I Lost a Pant Size During the Holidays

My first month training with Troy was in his True Body Boot Camp.  I joined with two friends, and we all got addicted.  We had so much fun each session, but the cool thing was the results. I gained 6lbs of muscle and lost 6lbs of fat the first month (during the holidays). At first I was mad the scale hadn’t dropped yet.  But, when I realized I was down a good pant size and felt stronger with more energy,…

I Got More Results with Troy

Man, I swear I got more results training with Troy then I ever did in my life. I’ve gone through a bunch of trainers after he moved away, and they never came close to Troy. I’ve finally given up on finding another personal trainer and feel fortunate to be able to call Troy up for diet advice or wish him a happy holiday.  Troy’s the best. “Eye of the Tiger” baby…

I’m in Better Shape Post-Baby!

I don’t know if I love or hate Troy Smith. I guess I hate him when he pushes me and love him afterwards.  I actually love training with Troy and I am so grateful for him getting me in better shape after having my first baby then I was before I had her. I now know how to work out and eat to keep my body how I want it which is so empowering.  I don’t need Troy to teach…

There Is Something Special about Troy

There is something special about Troy that I noticed during our first session. He obviously has the knowledge, experience, and ability to teach. But there is something special about Troy’s presence that lights people up.  My early morning sessions in the Palmolive Building gym with Troy would positively impact my whole day.  He is absolutely phenomenal!…

Quality over Quantity

Troy had to shake me a couple times out from a daze I entered on my second session with him.  He said, “Joy. Joy!  Are you okay?”   I paused and finally said, “I cannot believe how much money I have wasted on the other trainers I have trained with so far.” It’s not just what Troy has you do but more so HOW he has you do it. I will never again think of the term “Quality over Quantity” in…

There Is No Magic in Fitness

There is no magic in fitness; there is only hard work. If you are ready to work, hard, maybe again, maybe for the first time, I recommend Troy with all of my heart. I was ridiculously out of shape when I started training with Troy in January, 2014. And I was a bit embarrassed because for years I had been an athlete: an athlete in high school, a sort of athlete in college, I’d run a few marathons (well, actually,…

It Compliments What I do with Pilates

I am a Pilates teacher and love the discipline very much.  After a few year’s hiatus from exercising (myself) due to a health issue, I found myself really out of shape both physically and mentally.  I had the fortunate opportunity to train with Troy (despite my apprehension even though I was a trainer!).  I was so fascinated with learning kettlebells and his Constant Tension Training theory. It all made sense to me and compliments what I do with Pilates. I…
