Frederick Thompson has been helping others to optimize their health, appearance and performance since 1996. His interest in the discipline burgeoned as a teen, after he earned a Black Belt in Tae Kwon Do. Throughout college, Frederick furthered his fitness regimen as a gymnast, and into his early 40s as a competitive body builder.
Today, at 56, his dedication to health, fitness, nutrition and optimum human performance is as passionate as ever, inspiring him to continue to study and research for personal growth. He is an active member of such organizations as the American Association of Clinical Chemist, the Institute for Functional Medicine and the New York Academy of Science.
Frederick uses his wealth of experience and varied education to provide clients with the most scientifically sound training available. His mandate: to develop fitness solutions for clients that provide unparalleled results in the areas of health, appearance, and performance—based on a foundation of proven training, nutrition and recovery strategies.
Born and raised in New York City, Frederick graduated from the Bronx High School of Science, and earned a Bachelor’s degree in Chemistry from Syracuse University. His relevant experience includes working as a Clinical Chemist at Wilford Hall Medical Center in San Antonio, Texas, as well as a Food/Special Projects Chemist for Pace Foods, Inc. (a division of the Campbell Soup Co.).
After spending much of his professional career in the laboratories of hospitals, research facilities, and corporations, he decided 19 years ago to leave the sterility of the labs and pursue his passion in Health & Fitness; obtaining his personal training certification from the International Sports Science Association.
