside of themselves, as I have, with not only diet and exercise, but also DNA analysis, hair mineral testing, HRV/sleep tracking, supplementation, and more.

I am a nationally certified personal trainer and nutrition coach with multiple certifications and have been mentored by some of the best coaches in the world.

I am an eternal student and love sharing what I’m learning. You can find me daily on Instagram (watch my stories!) at @coachtaragarrison

I live in Salt Lake City, Utah, where you can often find me hiking in the Wasatch Mountains. I coach clients remotely all over the world.

And now how about a freebie just for you

What's this keto in & out business all about?

I specialize in the ketogenic diet and I think everyone should do a phase of keto. It teaches your body how to run off its own body fat for fuel!

So... Why Not Just Stay Keto Forever?

Because a fully functioning metabolism uses protein, fat and carbs. We are using keto as a tool to teach your body to burn fat for fuel, then it’s time to bring carbs back in. This makes the weight loss game so much easier. Many people don’t know how to bring carbs back in after keto. Or they’re scared to. How much? When do I eat them? What kinds of carbs? What do you actually eat? I will show you. And last?? I’ve also learned people don’t know how to properly exercise on keto or how to shift things when eating more carbs.

Success Stories


Just have to give my bootcamper Lindsey her own post because look what she did in 28 days!!! She followed the program to a T and was super active in our Facebook community.

She’s currently in my Low Carb Bootcamp and still crushing it and I’m just so impressed with her diligence and drive. Way to go Lindsey!


Huge shoutout to my Keto Bootcamper Mindy for doing some amazing work in just 28 days! Doesn’t she look amazing?!
What I love was that her motivation was more about health than it was weight loss.

Here’s what she had to say:

I did this challenge because I was addicted to sugar! I was binging on sweets and couldn’t have just one. I was hoping that by eating a high fat diet I would feel satisfied and not feel the need to eat uncontrollably.
This has been such a good experience for me. I will admit I was tempted to stop sometimes thinking “why am I doing this”? and “I just want to eat some carbs!” But what I would do is go get some keto food, eat and then I would feel good! After I ate I didn’t feel the need to quit. It was definitely a success for me.
My favorite part….The fat coffee!!!! Yum!

Thanks for keeping it real and showing us how you tackled the tough moments. Amazing job.
