Tom is a successful professional who saw himself commuting into New York and working long hours. When the pandemic hit, he found himself working from home and now without a commute decided to do something about his physique. So he took the free trial I offer at my personal training studio in Boonton.
He applied the same laser-like focus and work ethic that he used to become a success in his professional life into becoming a success at transforming his health and strength. In the beginning, he had some doubts, not believing he could eat as much food as he ate and still could lose body fat. And there’s a saying that a watched pot never boils, and this sometimes also made him question whether or not it was working. I told him, hold the course, trust the process and you’ll see. I knew he was transforming just from the numbers he was putting up, and his wife Tina saw it too (which was why she started training with me also). Now you can see it in the pics.
This is what Tom achieved in 12 weeks
Not only can you see how much leaner and more muscular he got in 12 weeks but he’s also massively increased his strength. He took his beginning 1 rep max in the bench press and did it for an easy 10 reps (1000% increase!). Doubled his chin-ups, added 50lbs to his squat, did his beginning one rep max in skull crushers and churned out an amazing 22 reps, and curled a weight heavier than his 1 rep max at the beginning of the program for a set of 8! He was literally laughing after retesting some of the lifts saying “that was easy!”
And after we retested his strength to show him how far he’s come, he said to me “I don’t want to stop, I want to keep going, I want to keep getting stronger!” That is music to my ears, and that is perfect because it’s not 12 weeks and you’re done, going back to the old ways. It’s 12 weeks that kickstart a lifelong journey of strength, health, and fitness and enjoying the benefits of life without the limits of weakness.
Now meet Tina
Tina is no stranger to exercise herself but was new to my strength training methodology. When she saw the results Tom was getting she wanted to give it a go and see what I could get her to do. Well, this past week she had taken a weight she couldn’t even do once a couple of weeks ago and did a set of 8 reps with it. That is an incredible improvement. Numerous times during our sessions, she’s said “I love feeling strong” which is once again music to my ears because one thing I’m always trying to do in my studio is getting people excited about strength.
And now Tom and Tina are both excited about strength because they discovered a bit of what they are both capable of. They are capable of more and my plan now is to keep getting them stronger and stronger. Life is about discovery and discovering your potential for strength is as worthy a goal as any.
If you want to try me out I offer a one-week free trial membership of my personal training program at my studio on Main Street in Boonton. Just text me at 973 476 5328 and introduce yourself. It’s as simple as that.
In addition to being a performing strongman, I’m also a personal trainer located in Boonton. My personal training studio is right on Main Street across from the Boonton Holmes Library.
I oftentimes wonder how many people walk by the window of my personal training studio not knowing what the decor is all about. In fact I’ve had some conversations with some locals who had no idea what it was, so I’m guessing quite a few.
Well here is an explanation of what the chains are all about. They are in the window, and I plan on having more hang from beneath the lights.
When I was training with my first mentor, there was magic I felt when I was in his gym, and I think the bent steel bars and nail chains were part of that. I wanted to capture that feel for my gym and for my clients as well as myself because that is where I train. I also figured since there are several gyms in Boonton, this would be an easy way to distinguish myself besides getting people great results.
Oh and please don’t let the “hardcore dungeon” look of my place frighten you. I’m a really easy-going guy and I get people crazy results. Most recently one of my personal training clients told me he put on 20lbs of muscle training 3 times per week for 6 weeks when nothing else worked. And as a self-professed “nerd” he never dreaded training either. The programming was simply optimized to bring him the best results possible with what he currently is capable of.
If you want to try it out for yourself, I have a one week personal training free trial membership. Just text me at 973 476 5328 and introduce yourself to get started.
Hey there, as you may know I’m a modern day performing strongman as well as a personal trainer in Boonton. Someone had asked on my youtube channel about the philosophy about my training program. Here it is explained in a video.
Hope that helps.
