Thomas Walker

Gardnerville, NV 89410

I earned my doctorate in exercise physiology from the University of New Mexico and my masters in applied nutrition from Canisius College. I am an NSCA Certified Strength & Conditioning Specialist. Before founding High Desert Human Performance, I served 20 years as a physiologist for the U.S. Air Force. HDHP offers cutting-edge, scientifically sound personal training and nutritional counseling at reasonable rates. I primarily operate out of my home gym and office but I will come to your home if you desire. I have experience training world-class athletes, weekend warriors, and beginners. Training services can be purchased ala carte, for $35/hr, but there are substantial discounts for packages and regular specials.

    Dr. Walker was recommended to me after a shoulder injury that resulted in surgery. He took the program begun by my physical therapy team and turned it into a long-term strength and conditioning regiment. I'm proud to say that with Dr. Walker's help I now have a more balanced and complete workout program that has helped me reach higher fitness goals than BEFORE my surgery. I would recommend him to anyone who is looking for real-world strength coaching or performs an active job. His military education and experience are invaluable.
