This summer Good Measure Meals is partnering with a local fitness expert. His name is Thomas Murphy, and not only is he the Athletic Director at Colony Square athletic Club, but he is also a NPC Physique and Power Lifting Competitor. Thomas is working with Good Measure Meals to prepare for his upcoming competitions and control his weight through healthy nutrition.
We asked Thomas to tell us about his fitness expertise and how Good Measure Meals are helping him achieve his goals.
“My fitness experience is pretty much a little bit of everything. Growing up, my brothers and I were all involved in judo and soccer. I went on to try out ice hockey, basketball, and boxing. I began lifting weights in a high school class and continued on through college and haven’t missed more than 2 week in the gym ever since. My father worked as a physical therapist and I‘ve learned quite a bit from him as well. Recently, I competed in and won the Kennesaw State Iron Owl 3 Weight Lifting Competition for my weight and for overall. This past weekend I placed 9th out of 15th in the NPC Eastern Seaboard Physique Competition. I look forward to placing higher next time in July!
I am a certified strength and conditioning specialist (CSCS) and have worked as a personal trainer for over 10 years now. My expertise is in improving a person’s body composition and/or improving athletic performance. However, I have become comfortable working with all different types of goals with various limitations. I have enjoyed my new role as Athletic Director of Colony Square Athletic Club as it allows more of an overall coaching role as opposed to just the physical training aspect of fitness.
Living a healthy lifestyle is something I feel is universally appreciated. I enjoy working in this industry because I am able to help people and in some cases actually save lives. I understand my job allows me to change people in so many ways, and I enjoy being a leader for them to follow. The rewards are endless.
I am so glad to able to have Good Measure Meals at my place of work. It is such a stress relief to know that I don’t have to worry about getting my meals ready the night before work or to get them prepared in the morning. Good Measure provides healthy, balanced meal plans that taste amazing and very much so gourmet! I look forward to seeing what I get to eat for the day and love the fact that I don’t have to calculate a thing. I know exactly how many calories are being provided and that makes the rest of my meal planning a cinch.”
