Episode 239: Tom Purvis - Founder of Resistance Training Specialist (RTS)

This episodes guest is  Tom Purvis founder of exerciseprofessional.com and Resistance Training Specialist (RTS).

Tom has been educating personal trainers nationally and internationally since 1989. Trainers entering the field in the past decade probably have not yet heard of Tom. In the past 15 years he has dramatically reduced his travel commitments to focus on a few long-term projects …as well as life. Nevertheless his monthly classes at RTS® (the Resistance Training Specialist® program) are regularly sold out, every seat occupied by only the most committed and forward-thinking trainers, therapists, and specialists from around world.
