I had found Ted while I was in search of a gym and coach that I wanted to work with for fitness and personal life goals. My goal was wanting to get into law enforcement and be a police officer for one of my local agencies. I had met with several various styles of gyms and coaches. After talking with Ted for some short time, and a few classes to see how he worked with perspective clients, I knew I was in good hands. Finding someone that was technically sound was very important, but my physical longevity and safety was more important to me than anything. I did not want to risk giving up time on working towards my dream and goal of becoming a police officer by getting hurt from an outrageous work out or unsafe physical movement. Ted was able to change the movements and keep the work outs fun with out them becoming stale. Personally, I owe a lot of my physical preparedness for my career of being a police officer to Ted for making me a well rounded individual ready for any physical activity. With Ted’s personal life and professional experience, I found myself in great hands for someone who wanted to prepare me for success.
Sadly however, after I had worked hard and fought for a dream career with only a handful of years on, I sustained an injury on duty that would ultimately end my career. This marked a huge turning point for me in my life and also strengthened my belief in what Ted is all about. For the better part of two years I relied on Ted for physical training to try and rehab my injury to the best of its ability once I was allowed to find my new limits. Ted was there for every text, phone call, or dropping by to keep him updated on how my progress was with my injury. I knew that Ted always had my best interest in his mind and heart. Never was I left with a feeling of being unimportant or not worth his time due to my injury. At many points I had the feelings that I failed in several ways and was not worth his time, but Ted helped pull me back up to be the best I could physically and mentally. I felt more confident with what Ted was thinking and wanting to implement into my long term recovery more than anyone else once the dust had settled on the end of my career as a police officer. I was left with trying to find a new goal including a sense of normalcy and physical fitness, which Ted was there every step of the way. Ted has created a way for me to work towards my physical goals in every way possible, while putting a smile on my face and creating much needed levity in my life.
I trust Ted with my physical well being and fitness goals more than anyone else, which is why I continue to work with him. I implore anyone who is looking for an amazing coach and person to work on their goals with to check out what Ted has going on. Ted has a way to help anyone who has the desire and commitment of becoming a better version of themselves. I have viewed the changed lives of others by working with Ted and what he stands for also. If you give him your time and dedication, you won’t be disappointed in the results.
Thanks Ted for everything and what you continue to do!
