Thanks for visiting toddolyolsen.com. Todd has over 40 years experience in fitness and athletics which include
Competitive Bodybuilding, Power Lifting, Boxing and Professional Wrestling. Todd is a certified trainer but there isn't any certification that can equal all of that "real world" experience.
Barbell training has always been the most effective way to train for strength. And, thanks to You Tube there is more information available then ever before but it can be difficult to know what is right and what is wrong. Todd has been there, and can help you through this process. He will teach you.
The Squat, Dead Lift, Bench Press and Overhead Press are the very best exercises or "lifts" for gaining overall full body strength. This goes equally for males and females. Todd teaches these lifts and how to program them for progress, as well as useful supplemental lifts and exercises.
Todd works with clients of all kinds. He does not automatically assume that someone is helpless just because they are older or because they have a health issue of some kind. Todd's clients include women and men of all ages and abilities. They all get stronger. He has also worked with many post surgery/post PT clients.
