Meet Tommy Baker. He’s a fitness leader in Fairfield County recently taking his training to a whole new level.

 “What I’ve always looked for  is the hardest possible course.  Because I believe to be a master of something – to be a super expert- you have to go all in, you have to go super hard, there’s got to be a lot of challenge," said Baker.

Traveling for the past four years Connecticut to Salt Lake City, Baker now holds a certication from Gym Jones.  It's a facilitiy that’s trained many of favorite actors and athletes. In fact – it’s so elite: Only 15 others have successfully completed the program.

It’s training– he says –that will allow him to better serve his clients at his gym: SISU Elite Fitness  on Westport Avenue.

"You know we take the individual and really sit down with and really find out what they want and why they want them," he said.

Here – he uses a holistic approach to make you look and feel a whole lot better; an approach largely learned from that four-year program.

 Instead, Baker will work on your nutrition..and show you moves like this one here, known as the Turkish Getup.

"The goal is to never stop learning. I want everyone here to be an expert in what we do.  If not then what's the point?" he said. 

You can learn more moves and fitness insight from Baker himself at his gym located at 507 Westport Avenue.
