Celebrity trainer, entrepreneur, and author, Thomas DeLauer. Thomas was hyper-focused on his business… a successful business at that, but he was afraid to step away or divert in any way towards anything else. As a result he was overweight. The only thing that getting healthy would do would shift time away from what mattered to him most (money and providing for his family).
He had the hard-wiring to be excellent at both physical performance and business… They could complement each other. He became obsessed with homing in on exactly what made him an excellent businessperson. Thomas applied discipline and knowledge to his health and made some promises to himself. In a rather short amount of time, he went from being 280 lbs to 185 lbs and on the covers of some of the largest health and fitness magazines in the world. Now, he writes for some of the largest fitness publications in the world as an expert in diet, nutrition, and mindset.
Thomas became a coach after he knew that he could provide what was needed to get the world’s best businesspeople the results that they need to be a better spouse, feel better, perform better, and increase their bottom line. The best part is so much of this can be done without dramatically changing your life, and seeing the optimization take place in his clients is sincerely the reason he continues to do this.
Nowadays, Thomas lives in Santa Barbara, CA with his wife, four dogs, and three horses. They enjoy an active, outdoor life that allows them to optimize every aspect of their lives.

[00:30] About Thomas Delauer
Thomas stepped out of his corporate role and committed his life to the fitness industry. His story is fantastic, so he was able to get on the cover of magazines. However, Thomas realized the fitness industry was all about looks. How you look should only be a reflection of how you feel on the inside. Thomas realized he needed to bridge the gap between health and fitness. The fitness industry dropped Thomas because he was no longer speaking about what they wanted to hear. When Facebook changed their algorithms, Thomas decided to work on YouTube to get his message out. If you put a YouTube video out, people will be able to find it for years.
