Meet Taylor’s Mentor: Tom Barbeau


tom barbeauBack in the old stomping grounds.

Revisiting legendary workouts with my mentor, Tom Barbeau.

The dude is 61 years old today and you can see his abs through his Tshirt!

This is the place and the man that started my journey.

Back in 2001 I took his class called The Burdenko Method.

Someone told me I’d like it because they did one legged squats :)

I had never heard anyone speak of fitness and training like Tom did.

The approach was more novel than anything I had ever seen.

I shadowed Toms every move.

By 2004, I was a certified instructor of TBM.

By 2007, I worked with Dr. Igor Burdenko.

By 2009, I was the youngest and 20th Master instructor in the world.

And now, in 2017, I am just as excited as when it began.

If I never met Tom I would have never found my way.

Thank you for everything and happy birthday!
