    First, I would like to thank you Tom to help me feel confident and make my workout joyful and efficiency like I never feel before. I really appreciated your time and patience with me in every session. It takes time for me to write this review since English is not my first language, and it's difficult for me to describe my wonderful experience with Tom thru this messages. However, I will try my best. If you are looking for an expert, punctual, spectacular and fantastic personal trainer, don't hesitate to contact Tom. It might sounds exaggerate when you are keep reading this review, however; please allow me explain this clearly. I though I might have same experience with you guys, otherwise; you would not found this review. I never ever feel like I want to go workout...why? 1. I don't know how to start 2. I feel unconfident 3. I don't know how to use the machine 4. I don't want other people look at me 5. I don't have motivation....million reasons I could write down. I believe you might feel the same way as I did. I was a member of a huge fitness center and paid silly money for 20x private training session. I barely see how different when I first started and last session. First time, I met Tom, he absolutely changed the game. He listened to me, explained how I could achieve my goal and boost my confident. My sessions are never predictable. Tom always give me a challenge, fresh and fun workout. You will never get bored when you see him. He changed, adapted and tried new exercise positions to help me go through a tough session. He encourage and gave a technique which is very helpful. I always feel time flies fast when I workout with Tom. Soreness is a gift, but you will see a wonderful result. Unfortunately, I have to relocated, I don't know how could I find another him again. Finding a personal trainer is not difficult, but finding a personal trainer that be honest and give you a "friendship" might take a lifetime period. I'm lucky enough to found one. Sarah

    Great experience! He is always in constant communication with me making sure I eat what I should, workout when and how I should, buy the correct meals and shakes. It truly has been the best experience working with him as he has given me the push I need. I would definitely recommend him for those who truly are SERIOUS about getting fit, but need someone who is willing to constantly lend that helping hand and be on top of them to give them the push you need.

About this pro

Experience. I don't shut out any form of working out unless I've tried it and it really doesn't work. There are A LOT of gimmicks out there, and it's my job to sift through the garbage and lead my clients in the right direction. In my nearly decade of doing this, I've learned so many things about what health and fitness truly is. I utilize many methods to convey and share this. I don't have one set way that fitness and health should be. It's all relative to the individuals needs, goals, and past. This isn't a side gig for me, this is what I do. I've dedicated my life to being a fitness professional, and i strive daily to become better and more knowledgeable. I was also voted the #1 in home personal trainer in San Diego for 2015. Working with all types of people. There's a priceless moment when my clients start to realize the hard work they put in is paying off. Nothing like it in the world. The other thing I enjoy is waking up every day knowing that I've found my calling. My passion. My lifes work. I am so fortunate to have the opportunity to change a life and open a persons eyes to the benefits of healthy living.

    Q & A

    • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
      It's all workable. If you have the drive and the intent, I can make some exceptions financially. However, my sessions are typically an hour long, unless asked to shorten or extend. I offer a student, military/veteran, and first responder discount (10$) I also offer packages and I don't increase my rates.
    • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
      I need to get to know where they are. Be it Olympic athlete or absolute beginner. Everyone gets an assessment so I can develop a proper program. We baby step our way through it at first, and then we start to hit the gas depending on how well the training is sinking in. It's all relative to the individual client, and no two clients are exactly alike. I look over every aspect of health; sleep, stressors, nutrition, injury, physical limitations, and physical capabilities just to name a few. Every new situation is unique, and every situation gets the same process of exploration.
    • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
      I am certified as a Personal Trainer, Corrective Exercise Specialist, and Performance Enhancement Specialist through the National Academy of Sports Medicine. I've also had more than 10,000 hours of one on one personal training and 5,000 hours of group fitness classes. I've been a CrossFit coach for nearly 7 years as well. I believe in doing personal research into all facets of fitness. If i hear about it, and a client wants to know about it, I'll try it. I also attend seminars on different coaching positions (gymnastics, weightlifting, rowing, running, nutrition.)
