TJ is a local personal trainer, yoga teacher, health coach and raw vegan chef in MPLS. He began pursuing the path toward healthy and compassionate living after over a decade of substance abuse/addiction, and a lifetime of unhealthy habits. Learning alternative ways to naturally restore his good health prompted the desire to help guide others looking to also explore natural health recovery options. He started in physical therapy, then decided to migrate into personal training once he learned that he can still participate in therapeutic modalities. Yoga and mind-body fitness soon began to mold into the formation of his unique approach to all-around natural health and fitness recovery. In his own time, TJ enjoys being in Nature with his companion-dog Brooks, coaching youth ice hockey, journaling, playing and listening to music, spreading awareness through activism, maintaining a positive mental attitude, and creating delicious fruit-based meals for himself and others.
