Finding Inspiration in Every Turn
" Troy has been my personal trainer since late January of this year. Under his guidance I have lost over 30 pounds and many, many inches. I have strengthened my core and have become more physically fit and toned. I would not have been able to achieve so much within the past 8 months on my own.
Troy works with you on a personal level to establish and achieve goals. He provides advice, knowledge and support in the areas of diet and exercise in a non-intimidating manner. He is always willing to discuss ways that you can become a more healthier you.
If you are serious about improving your health and fitness levels then Troy can help you achieve your goals." -Marisa Bell
"I certainly respect you for the professional way you carry yourself and for the way you share your thoughts, suggestions and inspiration personally and through your newsletter.
So, just a thanks for everything including excellent yoga classes and the personal training I received from you." -C. Warren Gruenig
"I've been working with Troy for almost 6 months and have seen amazing results in that time. It was especially important since I was preparing to wear my strapless wedding gown! I have never felt stronger or healthier. Troy is passionate about fitness and it shows through the energy and enthusiasm he brings to every session. His easy going, friendly personality creates a relaxed, comfortable atmosphere. He makes each workout challenging and creative and also places a high value on correct form with each exercise. He motivates me to push past my perceived limits to get results. If you are serious about changing your life for the better, Troy will lead you in the right direction!" -Jennifer
"When I made the decision to hire a personal trainer my goal was to loose some additional weight and learn to incorporate a healthy cardio and weight training program into my life. Troy Cox was a perfect fit for me. He always has a prepared plan for each work out session and knows when to guide my focus onto a certain aspect of my goals, like journaling my food or building my knowledge of different types of training and their benefits. I appreciate Troy's style of identifying my needs and building a program that allowed me to adjust and consistently improve my strength and fitness.
Troy is such an all around trainer. He started with the base that I had and worked with me until I built my confidence to climb to a higher fitness level. He also introduced me to the stress release and benefits of yoga, which I now love. I am now miles away from where I started. So far in fact that I ran my first marathon in San Diego at 46 with Troy's support and guidance. I can't thank you enough Troy for the confidence that I now have with my appearance and health. You are Awesome!!" -Loretta Deto
"The teacher training was so comprehensive and engaging. Troy brought guest speakers to talk to us about everything from aruveda to anatomy. All the teachers were very knowledgeable and well prepared. Troy designed the teacher training in an amazing way that will help you in your professional life as well as your personal life. I had been teaching yoga for a few years, but I found that the wisdom I gleamed from the teacher training has changed me as a teacher, as a student, and as a person. I am so thankful for this opportunity to learn more, make lifelong friends, and become an excellent yoga teacher, and you will be too! Don't miss this opportunity to become a certified 200-hour teacher learning from at least two 500-hour Master Yoga Teachers. It will change your life for the better, forever." –Claire
"SunSalute yoga teacher training program was a life-changing experience. Not only did I learn true yoga, but I found a deep transformation in my life and personal practice. I am currently teaching at two yoga studios and my training has well prepared me to reach my students where they're at, to guide them to reach inward, and create a unique experience with profound effect of well being. Troy is an excellent teacher and mentor and the program is well designed and organized to maximize your learning experience."
"Sun Salute's teacher training was a great experience. I never felt the pressure and stress of "school". It was a relaxed and fun learning environment, and I came out of it with the knowledge and confidence to teach a class on my own. Troy was a great teacher who was willing to share his experience with us to make us better teachers. I love teaching at Sun Salute Yoga, and I will never forget the friends I made during my teaching training."
"Dear Troy, I just want to let you know that I really enjoyed my first Yoga class at your studio.
I felt calm and relax and I know that I worked my body physically with all those great poses. I can't wait to invite some of my friends to experience your great studio. Till next time! Namaste" -Elise
"I just want to thank you for the amazing job you did as a yoga instructor in Bali. During the 10 day experience it was great to learn more about yoga and begin my yoga practice. As a professional baseball player I have always worked extremely hard at both improving my game and taking care of my body through strength and conditioning training, corrective exercise, preventative maintenance and good nutrition. During my job as a strength and conditioning coach, fitness coach and baseball development coach in the off-season, I have always taken care of my clients and looked for competitive advantages that will benefit both my clients and my athletic career. I can fully understand the value in yoga and the great importance of stretching, building isometric strength and core strength. I had shoulder surgery in 2008 and have rebounded to full arm health since then. I know that yoga will maintain my arm health and will continue to promote overall wellness for my entire body. I must say, I wish I met Troy and started my yoga practice much sooner in my career. I will continue to recommend yoga for my clients in the offseason as well as continuing to practice yoga on my own. Yoga will certainly add to my strength and flexibility base as an athlete. Troy is a great teacher and has a calming, relaxing and positive attitude that will take your yoga experience to a whole new level. As a beginner, I was very lucky to learn and start with him. Thank you again for all the good that you do." -James Baker
“I was looking for a yoga class that would help my spine and mind! I took one class from Troy and was hooked! I did not even know about restorative yoga and how it benefits your body, mind and soul. I will do yoga for the rest of my life because after two years, I know that it is basically essential for a happy, healthy life as I get older. It helps to keep me balanced and focused and has really helped diminish my pain.” -Patricia
"You, my friend, have an intention for and during every class. I can hear it in your voice, the confidence with which you instruct. Your intention, as crazy as this might sound, shows in my practice and how much I have progressed. During practice I'm not thinking about being able to forward fold and touch my toes with straight legs. I am in the present moment feeling all the affects of my pranayama. You help keep me in the present because of your intention. I hope that makes sense. I may not be conveying what I am thinking. You have the ability to see me lose concentration and bring me back to my intention. That is a sign of an outstanding teacher." -Paul D.
"I just wanted to thank you for getting me going and lighting the "fire"
under me to start doing what I've wanted to start doing for a long time now.
Although challenging, your program was helpful not only in building my physical strength, but most importantly, it helped my mental strength. LIfe gets in the way so easily and we find ourselves making more excuses than strides for the things that we want. Your program really challenged my mental strength, will power, and belief that I'm worth living how I want to live. Thanks! :)" -Sincerely, Kris
"I was in your class yesterday. I ran in a Half Marathon on Sunday and my husband (who is also my trainer) thought I was nuts going to your class. I told him that I didn't expect to go very deep into the poses. I just wanted to go to open my body and move a little lactic acid. Thank you for teaching such a wonderful class. Your guidance really helped me do more than just open my muscles- I felt that I was really able to connect with my body through my breathing and just listening to your voice. It was exactly what I needed after my race. Thank you." -Jennifer Palacios
"He helps me not only lose weight but also make me feel more confident in all areas.
It's really hard to make you feel more energetic, fulfilled and look better, not just "skinny".
He can help you that part.
I'm taking his training for about 6 months and lost 8 pounds and more than 10% body fat.
It's not a short path because you and your body will learn and remember little by little how you maintain yourself from his training.
Try him, I'm sure you will be a big winner!" -Michie
"Troy is so passionate about what he does. One of the best teachers out there, offering not only safe asana practice but he teaches from the heart and opens his students up to a world of yoga that goes far beyond the physical practice." -Sophia Pickett
"Troy is awesome! his unrigid yet reverent and sincere way of sharing his yoga knowledge is effective and fresh. I look forward to his classes!" -
