Antidote is a performance and mobility coaching practice founded by Jonathan Francis in an effort to address the need for analytically based fitness coaching in the greater Houston area. As a Soma practitioner, my scope goes beyond personal training, providing a blend of strength and conditioning, mobility treatments, rehabilitative exercise, ELDOA, and holistic nutrition to create a program that helps you reach your goals. By placing emphasis on balance and specificity, you will be given the tools to correct the imbalances created by life, sport, and injury to promote both physical and mental strength and well-being.

I am a 2009 graduate of Texas A&M University and have over 400 hours of continuing education in Dr. Guy Voyer’s (DO) ELDOA, Soma Training, Soma Golf, and Soma Therapy programs. I am also certified through the CHEK Institute as an exercise coach and level 2 Holistic Lifestyle Coach. I’ve worked in box gyms and boutiques but only seek to work with clients that are driven and wanting to maintain top-level, pain-free performance. Growing up, I was an avid soccer and ice hockey player that was fortunate enough to be coached by top NHL coaches Barry Smith and Mike Johnston before being offered tryouts at the NAHL and BCHL level. I have filled other coaching roles in youth ice hockey, swimming, and surfing, and continue to be a passionate about the outdoors as a waterman with hundreds of hours of experience at sea.
