Tommy Armenta believes fitness is a pathway to achieve physical and spiritual growth. Drawing on his own experiences of overcoming adversity through fitness, Tommy thrives on empowering his clients to be and feel their very best, inside and out. For Tommy and his clients, success means achieving clearly defined and individualized goals – whether it is to correct posture and eliminate back pain, increase vitality and energy, or undergo a physical transformation.
Tommy’s approach combines his deep understanding of fundamental functional fitness principles with an unyielding respect for each client’s strengths and weaknesses. To that end, Tommy onboards his clients via muscle testing; strength, movement and postural assessments; nutrition and wellness evaluation; and body composition analysis. Tommy uses this information to design a comprehensive customized program that often extends beyond the gym into lifestyle realms.
As a practitioner with 16 years of training experience and a pulse on the latest fitness innovations, Tommy sees above fitness fads. Biomechanical precision is at the core of Tommy’s methodology, a focus that corrects compensatory patterns and enables optimal gains while preventing injury. His workouts combine tried and true exercises with innovative moves – every workout is fun, unique, and efficient.
Tommy’s thirst for knowledge and quest to bring the best tools to his clients has led him to study a game changing neuroscience technique called P-DTR. Designed to address muscular and neurological dysfunctions, P-DTR assists the body to function optimally. Tommy incorporates this method into workout sessions real-time on the gym floor as needed which enables clients to exercise without compensation patterns. Clients often experience immediate relief from pain, increase in strength, and overall enhanced connection to their body and muscles, ultimately allowing optimum movement patterns and maximum gains.
An avid multi-disciplinary athlete, Tommy brings a competitive mindset and adventurous spirit to every workout session. Tommy has traveled the world performing with his Kung Fu school and served in the armed forces. On any given weekend, you can find Tommy playing basketball, ping pong, hiking, skiing, or experimenting with photography and digital editing.
Above all, Tommy’s life purpose lies in his family and his role as a father to his incredible 12 year old son, Nikko. In Tommy’s words, “Nikko is my best friend and he’s the fire that keeps me striving. I love him with all of my heart.”
