Steve Troutman

Steve Troutman has dedicated his career as a personal trainer and strength coach to doing what’s in his client’s best interest. Placing a premium on simplicity, evidence-based guidance, and personalization, he has spent the last decade helping his clients reach their goals safely and efficiently.

Beyond his success rates, he’s best known for his passion for educating. Rather than barking commands at his clients, they’re likely to find him explaining the whys and hows. His hope is that clients take more than a better body and better performance away from his guidance. The idea is that they deserve a true understanding so that they can continue down the path of refinement and improvement on their own.

When asked what drives him he replied:

“The largest issue in this industry today is the dilution of truth and quality of information. There are countless companies and professionals selling methods and products based on pseudoscience and mysticism. Their rigid rules and false absolutes net nothing but confusion and ‘easy pickings’ in terms of customers and sales. Ralph Waldo Emerson said it best – ‘As to methods there may be a million and then some, but principles are few. The man who grasps principles can successfully select his own methods. The man who tries methods, ignoring principles, is sure to have trouble.’”

That’s the essence of Steve’s philosophy. The endless methods that the media floods our culture with have kept people in the dark about what really matters. When the clients are taught the principles underlying fitness and nutrition, it shines an entirely new light on how to think about things.

Steve owns and operates Body-Improvements West, which is a training studio located in Pottstown, PA. He has also found his fit reaching people on the World Wide Web. He is a Certified Strength & Conditioning Specialist by way of the National Strength and Conditioning Association and Certified Personal Trainer and Performance Enhancement Specialist by way of the National Academy of Sports Medicine.

With a strong drive for education and research, he has molded a great balance between science, application, education, and motivation. This balance has been the fuel for long-lasting and consistent results for his clients.

Steve has experience working with a wide array of clients – from individual clients interested in fat loss to entire sports teams and everything in between. Contact him today to see how he can help you with your goals.
