Thomas The Trainer

I was born and raised in Chester, SC. I attended college at the University of South Carolina. After graduation I flew in the US Air Force on JSTARS. Currently, I reside in the Shallotte area. I have 2 daughters that are 19 and 16. I have been involved with fitness all my life. I studied various forms of martial arts and for the past 3 years I have been involved with boxing.

On a personal note, after my Mom was diagnosed with diabetes nearly 10 years ago I become even more serious about my health. I decided I not only wanted to make myself healthier I wanted to help everyone else as well. This pushed me to become a trainer. I look at myself as a body sculptor. I shape your body into the image you want. Allow me to mold you into the shape you desire.

Anthony Martucci

I never thought I could turn my passion into a career. Sure I was into sports early on becoming a PBC boxer when I was 15 and fighting for the golden gloves in the felt forum of MSG. During college I studied Tae Kwon Do where I achieved a first degree black belt. I wanted to broaden my knowledge of the martial arts because my philosophy is to always be a student and continue to educate so I studied Ninjutsu under Shihan Allie Alberigo and achieved a purple belt. Again wanting more I trained under UFC champion Matt Serra in Brazilian Jiu - jitsu and in Muay Thai under Kru James Gabert.

My philosophy is to train like an athlete and my knowledge of the science that goes into training with proper form and technique is passed on to my clients ranging in age from 8 years old to our golden seniors.

I have studied the NASM decree as well as A.C.E., two of the most prestigious trainer tools one can possess. At the cozy and personal facility Yard Time I train, coach and even have a new endeavor Gym 101 for those who want to feel confident using the gym, want to increase efficiency, or have fallen into doing the same thing every time you go to the gym rut.

Come see me, I'll fix that.

I did sports in High School but never got into fitness until my early 20's. After my first child, I needed help getting back in shape so I hired trainer. He showed me a passion I didn't know I had. I worked hard to get certified and become a trainer myself.

I have done it for the last 20 years. I am IFTA certified and have worked with everyone from 8 to 80. I have travelled the country helping people see that their dreams of a fit life can be realized.

I am now a mother of 4 at 41 in the best shape of my life. My goal is to help everyone improve their quality of life.
