As a young man I was not very coordinated; as a result of that, I was not physically active in sports and quite chubby. In high school I joined the swim team but I was still not comfortable. It was when I entered collage that I started to become passionate with sports. I joined the swim team, started to play tennis (almost everyday) and became very active with track and field. After leaving collage is when I discovered the gym. From that point on I became a gym rat. Becoming a personal trainer was a natural fit because of my passion for physical activity.
I had been in the restaurant business for 20 years and becoming a personal trainer was a change of career at the age of 40. After obtaining my ACE certification I was hired as a personal trainer at Gold’s Gym SoMa, San Francisco. A career change soon turned into a passion to help people become healthier and live a better life. Helping my clients transform their bodies and fitness levels, I found to be very rewording. After about a year at Gold’s Gym, I became their Fitness Director. This was a challenge that I was more than happy to take on. I not only was helping my clients reach their goals, but I was helping new trainers start their careers. Mentoring new trainers to help them help their clients reach their goals was exciting. I then wanted to know more, so I got my NASM personal trainer certification and then my NASM corrective exercise specialist certification. About 3 years ago I decided to resign my position as Fitness Director and venture off to start my own business - Todd Fitness.
My clientele is diverse and I like it that way. I work with people living with HIV, dealing with cancer, trying to stay healthy, weight loss, muscle gain or just trying to be HOT at 20/30/40/50/60… All of these wonderful people make my work very diverse and rewording.
When I’m working with my clients I focus on what they want to achieve and what they need to address with their muscle imbalances. Some like to work out and some do not, but they all leave having given me their all. My favorite stile of training is circuit/interval in order to maximize their fat burning; this is to maximize what I can do for them in the short time they are with me.
Part of being a personal trainer is to help people achieve their goals in fitness and the other is to walk the walk. I am in the best shape of my life at 50 years old and loving life.
