    When I decided I had wasted enough time being unfit and unhealthy and needed to make a serious change, I searched for Personal Trainers near my home. I read through numerous bios and found one that resonated with me - Thomas'. In both the reviews and description of his services, I saw bits and pieces of the same challenges and fears I was feeling myself. I decided to take the plunge and sent an email. There's another review on this page that makes me smile...someone wrote about the horror of the initial assessment and I can certainly relate. Even more than the disappointment in yourself in having allowed your behavior to sabotage your health is the debilitating fear it can cause, preventing you from taking future actions. I felt that fear, especially at first, but moving past that is also part of the achievements you'll read about here and in the other reviews.

    Truth be told, there's no magic bullet, right? Well...that's not necessarily true...I consider Thomas to be the magic bullet! It's more than really listening and understanding what you want to accomplish and helping to level-set your expectations. It's more than providing a simple, satisfying set of meal plans that leave you energized and sated. And it's more than providing interesting, challenging and changing workouts that teach you proper form and technique for building muscle and losing fat - although he certainly does all of those things. The key with Thomas is he also does it with a soft voice, a kind and encouraging tone and a patience level second to none! Although I may doubt myself, he never does. He pushes me to do a few more reps, hold on through the last five seconds, and make the last rep the best rep. He never breaks my concentration but allows me to work through whenever he can so I can find my own limits. I've seen other trainers at work during my sessions with Thomas 3 days a week and I've often noted the difference in their styles to his and been extremely happy that I was lucky enough to find Thomas. It seems he is ideally suited to address the needs and concerns I have and it's a blessing I found his bio at the start of this journey. It's been a month...I'm down 11 pounds and 11 inches...I eat clean - pretty religiously, and I feel wonderful. I'm excited to work out, especially when it's a session with Thomas...I miss them on the off days. I've discovered I love weights - they make me feel strong and accomplished, I hate lunges ... maybe not forever :)... and I'm even learning to love the battle ropes! I have a ways to go on my initial goals but I see myself working out and eating this way for the rest of my life. Why wouldn't you embrace something that makes life easier, makes you feel better and opens you up to new people and experiences?

    If you're on the fence and reading these reviews to help you make an informed decision, you can't go wrong with Thomas. It's the best investment, in myself, that I have ever made and it's been an honor meeting and getting to know Thomas. He's simply amazing!

    I have known Thomas for many years both personally and professionally. We have had many conversations about fitness related topics, and I have always been impressed with his knowledge AND the ever difficult ability to explain ‘why’ your body reacts the way it does. I have spent many years trying new diets, training programs and diet pills and never saw the amount of success that I saw while working with Thomas. I could never figure out why I worked out like a triathlete (or so it seemed), and could never lose any weight. Thomas hooked me when he simply explained that I was out-eating my exercise. He was able to explain the kind of food I needed to eat (protein/carbs/fat), the exact amount I needed to eat, and when I needed to eat it. During a 10-week meal plan (set up to lose weight), I went from 255 lbs to 222 lbs - OVER 30 LBS! By the way, no diet pills were used during any time with Thomas.

    One can research diets online, buy a diet book, or follow a meal plan that came with your latest fitness DVD set, but Thomas set up a plan SPECIFICALLY for me! We began by taking measurements and weight and discussed my goals and timeframe. Additionally, what I loved the most was, I told Thomas what I wanted to eat. I hate diets that have exotic food that I never have nor will ever eat. I also don’t want to prepare meals that the rest of my family will not eat. We discussed the staples that I always have at the house and he worked meals into the plan that I actually enjoyed. When I felt I needed more, he would alter the plan to accommodate me. When weight-loss slowed for a week, he crunched the numbers, altered my plan and made it work. Bottom line, he made it work! Also, don’t worry, there are times during his plan that you can indulge, within reason of course.

    During the 10-week plan, Thomas remained in contact, curious how the plan was working and giving me motivation along the way. I have used personal trainers and nutritionist in the past and they all seemed truly disinterested in me or my success after I paid them. Thomas’ credentials speak for themselves but as a person, he is truly a caring, motivational and driven trainer and I can promise you that you will not be disappointed. Good luck to all in their search for change - THANK YOU Thomas for all of your support!

    Initially I was looking for a personal trainer for my father. But then I started thinking I could use some help with weight loss and how to lift weights correctly. I got all I was looking for and more. I learned how to lift weights to get the most results and not hurt myself in the process. Not only is Thomas great at his job, he is experienced in helping people lose weight (especially women), knowledgeable, encouraging and all around good guy. What I didn't expect was to learn so much about mental toughness which will really make a difference in weight loss efforts. I would recommend Thomas to anyone no matter what your fitness goal is.

    Ever felt like losing weight was just not ever going to happen? Ever felt like your food consumption was more of a food addiction? Have you tried various weight loss supplements, or dieting strategies and only to find NO results? Well… that’s me in a nut shell. After almost giving up on myself and the whole weight loss thing, I decided to try one more thing. I went looking for a personal trainer. I decided to go with Thomas, after reading his reviews from his clients I was even more inspired to give this a try. The first day was the worst I felt like a complete failure during our assessment workout. I could not believe how far I let myself go. Then magic happens, Thomas displays a love for what he does in such away that you get inspired and motivated to achieve greatness. He does NOT give up on you even when you may have on yourself. He is a dedicated and loyal trainer who takes his time and really helps the client build their confidence and drive. With each workout increasing you will come leaps and bounds from that dreadful day one workout. Keep in mind you’re the one putting in the work, but he is the one showing you how to do it and motivating you to never cheat yourself out of life. I have so much respect for Thomas and I know you will too once you start your journey!

    I've been working with Thomas twice a week for 4 weeks now. I'm seeing the numbers on the scale go down, but more importantly I'm gaining confidence in my ability to reach my goals. I greatly appreciate the personal attention he's provided by customizing workouts and staying in contact between sessions to provide motivation.
