Tristan is one of the best out there, and I'm incredibly grateful for all of his help. During our first session he was caring and thorough in learning about all of my long term aches and pains, as well as identifying troubled spots I wasn't as aware of. By the end of the session, I had already started to see minor but very promising results. Tristan's holistic approach to alignment and strength training allowed me to see results I had frankly given up on after seeing so many years. Over the course of my sessions, my back and shoulder regained full mobility and the pain subsided. I'm now feeling better than ever, thanks to Tristan!

Tristan has guided me along a path towards greater strength, better posture, and overall health for the past couple years. I highly recommend him to everyone.

I started working with Tristan on a twice a week basis for about 2 years to address a weakness on my left side following the removal of a subdural hematoma several years ago. A retired physician, I suffered not only from weakness on the left side, but also balance (proprioceptive) problems. My surgeon prescribed physical therapy, but the waiting list was over a month long. I knew and respected Tristan at my gym and asked if he could help me. He developed a custom set of exercises to address my specific needs, treating my difficulties with knowledge and persistence and functioning as both physical therapist and personal trainer. Following Tristan’s regime I significantly improved and eventually recovered. Now, several years later, I continue to perform the exercises he prescribed. I would highly recommend Tristan without any reservations. David Schindler MD

Tristan has been great for my holistic training for over 5 years. He has helped me develop my core strength and flexibility to complement my outside athletic interests which include ice hockey, golf and hiking

Tristan has been my personal trainer at the Olympic Club since 2018, and I cannot be any happier with our sessions. I suffer from chronic back pain, and Tristan is always mindful of my limitations and applies his immense knowledge from rehabilitation modalities to our workouts. Our workouts change week to week, so that nothing gets repetitive, all parts of the body are challenged. Highly recommended!
