Tommy Au and his cousin and partner Danny Ma have started a new personal training and nutrition studio in Moraga, at 1605 School Street (behind Si Si Caffé). The two young men are certified trainers; Au has a background in Taekwondo and worked as a trainer for athletes as well as ordinary folks wanting to get back in shape at Living Lean in Orinda. Ma graduated from Cal in nutrition before becoming a trainer. "Our objective is to help people live stronger and healthier, and prevent injuries," says Au. "We work with clients that have lower back problems and want to get back into shape, with people who want to lose weight, with teenagers who want to achieve a higher degree of fitness." The two often practice compound or functional exercises with their clients, such as picking up and transferring weights on a shelf without injuring the back or the shoulder. "We want people to realize their full potential, whatever their age," adds Au. The two trainers work with people individually or in small groups of up to four people.
