His enthusiasm for process has followed him throughout life. Tom didn't just do triathlons--he trained, customized gear and hand-assembled the bike he rode on. He is passionate about understanding how and why things work the way they do. This curiosity has compelled him to study health, wellness and longevity for over 30 years. His lifetime interest in fitness, health and meditation has resulted in him becoming a Reiki Master as well as learning and regularly practicing Transcendental Meditation for over 20 years. He is one of the very few fitness personalities who can actually demonstrate many impressive physical feats including 80+ push-ups in record time. Prior to this book, Tom worked as a banker, financing pharmaceutical, biotechnology and other high tech companies. In early 2010, he retired to finally live his dream of consulting and writing about wellness, fitness and fat loss. Today, Tom spends his time with his wife of 30+ years, living in Arizona, California and Connecticut.
