I started personal training in July 2017 with the goal of feeling and looking my best at my upcoming wedding(July 2018). TJ catered our workouts to my specific strengths and weaknesses, enabling me to push beyond what I thought I was capable of. TJ had the perfect mix of patience and motivation so that I left every workout feeling good and accomplished. By the time my wedding came around, I felt stronger and better in my skin than I had in years. Thank you TJ for sticking with me over these past few months and helping me reach my fitness goals. I’m excited to keep using what I learned to continue feeling fit and healthy!
I’ve been a Fisique member for several years. When the club revamped its layout (gone were the outdated weight machines, replaced by functional training elements such as squat racks, TRX training, kettle bells etc.) I was intrigued. In addition to the change in equipment, the club introduced several very experienced personal trainers. With their low-key approach, I agreed to an introductory session. I’m now a full year into training several times a week with TJ. He’s focused, organized and fully engaged with his clients. The physical changes I have witnessed are exciting but didn’t register until I had an annual physical where I was told that my body fat had dropped by 4 percentage points and all other markers were measurably better. TJ is as good as they come and I would recommend him unequivocally. The gym itself is clean, incredibly functional and well run. If you meet Evan, who oversees the operation and is an expert trainer as well, you’ll know why I love the place!
