My Story

I graduated Magna Cum Laude in Statistics & Quantitative Modeling from Baruch College and began working a 9 to 5 job.

 

After years of sitting in front of a computer 12hrs per day a doctor diagnosed me with Degenerative Disc Disease and said I'd be in pain the rest of my life and I should never lift weights, run, or jump again.

After fixing my back, I started working a second job as a Personal Trainer at Blink and I discovered my passion for training others. After 6 months of hustling two jobs, I left my 9 to 5 to work as a Personal Trainer and received the New Trainer of the Year award at Equinox.

I invested thousands of dollars and hundreds of hours into my education to earn multiple certifications.

Certified Personal Trainer (NASM-CPT)

Certified Strength Coach (NSCA-CSCS)

Corrective Exercise Specialist (NASM-CES)

Certified Nutrition Coach (Pn2)

Equinox Personal Trainer (160+ Hours of Equinox Institute Training)

TRX Certified Trainer (STC)

Now I'm an independent fitness entrepreneur living my life's purpose of empowering others.

I'm a coach because I've felt hopeless and powerless on my journey and I want to help others so they never have to feel the way I felt before.

I know how to get you into shape and I have the testimonials to prove it.

How I Can Help

Lifestyle & Nutrition Improvements

My body never resembled the effort I was putting in the gym until I adopted the lifestyle and nutrition habits necessary to make a change.

 

Self destructive behaviors and a poor mindset left me feeling and looking mediocre at best.

I now have a simple process for how to improve lifestyle and nutrition habits. I did it myself and I can show you how to do it too.

Save You Time & Effort

I can give you my 10+ years of experience in only 3 months.

 

I've tried several different training styles and many various diets for myself and my clients. I've tried everything so you don't have to.

 

My job is to simplify the process and focus your efforts on what really matters to make the changes you want.

Injury Rehab & Prevention

For years I thought I was strong but my joints hurt and I was terribly inflexible. You're only as strong as your weakest link. 

I've had low back pain, shoulder pain, and knee pain and I've healed myself and over a dozen clients who have returned to pain-free daily living.

After receiving a diagnosis from your doctor, I will work with you to create a training program and lifestyle that allows for pain-free living.

What Clients Have to Say

_Tom Pfeiffer has been my personal train

"Tom Pfeiffer has been my personal trainer for the past 3 years. I lost 10 pound in the first 3 months by working out with him and following his instructions. With minor changes to my vegetarian diet and making sure I had protein in my diet I was able to lose weight.

 

Tom's motivation and support has helped me not only lose weight, but also to grow in my professional career, impromptu speaking, as well as deal with tough times. He is now my mentor and a close friend of mine. I highly recommend Tom Pfeiffer as he is certified and knowledgeable. You will get more than what you asked for. Give it a try now."

"Before starting with Tom, I wasn't as motivated - my workouts would be short and all over the place and I wasn't pushing myself. Also, I wasn't focusing on food at all - now I know how much food I need to actually eat to build any kind of muscle.

 

After slacking off for a few months I was seeing myself really skinny and I didn't like it. I wanted to get back into a routine, and to try to achieve the physique I've always wanted. Tom has really helped me build a plan that has translated into concrete results. We have created a routine, I've learnt about certain key movements, and I've developed the right mindset when it comes to diet.


If you know you want to work with a fitness professional, definitely go with Tom! Not only is he extremely reliable, passionate, and smart, but he really cares, and this is shown through the plans and follow-ups he does. He also adapts to different situations extremely well, so if you need certain flexibility, Tom is the one. I've been able to see great results and I've enjoyed working with Tom."

"Working out with Tom has been transformational for me! I've been around the block with trainers and diet fads in the past, but Tom helped me reframe how I looked at my fitness goals and helped me see a bigger vision for myself and where I want to be in the future. While most trainers try and get you to become reliant upon them, Tom has helped empower me to feel like I'm in control of my journey and is just there to equip me with the tools, resources, and skills I need to get where I'm going. He's patient, focused, encouraging, and I'm grateful for the impact working with him has had on my life."

"After doing the same workouts every week, I was in a rut, losing motivation, and not seeing results. Enter Tommy. Coaching with Tommy has held me accountable, and made working out both fun and dynamic. It’s not just better exercise - I’m drinking less, sleeping more, and eating healthier. The results are measurable - I’m faster, leaner, stronger, and happier since I started. If you’re not seeing results from your exercise routine, talk to Tommy."

"I met Tom in 2019 when I was starting my new lifestyle journey. Tom was super approachable, understanding and helpful when helping me with a new meal plan. Tom is very empathetic so he truly cares about his clients' well-being. If you're looking to start a new lifestyle, a new fitness journey and need help, I highly recommend Tom Pfeiffer!"

- Danielle I.

"I have tried working out with a trainer many times but never stuck with it.  That all changed with Tom.  He made workouts fun, with different games and constant jokes.  Beyond that, I saw and felt the results which just further motivated me.  Tom is the only reason I am still actively working out and enjoying it instead of being a fat lazy stoner."

"Have loved working with Tom so far. Not only because I see positive physical results, but also because he's fun to be around and doesn't make fitness boring or too serious. I have gained a ton of confidence from working with him, as well as knowledge about food and nutrition. Sign up for training with Tom, your glutes will thank you."

"Before working with Tom, I had minimal experience in the gym — I've been lean and lanky for many years, never thinking I should build muscle. I got quite bored of running and decided it was time to get fit. From the moment we began working together, Tom was attentive, knowledgeable, and fun to work with. Not only am I much more confident at the gym, but in a mere month of working together, I've seen very noticeable results. Tom's approach is a holistic one, focusing not only on exercises but on diet and lifestyle in general. He pushed me to excel physically, and also ensured I had enough time to recover. If you're looking for guidance, support, and expertise, Tom is your guy. I couldn't recommend him more highly."

"After a year of not having a structured, effective workout routine, I was feeling the impacts - weight gain, lack of flexibility & mobility and bad posture. I was just plain out of shape. Working with Tom was immediately motivating and transformational. His energy and expertise is contagious and I immediately felt that I had made the right choice. Over a six month period, Tom has helped me reset my posture, improve my strength and mobility and find the internal motivation to improve my overall well being. If someone asked me if Tom was the right trainer for them, I would tell them not to hesitate and get going immediately!"

"Like many people, 2020 was a year stuck inside and therefore resulted in "Covid Weight". I was going to the gym but not seeing any results both in muscle development or weight loss. I had seen Tom on instagram sharing tips so I reached out. 
 

Working with Tom has been great. I have learned a set of tools that I can use any time and anywhere. After 8 weeks I am seeing a difference in my body and the weight loss has begun. I think the greatest thing is that Tom helps you develop a "healthy lifestyle" that will continue with you. And his positive personality really inspires you to be better. Highly recommend working with Tom."

"Tom has been training my partner and me for six months and we are incredibly happy with the results. Both of us lost a lot of strength (and gained a lot of weight) during the pandemic. I also lost a lot of my core/stabilizing strength since throwing my back out a few years ago. With Tom we've seen phenomenal growth in both strength and fitness. After focusing on our nutrition, we have also had significant weight loss.

 

Beyond results, I also highly recommend Tom on a personal level: as a queer person, it can be rare to find a trainer who is thoughtful about pronouns and doesn't make me feel out-of-place in the gym. Tom is technically-focused (he'll even bring out his iPad to show you anatomical diagrams), warm, kind, and encouraging. If you're considering starting with training, Tom's your guy."

- Alden G.

"I've had several personal trainers in the past. They were good and I did get some results, but until I started training with Tom, I'd never realized that a relationship with a trainer could set me up to be so self-empowered and motivated. His training programs are thoughtfully designed and he has a wealth of mind-body-nutrition philosophy that I really appreciate. What's more, Tom is a light-hearted, funny guy and is really engaged and hands-on during our sessions. I highly recommend Tom to anyone who is looking to look and feel great, and to have a great time doing it! Thanks to Tom, I'm in the best shape of my life."

"I heard about Tom through a friend he was training. Before meeting Tom, I had only had very limited exposure to the gym, poor eating habits, and my father was in the ICU with COVID-19. I was deeply unhappy with my body and felt that a physically fit body was unachievable for myself. Besides my friend's recommendation, I chose Tom as my trainer because of his age (ability to relate) and the attention he gave to an integrated workout. He  was able to speak to the importance of not only exercising the upper body, but the lower body as well, with a holistic approach to fitness that carefully captured and addressed my concerns regarding food and general lifestyle. Throughout his program, he supported me emotionally -- with optimism, encouragement, and insight. Tom has a wisdom and wealth of knowledge when it comes to fitness and food! Not only is Tom a lionhearted teacher, but a sincere mentor and ally to anyone looking to transform their life!"
