My personal journey began with subpar nutrition and a struggle with anxiety, feeling a deep desire for more in life but unsure of how to achieve it. At the age of 22, I weighed 190 pounds with 40% body fat, and I was emotionally and physically broken.
Having endured years of religious abuse and emotional mistreatment from a partner, I found myself plagued by panic attacks. Seeking help, I turned to psychiatry, but unfortunately, medication exacerbated my troubles. Determined to confront my anxiety, I embarked on a journey of exercise and discovered the power it had to combat my inner demons. I immersed myself in the gym, but initially, I grew frustrated as the desired results eluded me.
That's when I made the pivotal decision to hire my first coach. In just two weeks, I shed 5% body fat, unveiled the strength within me, and gained control over my panic attacks. It was during this transformative period that I fell head over heels in love with bodybuilding—a passionate relationship that has endured to this day.
Fast forward to the present, and I have not only competed in bodybuilding competitions but also instilled a fervent dedication to fitness in my clients. Witnessing the positive impact it has had on my own life, I strive to share that same passion and help others achieve their fitness goals.

Training with Tommie had literally been life altering. Initially focused on overcoming my hip injuries (bilateral labral tears) and more recently on achieving greater fitness levels. Initially we were training twice a week, and no later than a couple of months into our sessions I increased it to 3 times a week. Additionally, as a result of his work and positive energy I find myself working out on our days off as well. I am a physician in the community and highly recommend Tommie for functional training, in addition to achieving most optimal fitness levels. Have already signed up additional family members and numerous patients. Best decision I made in a long time.

Tommy is a really great trainer. He was able to customize a new regime tailored to my specific needs, while firmly but gently pushing me to the next level. With my new workout and diet plan he designed, friends and coworkers commented they could see changes in my physique in about 4 weeks. I highly recommend his knowledge!
Creo que la vida es un cúmulo de oportunidades, estar alerta al momento que te regala la vida y saber aprovecharlo. Hace 7 años y 1/2 tuve esa suerte poder conocer a Tommy fue un cambió importante en mi vida. Me enseñó a cuidarme, a quererme más. Aprendí que comer y cuando comer,,, que alimentos son buenos e importantes para mi cuerpo. Tener disciplina en todo sentido. Entrenar con Tommy ya es parte de mi vida, salgo con energía positiva, alegre. Me siento activa, con ganas, con mucha serenidad pero a la vez con muchísima fortaleza para enfrentar el día a día. Solo me queda agregar GRACIAS Tommy por existir!! 🤗
