“I’ve never been stronger or felt healthier”

Andrea Telfer

andrea-telferI started working out with Troy 7 months ago and have never been stronger or felt healthier. I began with weekly one-on-one training in order to get a highly personalized workout that included a lot of discussion about muscle groups, how to exercise correctly to avoid injury, and the most effective and efficient techniques. Eventually, I began doing group classes twice weekly which added a fun, social element but still incorporated the same awesome strength, endurance, and flexibility training that Troy reliably offered. I would recommend Troy to anyone who wants a trainer who truly cares about their fitness, health, and happiness but isn’t afraid to push him/her to the next level.

“He’s helped me make a huge difference in my life”

Margaret Reynolds

I have been working out with Troy as my personal trainer since August 2013. He has helped me make a huge difference in my life and my health. He is a wonderful trainer, he always makes sure I am doing the exercises with the correct form so I don’t injure myself. He is a tough taskmaster who pushes me to do things I never thought I could do but he knows I can. I look forward to continue to work with Troy on my journey to fitness. He can help you reach and exceed your fitness goals.

“I’ve gained strength and stability as well as lost weight”

Dave M

I’ve had the chance to be trained by Troy, a personal trainer in Vancouver, for the last couple of months, and have both learned a lot and seen great results. As a big guy to begin with, Troy has been great at catering a program to my skill level, and pushing me to the next level. In only 2 months, I’ve gained strength and stability as well as lost weight, all while learning how to work out on my own for the days Troy’s not around to kick my ass… which he seems to enjoy.

I’d highly recommend Troy as a personal trainer in Vancouver for someone looking to improve their workouts and reach their goals!

“So Far Over The Course Of 3 Years, I’ve Lost 100 Pounds And 5 Dress Sizes!”

Mary Anderson Actress / Accountant Vancouver

I started training with Troy to achieve some rather lofty fitness goals. I had just moved to Vancouver and wanted to get into the film industry requiring a far more in shape physique than what I had.

I trained with Troy for about a year and with the combination of my determination and hard work, plus his encouragement and butt kicking skills, I’ve had some amazing results! So far, over the course of 3 years, I’ve lost 100 pounds and 5 dress sizes! I must say that with the help of a trainer, I’ve made much more progress in the last year than I experienced in the last 2 previous years. Now, I look in the mirror and can’t recognize the person staring back at me. Thanks so much Troy!

Allison Cousins, Graphic Designer, Rex Image North Vancouver

Thanks for getting me back on the road to fitness. The biggest hurdle for me was time and you accommodated my schedule. So, I had no excuse and having an appointment to see you held me accountable. The workouts you created for me were customized to my personal goals and you always pushed me a little beyond where I pushed myself. With your help I’ve been able to keep myself on track and I’ve toned myself up losing 15 pounds. Allison Cousins Graphic Designer, Rex Image North Vancouver.

“Now I have the look I always wanted, from a beginner level to a very athletic body type.”

Devin Clarke, Video Photography Vancouver / Toronto

Hi my name is Devin Clarke. Before I started with Troy Tyrell, I had never been to a gym before and had no idea what kind of work out would suit my particular needs. Troy brought a professional attitude, skill and experience to train me from a begging level to a very athletic body type. Now I have the look I always wanted, the confidence and the energy. Troy is a great trainer and has become a friend in the process and that’s something you can’t buy. Devin Clarke Website www.devinclarke.com

“I have lost a ton of weight and have gone from a size 14 to a size 6. I feel slim and that I can maintain this weight easily.”

Chloe O'Loughlin Executive Director Vancouver

I am 59 years old and Troy Tyrell has been my personal trainer for exactly one year. His training has been fabulous. I began personal training because I was really depressed and overweight in Vancouver. I realized that if I did not have a strict routine I would not have the drive to exercise regularly.

I chose Troy because he is mega supportive and super encouraging. His instructions are clear and precise, so I completely understand the exercise and how to do it correctly. Each session has been fun, always different, and never too hard?and the result has been fantastic.

Over the past year I have lost a ton of weight and have gone from a size 14 to a size 6. I feel slim and that I can maintain this weight easily. I now can wear beautiful lingerie and nice clothes because I feel sexy and confident about my body. I feel healthy, strong, and pretty invulnerable ? that I?m not going to injure myself if I sneeze or turn suddenly. I can do push ups and a hundred sit-ups, (last September 2009 I could not do even one of either.) My bow legs are now straight, strong and beautiful. And most importantly, after each workout, I am so happy that I feel like skipping joyfully down the street.

Thank you Troy, for transforming my body to Lean and Sexy and helping me regain my self-confidence. Chloe O’Loughlin, Executive Director Canadian Parks and Wilderness Society – BC Chapter #410-698 Seymour Street Vancouver, B.C. V6B 3K6 Tel: 604 685-7445 ext. 23

“I have lost a ton of weight and have gone from a size 14 to a size 6. I feel slim and that I can maintain this weight easily.”

“In my first 20 sessions, I lost 20 pounds and dropped from a size 12 to a size 6 and brought my health, self-confidence, and overall fitness to a whole new level.”

Chrissy S., CA Chartered Accountant Vancouver

vancouver fitness training Chrissy2Hello, my name is Chrissy. I am 29 years old, live in Vancouver, BC and workout with Troy at Tsquared Personal Trainers in Vancouver. After winning my battle with cancer this past year, my body was left weak and sapped of energy (I had gained 25 pounds over the course of my chemotherapy treatments). I went to Troy seeking to gain back my energy and muscle strength, and drop the extra weight I had put on as a result of my illness. I had high expectations in the goals I wanted to achieve?and Troy helped me to achieve these goals. In 20 sessions with Troy I lost 20 pounds and dropped from a size 12 to a size 6. Now, after working out with Troy three times a week for the past four months, I have lost a total of 32 pounds and many, many inches!!! I have muscle definition in places I never thought possible and feel trim and lean for the first time in my life. What is even more amazing than my physical transformation is how strong, confident and motivated I feel now. Working out with Troy has brought my health, self-confidence, and overall fitness to a whole new level. Thanks to Troy, I am now in the best shape of my life!!

“Training with Troy is hard work, the results make it worth it!”

Calum Gruer, Economics Student MBA Vancouver / UK

trained with Troy from Tsquared personal trainers in Vancouver for 6 months before I moved away to the UK due to work. I’d always been rubbish at sticking to workout programs in the past as I lacked direction and motivation so I thought I’d give a personal trainer a try. Troy was great at identifying my areas of weakness and building a fitness program that addressed them while keeping things interesting fun and motivating. Training with Troy is hard work but the results make it worth it!

“If you’re willing to work hard and want results I wouldn’t hesitate to hire troy, & I will again.”

Jim Graham, Sales Vancouver

Vancouver personal Trainer2I have hired Troy on 2 different occasions to drop a few pounds, shed some body fat, and firm up around the middle. When I first started Personal training with Troy and the gravity training System I dropped over 12 Pounds, slimmed down considerably dropping my body fat percentage from 26 to 18 Percent in the first 8 weeks. I eventually lost 21 lbs. The second time I hired Troy, I put on 10 lbs of muscle & increased my overall bench press from 175 to 210 lbs. I’m stronger and even my flexibility has improved. Troy is easy to work with and always keeps me motivated. The bottom line is, if you’re willing to work hard and want results I wouldn’t hesitate to hire troy, & I will again.”

“The fun of being killed twice a week.”

Mikkel Groesland Film Producer Vancouver / UK

The fun of being killed twice a week. I’ve always been very active, mostly with running and core training at home. However, when I decided to strengthen my overall body at bit better, I realized I would benefit from someone who could make sure I did it properly. Troy has been awesome with making sure my strength training is balanced and I actually enjoy his brutal no-mercy approach to it. He seems to enjoy pushing me to the limits too so it’s win-win. Great fun and lots of laughs every time! :) I’d recommend Troy Tyrell as a personal trainer to everyone!

“Couldn’t be happier with the results I’ve already acheived.”

Lisa Mudrakoff

I’ve been working out with Troy for 7 months now and couldn’t be happier with the results I’ve already achieved, and looking forward to the changes still to come!When I found Troy I had already lost most of the scale weight – about 50 lbs over 2 years through running – and was looking to exchange the remaining skinand flab for strong, sculpted muscle. Troy has delivered that and more.

Troy has the unique ability to tailor both the workout and the motivation style not only to the individual, but also to your mood and energy level day to day. I get challenged, complimented, goaded or coerced, sometimes all within the same one hour period. The workouts are always challenging but I know that if Troy thinks I can do it, I can and do!

Thanks to Troy’s inspiring and intense regimen I have:
Increases in:
1. strength and stamina
2. muscle definition (no more bat wings!)
3. confidence and attitude

Decreases in:
1. jiggling!
2. overall inches
3. bodyfat %
4. half-marathon times (getting faster every race)

Only ‘downside’ is having to buy new, smaller clothes, how terrible! Thank you Troy for pushing me to work harder than I ever thought I could, and love every minute of it!

“He keeps the workouts intersting, and he’s tough”

Raffy Hammett

Befor and After - 1 yearI have been training with Troy for just about a year now and the changes I have made in my body over that year are really astonishing to me. I was always very tall and skinny growing up and I never seemed to be able to pack on any muscle even though I tried several different workout routines throughout the years. I always found myself getting bored and seeing little to no results so inevitably I would give up. I really like Troy because he keeps the workouts interesting and he is tough – he will whip you into shape with no mercy. But he’s also a fun guy to train with and he can take a boat load of verbal abuse with a smile. His pricing is very fair as well. I go to group sessions of about 3-4 people for $30 a session which allows me to go twice a week. Most of the other trainers I have looked up in Vancouver are charging $70-90 per session. You still get a lot of personal attention in the group sessions. I couldn’t be happier with my body these days. My posture is better, my muscles are fit and toned, I’ve cut away most of the annoying baby fat around my pectorals and abdomen, and I’m more confident in myself than I ever have been. Highly recommended!
