TJ  TJ first met the LaLanne’s in 2010 while on a journey that led to a 70-pound weight loss and ignited a previously undiscovered love of fitness.  First as a client and then an employee, they helped him turn around decades of unhealthy choices and bad behavior and chart a new, healthier course. He is very excited to continue this adventure with LaLanne Bootcamp and the East Bay Community he calls home. His message is simple, it’s never too late to turn things around and if it can work for him, it can work for you!  The key is to show up, give it your all and most importantly, make it fun! When not at the Bootcamp, TJ works as a Client Success Manager in San Francisco. He loves collecting old action figures from 70’s TV shows, CrossFit, and quiet time at home with his partner of more than 20 years and a very exuberant baby Parrot named Beau. There is no shortage of laughter, warmth and Christmas carols whenever TJ is in the room! (We're pretty sure he may be the real Santa Claus). It'll take you 1.5 seconds to fall right in love with this awesome guy! "I am so excited to continue my journey with the LaLanne family. Through them I have discovered a love for fitness that I never knew was there and it has changed, and quite literally, saved my life. I can't wait to meet you all and share my enthusiasm for this amazing program.  When asked what he loves about Coaching at LaLanne Bootcamp, TJ replied, "We are going to get fit and have a blast doing it!"
