    I just learned today that I could review my personal trainer Tom on this website which is the same website that I used to find him! I cannot say enough about the improvement that I have felt and seen in my body since using his services. I am stronger, weigh less, and have better athletic endurance! Thanks Tom! I always love ya, even when I'm hating ya (push ups/planks)!!!!

    Tom is a great trainer and chooses workout that suits my specific needs. I am liking workout more and more since I started training with Tom. He is very friendly and professional.

  • 5/5 stars

    After years of working out and never having to worry about what I eat, I am now in the position of needing a little boost! Recently I have not been motivated, nor do I make time for myself to do the training I need to stay in great shape. I have been very pleased with my training with Tom because he knows exactly what areas I need to focus on as well as working on my overall fitness. The exercises he prescribes are a great "push", and he uses a nice mix each workout so you're not bored and your body doesn't get used to it! He is also a stickler for proper form making sure you don't cheat and can't injure yourself. He is very knowledgeable, has a lot of great tips and can help with dietary advice based on your specific needs. He's doing a great job, exactly what I was hoping for!

Question and answer

Q. What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?

A. This business has a lot of gimmicks and people trying to reinvent the wheel. Gyms are filled with expensive equipment that your average trainee doesn't really need. When I trained at a gym I was always leading clients into the aerobics room with a couple sets of dumbells. Some machines, like a lat pulldown, definitely serve a purpose but there are too many $5000 machines that don't compare to free weights in terms of overall benefits. Good trainers can train in a state of the art facility or on a playground.
There are also lots of philosophies, and tools that invariably end up with their own certifications and classes. For instance, I like training with occasionally sandbags but I don't think it is necessary to have a certificate for training with sandbags. Believe it or not, there is a certification offered for training with sandbags. I try and evolve with my clients and play to their strengths while improving their weaknesses. So one day we might sprint/run, and another we might hit weights, or bodyweight exercises. Not being married to one particular exercise equipment or philosophy allows me to do that, - using the clients cues instead of letting what's on the clipboard dictate what we are going to do today.
