Billy Hofacker has been in the personal training industry for almost 20 years. He has had a variety of experiences within different settings in the personal training field. He first began working at a local gym for a few months and then began working in a “Gym on Wheels.” Here he would travel to his clients’ homes and conduct their sessions within the truck set up with workout equipment. It was a fun time for Billy and he was able to learn a lot from those sessions. He then moved on to a physical therapy setting and was the head trainer there. After his time ended there he went back to school to earn his degree in Exercise Science and Nutrition from Queens College. Billy Hofacker has also received his certification under NSCA as a certified strength and conditioning specialist.
Billy began training people in his home, one on one as he was working towards his degree. He started his personal training business under the name Hofeman Fitness Systems and quickly became very successful on his own. He began meeting people and developing relationships. He worked very hard in building his clientele and people soon began seeing results like they had never seen before. He would develop a nutritional and exercise plan specific to their needs and goals. Then in May of 2004, Billy had the idea to hold a short term boot camp in which a group of his clients (and new clients) could get together and add a new dynamic to their workouts. Instead of just the usual working out one on one, he built a system of support for his clients through the group aspect. The outcome would later on lead to Total Body Boot Camp.
As time went on, Billy continued to work as a personal trainer while pursuing his love of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and eventually working full-time at a local Jiu-Jitsu gym when he wasn’t training clients at home. The thought then occurred to him to start the boot camp back up but this time go further with it! Thus began the idea and planning of Total Body Boot Camp.
In February of 2010, Billy held his first boot camp session at an indoor soccer training facility in Lindenhurst. With another trainer on board and a growing clientele, we quickly outgrew our initial facility and took our show on the road. Sessions were held at Fireman’s Park in Lindenhurst.
When the NY weather started turning cold, TBBC found our current facility in Farmingdale. We began holding our AM classes there in the downstairs portion of the building in October of 2010. Soon we had more than just a handful of clients and saw a need for more class times. We then began our 9:15AM classes as well as some of our current evening classes. Soon, the opportunity opened up for us to gain more floor space and we moved all of our evening classes to the upstairs portion of the building. We have 2,000 square feet available to us…just for TBBC!
So now we come upon 2013 with soooo many new and exciting additions! We not only have regular team training classes in the AM and PM but we now have kickboxing and small group sessions! We have grown quite a bit and it all started with a passion to help people feel better about themselves and to achieve the health and fitness goals they wanted to achieve.
We hope that you find a home here with us! Check out our website and see all that TBBC has to offer you! Maybe it will be our large group sessions or small group sessions but you can always give us a try with our one month trial. Click here to learn more about it!
