    I reached out to Thomas in January of 2017 after wanting to hire a personal trainer for sometime. I was hesitant at first because I was out of shape after dealing with the effects of a concussion 2 years prior and felt I was gaining weight. My size had moved from a 2/4 to a 6/8 and I felt tired all the time. The scale had moved from 120 to 141. Thomas was quick in his reply and eager to train me and then I got sick. I hesitated to reach back out in late Feb, but knew I needed to make a change or I never would and used my upcoming wedding as a good motivator to reach back out.

    Thomas met with me and was great! He took measurements, mapped out a game plan and offered a drawn up optional nutrition meal plan as a tool to help the weight loss and toning process. I thought to myself... "Oh no how will I be able to afford all of this?" Thomas not only had a meal plan that was realistically doable and affordable, but he customized it to my own personal lifestyle.

    After just weeks of training with Thomas my Carly Confidence was returning. I felt motivated and even though in that hour I was sweating and glistening and in pain ( a good pain) I pushed through with Thomas's help. He was there the whole time talking through each exercise with me. He corrected my bad form and showed me how to properly hold a kettle bell or a dumbbell. He would work with me and say things like, "come on two more two more!" Even though you feel like you are in it alone , with Thomas as a trainer you really are not.

    I have worked with Thomas almost three and a half months know and went from 141 to 125 pounds. I shaved inches off my waist, hips and stomach and am still working for a flatter belly. The results were noticeable. You noticed when you looked at me, when you saw me and when I looked at myself. I felt healthy, fit, feeling great. All with Thomas's motivation and tolerance for someone that started off with very weak arms and bad form.

    Not only has my form improved and helped with my migraines that were being worked on with my chiropractor but my eye sight for nutrition changed as well. For someone that was told to become gluten free 5 years ago and loves fruits and veggies I thought I was eating healthy. Thomas worked with me on this. You cannot have exercise and eat like crap and vice versa. The two go hand in hand. This man knows his stuff. He will not tell you to just "stop the creamer in your coffee." He was able to pinpoint within minutes on what I was doing and why I had gained weight. First no exercise and second snacking..... It's amazing when you start to look at numbers. I quickly cut out carbs, sugar and snacking. I wouldn't say I never do it for he had to fight with me on the chocolate covered raisins but they are finally gone with a much better substitute. I drink a much less sugared lemonade and not all the time.

    In Thomas you will gain insight, knowledge, confidence and a friend. He loves to relate to you and joke around and is always professional. He loves his family and will provide funny stories regarding so and relate to day to day activities. The best part to having a trainer that trains you is knowing you have a friend, a mentor and someone that is beside you the whole time that takes his own advice and it is evident in his life.

    If you are looking for a trainer look no further, this is not a commercial but a success story still going strong. My wedding day was amazing and my size 6 dress had to be taken all the way down to almost a 2. I broke out my summer shorts again and all my clothes starting fitting. My bikini felt a little more comfortable and I enjoy life! I didn't stop working out with Thomas and I do not plan too. For those of you out there that say it's a financial situation I feel you. I was training with him almost 8 times a month one month 10 . I dropped down to 5 sessions a month and continue to do so to keep my results and work we worked for. Life is to short to not feel comfortable in your own body. Call Thomas today and find out why I stay and will continue to do so.

    I contacted Thomas to work with my teenage son who plays baseball. Thomas created a great program to work on strength and agility. My son has been to a couple of gyms before, but said Thomas does the best at explaining the exercise and the correct way to perform it and that his positive compassion to push through helps him achieve the goals set.
    During baseball season with all of the schedule changes, Thomas has been great to make adjustments to still get the workouts done. We will be clients for years to come.

    There comes point in your life when you know its time for a change. After having my third baby I knew I had to get fit and be healthy for my three kids. I knew to achieve my goals I needed help. I searched for personal Trainer near my home. I went through many reviews, felt like I could relate to most of Thomas clients, reading their success gave me courage to sign up. I have been working with Thomas for 7 weeks and lost 14 pounds.
    Importantly:
    ⁃ Thomas ensures that my technique is always correct to avoid any injuries.
    ⁃ Thomas makes every session challenging.
    He makes it fun and enjoyable to train he is very motivating and encouraging.
    My fitness has increased noticeably and I have seen improvements in lifting heavier weights and generally push myself harder throughout each session.
    I have no hesitation in recommending Thomas as your personal trainer if you want to achieve your fitness and health goals.

    I have been working with Thomas for about 2 months. I came to him with a goal to increase flexibilty, strength and explosive movements for hockey. Already I have seen a drastic improvement with my game due to my work with Thomas. He walks me through a workout teaching me proper form for all excercises. Then he will provide me with the plan for when I work out on my own. He always keeps the workouts fresh and different so you never get bored of what you're doing at the gym. Overall Thomas has helped improved me in all of the areas I wanted and more. I would recommend Thomas to anyone who would like to improve they're athletic performance and achieve a healthier lifestyle

    Response by Thomas Smith on May 08, 2017

    Thanks a lot Adam, while I bring the plan, it's always up to the client to actually do the work. Every session, you push yourself, and the results you're enjoying is largely due to the great attitude you have.

    Thomas provided me with the workout, meal plans, and the proper execution that gave me the best results I've ever seen over the past 4 months. Thomas makes working out fun and his constant motivation encourages me every step of the way to just keep going even when I think I have nothing left. I'm in the best shape of my life and I can't thank him enough.
