Chase Tomseth

Chase Tomseth

Certified Personal Trainer – Group Training Instructor

Chase grew up in Sun Valley, Idaho playing all types of sports from soccer to baseball, snowboarding to skateboarding and everything in between. It wasn’t until he moved to Hawaii in 2005 where I really began to develop a relationship with physical fitness. While living in Hawaii Chase had the opportunity to train with UFC fighter BJ Penn at his academy learning boxing, kickboxing, wrestling and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. I learned what it takes to train at the top level and what sacrifices people take to achieve optimal fitness. After graduating from the University of Hawaii, with a degree in Business Administration in 2009, he moved back to Idaho to finish his degree in Exercise Science at Boise State. Chase also hold multiple professional certifications including: B.A. in Business Administration, University of Hawai; Hilo, ACSM Certified Personal Trainer, CPR/AED certified by American Heart Association, and Lifeguard/First Aid certified by Red Cross. Ultimately his training philosophy is simple and the workouts are complex! He will work you out from head to toe, front to back, left to right and everywhere in-between. All programs incorporate functional training with traditional weight training, where he will throw in some good old fashioned bodybuilding techniques, and then toss that around with some athletic based performance training. Every individual’s workout is different and designed for each client’s needs.
