    Having a personal trainer, like Tim, has allowed me grater fitness gains than working out alone. I think each one of us, unless you are an advanced athlete, need some type of programming, and he structured a plan based on my goals plus has built a way of monitoring, from how effective the exercises are, to technique and stages in my fitness journey.
    He is a great motivator, good listener, helps you get outside your comfort zone so you can learn and grow and communicates well. I highly recommend him.

    Tim, is simply the best, he is my personal trainer and he understands his business better than anyone else I have encountered. I am, much to my surprise, a senior citizen and he works with me with my special needs in mind, but he does not cuddle me. I am healthier and happier now than I have been in years. Thanks Tim !!

    I won the opportunity to participate in a 12 week fitness program. Tim was one of our 2 trainers. He encouraged us to learn more by giving reference web sites and handouts. He taught and reinforced good form with our exercises. Humorous, and encouraging, he made it fun to complete a workout set. He will push you, and you might have to speak up if you have true limitations. Tim has a great attitude and personality and this alone will improve your own motivation and health if you work with him!

    I won a chance to be in a group fitness program. Tim was one of our two trainers. We worked together weekly for 12 weeks. Tim is very good at coaching correct form for exercises. Funny and encouraging, he makes it challenging but worth it to complete a workout set. Tim will push you, and you might have to speak up about any limitations you really do have. He is knowledgeable and has a great personality. Just his attitude can improve your motivation and health!

    Tim is amazing! He understands why people succeed or fail in their pursuit of personal health. He is a great motivator and coach. We connected quickly and I trust him completely!
    After a year of intense back pain, I was scheduled for back surgery. I needed a wheelchair at airports just to get between gates. I felt my whole body had atrophied. Within two months with Tim, my physical life was restored. I had no back pain and I could walk, run and ride my recumbent trike an hour a day! Tim is an expert in the physical, emotional and nutritional aspects of wellness.
    I can't imagine a better Personal Trainer anywhere...he is THAT good!!
