Transition Your Condition.


About Shifting Years

our philosophy

We believe in you. We believe in you moving big weights - where big is relative to your strength and fitness level. We believe in you living life to the fullest because your body is fit, healthy and strong.

You won't find a treadmill, bicycle or elliptical in our gym but your heart will be pumping - hard - by the end of your workout. We believe in fitness programs that promote balance, stability and strength in all areas of the body. You'll lift weights, battle ropes, fire hoses and increase your strength, agility and flexibility - whether you're in your twenties or your mid-sixties. About The Training...


For those wanting a better fitness experience. From one-on-one coaching, nutrition assistance and the amazing results you'll see - you'll never work without your coach guiding you to results you never thought possible. We build relationships with our clients and we're with you every step of the way. About The Workouts...

Achieve results you never thought possible in a comfortable, relaxed environment, without the hassle of going to a big, commercial gym. If you've ever felt nervous, intimidated or have been unsure about fitness and nutrition, this is the place for you. Using our private, fully equipped gym, you'll be amazed at the healthy, fit and brand new you. About The Gym...

Eva & Henry Dubois, of Shifting Years Health and Fitness, simply put, are the best trainers I have ever worked with. They are so experienced in fitness training, they will scale the training to the beginner, intermediate like me, or advanced like my son. I have always been impressed after workouts with them, but nothing compares to the job they did training my son for his black belt test. Eva not only trained him, one on one, but also counseled him on proper nutrition, with Henry assisting along the way. My son was noticeably leaner, faster and stronger, after being trained by team Dubois. I highly recommend them for any fitness training or counsel!

Eva and Henry are literally the best couple I’ve ever met during all these years that I’ve lived in the States. They are super, so professional and heartwarming. I enjoy working out with her so much! Always feel like this is the best decision I’ve ever made, to start a new lifestyle with this great couple

I’ve been working out consistently for many years at various gyms. But despite my efforts over the recent years and as I passed 40, my weight was creeping up and my performance at the gym was stagnant. Frustrated, I decided I needed some professional help. I found Henry and Eva from Shifting Years and set up a consultation. It was clear from our first meeting that they were extremely knowledgeable and passionate about fitness. A custom plan was put together with my goals in mind and we set off to work. After 5 weeks, at 3 times a week, it has been a challenging and rewarding experience. It has redefined fitness for me. They have pushed me harder than I would have ever pushed myself. Before joining, I thought I was strong. I thought I worked out hard. I was wrong on both counts. If you are serious about making a change in your fitness level, as a beginner or you’re someone like me who’s been working out for decades and needs a fresh start, you should start with Shifting Years. I am so happy I did.

Let me start by saying I am 65 years old and have never enjoyed exercise. Now retired from nursing, my years of heavy lifting and constantly being on my feet have taken a toll on my body. I suffer with arthritis, joint pain, knee injuries, weight gain and loss of energy.
After working with Eva, I have begun to notice a change. Suddenly I have more energy and strengthening my legs helps support my knees, resulting in less joint pain. I still refuse to say “exercise” and simply refer to this entire experience as “A time with the girls.”
Eva has certainly been a positive in my life. Her knowledge about body mechanics, her organization of this entire program, her patience and desire for us to succeed has made my “Time with the girls” well worth it. Today, I am ok-getting better with endless possibilities.

About Us

We're Henry, Eva and Harley

With over twenty-five years experience in the fitness business, our passion for health and fitness grew from our years as competitive martial artists and the amazing transformations we personally experienced. We owned Texas Taekwondo Academy in Fort Worth, Texas and the adjoining fitness center from 1991 through 2013 before selling the school to move to Birmingham. Our greatest joy came from seeing the transformations that took place in our students and seeing clients achieve levels of fitness and self-confidence they never thought possible. We promise to help you experience the same.
