Congratulations to Thomas Zonkowski, RWJ Fitness & Wellness Center's Trainer of the Month for January 2011!
Specialty: Advanced Functional Movement Systems specialist, HKC Kettlebell certification
"Be simple, but not easy."Bio: Thomas earned his personal training certification from the World Instructor Training Schools. He has been actively involved in fitness training for the past 16 years, including his own personal ventures like mountain bike racing.
Thomas believes in giving each activity "whatever it takes." With each client, he begins by doing a diagnostic assessment. Once this baseline is established, he creates exercise programs based on the appropriate corrective and performance training techniques. Thomas keeps each session fresh and exciting, never repeating a workout. This helps encourage compliance and maintain interest.
In his free time, Thomas enjoys mountain biking and music. He studied music for six years. He likes the challenge of working with a variety of clients to meet their changing needs, the evolving nature of which he compares to composing on the spot.
Thomas works to help his clients achieve results on the Exercise Floor that lead to a happy, successful life far beyond the Center's walls.
