Coach, Specialty: Fit&Chill
Tom has been committed to physical fitness from as early as he can remember. He grew up playing competitive hockey, rep baseball and running cross country. These sports provided him with the foundation for being passionate about, and committed to, living a healthy active life. While metabolic workouts have always been a focal point of Tom’s athletic resume, this type of conditioning advanced when Tom became extremely competitive with adventure racing, mountain bike races and running.
Tom’s love for athleticism has always lead him to be engaged with getting people active and aware of their own personal health. Tom spent years providing a platform for runners to improve their conditioning. He coached athletes through intense hill training and speed training modules, and even supported his athletes by pacing them during their half-marathon races.
Tom currently delivers group fitness training for the Ontario Government staff. The program is called Training with Tom (“TWT” or as newcomers describe it, “Torture with Tom”). TWT provides an environment for people to be active and healthy during their work day. TWT has convinced people that setting aside time for their own personal growth and needs is essential to being healthy and happy.
More recently, Tom has joined the team of high calibre coaches at AIO. Becoming a coach at AIO has united Tom’s passion for CrossFit with his personal commitment of elevating people’s interest on physical and mental health self-improvement.
