CSCS Fitness consultant& Trainer,
Functionally Fit Instructor
A competitive cyclist, swimmer and tennis player in high school, Tim received his BA in Biology from Ripon College before heading to Germany with the U.S. Army. In his over ten years in Germany, Tim competed internationally in Judo and triathlon and spent as much time in the mountains skiing as possible. After returning to the States, he worked for REI and taught skiing (cross country, telemark and alpine styles) and did reserve duty with the Army culminating in a stint in Hungary for the Bosnian Peacekeeping mission. After being struck by a car while cycling, he was encouraged by his physical therapist and friends to take his love of athletics and training to a vocational level, starting at 24 Hour Fitness and progressing through some smaller trainer gyms before going to Sound Mind and body gym. There he focused on functional training for athletes, but also developed a class to replace a rehab class for post cardiac patients at the club. This class has become the Silver Power program and has been popular and successful for the past eight years.
The Silver Power class is a strength and movement class for people over 55 that involves un-weighted calisthenics, balance movements, light weight exercises, individualized cardio and finishes off with ab work and a stretching cool down.
