A little bit about me.
A former Royal Marine, Tom has experienced many operational tours around the world including Afghanistan, Pakistan, United Arab Emirates, Norway, Kuwait and Iraq. Following his resignation from the Marines in 2004, Tom travelled around South East Asia to fulfil his passion for diving and spent time climbing in the Himalayas.
On his return to the UK in 2008, Tom saw an opportunity to use the skills he had acquired from his time in the Marines and completed his diploma in Personal Training & Nutrition. He recognised the benefits of exercising outdoors and went on to form TLA Fitness. Tom now dedicates his time to helping individuals achieve their training and fitness goals through the use of outdoor training sessions, personal training and circuit classes.
In 2013, Tom formed the TLA Tri Club offering triathlon specific training and the TLA Studio offering a variety of indoor classes such as kettlebells, yoga, spin, boxing and TRX suspension training. was opened completing the TLA training portfolio. With more classes being added month on month, the sky really is the limit for Tom and the TLA Fitness brand!
