Tom Toth

I’m an 18-year fitness industry veteran who resides in Toronto, Canada. My personal training business focuses on helping people with injuries and medical conditions become fit. I also work with athletes of all ages and levels.

My writing focuses on creative workout programming, working with and healing injuries through exercise, and improving athletic performance. I also enjoy writing about my second passion: food! I believe a healthy lifestyle does not exclude any major food groups.

To be honest, that’s a slightly misleading title, because I don’t actually “love” the taste of lentils. On their own, they don’t actually taste like much, and what they taste like isn’t all that great. How’s that for a great intro for something I’m trying to make you eat more of! 

Can You Fix Headaches Through Exercise?

One of the most frequent complaints I hear from new clients (as well as family and friends) is about headaches. Nothing sets your day back like waking up with searing pain in your head and neck. Tension headaches are the most common, but migraines and cluster headaches are also very frequent. No matter what type you’re dealing with, headaches can be absolutely debilitating.

There Goes Another Shoulder: How Home Training During the Coronavirus Crisis can Cause More Injuries

We live in interesting times, to say the least. Life has changed. With the closure of gyms and fitness studios, more and more people are exercising at home, with whatever they have access to. Often this means nothing but body-weight exercises.
