Owners & founders of Athletic Outcomes, the Cooks are your dream team of HEALTH, FITNESS, and FUN. They met at—where else? —the gym. Brittaney thought Pat was pretty great and asked him out.
He said no.
But, exactly 24 hours later, he came to his senses and they’ve been awesome at life together ever since... The Cooks love bringing out the best in every individual and know that success doesn’t happen without personalized training AND recovery. Their energy, motivation, and support are unique and genuine. They’ve created Athletic Outcomes as a team and love providing an environment that's all about healthy, happy, and fit lifestyles.
Pat’s clients will tell you that he is one of a kind. He could be considered the world’s most motivating person. Seriously. His experiences range from teaching 2nd graders in Chicago Public Schools to teaching adults how to ride bikes and producing some serious watts (ask him which is harder). His specialty is coaching athletes create more functional movement patterns in order to perform better. His superpower is getting the very best effort out of every athlete. It’s weird—we don’t even know how he does it.
He’s passionate about building client conﬁdence, creating programs to support short term and long term goals, and pushing clients to their optimum performance.
His favorite type of a workout is a nice easy bike ride with lots of stops for pizza. His favorite song is Cheap Sunglasses by ZZ Top. He played guitar in a heavy metal band for over 5 years (ask us all about it!). His most interesting feature is his mustache and he taught 2nd grade for 9 years in Chicago Public schools... How adorable! -- minus the mustache part.

Dr. Brittaney (aka Dr. B)
Brittaney is the whole package. We call her Dr. B, and her education credentials alone would take up this entire page if we wrote them all out. And we will, because she earned those initials y’all.
Brittaney likes to learn as much as she likes to feel the burn, and will bring all of that knowledge to you. She takes a full-body approach to health and enjoys working with clients coming back from an injury all the way to maximum performance. She is determined to get you back to optimum shape to continue toward your goals.
Whether it’s nutrition for performance or weight loss, training for a marathon or 5K, or rehabbing an old injury or a new one, she’s got every tool to promote positive changes to your body.
Wanna talk nerdy to her? She’d love it. Side note—she’s not just all books, she’s supercool too. We’re telling you. The whole package, you guys.
Her favorite exercise is a single leg deadlift on a BOSU that's upside down... She's currently training for trail running season & just completed her first ever 50k (and missed 3rd place by just one minute!). She grew up in Northern Maine where she jumped snowmobiles and four-wheelers. She's also the designer behind AO's good looks.

Kat joined us from Richmond, VA (a great place to visit). AO was the first place she went to for a workout and recovery session, and then she pretty much never left. As a former collegiate soccer player and coach, Kat lives for the team atmosphere and feels that when people are pushed together, they achieve great things together. Kat believes that everyone has the ability, power and heart to achieve their own specific goals. So much, that she decided to share one of her own goals in her bio...Specifically, Kat is determined to help every single client, member, or first timer see and embrace their greatness and the fire inside. Wow Kat, that's deep!
When you see the high bun on top of her head, you know she means business. While she won’t make you run 120s (we won’t explain, just know they are the worst), she may make you do burpees (a lot of them… correctly... which are the worst). At AO, Kat creates support and camaraderie that you won't find anywhere else.

She can eat a whole pizza on her own (and often does). She loves burpees. She’s a hugger. She’s an auntie who's obsessed with her nieces — she’ll show you a picture… just ask! Lastly, her life motto is: if you can't laugh at yourself, well then...that sucks.
Colin has done everything. Think we’re kidding? Between studying yoga, practicing parkour, and spending years teaching the Brazilian martial art, capoeira- he's a busy dude...Wondering where Colin is on any given day? Well, if he’s not busy teaching clients to swing kettlebells and pick up ALL the weights, you can probably find him out on the trails riding his mtn bike, at the rock climbing gym, setting up his slackline at Zilker, or rolling around with friends on the jiu jitsu mats.
Colin is a self proclaimed “fitness nerd” and doesn’t care who knows it. He's constantly learning and is very intelligent. So, ask him a question! As a coach he specializes in getting you to move as best as you possibly can and pairs his years of experience as a fitness professional with an ever-growing understanding of sports nutrition to help you accomplish all of your physical and performance goals.
His favorite exercise is the dead lift. Colin once moved to a city in central Brazil for two months where he slept on a cot in the house of a guy he never met before. Colin speaks Portuguese. Say what?! When he first started at AO he asked if he could workout barefoot... Have you noticed his awesome shoes lately? ;-)

Jason is really good at running. He's like a gazelle on a Woodway treadmill. His choice walk-out song at any given time would be "I Want You Back" by the Jackson 5. He's very good at being vocal and has a serious pack of cords on him. We dare you to talk back to him in the same volume.
Sydney is a born and raised Austin girl who grew up a competitive swimmer. She attended The University of Texas at Austin and swam on the UT Women’s Swim Team. Her true love for coaching in the fitness industry developed when she recognized the importance of staying fit after retiring from swimming. This motivated her to develop her well known blog, Spinsyddy, to showcase her secrets to staying fit and healthy in Austin.
Sydney's go-getter attitude and genuine love for seeing others succeed shines through in her killer AO classes. Don’t let her smile fool you though, she's likely lifting way heavier and moving way faster than anyone else in the room, letting her true competitive nature shine. Talk about an athlete!
Sydney's favorite exercise is a pull up...and somehow she makes them look easy. Her ideal day includes working out at 6am, eating dinner by 6pm, watching Broad City in her favorite bathrobe on the couch, and destroying a pint of NadaMoo ice cream. Shh- don't tell anyone.

Dan’s journey to becoming strength coach began as a competitive swimmer for the University of South Carolina, where he earned his BS in Exercise Science in 2012 (though he will tell you that he knew he wanted to become a coach as early as the 4th grade). Upon graduating from USC, this Texas boy made the move back to Austin. Soon after arrival, he became a certified practitioner of Applied Functional Science (AFS) through the Gray Institute. This foundation of knowledge, along with his drive to learn everything there is to know about anatomy, physiology and movement biomechanics, has allowed him the opportunity to work with athletes of all ability levels; from Olympic Trialists and NFL linemen to weekend warriors and seasoned fitness enthusiasts.
Dan has made it his goal to providing his athletes with the most well-rounded approach to strength and fitness in order to help them live a pain-free life while achieving optimal movement with the intent to reach their goals.
Dan’s favorite workouts involve lots of bodyweight movements and only a little rest (all those miles in the pool make it hard to change gears). He is a diehard Texan and when he is not exploring our ever-changing city, he is looking for a new exercise to master. Looking for a way to get on his good side? Two things: working hard or free food!
