2020 Transformation Program

It’s time to improve your health, drop those unwanted fat pounds, and stop the dieting. All in 12 weeks.

You ready for 12 weeks of transformation?

If there’s so much information out there about fitness and nutrition, then why are most people still struggling to get the body they want?

Hey, I’m ​Tony Rodriguez Larkin​. That’s the question that drove me to ​start Transformations Fitness almost 10 years ago. It still compels me to improve as a coach to this day.

My mission is simple: To cut through empty promises, bogus research, and confusing advice and bring an effective, personalized approach to health and fitness that anyone can use to get in better shape – even if they’ve ​attempted and failed before.

Over the past decade, I have had the honor of coaching ​hundreds of people people directly, with ​many more reading and following ​my work. These are real people with ​everyday challenges ​and I hear from them constantly through email, social media, and in​-​person.

The vast majority feel:

  • Confused about the best way to eat and exercise to actually reach their goals.
  • Overwhelmed with conflicting information that seems to change constantly.
  • Fed up with their struggle to drop weight or change their body—sometimes after years of effort.

This isn’t surprising. Why?

Well, let me ask you a few questions:

  • How often do your days start waking up tired and rushing through your day?
  • What about needing multiple drinks in the evening just to take the edge off?
  • Or mindlessly snacking on stuff you know you’ll feel guilty for eating later?
  • Or being too exhausted at the end of the day to connect with your family?

Unfortunately, it’s how many people live, day after day, year after year.

When we take a candid look at how many weeks it’s been — weeks, then months, then years — we beat ourselves up, resigned to wanting something but not being able to figure out why we can’t motivate ourselves to do something different.

I see it every single day. I’m talking about smart people who genuinely want something, but they can’t seem to make it happen. Imagine the stages someone goes through when they’re stuck like this, for years:

1: Motivation

“I know I can do this.”

2: Distraction

“I’m busy this week, but I’ll start soon.”

3: Broadcasting

“Hey guys, I really want to do this for myself.”

4: Reality Shock

“Ugh. I didn’t think it was going to be this hard.”

5: Re-Motivation

“I just read this great quote. I’m going to get serious about this.”

6: Moral Licensing

“I did well yesterday, so I can skip today.”

7: Doubt

“I thought I wanted this, but maybe I don’t.”

8: Embarassment

“Why can’t I lose weight? I’ve tried everything!”

9: Denial

“I didn’t really want this anyway.”

10: Resignation

“I’m never going to lose weight.”

When have you let your own habits, or your inner critic, hold you back from something you really want? Goals you set, plans you made, promises you proclaimed…but even though you really wanted it…it just didn’t happen.

Getting stuck happens to smart people. This happens to successful people, not just lazy lumps. There are people who are good at their jobs, have solid careers, a good group of friends… but their letting their health slip. Week by week, and the pounds start adding up.

But what if life were different?

As a student, athlete, coach, and guinea pig, I’ve put in lots of time and energy into learning about the research, the foods, the psychological tactics, the supplements, the training techniques, the mindset shifts, etc.

After almost 15 years in this industry, I can confidently say the reason most people reliably fail to get in shape comes down to one key factor: They don’t have anyone looking out for them, catering to their needs, or keeping them accountable.

Like so many other things in life, there’s a huge difference between:

  1. Trying to figure everything out on your own.
  2. Trusting the wrong sources.
  3. Having a trusted expert guide you every step of the way.

If you’ve exhausted the first two options and are ready to outsource the details of your health and fitness to experts who care and who know how to deliver long-lasting results.

This is your call-to-action where you will:

  • Have the systems and strategies to stay lean that won’t become a burden overtime.
  • ​Train with maximum efficiency and minimum fluff so you can achieve all the goals you’ve set for yourself WITHOUT missing out on the things that are most important to you. 
  • ​Know exactly how to structure your diet so you don’t have to struggle or lose progress when traveling or socializing.

And above all else, I want to show you how to use fitness as a vehicle to live your best life. To intelligently and strategically structure your training and eating so they compliment your lifestyle and allow you to enjoy the things you most desire without worry. 

Tony and Transformations Fitness is more than just exercising, it is about changing your life for the better in every aspect.

The thing that makes TF different is that I’m not just training you to build a better body. We’re training to build a better life. 

TF will make it faster and easier for you to do the things you want to do and ensure that you can get the results you desire while actually enjoying your life. 

Imagine taking your internal thought process from:

“I don’t know where to start. There’s so much different advice out there. It’s overwhelming.”


“There are so many exciting things I want to do. The common denominator is ME. I have the confidence to pick one and go all in. If it doesn’t work, that’s fine — I’ll just move on to the next. I believe in myself and my habits to follow through, even when it gets hard.”

Here’s another example:

“How am I supposed to get ahead when I’m so busy / I keep getting distracted by new stuff / my boss keeps giving me last-minute work / I don’t have enough money? It must be nice to be able to focus on one thing. But something always comes up for me.”

We can reframe this thought process to…

“I used to think that once I made it, I wouldn’t face these kinds of challenges. But now I realize that the more successful I am, the more challenges I’ll face — bigger, tougher ones. But I can become stronger to handle each and every one of them. I know I can do it because I’ve done it in the past and I’ll do it in the future.”

Time to learn the knowledge and systems to create your success.

All you have to do is put in the work (but it can still be fun).

Serious Applicants Only – Space is Limited…

I want to make sure each and every person who I work with gets the guidance they need to maximize their results. An important part of that is working with those who are ready to commit to doing what it takes to take their body to the next level.

Gain Strength & Flexibility, Decrease Body Fat & Inches, Gain Energy, Productivity & Confidence

☑️ Move Better: Your individualized program is designed to improve your “movement health”. Movement health allows us to improve our mobility and stability and improve the full range of motion necessary for everyday activities.

☑️ Look Better: Success is measured by more than just the number on the scale. I focus on body transformation, meaning you won’t just lose pounds, but also completely reshape your body. This is tracked through pictures, body fat % and clothing sizes.

☑️ Feel Better: Any workout can make you tired, but only a periodized, progressive workout can make you better. A fit and healthy lifestyle goes way beyond just a workout.

If one is honestly interested in improving their lifestyle and learning how to better care for their total being, Tony and his program are a definite must try.

Q: Who is this program for?

This program is for busy folks need a boost of motivation and coaching to lose body fat. This is also for you if you haven’t been part of Transformations Fitness for awhile. Join the program if you’re tired of the way you look and feel. If you are nervous about starting (especially if you haven’t worked out in a long time), I will encourage you to sign up.

You don’t have to be in shape to get in shape. This program is for all levels of fitness as long as you aren’t afraid of some hard work. You’ll get coached to pace yourself in every session, and exercises can be modified or changed completely, if needed.

I don’t follow the “no pain, no gain” mentality. I understand that your life does not revolve around your workouts and that some days you’ll feel better than others. The goal is not to beat you up with exercise, but to help you progress each workout. As you’ve heard, fitness is a lifestyle, not a quick fix. There’s no better time than now to reignite your mind and body with exercise, nutrition, activities and learning.

Q: What are the training sessions like?

My Semi-Private Training sessions are specifically designed to increase your mobility and flexibility, increase your movement range, build strength and increase your metabolism so you continue to burn fat all day long.

I create three monthly programs for you that incorporate up to four (4) workouts per week that will vary in movements, exercise modalities and body parts.

To paint a clearer picture, most sessions begin with a muscle activation warm-up to improve your flexiblity, mobility, and coordination. After the warm-up, you’ll go through some core training to tighten your stomach and maintain your posture. These exercises also prime your body for the strength training that follows. Strength training is done with a variety of implements that are chosen based off your initial consult to best serve your goals. This is meant to tone your muscles and strengthen your bones to keep you healthy. Sessions usually end with short-burst cardio training to condition your heart and lungs, improve your endurance and increase fat burning.

For all these movements, I have modifications and progressions for all levels of fitness. (You don’t have to be in shape to get in shape).

Q: When and where is this program available?

This program is available in Kakaako Fitness on 815 Waimanu Street, Honolulu, HI 96813. You can schedule training sessions anytime from 8AM – 12PM from Monday through Saturday. Evening sessions are available from 4 – 8PM Monday through Thursday.

Q: What if I don’t get results?

Here at Transformations Fitness, I want to put my money where my mouth is because it’s the right thing to do. With this program, I guarantee your results. If you show up to your sessions, follow the nutrition guide and recipes and you’re not happy with your results by the end of the forth week, I’ll give you every penny back. Simple as that.

Q: How often will I train?  What if I miss a session?

With this program, you have a custom training plan for up to four (4) workouts/week. Two of those workouts each week will be coached by a certified coach.

If you miss a session, you may make it up at another day or time within the twelve (12) weeks. Contact me and let me know when you plan on making up the session.
