I have severe COPD. After being released from the hospital, my body frame resembled a stick figure drawn by a kindergartner. Life insurance agents, upon hearing my medical history, ignored me. I arrived at HackensackUMC Fitness & Wellness some time ago, and asked Personal Trainer Tommy if there was anything he could do. He didn’t hesitate to help. After reading his bio, I understand why. Tommy is tailor-made for coaching and inspiring “outliers” like me, whose immediate goal is to achieve some semblance of ordinary physical strength. Tommy is knowledgeable and articulate. He is sensitive without being overly protective. He is extremely patient. Tommy knows my personal limitations and when to safely push beyond them.
