It's hard to put into words the profound impact that the pursuit and practice of Weightlessness has had on me. The holistic approach - developing body, mind, and spirit in parallel - yields a fundamental shift in both performance and perspective. The tools and skills of Weightlessness make me stronger, better, and edgier, but at the same time bring peace and freedom at a level I never experienced before. I am still learning...still growing...but I believe that through the pursuit of Weightlessness I am discovering my best self.
"The novice resits. The master floats." - Weightlessness
As an entrepreneur I have learned that nothing happens when you're comfortable and at ease. I believe that most, if not all great leaps forward are forged in turmoil. With Weightlessness training I have never seen faster fitness results and certainly never been challenged as much. Tom's approach is devoid of hot air and six-minute abs nonsense. He goes well beyond the pure basics of mind and body fitness. He aims not only to restore mental and physical health and balance, but also to lay a foundation for awesome living by top-tuning your most precious resources. The pursuit of Weightlessness is by far the most meaningful conviction I have come across in my life.
As a long-time student of mind-body practices, this is hands down the smartest system I’ve come across. Tom cuts out all the dogma, all the excess, all the fluff, and elegantly weaves together a philosophy and protocol that will train you in deep, essential ways. The training itself tested my levels of commitment, fortitude, and adaptability; and the self-study made me a better, more present thinker. If you’re looking for some next level shit to invest in yourself, look no further. I’ve even parked yoga and done Weightlessness programs five times — it IS my yoga and a new way of approaching life. Weightlessness is the future of mind-body peak performance.
This is unlike anything I’ve ever done before - possibly the most intense thing I’ve ever been through. My own abilities have change completely, my understanding of my own ability has changed completely. I’ve had to face failure in ways I’ve never had to do before, and I understand what a barrier now means to me. It’s not something I can never get past, it’s something I can find a way through.

I've never felt more anchored and grounded, and if I find that starting to slip I know how to get back there. The more I practice Weightlessness the faster I'm able to rebalance myself. Considering all the things I tried before this program to reach that first milestone - which did not work - it's a great achievement for me to finally be autonomous. The program has allowed me to clearly see what's inside me, and gain greater awareness of my thoughts and actions.
I've begun to understand how mind and body work together and I discovered the power of having a concentrated mind. I've learned that I'm far from reaching the limit of this ability, but concentration alone - not to mention all the other facets of training - is improving all other facets of life. It enhances the experience of everything, and allows me take control of my life in an authentic way. I'm also more aware of the behavior of others without judging them, and am at peace with the decisions I make. Weightlessness is a lifestyle with endless possibilities!
2018 was the most challenging year of my life, but I finished it with as much enthusiasm as when I started. Mid year I feared that for the first time in my life I would need to give up my dreams and find immediate work just to pay the bills.
I learned from the Weightlessness process to keep confident, and everyday went out to work even when I didn’t have anything to do. I repeated the process from training - persevere, stay focused, remain strong, breathe, and improve myself! Shortly after the program life dramatically improved with a new business (and new partners) and a new baby boy - both successes. Without this mind-body structure staying the course would not have been possible, mainly because my personal life had become so complicated so quickly.
I just had one of those 'life-punching-you-in-the-face' weeks and employed many of the tools in the Weightlessness tool kit. I'm very grateful for having it, thank you! Choosing not to harbor anger or attachment to certain thoughts is very liberating. I can again see the direct connection to having the physical strength and flexibility (mental and physical) to deal with shit in such a healthy way. I'm also doing my best to pass this on to my daughter.

Why Weightlessness Training?
Weightlessness was designed for those of us who feel that merely getting by in life isn't enough.
For those of us who want to experience today without the burdens of physical heaviness and lethargy, and the mental burdens of stress, anger, and fear, a method that manufactures a weightless today and an awesome tomorrow is necessary. Weightlessness training is designed to unburden us of all that holds us back in life, and empower us to live with power and grace.
The Weightlessness Process
The Weightlessness process is multifaceted and, regardless of format, contains layers of depth. All programs implement the Weightlessness spectrum - a framework for weighing, assessing, and prescribing an appropriate degree of work along three key pillars; strength and conditioning, flexibility, and meditation. This customized process is accompanied by a deeper curriculum that dissects key tools and principles of health and performance, from stress adaptation to neural plasticity, that inform best practices according to biological facts. The third layer of training is philosophical and reflexive in nature, illuminating the ways in which we approach change, commitment, relationships, and life at large. This is a process that truly reveals who we are, but also shines a light on who we can become.

What is Weightlessness?
Transform Your Body, Unburden Your Mind, Perform at Your Best
Weightlessness is a mind-body peak performance system - minimalistic, yet comprehensive - that uniquely provides targeted prescriptions and personalized solutions that address individual differences. In a domain largely dominated by astrology and positive affirmation, Weightlessness is a no-nonsense, science-based personal growth method that fine-tines your most precious resources, inoculating you against stress and volatility, and sensitizing you to opportunity and 'life' happening around you.
Weightlessness is not merely another mind-body practice. It's preparation for life.
