• Frederick Thompson

    FRED THOMPSON 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 54, 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 customers 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 18 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.

    Lauren Ashby

    I am a New York City-based Certified Personal Trainer, NPC Nationally-Qualified Figure Competitor, and Figure and Bikini Competition Prep Coach. I started my career at an exclusive boutique gym in Arlington, VA before moving to New York City in 2008.

    Since moving to New York, I worked at a large commercial gym but now work as an independent trainer with a broad client base including a Broadway performer, reality TV contestant, college athletes, fitness competitors, post-rehab clients and everybody in between!

    I became interested in fitness and weight training after “retiring” from competitive swimming which I did for 11 years.  I became a regular at my gym and decided to make it my career after 10 years in the marketing industry.  I then decided to take my passion to another level when I became an NPC Figure Competitor in 2009. I continue to compete in Figure Competitions and have since taken my passion to a new level by coaching figure and bikini athletes, an elite group of women dedicated to the sport of bodybuilding.   I am constantly researching and looking for new ways to surprise my clients and love to educate, motivate and inspire everyone I work with!
