Check out some of my amazing clients, the awesome transformations we made together and what they have to say about my coaching.
I began working with Teddy right after the 2018 holidays. As a former D-1 basketball athlete, I believed that my 2-a-day HIIT classes and circuit style weight training would forever be the foundation to maintaining a strong and lean physique. Once I connected with Teddy, I ultimately learned how to train smarter. Teddy helped me reconnect with the inner “mamba mentality” that I developed from my early beginnings in basketball. The lessons that I have learned from Teddy surpass the gym and macro counting and have transitioned to my personal and professional life, instilling in me a certain confidence that with the right focus, discipline and intestinal fortitude, I am capable of having a seat and voice at any table!

I am a fitness professional who is teaching on average 14 cycling classes a week. After several years of not knowing how to properly fuel my body, under eating and also eating the wrong things, I was in desperate need for a change. I was sick of feeling bloated, having low energy and gaining weight randomly. Thank the heavens for Teddy. He took the time to educate me on what I needed to know. He was strict but also so encouraging and held me accountable every step of the way. He tailored a plan specifically to me and what I needed. The tools Teddy has given me have helped me with my overall physical look and I’m able to ride harder and coach better.

I’ve known Teddy from when we were in high school. I’ve seen Teddy’s dedication over the years which I’ve always found admirable. I love Teddy’s no bullshit (excuse if we are keeping it PG.. haha) attitude. After a previous stint with Ted that I did not do my part, I’ve jumped in now with him 110% and the result in a relatively short time have been amazing. From The middle of March to June I’ve got into the best shape of my life. Having Ted in my corner for any questions or helping working around my injury have made a huge difference. I look forward to continue working with him and seeing where my ceiling is.

Teddy is my first, and to this day, only coach. I respect and admire he and his “no excuses” work ethic and direct & honest approach. He keeps it simple, if you follow his instructions, to a “T”, you’ll be a champion. Period. I did…I am…and I’m coming for more. Thanks for everything Ted!

I’ve been working with Teddy for just under 12 months and the transformation that my my body has taken has been incredible. He has taken a methodical and careful approach to my contest preparation and I’m always confident under his direction as he is experienced, knowledgeable and truly enthusiastic about the sport of bodybuilding. If you’re considering working with Teddy, I will never hesitate to recommend him – but be willing to do the physical, emotional and mental ground work because his results are second to none when you’re compliant, hard working and consistent.

After deciding to compete in my first body building competition, I knew I had to get my diet on point. I started searching for coaches that specialize in nutrition for competition. That’s how I found Teddy. Teddy made the process of dieting easier to understand and he held me accountable. I transformed my body in just 8 weeks and ended up placing 2nd in an INBA bikini competition. The second time around I thought I could diet without a coach but started hitting plateaus where I was no longer getting results. I worked with Teddy again 4 weeks before my show date and ended up placing 5th in my NPC division. Teddy is very knowledgeable about food and working with different body types. I’ll always trust him to help me achieve my goal.

Working with Teddy has been nothing less than a pleasure. He has always been there for me when I had questions regarding my nutrition and strength workouts. We have been working together for roughly 3 months now and his inner motivation and success drives me further each and everyday. Many people hire a coach and think magic will happen. However, the bold truth is it is all up to the client and how well they keep themselves accountable to the plan. I look forward to continue building and growing together.

I was recommended Teddy by a friend back in 2017, it was the beginning of the year and my resolution was to do my first body building show. I did a little research on my own about the process but I had no idea what to expect and everything that was involved in this endeavor. I had already started my fitness journey on my own some years back losing over 50 lbs. but I couldn’t for the life of me get to super athletic muscular body I was looking for. I was very frustrated at this point and that’s what led me to making the ultimate decision to compete.
I’m SO SO HAPPY I was introduced to Teddy, he took care of me right away and made me feel at ease about the process. We started right away, he coached me through the whole process, taught me how to eat, how to track macros, how to track my progress which he checked once a week as well as daily motivational text messages and check ins, making sure I was staying focused. He also wrote up my training program which I followed for the entirety of my prep.
I honestly couldn’t have asked for a better person to coach me through this difficult process. He was on my ass every day lol. I’ve had other coaches for different reasons and I must say Teddy was the best most attentive, knowledgeable and attentive coach I’ve ever experienced. BTW I won that show 1st place Physique and Figure bitches which led to a transformation picture that went viral on Instagram and caught the eye of Kim Kardashian who I now train!!! If I ever compete again Teddy will be on my side. He changed my life forever is now not just my coach but my friend for life.

Working with Teddy has been nothing short of awesome. His tailored programming and nutrition plans are always challenging and unique. Even more valuable is his quick fire text responses answering any questions I may have on the fly. If you take fitness seriously and are looking for a no nonsense coach that will give you the tools to see what your peak physique looks like, Teddy is your guy.

You won’t find a coach that knows his facts and tools better than Teddy. He always had an answer for my questions and was really encouraging (in a tough way) when things were tough during my show prep. I learned so much from the entire experience based on what he knew and taught me. We ended up making a really good team at the end because we were able to build a really good trust that he would take care of me and I would be a good student and do my homework.

At 46, I wanted to challenge myself and enter a bikini competition. I exercised 4-6 days a week at home doing some weights and a lot of cardio but clearly didn’t understand nutrition. I started working with Teddy and soon learned the importance of nutrition and getting back to a gym to weight train and new way to cardio. During the entire time of my prep, which was extensive (approx. 10 months) I never felt miserable or hormonal and this is coming from a over 40 woman without a thyroid. My levels are tested frequently due to my medical condition and never were they once “off.” Teddy teaches along with takes care of you to ensure you are healthy first. He is straight forward. There is no sugar coating which I appreciate. My body and how I see food and fitness is forever changed. This is now a lifestyle. Now at 48, I am preparing for another competition under Teddy’s guidance. I can’t wait to see what this 2020 physique will look like.
