Training With A Purpose

Bio

Tommy Dalton

I am a personal trainer and a nutritionist with over 19 years of experience in the vitamin and supplement industry. Here is a little about me, and how I got started in the health and fitness world.

In 1976, I was born prematurely, weighing 2.3 pounds. The doctors told my parents that if I survived (which was less than an 80% chance), I would probably be blind and in a wheelchair. Luckily, I survived, but I faced many challenges throughout my childhood and adolescent years.

At 12 years old I was diagnosed cerebral palsy. I had an inverted right foot which caused me to walk with a severe limp. Around the same time, I fell in love with baseball. I had difficulties hitting the ball and running the bases, but my coach recognized the special ability I had as a pitcher. I was able to throw the ball at 90 mph. My high school team was ranked fourth in the nation by USA Today, and after high school, I went on to play collegiate baseball. 

My love for baseball is what led me to personal training and nutrition. I wanted to be as active and healthy as possible and found satisfaction in teaching others to reach their full potential. At 27 years old, I found a specialist who performed reconstructive surgery on my inverted right foot, which has lessened my limp, and diminished my painful muscle cramps.

Nowadays, I am married to my beautiful wife, and have the most perfect baby boy. My disability was my biggest motivator. My life experiences have given me the opportunity to teach others that having a disability doesn’t mean you have permanent inabilities. The doctors were definitely wrong about me. When there’s a will…there’s always a way!!
