Tim Fredenburg of the Garage Training Facility in Garden City has led an interesting life journey, and had used that experience to hone his skills, learn his craft, and build his own business.\
At 17, Tim was offered multiple hockey scholarships, but decided to sign a contract with the Chicago Blackhawks. He began playing with the Blackhawks IHL team and moved to the Windsor Spitfires, but was traded to the Detroit Red Wings, and played for the Anarondac farm team. He did make it to the “big team” for three games.
Along the way, he studied martial arts and began fighting in what is now UFC mixed martial arts, and quickly moved to the professional ranks. A bid to compete in the 1984 Olympics ended with a career-ending injury which left him without the strength to skate again.
Tim has been studying muscle kinesiology and the effect on the neurological system for the past 25 years. He learned how to work muscles and started to develop his functional pattern training.
He and his wife Dee decided to open a personal training gym to help clients meet their personal goals. Tim said that he has a 99% success rate when students follow the guidelines and stay on task.
“I have more than 30 years of experience,” said Tim. I know what works and what doesn’t.”
Tim said he helps people to understand their bodies and their own metabolism, and teaches them how to manage their weight.
Not one to just be a spectator, Tim plays softball at the professional level and his team has won national titles and several World Series. He also competes in body building contests and has placed at the top in Mr. Michigan Contest and the Western Classics.
