“I initially started training in high school with Tom to complement my competitive swimming ability. Following this before starting university, I began online training geared towards powerlifting and cross-training with the intention of increasing my strength across the bench, squat and deadlift. Tom was always available to provide me with advice regarding my form and goals as well as being able to adjust the program should I feel the need. This led to a very successful training regime seeing my lifts reach my initial goals quite quickly while maintaining a healthy mindset. This was further complemented by the video form review aspect of the online program, as I was not only able to receive analysis from Tom, but I also found external motivation through the ability to review my previous training sessions. Following this time I began rowing competitively at the University of Melbourne for both my college and the university, this required another change in the programming that Tom was able to provide, as I would be executing more Olympic lifts for explosiveness and longer cardio sessions. Having the ability to easily inform Tom of what my goals were on the fly made the training so much simpler as all workouts had a constant goal in mind and this was facilitated perfectly by the online PT programming. The program has provided me with workouts inline with what I hope to achieve, in turn, I have seen promising and consistent results.”
