Early Years

Early Years Spacer

Tim started working out in the gym as a 7th grader in Middle School. He was 14 years old. His father hired a personal trainer to teach him the basics. At the time, his father was an aspiring bodybuilder and didn’t have time to train Tim.
“So, my Dad hired me a personal trainer, and I thought it was the coolest job in the freaking world…”
“My mom told me I had to join a sport at that time.” “So, I picked the wrestling team; obviously, you need a lot of muscle to be on the wrestling team.”
“That’s when I started working out consistently.”
Tim wrestled during middle and High School, only missing a time during 9th grade when he took some time off.
But he never stopped lifting weights since he started at 14 years old.

Personal Training Beginnings

Personal Trainer 2
After High School, Tim launched his Personal Training career in earnest.
“I started getting jobs and soon after, I left my dad’s gym membership and moved on to LA Fitness.” “While working out at LA Fitness, somebody recruited me to be the assistant Manager at the Huntington Valley LA Fitness location.”
“When I got into personal training, I put everything my original trainer taught me into practice.”
“Basically, I was literally going around fixing people’s bodies.”
