Tom Alden - Owner


As 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 fulfilled his passion for diving by traveling around South-East Asia, 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, his knowledge of the benefits of exercising outdoors and his diploma in Personal Training & Nutrition to form TLA Fitness and now dedicates his time to helping individuals and teams achieve their personal training goals in preparation for small events, large expeditions and everything in between.

In 2013, Tom expanded the TLA brand by opening the TLA Studio in Sunningwell, offering a variety of indoor classes such as kettlebells, yoga, pilates, spin, boxing and TRX suspension training.

Tom practises what he preaches and has his own goals that he commits to some of which include; rowing 3000NM across the Atlantic Ocean, running 157 miles across the Sahara Desert in the Marathon des Sables and will soon be taking on the worlds coldest and toughest ultra – the Yukon Artic Ultra in February 2018!
With more classes being added monthly and an ever-growing team of instructors, the sky really is the limit for TLA Fitness!
