About Thurston

Thurston is a Fitness Professional, with a tremendous passion that started at the age of 3. Thurston was raised in Virginia in a Military family. Thurston is a Certified Personal Trainer through The American Council on Exercise, currently pursuing an education in Physical Therapy and advanced Health Coaching! Teaching people and helping them achieve their fitness goals is what Thurston is built for.

My fitness journey began in 1993. I watched a relative perform a backflip. That moment started my passion for fitness and the human form. I started getting involved in gymnastics, football, and soccer. I love my 10 sets of 10 squats. I love the 100-yard dash. I love to swim and float around like a dolphin. I have always been a scholar of fitness and fascinated with martial arts. My favorite foods to eat are seafood and macadamia nut cookies. I will teach you things that you will take in for the rest of your life. Let's be willing to try new things in exercise or food. They are all tied together!

My favorite client story

One of my clients use to be a smoker and never trained. Now, they run 4 miles without stopping and they do not smoke anymore.

My favorite exercise

I have to pick just one!? I love all forms of exercise.

My favorite quote

"Practice makes permanent"!

My training philosophy

Learning by experience. Learning is better retained when it is put into use. Our training is about more than theory – it is based on methods that involve people and bring knowledge into operation. This philosophy goes for both the classroom and for practical training.

My training experience

My training experience is never done. there is always more to learn and I am always excited about learning new things.
