What can I help you with?

Troy brings over 16 years of experience in the fitness industry to Vigor Active. He is a Certified Personal Trainer through the National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA) and The Cooper Institute. The reason he personal trains is to give back to his community, and the people around him the power of a healthier and happier lifestyle.  Troy’s favorite part about personal training is the ability to help eliminate the use of medication for his clients through the natural healing processes of exercise and proper diet.   

Been training since: May 2002
